One of my friends said that if a man with money is in a relationship with a girl who likes to spend the guy's money on clothes, cars, and other gifts, then that girl basically a prostitute. The women in our group mostly disagreed with this, but some actually agreed with this notion. The situation with Tiger Woods was brought up as well, and we all pretty much agreed that the women who cavorted with Tiger were pretty much all prostitutes to a degree, because Tiger Woods is the wealthiest, most powerful sports star out in public today and he is not a guy blessed with good looks.

What are you thoughts on this topic? Do you think that Golddiggers are really the same as prostitutes? Or are they different from prostitutes?
There is a very distinct difference. An escort (Im not using street prostitutes in my example) unless she works for an agency is usually independent and some are very beautiful women. While she does live off men the way a golddigger does (this is different too and I will get to that momentarily) she charges $200 an hour for a man to have sex with her, and she does this with many multiple men, probably easily nets $1000 a day if she;s beautiful enough

But thats what escorts (or prostitutes are for) Its just 30 mins or an hours worth of sex and then thats it. Its done, its over with. It will only continue if you choose to call the escort of pick one up does the money continue to disappear

With a golddigger however it is different. True she is using you for your money, it doesnt end after you bust a nut during sex. She's still there. Golddiggers are one man women, unless they truly are whores. They will only leave if you go broke, or if you get rid of them yourselves by breaking up with them. In turn they will most likely find another rich successful man to spend his money on her

So escorts and golddiggers both depend on men for money BUT a golddigger does it one man at a time for many months or even years on end until money dries up or he dumps her for a younger woman.

An escort makes money off of thousands of men over the years, and is very well off financially because the money is HERS once the men give it to her in exchange for sex (or a dinner date, or whatever, sex isnt ALWAYS involved) But she the escort is earning money in her own way while the golddigger just mooches off of one millionaire and will starve finanically until she finds another man or goes off to earn money on her own, through escorting, or getting an education or whatever

Does this make sense?

Wake up to reality, men. When you are average looking, have average means, average intelligence and average masculinity you don't get the super model and you don't get the gal who looks like the porn star. You get an average woman. There are plenty of average women ready and available to you, but you think you deserve better. You don't.
So we can dispense with the "men are shallow pigs who are only interested in looks while poor saintly women just want a nice guy with a nice personality but can't ever find one" nonsense then?

Isnt the gold digger earning the money same as the escort. So basically your saying the escort is paid in the cash which is hers to keep while the GD is paid in gifts and upkeep unless she is wise enough to get a marriage certificate so she can then get half of his possessions and a monthly stipend. The two just have different investment strategies.

Women say "men are shallow pigs" for the same reason men say "women are gold diggers." Women who say it are of average looks yet are chasing after a man who is out of her league, and after a while she gets the same sour grapes that you see on this thread.

When one dates outside of his or her league, failure is most likely the outcome. Average men rarely get the top-notch women, and average women rarely get the top-notch men. The chubby, plain girl doesn't get the dashing financier, and the plain middle income guy doesn't get the super model. Both need to stop their complaining and come back down to Planet Earth.

Something my friend's teenage son said recently really fits: Not everyone gets to ride a Harley. Some of us have to ride a scooter, some of us a bicycle, and some of us have to walk. That's just the way it is.

LOL, I love it!!!!


The problem is that there's an overall lack of awareness of one's self (or just plain old denial) in this forum.

Tried to rep you, but apparently I think too much of your thoughts and CD is determined to control me!

That's just an excuse a lot of guys like to make when they get dumped and they happened to spend more than $100 on the girl, or if the wife gets alimony she is automatically labeled a gold digger on this board it seems.
If she passes on Mickey D's, perhaps she is one. But I find out ahead of time, and if a time comes when I get paid some bonus at work, and actually have a little extra to go out and eat, perhaps someone I've been with a while can enjoy a better restaurant with me. But I almost never go out, because I can't AFFORD to do so. I pay $1200 a month for rent and utilities, and somewhere between $200 and $250 on food. There isn't anything left.

Not even for McDonald's.
