Dating is one of those aspects of your life that is filled with general truths that aren’t true, and pop culture depictions that end being woefully wrong. We all know what movies and TV have taught us about the way people generally perceive money — as something all-important and crucial to mutual attraction.

But is money that important for dating, and for a relationship? We’d argue that this is not the case in reality. Sure, we’d be silly to disregard money as something that’s completely trivial — after all, we all need money to survive. But it’s also not something that’s crucial in any way for the success of a relationship. Just how much are women impressed by extravagance? We’ll dive into the matter below.

How Much Does Money Matter?

When you set out into the uncharted waters of single life, you’ve got one thing on your mind, and one basic question to pose yourself — just how valuable am I? This question doesn’t concern monetary value, at least not entirely. We’re talking about social capital — all of our traits, skills, and quirks that may result in the opposite sex being attracted to us.
For instance, data shows that a lot of women find that speaking French is sexy; it’s often called the language of love. Knowing French doesn’t mean you can (necessarily) earn more money — but it does mean you’ve got an interesting and attractive skill to display.

Let’s get one thing out of the way right now — looks are important and don’t tell anyone to tell you otherwise. Sure, a guy doesn’t have to look like Apollo; but if he wants to land a great-looking girl, he either needs to be on par with her physically – or possess other qualities. Guys with a “silver tongue” and a lot of charm don’t have to look as good, and that’s just a fact.

Your looks and your skills are all a part of the “capital” that sums up your worth as a person, to other people that you’ll be dating. And money does factor into that.

Money As A Factor

If we’re being honest, cash is an undeniable factor in the equation of attractiveness. But the main thing people don’t realize is — it’s far less important than pop culture would have us believe. No, the guy with the most cash doesn’t always get the girl. A lot of money just makes you more noticeable in the beginning; so we could say that it gets you something of a head start.

But once you pull back the curtain of extravagance and opulence, your partners will still want to know what you’ve got underneath the hood. You can’t make a toxic personality better, regardless of how much money you throw at it. Conversely, cheap date with a nice person will be far more impactful.

Everyone likes money, of course — but up to a certain point. Most studies show that women are attracted to financial security. Still, notice our careful wording there — they’re not attracted to money – but to the security that it brings.

When a woman wants a stable, long-term relationship, she’s looking for someone who is capable of providing for themselves. In this sense, money is another character trait, not wealth in and of itself. On the other hand, men aren’t that concerned with a woman’s financial status. They’re more attracted to the charm and good looks.

Having An Expensive Car

Considering all of the above, is it important to have a good car while you’re dating? We’ve all seen the trope of teenage movies, where the guy with the car can get the best-looking girls in his school. But is it like that in real life?

Well, only up to a certain point. Yeah, the person with the best car in high school might be the most impressive dude; but only to a very specific target audience of girls. Those that are materialistic themselves, and only look at someone’s bank account. That’s not someone you’d want to date in the first place.

If you’re a nice guy, you don’t have to drive a Porsche to impress a girl. Far from it — in fact, having an overly flashy car may turn some girls off, because you’ll seem too superficial. There’s no need to spend a small fortune on a car just to be impressive on dates. Some of the best car deals you can find on huge dealer sites like KBB, Edmund’s, Find The Best Car Price, are on solid, but discrete vehicles — and that’s precisely what you should be looking for.

An expensive sports car has a wow effect — but it doesn’t last long. If you take a girl out to dinner in a luxury car, you’ll impress her for the duration of the ride. But once it’s just you and her and you’re talking to each other — the impression you leave there is what truly counts.

Importance of Fame

It’s a famous stereotype that famous people have an easier time dating. But is that really true? In a certain sense, yes. You certainly meet more people, and you don’t have to spend a lot of time presenting your personality to your date. Plus, let’s not kid ourselves — fame is impressive. But in reality, that’s not the main thing that guarantees your success in dating.

For instance, psychologists have found that women are attracted to famous musicians — but is fame what actually counts here? If you ask us, what’s attractive about famous people is the skill that helped them attain fame in the first place.

For instance, musicians who are renowned for their singing have an amazingly impressive skill, especially for dating. That’s the thing you should focus on; disregard fake goals like fame, and try to be your best self. This sort of attitude and approach will not only bring you more self-confidence but ensure that you achieve the greatest possible success in your love life.

We hope this article was useful to you and that you have gained at least some new knowledge. Make sure you’re staying safe in these times we’re going through and have a good one, guys!

Hi, I'm Marc Summers

marc summers of major league dating

I used to suck big time with women, dating, and relationships even though I was nicer than other guys, tried my hardest, and followed all of the dating advice. The women I landed, unsurprisingly, weren’t very picky or hard to get and I regularly got cheated on and dumped. Despite being the nice, generous, thoughtful, and loving guy I thought women wanted, once they got to know me, the attraction disappeared.

The day my girlfriend left me for her ex 30 minutes after hearing he got out jail was the day I decided to get serious, figure out EXACTLY what I was doing wrong, and make some changes.

The next 5 years of my life were spent focusing only on studying psychology, human behavior, effective communication, and leadership, and meeting and dating one woman after another to test out and fine tune what I was learning.

You know what became obvious very quickly?

Your dating and relationship problems have nothing to do with the women and have everything to do with your mindset, behavior, habits, and decisions.

Once you figure out what’s wrong and fix the problems in each one of these areas, your dating life will become easier, less stressful, and more rewarding. 

To share the powerful information I learned and make you better with women, dating, and relationships, I’ve written multiple best-selling books and have helped over 1-million men get better results. No matter how screwed up and hopeless your situation seems right now, I can help you improve it.

Great book. Marc tells you what is right for you about this topic. Being a man, act accordingly the situation.


Thank you so much for the things you teach! You don't understand how much it helped me. You saved my life.. I been struggling with this stuff for years. I wish I seen this earlier thanks again man.


I read your books everyday Marc and it really helps me out a whole lot with women. Your books taught me 2 have patience and self-control with women and taught me that women don’t respond to logical things that men do to get women to like them. You really write great excellent books Marc. Thank you.


Amazing! This really helped a lot and really put my game on another level. I will no longer end up in the friend zone. I wish I had purchased it months ago as I crashed and burned over texts with a girl I really liked on a dance trip - dumb! My confidence level is building back up and my beautiful ex-girlfriend of 7 years is now responding. Love It!


Thank you so much! It is a great read. I finally believe it is something I can use to finally stop doing what I know I should not be doing and help me reach the goals that I have always wanted to achieve. There is nothing like this out there and I am glad that I found you. God bless!


Simply great for nofap. This book has all the valuable information that you need to be successful in nofap and quitting your porn and masturbation habit. I really recommend this for everyone who’s serious about personal development and growing to stronger version of yourself.


Thanks for the tips…really helpful..been a regular reader since I subscribed..looking forward to reading more.


Hell yea man great read a lot of your insight makes more sense I’m currently relearning what I’ve mistakenly picked up over years. Righteous help man total appreciate it. I look forward to purchasing your next book!


I liked how the fundamentals were solid and sound and I think that a book like this is useful even for people familiar with the predecessors who inspired the content. It’s still great information and men need to remember it and learn it. One thing reaches me, another may reach you. This may be the book that you need.


I have been enjoying your videos and your blog posts. I have to say that you are truly different from any other PUA shit I have ever come across. I feel like that PUA stuff ruins your true Authentic self. Thanks.


I learned so much about the nice guy and bad boy traits and how I have always thought being the night in shining armor would get me the results. I am 30 now and I have been trying to do the same boring lame approaches, date settings, and other non-sense expecting the same results. No wonder I sucked with women, no one ever taught me and I just thought it was something that I would just pick up naturally. WRONG!!!!

After reading Nice Guys vs. Bad Boys, I seen a girl sitting on a bench outside of where I work. I approached her and asked her name, told her mine and said, “I am going to be forward with you to not waste time, let have lunch tomorrow.” She gave me a shocked look and I just pulled out my phone and said, what is your number. She literally gave it to me, we went to lunch the next day, and I was just calm, collected, and asking her questions and getting her talking. Since then she has been blowing up my phone with text messages and I rarely reply to her it is crazy.

I know what I was doing in the past has not been working so I am working on myself, my goals, dreams and ambitions, and then woman. That is like the last priority in my life. I am also watching the desperation of nice guys around me and just scratching my head as to why and how I use to be like that. I will definitely share you site with them if they are willing to be helped, but sometimes it is hard to unplug someone from the matrix.

Words can not express how thankful I am that I have found this material, I see so many dating advice sites and books, but a lot of them were just not for me. Yours really spoke out to me.

Small steps to one big goal. Thanks Marc.


Hey Marc! Thanks for really throwing some straight-forward truth on me! I’m happy I reached out to you and not anyone else and that you have proven– that you too, are a person of integrity and are really there to guide us in the best ways possible. Thank you, Marc.


I was skeptical at first, but to my surprise, this turned out to be GREAT. Marc explains in a great and precise way what is needed to become better with women you like and want to date. The thing is that becoming better at dating and women isn’t something you do for them, but for yourself. It’s a way of looking at the world and behaving in a way that will make YOU the happiest (and I can speak from experience). Women are very attracted to that and it’s an added bonus. Everything Marc teaches is clear, precise, and to the point. Highly recommended to any man, especially young men, for acquiring the right mindset. For the price, it’s a steal.


Thank you so much. You’ve been like a big brother to me and helped though my issues with girls with your videos, articles, books, and what you do. Thanks again.


Hey Marc. Your book is the only one I’ve ever found that specifically talks about the whole Real Man/Bad Boy phenomenon in detail (Actually being it as opposed to knowing how to “Perform” it). There is so much crap online about what it is to be a man and what not that finding your book was really refreshing. You’ve done a great job with it. Thanks for writing this book, I couldn’t put it down! I’ll keep an eye out for any more of your works.


Honestly other than the Bible, best book I have read in my life in regards to making changes in my life.


Awesome book Im glad I came across this. This will help me to overcome this nasty habit. I’m on my way to a great lifestyle thanks to this book thank you.

Good information and coming from a nice guy with some inherent bad boy traits, it helped me to clarify the differences and to point out a lot of of mistakes I was making but wasn’t fully aware of. The information is applicable to life, personal, business, friendships, relationships, etc. take out of it what works for you.

It really help me to recover, to be true patient is the key issue.


Just wanted to say your advice helped big time. 2 other coaches I’ve had made me feel so pressured because I felt like I had to do all this extra stuff. But talking to you settled me down and I was able to hang out with this girl for nearly 3 hours. No expectations no kissing, just a lot of laughing. And she texted me right after saying how cool she thought I was. Just wanted to say how much I appreciated your advice because unlike other advice I’ve gotten, this made me feel like I could genuinely enjoy her company, which I did. And now she’s definitely more relaxed about hanging out with me again.
