4 Ways to Bed a Gold Digger (and send me running)

4 Ways to Bed a Gold Digger (and send me running) list dating update  iStock 000011778293XSmall 300x225Today’s post was supposed to be centered on some new data release by Match.com. My regular readers know that I data. IT.  But alas, I’ve had no time to write a coherent post on the topic.  Seriously, it’s already past noon on a Friday and I’m just now getting to my Friday post. I usually have those written the night before.

Sheesh.

So anyways, I’ll get to that tomorrow.  Instead, here’s a little list/rant inspired by last night’s date.  It wasn’t, if you haven’t guessed, a good one.

4 Ways to Bed a Gold Digger (and send me running)

  1. When I ask you to tell me more about yourself, reply, “I could retire tomorrow if I wanted to.”
  2. Go into great detail about your apartment, the penthouse with amazing views of the city.
  3. Talk about your new race car.
  4. Belittle the fact that other people are so fond of travel, as you travelled so much as a child you don’t get why other people make such a big deal about it.

In case anyone is wondering, we’d actually had a really nice phone conversation a few days before the date. He came off as humble and kind of goofy.

Oh well, so I wasted a couple of hours…
