While it is not a rare thing to happen, relationship between different classes can be quite difficult to handle. Although social difference have been tackled with expertly since ancient time when kings or queens chose their consorts from the commoners, people still find dating people of different social status a big hurdle.
The cultural as well as economic gap can be stifling at times especially if you are into black women white men dating or interracial dating. If you are considering of dating a millionaire, knowing how to deal with the social difference will help you face the obstacles successfully.
Money and power
Money entails power and this is apt when it comes to millionaire dating. Financial resources are inevitably associated with power. The resulting power imbalance can be quite problematic not only in marriage but while you date too.
Since everyone likes to be equal to their partner in all aspects this financial gap can wreak havoc, if not immediately at a later date too. The partner who has fewer resources will feel disempowered and controlled by the other. Try to talk about the difference in the initial stages so it does not blow out of proportion.
All work and no play
If the millionaire you are dating is a self-made one, it is natural to expect him to work all the time. He may live and breathe work, which can put a big wrench in your dating plans. While he may not accept your demand of changing the work and life balance, you can possibly reframe a few of his priorities so that he could spend more time with you. Some things you can suggest include:
• Stress on a date every week without fail whether it is during his lunch hour or a full-fledged date
• Explain the amount of work he has to do to keep the relationship going which is spending time attention and passion on it just like he does in relation to his work.
In short, you have to ask him to invest his time in the relationship so it flourishes well.
Most often when you date a millionaire, he would not only be out of the financial bracket you are in but also not of your age group. This age gap can be a big drawback when you want to socialize. This is more so in interracial dating like black women white men dating.
Your friends may seem immature to him, while you will find his too stuffy for your tastes. To prevent a fall out because of this difference, you need to make sure you can limit the number of your friends you meet up with when you are with your date. The same goes for when he invites his friends too.
And try to do activities when you are in a group instead of just a dinner to help engage everyone present. The shared experience will be a memorable one for all gathered. And remember that it is you and your partner who matter here and not your friends, so keep a lid on the expectations of bonding big time with each other’s friends.
The path of millionaire dating is not full of roses always and nor is it filled with thorns. You are bound to face issues just as in any other relationship except in this situation it is a case of big money. But no problem is insurmountable when you are determined to work on it and make it right.
