Why Dating Rich People When You’re Broke Can Be So Awful – VICE

Rich People Probably Don’t Even Want to Date You (But Also: Who Cares?)

Rich people can do whatever they want (they could go to fancy restaurants like Burger and Lobster and order both burger and lobster!), so why would they choose to spend their evening eating at a some cheap restaurant and listening to you enthuse, with increasing desperation, that the curry is actually surprisingly authentic?

People who earn a lot of money—all of whom have the word “ambitious” in their Tinder bio—tend to look at prospective romantic partners as a financial investment. In ten years, they want to own a house in Ibiza. The best you can hope for in a similar timeframe is not being priced even further out of your neighborhood. As far as safe investments go, you’re hovering somewhere between Dogecoin and a “music technology” startup run by a Goldsmiths graduate.

But would you even want to date a rich person anyway? For Lily, a 25-year-old who lives in London, the answer is a firm no: “This is a huge generalization, as all the best statements are, but every rich person I’ve met has either been extremely dull, had politics that clashed with mine past the point of a ‘friendly debate,’ and straight into the realm of ‘to the gulag!’ or both.”
