The obvious reasons for dating ...someone with more financial clout than you :
PROTECTION From hunger
In this era of recessions and Financial chaos ...one cannot over-estimate the implications of having a sound financial security.In the past,the role of financial protection fell on men.Now,women as well as men ...have the burden of taking care of financial issues.There are many unseen ...circumstances that could lead to one having insufficient financial protection.And so,any credible chance to assure ...your financial future through your choice of a partner,should be entertained.The problem of starvation...(a struggle with food provision)can be solved by financial stability.Some
of us cannot stand the worries of food scarcity.And having ruled out the probability of any other source of financial remedy;dating could be the answer.
PROTECTION from class or status discrimination
I am ...one of those who believe,that class or status is self-perceived.It can also be
arbitrarily apportioned by others.And so,one can envisage themselves in one class contrary to their reality.If it is possible ..to upgrade their status by the choice of your partner,some will do it.There are privileges associated with having a higher status than most...It protects you from certain kinds of discrimination.And some cannot bear ...what others think about them.So what can they do...to "permanently " guard against discrimination?Some have decided to date and mix ...with higher status to gain higher class.What else can I say..?
PROTECTION from low self esteem issues
....There is a feeling that ...poverty is always a result of laziness.And wealth is the reward of the brave.As a consequence...when some find themselves in a less comfortable financial situation than expected,they feel inadequate.Low self esteem resulting from financial inadequacies demands remedy with financial stability.And in order to prevent themselves from these feelings,they attempt to date higher earners.Unfortunately,self esteem issues may have their roots deeper than financial short-comings.And a bid ...to conquer their fears by dating someone with a higher financial muscle only exacerbates the problem.
PROTECTION from physical discomforts.
Luxury in daily life...is one of the top motivations to strive for financial stability.We do no want to walk,when we can drive [or be driven].We do not want ...to eat two "round"meals,when we can eat three square meals with snacks in between.We do not want to go ...to public schools when we can afford private ones.We do not want to work 7 days a week...when we can work for any number ..we chose,and "chillax"for the remaining.[or go on oversee traveling ]We do not want to be ...at the back rows of concerts and shows,when we can be ...at the premium or VIP sections of events.You can avoid ...a lot of present day physical discomfort by dating [and essentially making it probable that ...they could become a partner]someone who has more financial earning power.I personally...do not find any luxury,"luxurious enough".One can never be satisfied with an level of luxury.So I take ...the philosophical view of enjoying whatever condition I find myself,and work hard ...to prevent it from going backwards.IF IT GOES ...FORWARD,I THANK MY STARS,and GOD[and my many well-wishers]Simple.
The not-so-obvious reasons for dating...someone with more financial clout than you
A SENSE of adventure
We do not know...what life can hand us,most of the time.Life is like a box...of something [with different assortments]When you dip your hand in...to pick one;anything could come out of that action.It is ...this understanding that leads us to develop a strong sense of adventure.There is a small urge[in some cases,a big one]to put your valuables at risk to see what is at the turn of the next corner.And so...many chose to date someone out of their financial 'class'[usually,higher]to see what happens;It could be fun,they say to themselves.And some times...it turns out exciting and satisfying.You find..old cares and responsibilities taken off your hands.And other times[depending upon your personality and philosophy]It could lead to loss of self identity and self -dignity.
A SENSE of a mundane lifestyle
This is akin...to the last reason[but differs a bit].It has to do with ...realisation that your life is now boring[has being the same over a long period].And you wish to change it a bit.One can choose to date a different kind of person[from the kind they normally date]And dating someone with considerable more financial status ...is one option.As I said earlier it differs from the last reason.And this is because,it is not a sense of adventure[a desire for constant change]but,a dissatisfaction with a stale status quo.[a desire for a change after a long,long while].
A SENSE of a spiritual entitlement.
Well,this ...can be hard to detect or diagnose.Some people have an almost spiritually based belief that they should be financially wealthy.It resides somewhere ...in their subconscious that ...they should never accept a financially mundane lifestyle.[IT IS NOT MEANT FOR THEM].And the consequence of this belief system is ...an attempt at anything to become financially affluent.I believe,such individuals...are capable of a lot of devious actions,to get rich.And so,if an opportunity...comes along,in the dating front[that would provide them with what they want]...they would grab it with "three hands".
A SENSE of revenge
...Unfortunately,most of us are prone to negative motivation.When someone ...says you can never be something[or achieve a feat];there is a force,within most of us to prove them wrong.It is a major ...reason some people have their life course altered for good or bad.When someone says...you will never amount to anything good;it pinches your self pride.Unfortunately,it leads some to do things...they would never have dreamt they would attempt.When your talents and hard work ..seem to be insufficient.And the taunting words and voice of your enemies...is ringing in your mind.What do you do?You go ...on a hunting spree for the highest bidder.You specifically target...anyone who is richer than you,and reject anyone who is,on the opposite of that spectrum.This is ...what I say to minds that think REVENGE is a good idea.You probably think,you are defending your way of thinking [and consequently,your life]but,you are actually doing the opposite.Imagine [if you can]...a multitude of hands pinching your body.If you response to all of them...would you go anywhere?No.You have to make a choice...as to what you want to do,irrespective of the distracting stimuli.If you find...you cannot ignore something;PRAY.[that is what I do]And let God and nature...take their course.REVENGE is never an OPTION for me.I try to defend myself but,retribution is for God or KARMA.
A SENSE of happiness
On a better note...we can decide to date someone with a better financial clout than you because,you are already happy with everything else.Yes,you ...could still be seen as a gold-digger.However,why should you deny yourself ...a gift?If someone with more income offers a date with you?Why should you reject it... solely on the basis of what others would think?The universe ...sees you as happy,and consequently...you are attracting more happiness.You would be stupid to reject it.You can feel you are happy [at the moment]and imagine dating...someone richer, could make you even happier?Please, this is ..different from,someone who is unhappy,and thinks dating a richer person would turn them into a happy individual.IT DOES NOT WORK.
A SENSE of self-value.
...Finally,this reason stems from...an evaluation of oneself.A profile description of your behaviour,style and personality .And concluding that it demands..a partner with more earning power.I would not go ...into detail with this one[...because it could be termed sexist]Actually,it is not...because,it could refer to both sexes.However,at the moment ...it is mostly females that have this reason as a valid one.
