    She extended HER line of credit???? Ummm yea, no....? Maybe like $5 CASH, but I don't see how that would help him.

    When gold digging and hypergamy go wrong.

  • Guadalupe Florian

    Here's the thing: a gold digger would NEVER have given up her credit card to ANYONE because she would PROYECT (believe others think or do what I think or do) the other person will spend her money carelessly. That one hint, if you are educated in basic psychology, will tell you right away she cared for him and loved him to the extent that she was willing to hand her name to a guy she knew had constant threats.

    NO ONE here ever gave proper respect for the interviewer. I bet no guy here doing the same exact interview will be able to control themselves and keep from bursting out laughing and calling her a stupid gold digging betch.

    Sorry... but she's a moron. 😆As a grown woman dating online ... I pay for NOTHING. Business and pleasure do not mix. And a loan is always a gift, pure and simple. I made dumb decisions in my 20's ... sure! But to give some man she's known for a month $200k is just absurd. She needs to take accountability for her stupidity. An expensive lesson.

    When a man starts asking you for US money, you have to ask yourself what did he do before I came into his life. How did he get out of these situations before me.

    She was blinded by his fake love words. Everyone wants to be loved. But true love take time. It's not instant. And most girls are looking for financial security, thinking that is what lends to a good future. It's Important to look at the PERSON, and not his possessions, and not give yourself away to someone you do not truly know.

    Maybe you should have told him to give you the cash first, before you used your card for him, so that you could pay the card back immediately.
