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.

I’m 47 and after meeting another ‘girl of my dreams’,I turn into this pathetic ‘girly man’ you talk about. Of course, within a week she left me. I knew I was the problem.

It puts things in context of real life. If you can help me you can help anyone.

I just completed the Audiobook 99 Bad Boy Traits and I must say the following: I have heard inspirational talks by Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar, etc and they were good but your book 99 Bad Boy Traits has the been the most important to me and my life. It is like the father/son talk I never got when I was young. It empowers me to be just who I am. The hard work will pay off. You rock my brother.


Finished it in one session. This book is mandatory read for us men to live up to our greatest potential.


Marc is not only brilliant but very knowledgeable. He utilizes his real life experiences to advise other what to do and what not to do. At the end of the day, whenever I find my relationship going South, I revert back to 72 ways. Everytime. Why? Because it's the most effective and makes the most sense. And I've sought advice from the entire Internet! I've even talked to Marc on the phone and he's the same guy as he is on this audiobook. 100 % Real! Trust me when I say this will be money well spent! Thanks Marc!


Hi Marc, thank you, thank you and thank you. Now i know why I was so terrible with women; I am what you describe as a nice guy. I am always trying to please everybody and feel valuable to all. I'm always smiling and trying too hard to always being a nice guy. I bought your Audiobook and loved it. Now I have to incorporate all that I have learned from your book in my state of mind, little by little. I'm not interested in being with women because I'm married. However, in my job I am implementing the bad boy state of mind to succeed in business. Thank you once again for opening my eyes and teaching me what I was doing wrong.


Declare War on Yourself is my new bible. Each page is impactful and a catalyst for changing behavior. It does not contain any rah rah motivation talk, nor tear-jerking inspiration stories. Just plain battlefield success principles.


I just wanted to tell you thanks for your products. You’ve really helped me start to understand the issues my lack of emotional control has created with women, and in my life as a whole. I just finished 72 Ways and previously read 99 Bad Boy Traits. I’m coming off of a messy divorce a couple months ago, and also a break up with a different woman who I truly want to be with. Because of my lack of emotional control surrounding my divorce, I pushed her away. Thanks to the help of your books, I see the mistakes I made in my marriage and with the woman I want to be with. Right now I’m focused on myself, and your books really help me to stay on that path, rather than repeating the needy, overly emotional, negative patterns I was in. I’m giving her space with the acceptance that she might not come back around. If you have any further advice for me I’d appreciate it, and thanks so much again!

Hey bro, I just want to thank you personally for your book. I listen to it everyday and keeps my mind in the right place. Your blunt and to the point. It's helping me grow my business and stay focused on what really matters. I love everything you have in it. I'm finding out myself that buying stuff is an endless road and you really helped me ponder on the meaning behind all that. So many awesome things in your book. I have read hundreds of books over the last few years and yours is the gem. I'm on my fifth time through it and still just as impactful as the first. From all the books, you're the only one I've felt inspired enough to send a personal message too. Most books get you pumped up temporary but then they have no practical application for life. Yours does. It's the real deal. I'm selling my car and I get the things you hit on. Hope we can meet in person one day. Thanks again and just want you to know you're changing my life. Buying stuff is useless. Like a rock. I love it man. And I just experienced my own thing that validates everything I've been listening to in your book. Anyway, I could go on and on but I'll stop here. Much success to you.


Your eBooks and audiobooks are a wonderful resource in helping not only my dating aspect of life but my ENTIRE life in general. Thank you so much for your insight and expertise in all the information you make available.

You have given me and extremely better understanding of women and my behavior. Lots of useful information. I highly recommend this even if you know everything.


I got dumped by a girl a few months ago and it was very hard on me. When I bought your ebook 72 ways to get your ex back I started to take action. I realized I was doing some things wrong and that my mental strength was very weak and poor and was affecting my behavior and ultimately leading to her breaking up with me and the reasons why most women were leaving me. I am so thankful for your help. When I go out on the town now, I’m using different mindsets and different behaviors and I’m seeing incredible results. I feel today I could be in a real loving relationship and I also feel that if my ex-girlfriend ever sees me again she is gonna notice real changes in me. People at my work have noticed changes and my family has noticed changes. I listen to your books over and over again. I do have some good qualities but I definitely needed to make changes but I never knew how and I never knew I needed to change or that I needed help. I hope you continue to create new improvements to share with us and help people like me have real hope again.


So after investing in 2 of your products I have changed a fair bit. I know longer spend my weekends getting drunk at bars chasing women. Which always ended badly hahaha. I’m a lot more active now in life. My family and friends can’t get over how much I have changed. And the same with my exes who keep texting me lol I don’t focus on getting Laid all the time which is new for me. 1 thing I’m working at the moment and stuck on is I don’t have a problem with asking attractive girls on the street random questions it’s more the actually point of wanting to get there phone number that’s when I get cold feet and get a little intimated and wanna leave the conversation even if it’s going well and she’s responding great. I’m still reading your book and I’m really enjoying it.


I gotta tell u that this book has been the best $30 ever spent, it really helps me out with my inner-game.
