She's a Rich Girl (Men's Best)

Somehow you got her to date you. She’s hot, she’s smart and she’s loaded. She’s a rich girl, banking and rolling with deep pockets. And then there’s your broke, Average Joe ass trying to keep up with Miss Moneybags. Now you know the truth -- that you can’t keep up with her. But she can’t find that out. No man wants to face that he’s completely outgunned by his rich girl. So, start taking notes, poor ass, because here are some tips on keeping a rich girl happy without spending money.

Be romantic and creative

One of the most important ways you can avoid burning through cash is being romantic. Using your connections to hook up cool stuff like having a friend's band play at her birthday party, cooking for her or the age-old favorite of a candlelit dinner are all great ways to keep the green while dating a rich girl. What you're shooting for is to create experiences for her that others might not take the time and effort to arrange. She's a rich girl, which means she can buy herself fancy clothes and expensive jewelry, but she can’t give herself heartfelt moments that’ll make her melt.

Be ambitious

She's a rich girl, which means she's probably surrounded by guys with money who are living off their daddies and sleeping until noon and then golfing all day. Show her that you have passion and plans for the future. Few things drive a woman wild like a man with ambition and drive. You may be a broke student now, but she should be able to see that if she invests her attention in you now, it won’t just lead to dead ends down the road. Women like to know that a man has a plan to be more and get more.

Keep up your appearance

A fit, well-groomed man is something that doesn’t carry a price tag. You can’t compare bank accounts and you can’t take her around the world for lunch, but you can exercise and make sure you don’t look like crap. You can work out around the house or run outside without spending a dime. Even if you don’t have a brand new Armani wardrobe, you can look like you’re worth more than you really are (on paper.) Clothes will hang better on a toned body, and she’ll find you more attractive. If you already have looks on your side, use them to advantage.

She's a rich girl, but you can still keep her happy...

Talk to her in a way others don’t

She comes from money and money means power. Little Miss Deep Pockets has been coddled, bowed down to and given the world on a silver platter. Sycophants don’t get laid, and they don’t make her happy. Forget how deep she rolls. Don’t be intimidated by her wealth. She’s flesh and blood like you. Don’t suck up to her and hold your own. Tell her like it is and treat her like you would any other person. Don’t overdo it and go out of your way to be a dick (you’re trying to keep this girl, right?). Be interesting, genuine and interested in her.

Stay confident and don't be bitter

It doesn't cost anything to be the man. If you walk around with your head low and your back hunched, you’re going home alone. If she wants to foot the bill, hell, let her. If she wants to do things together that you can’t afford, be upfront about it. But never, ever slink like a beat puppy or be angry at her just because she has multiple zeroes on her paycheck and you just have a zero. If you lose your confidence, she’ll lose her attraction, and you’ll lose the girl.

goin' with an uptown girl

Keeping any woman happy is damn near impossible. But near impossible is still possible. With the added burden of a fine thing that’s loaded, you’ve got another level of intimidation and difficulty. But man up and remember she’s just another girl. Confidence, ambition will mean more to her than any 401K, investment portfolio or bank account balance.

How To Know If She Is Interested (Men's Best)

You see her from a distance. Her hair cascades past her shoulders and she is just the perfect height. She walks ever so slightly toward you and brushes by with a quick glance over her shoulder. Was that on purpose?

Hold on there, fella. Before you go for the plunge and ask her out to dinner, how can you be sure that she is really that into you? Let’s look at the signs and figure this out.

1.She Makes Sure to Say Hello to You Everyday
Did she have you at hello? As lame as that sounds, making sure that you are greeted each and every day is a sure sign that she is interested in you. It is a sign that acknowledging your existence is a priority and that she never forgets that you are around.

2.She Includes You in Her Plans
You might be sitting at your cubicle (if you work together) around lunchtime, minding your own business as you watch the paint dry. You hear that oh-so-familiar laugh of hers as she converses with the people in the next row. If you suddenly get tapped on the shoulder and you turn around to a lunch invitation with her and the gang, then that is a definite good sign.

3.She Touches Your Arm While You Talk to One Another
As slight as it may be, there is nothing like her touching your arm whenever she responds to something that you just said. This contact could be a sign of flirting or her way of saying, “ask me out already.”

4.Suddenly, She’s Into Baseball Too
You might have mentioned a couple times that you play baseball on the weekends or show up on Casual Friday with a cap on. Regardless, she’s taken notice and surprises you one day with a question about the doubleheader over the weekend. If she is suddenly taking interest in something that you are into, she is most likely interested in you, too.

5.She Dresses Up and Makes Sure That You Notice
You already think that she’s beautiful, but what if one day you notice that she’s wearing something new? If she changed her hair a bit or walks by sassily in a new pair of jeans, it probably means that she wants you to notice. Women love to get complimented on the way they look and if she passes by you a number of times or asks you if you like her new haircut, then she probably did it for you.

So gentlemen, take notice and pay attention. Women know what they want, and what they want may be you.

What NOT to do on a first date (Men's Best)

We all have phobias. There is fear of flying, deep water, heights, and clowns. People cringe about speaking in public. Well, what about first dates?

If you are among the general public who has gone on a first date, you know that it can be extremely nerve wracking or unbearable. Of course that depends on whom you are with and what actually occurs during this time. In fact, it might even actually go well. And date number one could eventually lead to date number two.

So before you put on that shiny number or spray yourself with another dash of that musky cologne, keep in mind that there are certain rules to follow. Sure, you’re probably running ideas through your head of how to impress, but don’t forget about the things that you should avoid.

Don’t Be Late

This goes for both of you. There is nothing worse than being late, especially when meeting someone for the first time. If you are certain that you may run behind, have the decency to call your date and let them know. First dates can be compared to job interviews. Think of your date as your potential interviewer and remember that first impressions count. If you’re late, well, hopefully your date isn’t more time-conscious than you are.

Don’t Talk About Your Ex

We all know that it takes a good while to get over our ex-loves. And going out for the first time since the breakup might be the perfect solution to this problem. But once you are sitting face-to-face with someone you barely know, why would you open up this can of worms? First dates have the potential of eventually turning into something worthwhile and talking about our pasts really spoils the mood. To save yourself from embarrassment (breaking down and crying), disinterest, or the end of your dinner, it would be best to ignore this horrible topic of conversation.

Don’t Text During Dinner

Texting has become the new telephone call. We all text nowadays because it is so convenient for quick little conversations with our friends. However, when your date tries to woo you and you don’t notice because you’re typing “OMG” and “LOL” to your best friend, how do you think that makes the other one feel? That’s right, like chopped liver.

Don’t Forget Your Wallet

Ladies, it’s easy and wonderful to assume that he would pay, right? But what if he doesn’t? We do live in a modern world, and as most people know, times are hard. So be prepared by bringing a little extra cash. That’ll save any potential situation that might arise.

So have fun, flirt a little and enjoy your time out. But don’t forget to follow these tips to ensure a good time!
