Men, we need to value our time more then we value women. This isn't to say women are not valuable. But who are we to believe in something so illogical, as men we should realize that without our time(life), we would not even be able to pursue women, but only our mother who gave us life. Why do we think we should prioritize them over our time(life) unless she is the one who gives me/my children life. Man is Sovereignty.
I'm confused you lost the $200 or kept it?
Here we go again. Won't be the first a girl turned down a $200 date.
Any surprise women don't like money?
I got turned down for a $200 drunken weekend on a girl at work a couple years ago (theme park, hotel, drinks, etc) to turn around and drive by her house to which she had another man in the car!!
Throwing money at the situation I guess doesn't change things :\
Women are not after looks, money, or those things (those are last)
Mainly status, confidence, stability, etc (those are first)
When you let go of your feelings you can really then embrace your surroundings
Love is a game that's why I don't worry about it anymore. When you let go of your feelings you find your meaning.
Similar situation for me. I'm trying to run game on a younger girl and I can close. Sucks
No offence intended but you need to up your game and really try and develop some conversational skills, because there are not many girls who like to go out and just sit there in Silence because you're not talking to her, because sooner or later some other guy will and may even steal her away from right under your nose.
Under normal circumstances, I'm quite a quiet guy myself but whenever I go on a date with a girl then the Conversation just flows and we have a great time, because if you bore the pants off her, then her attraction for you, will rapidly diminish.
To the point where She might just start using you, for expensive dinners and shows.
Of course She'll let you touch her to a certain extent, after spending all that money on her.
But Spoiling her rotten, isn't the name of the game, as if She really loves or likes you, then She will be just as happy if you just bought her a Pizza and then had a walk in the rain.
So if I were you I would wipe the slate clean, ditch the expensive dinners and shows, at least for a while and tell her that you're taking her on a Picnic!
Which She can help to organise, as this is something you can plan between you. (doing something together, instead of her just turning up)
They can be a lot of fun, as something always goes wrong, with insects getting in the way and all that sort of stuff, so plenty of opportunities for conversation starters, then go for a romantic walk on the beach and then go for a drink or something like that.
Or on another occaision, cook a meal together, or take her for a Chinese.
You don't have to change everything, just be a better version of yourself.
The Power in a Relationship always goes to the one who cares the least
With the greatest respect, it sounds like you've friendzoned yourself. Tighten up, with her as well as in general, and understand that if you present as a meal ticket then, generally speaking, that's how women will tend to treat you. Never equivocate, and never settle for less than you're due. Good luck, Jim!
