Please do not confuse the material girl with your run-of-the-mill gold digger. While it’s definitely true that she should still be avoided, the reasoning behind this claim is for an entirely different set of reasons.
As you may recall, Atlanta’s gold diggers will attempt to suck the life force out of any man with a decent credit score. They meticulously hunt for their prey in environments that are unsuspecting. They have familiarized themselves with all of the different gold digging maneuvers and techniques— So they know how to get what they want.
A material girls intension’s however (while still deadly), should be considered to be just a little more innocent.
Material girls are infected with a self inflicting disease called “Shopping Spree” that they’re totally unaware of. Like gold diggers, material girls love wearing designer labels that 85% of the general population can’t afford. They love shopping at Lenox Mall, Phipps Plaza and Atlantic Station for out of season and exclusive, but not discounted items. Unlike the gold digger, material girls don’t care if they obtain their rather expensive wardrobe on their own dime or someone else’s, as long as it’s obtained before it’s marked 40% off and is obtainable by the general public.
Material girls get off on wearing things that others can’t afford, even if they themselves end up having to sacrifice. What they fail to realize however is that everything goes on sale at some point and so bad credit scores and chapter 7 bankruptcies are common place in this relationship.
Unless you’re already married to one, you should approach any Atlanta woman holding more than three designer shopping bags with caution as she’s probably a debt consolidation expert who should be avoided.

We all have first date weirdness possibly stemming from anxiety, expectations, or anticipation. This very thing could be the reason for the catastrophe date with The Perfect Guy Online, but Not So Much Offline. What surprised me the most about this guy is that he contacted me a week after our weird date? I totally thought we mutually dumped each other and even deleted his number on the way home. Needless to say, I haven’t called him back or responded to any of his messages because I’m not sure what to say? Are we suppose to try going out again?
And let’s not mention the other guy who stood me up and blamed it on not storing my number in his phone. I don’t believe you because when we made arrangements to meet up, you called me on your cell phone in the car. Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. So his number got deleted too and now he’s begging and calling me to give him another chance.
I don’t understand men? If you show interest, then you’re being too clingy, but when you don’t care, that’s when they’re all over you? When you start canceling dates or showing no interest, that’s when it seems like men get turned on to you. It’s almost like they really do enjoy the chase. I guess its true what a friend said, “Disinterest is one sexy perfume!”
