Maggie Archer, a 20-year-old student from Missouri, has a pretty interesting strategy and it seems to be working, in a way.
She simply writes, “Send me , see what happens.” That’s right, instead of using the app to find a date, Archer is using Tinder to scam money off gullible men, Buzz Feed reports. The student reveals that as soon as she matches with a guy and he inquires about the cryptic fee, she encourages him to send the money via Paypal.
And that’s before you’ve considered kindness, compatibility, attraction, values, height, weight, age, humor, children, etc. We’re not looking at you to support us because we can support ourselves, so we’re free to choose whomever we want.
The question remains: if you can support yourself as well as any man can support himself, what DIFFERENCE does it make what he earns?
Most men don’t want to be sugar daddies, most women don’t want to be gold diggers, and, as a result, the vast majority of us are not.
When most women are referring to high status/sough-after men, they usually if not always mean very good-looking/handsome AND wealthy/rich/famous.
Deep down, he just wants to know that you are in love with him.
But really, no one in their right mind would actually fall for that, would they? Taking to Twitter to prove just how successful the scam has been, Archer’s Paypal history shows a string of payments. To suggest otherwise diminishes what happens in genuine happy marriages, which are based on much more than a mercenary exchange for looks and money. And men value women’s kindness and personality just as much as their looks. In real-life dating studies, which get closer to genuine intentions, physical attractiveness and earning potential strongly predict romantic attraction…On these “consensually-ranked” traits, people seem to aspire to partners who rank more highly than themselves. Status (however you want to measure it: income, formal education, etcetera) is often not far behind.How to get that income, putting out as little as possible? Pretend to be busy when you’re not and then call and pretend you’re bored and deliberately frustrate him sexually. Ask him if he likes phone sex or if he would rather wait until he sees you in person. Make it trivial enough to get you a one– or two-night reprieve, but not so petty that he won’t bother participating in the argument.
