The sugar mama survival handbook: how to know he's after your money, and what to do if he is.

6. He's a deadbeat. Use your common sense. Being unemployed or working part-time doesn't mean a guy is a gold digger. But if he doesn't have career ambitions and is content to spend your money, that's a red flag.

Kirschner warns that guys who want your money might "dream big in terms of your future together, but earn little and have no plans to amp up their career." Johnson advises women to watch out for the guy who "encourages you to enjoy your opulence [and doesn't] support fiscal responsibility."

 

7. You just have this feeling… Listen to your instincts. "If you have a visceral feeling a man is dating you for your money, you are correct, he is," says Johnson.

If you're seeing a majority of these signs in your relationship, you might be dating a financial opportunist. But not all monetarily-impaired men are out for your cash; a man who relies on your money can make a wonderful husband and boyfriend. "If you are comfortable (and cognizant) a man is dating you for your financial stature, and this is compatible with your standards, enjoy yourself!" says Johnson.
