10 Reasons Why Rich Men are Better than Poor Ones

The cold hard reasons why you should hook up with the former and ditch the later.

Here are the reasons why you should hookup with the former and ditch the latter

1. If you are with a rich man, you're entitled to a VIP pass

Being on the arm of a rich guy will land you on the best seats on a restaurant or a bar. A poor dude won't have access on those. You may just be stuck on the smoker's area or on the table nearest the restroom.

2. Dating a rich guy is a self-esteem booster

Going out with a rich man is indeed a self-esteem booster. You'd feel lucky that even though he can choose any other girl he wants to, given his status, he had chosen you. So, there must be really something in you. Let this be your mantra, “a beautiful girl deserves a good catch”.

3. Your chance for a dream vacation would be possible

Have you been wishing to go on the Bahamas or go on a European cruise? You may coyly tell your rich boyfriend that you want to unwind with him without the hassle and bustle of the city life. If he asks you where could it possibly be? Here's you chance! Suggest a place you've been dying to see. With a poor dude, it will all be just a fantasy.

4. Generally, rich men have less “drama” than poor ones

A rich man may have an enormous ego so he would be afraid to pour out his dramas on you. Besides, he may be contented enough with his life because he's already where he wanted to be. In a poor man's case, you will probably be listening to a list of bills he has to pay (he may even borrow money from you).

5. It’s about the ride, baby

A rich man will bring you to a party on his Porsche or Cadillac while a poor guy may just tell you to meet him there or take the cab with you going to your date. Hailing for a cab may ruin the looks you had spent hours to fix.

6. As a rich man’s main squeeze, you gain popularity

From Miss Nobody, you’d be known as Mr. Rich Man’s girl. Admit it, the attention you will get from other people will be flattering. Some poor girls may be envious of your newly acquired status, but surely, they will trade anything to be in the spotlight. On the contrary, will anybody give you a second look if you’re some poor dude’s date?

7. Expensive gifts will surely come your way

It will be such a shame for a rich guy to scrimp on the presents he will give you. A rich man can afford extravagant gifts. Let him (accidentally) see you browsing over a magazine, salivating over a Cartier watch or the latest Louis Vuitton bag. Before you know it, the presents will be coming your way. When you’re dating a poor guy, everything will be budgeted, and probably you’ll just get a fluffy card on special occasions.

8. Your parents will most likely approve of the rich guy

I am not saying that parents are materialistic but they would rather see their beautiful daughter going out with a cultured rich guy. At least, you won’t have to waste your time and your breath explaining to them why you are dating your man right now. If you’re with some poor dude, Mom would be bugging you every chance she gets, asking you over and over again what you saw in that man… and your answer will never be right.

9. You’d have a nice feel on how it is to be in the elite circle

You’d gain socialite girlfriends, thanks to him. But be warned, you should know how to play your cards with the rich femme fatales. Some of them (maybe 99%) can be hypocritical brats. Just in case you need to ditch your rich boyfriend, you’d easily get another rich one since you’re already moving in the so-called upper echelon.

10. Rich men can afford to pamper you

Who would not like a good amount of comfort, right? You’d be booked in the finest five-star hotels. You’d be able to taste the expensive hobby of the rich and famous, you’d be wined and dined in the best places. This may be in a Material Girl’s point of view, but in reality, women would rather be with a rich guy, not only for his money, but because of the power that comes with it. I don’t have any explanation in regard to the poor man’s case. Just ask him yourself. Oh nevermind, he may just feel darn insecure.
