People that think being affluent is bad are people that don't have money. They don't have the ability to enjoy the life of someone with money. The affluent life is rife with difficulties that the everyday person has no idea about. That life style requires a unique dating experience. An experience filled with singles that understand money – what it means to have it and what it means to life. That type of person cannot be found just anywhere.

Rich people must worry about many things less fortunate people must concern themselves with. For one, gold diggers. People that are simply interested in getting as much money out of a rich person as they can are everywhere. Dating sites are full of them. Luckily, with a bit of effort on your part, you can single out people with the wrong idea about affluent dating and focus on the ones that matter in your life.

Rich men dating sites are available today that help weed out the less than desirable singles but they are not perfect. To best protect yourself, and your money, we have a few tips available. These tips work for rich women looking for men too because being a gold digger knows no gender.

Check out the profile of potential romantic interests. If their user name is something with "gold" or "digger" in it, or even less obvious "want" or "get" then you probably are looking at a gold digger. Also, while on their profile, make sure to read what they wrote about themselves. Stating they are "used to the good life" or deserve it then you probably have a gold digger. Now unless you like just handing money away, it would probably be best to not contact or accept a message from those types. There are much better quality singles out there.

Many of the sites that cater to affluent members will have some form of verification of financial status for its members. This keeps the financial level of members high. Single sites like this are best for people wanting to date within their financial range. After all, to best understand the value of money is to date someone that has their own.
Gold diggers can be deceptive though. They may not be obvious in their profiles and account names. These people are sneaky and some are willing to put in a lot of work to get just a bit of your money.

If you are talking with someone and you have not met them in person yet and they are already asking about your financial situation, drop them. If they are asking for money to "pay a bill" or "borrow" and you are just messaging, or even early in the relationship, drop them. There is no excuse for that type of activity. A person that is a gold digger will slip those things in during casual conversation so pay attention to what you are agreeing to.

Being affluent and dating can be tough. It is hard to tell if someone is genuinely interested in you and not just your money and what you can give them. The best thing to do is keep your distance and don't get emotionally invested too soon, you just may be dating a gold digger and won't find out till it is too late.
