Why is a man not clamoring to reserve his weekends for you, or take you on a short vacation, or meet your friends and family? I need a man who is looking for a relationship and you don’t seem to be that guy.
Yes, the old clichés are true: the truth hurts — and it also sets you free. Sign he’s just not into you: He says he’s not relationship material. If he says that he’s not looking for a relationship, he doesn’t believe in marriage, he’s not relationship material, or he’s just “having fun,” don’t try to read beyond those words.
Either he’s not into you, or he’s not into commitment in general.
Your Tango's top experts dish on the seven telltale signs that he's dating you for your money.1. Whether you're a partner in a law firm, a successful entrepreneur or simply one of the many women who is very good at her job and is well-compensated for her skills, any lady of means is a possible sugar mama.
So how do you know if a man is after you or your wallet?
Spira makes the case for why conversations about finances must take place in any relationship. Being unemployed or working part-time doesn't mean a guy is a gold digger.
"You need to know how you would be sharing expenses and his values towards spending, credit and savings."6. But if he doesn't have career ambitions and is content to spend your money, that's a red flag.
Recent widows and divorcees can become providers as well."Perhaps [the potential sugar mama's] spouse has died and she was left a significant amount of money. Diana Kirschner takes it in the opposite direction by stressing that he'll be a total gentleman when you first meet. She mentions that "If the person is a true gold digger, it can be hard to tell in the beginning because he's often are putting on a full-court press in order to win you."Spira backs this up by saying that these charming men will pull out all of the stops just so you'll fall for them. She confirms that "Often they will pretend to have their own money, but in reality, they are borrowing from Visa to pay Mastercard [so they can] finance the relationship until you're hooked."Eventually he'll stop paying for things and assume that you'll provide and pay for things most or all of the time.3. Does he only like to go to the fanciest restaurants? That's why Julie Spira advises "If you're concerned someone is dating you for your money, leave your wallet and purse behind." Don't let yourself fall into the trap of buying or accepting extravagant gifts.4.
Sometimes she is financially secure due to her divorce settlement. First, they'll pay for everything until you're interested, and then BAM. He has financial troubles, and they're never his fault.

There’s a huge difference between giving a guy six weeks to choose you over the other women he’s dating…
You win this one by assessing his efforts and concluding that you’re wasting your time.
I found it frustrating – but really, I was feeling frustration on HER behalf. She’s the type of client I’d be friends with in real life. Like Tanya – and my wife – she was trying to be the cool girl, but she took it too far. this probably means that he’s a) dating other people and isn’t sure whether I’m “the one” OR b) he’s just not that into me and using me for now.” This doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy. I was the one who was making the effort to see her more. He’ll know that his string of good luck has come to an end. When the relationship is growing – like it was for me in 2007 – you may just have a moment like this: One night, when we were eating Chinese food and watching TV, I turned to my future-bride-to-be and said, “I think you’re my girlfriend.” She said, with a coy smile, “I think I am.” It was that simple.
