There isn’t a lot to hate about online dating. It’s easy. It’s convenient. It gives you access to sexy, beautiful women that you may never have met by conventional dating. It’s easier to bail on relationships that aren’t going well. Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks to online dating is it can be tough to tell the difference between women who are actually interested in you and those after what you have to offer them. And in some cases, that’s money.

She Wants Presents

It’s normal for anyone to want to feel pampered. It’s not normal for a woman to ask for a gift from you every single day, particularly if you still haven’t met in person. If she only seems interested in you when you’re buying her things, she’s out for your wallet. Another sign is if she asks for gifts in exchange for doing things for you. An example: you ask her to get on webcam with you for some naughty video fun and her automatic reply is, “What do I get if I do?” If this is always the case, cut your losses and run. You don’t want to be the idiot who wastes thousands of dollars on a selfish person who treats everything as a quid-pro-quo.

She Only Wants to Do Things That Involve Money

A woman that only wants do to things that involve you paying for her is a huge warning sign. For example, your first few dates may be to places like restaurants and movies and she’s never offered to pay. Now she wants to go places that are more expensive and she acts like it’s your duty to foot the bill. There’s nothing wrong with a guy paying for a date. But there is with a woman wanting to go to places that are very expensive and never help with the bill. If this is the case, mention that you’d like it if she could chip in once in a while. If she gets pissy about it, it’s time to move on.

Money is All She Talks About

If your conversation with a woman you’ve met online seems to linger on money? She’s dropping a not-so-subtle hint. Especially if it’s something she brings up as soon as the two of you start communicating. If she asks you about how much you make, what kind of car you drive, and what kind of place you live in right away? She’s testing the waters to see if you can afford the lifestyle she wants. If you’re still not sure, ask her point blank if money is important to her. If the answers yes, cut her loose.

She Treats You like a Bank

If she’s asking you to loan her money before you’ve ever met in person, money is her only concern. No matter how sweet or sexy she seems, don’t give her what she wants. Chances are there’s a string of dumb guys she’s left behind that have done exactly the same. Instead, blow her off and focus on the other ladies you’ve met.
