    Pop-culture is saturated with jokes, movies, references and real-life examples of women who date/marry guys who are wealthy or very wealthy.

    So why aren't there more male gold-diggers out there in the real world as well? It's not like guys don't like money, and it would be easy for them to find out if his potential gf/wife is wealthy, yet it's rare that you hear about guys doing it.

    It has been discussed on here that women typically don't marry down (social standing). There are also more wealthy men than there are women.

    I don't buy that at all. There are tons of women who are from wealthy families and are single. They and there families would love for them to meet a good guy, even if he was from a middle-class family as opposed to an uber-wealthy one.

    Most people are normal. Normal right now is still the man being self reliant. It's still acceptable for a woman to not be self reliant. So being a gold digger is normal. For a man it is not. You'd have to be able to go against cultural norms to be a male gold digger.

    In time I think the amount of gold diggers could become more even as beliefs in equality become more normal.

    Biology

    Prime goal of all life form is to survive and reproduce. So men are interested in healthy child bearers so we are attracted to beautiful women. Very few (if any) popular attractive features are unhealthy. On the other hand, women are looking for men that can provide the necessary resources that can help raise the offspring. So men that can provide material comforts and security are attractive to them. Gold diggers are just like shallow men, a more exaggerated version of regular folks. We've evolved for millions of years this way, even though this no longer applies in modern society, it's still a very short time to shake off old habit. It explains the impulse for men to shower gifts to women they are attracted to, and for women to be obsessed with their own appearance.

    my explanation:

    a rich man will enjoy having someone to come home to. so they'll get married to a little hotty, while probably still philandering on the side.

    a rich woman on the other hand, doesn't give a f'ck. she'll just bang a bunch of dudes, and actually prefers to have her house to herself.

    Because most women don't find unsuccessful men attractive no matter how good looking they are. They don't look for the same qualities in a mate that men do.

    Obviously because we Mayberrians won't sell our 13" p33ns so cheaply.
