Who is a gold digger? A gold digger is a needy individual that will take up a lot of your money, time and energy.
The difference between a gold digger and someone who values your role as a provider is that the gold digger would deride and perhaps leave you if you lost your ability to provide for them financially.
A good person can appreciate your financial resources, but a gold digger appreciates your ability to meet her demands.
Gold diggers feel that they deserve to be treated well, and that includes knowing that someone is willing to spend money on them.
Maybe it’s because they had a bad childhood or relationship, and they feel they deserve to be happy.
Well, here are some of the symptoms of a gold digger:
- Exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements.
- Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).
- Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.
- Preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
- Often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.
- Requires excessive admiration.
