How To Get Money From a Stingy Boyfriend
The foundation of any relationship apart from love is giving. When you love someone, giving to them or sharing what you have with them wouldn’t be an issue.
Naturally, as humans, it is in us to do everything we can for the people we love including giving them money.
Before you classify your boyfriend as stingy, you should first think if he has been like that from the beginning of your relationship or if it’s a recent change. If it’s a recent change, it could probably be an issue with his finance. But either way, here are some sure ways to get money from your stingy boyfriend.
How To Get Money From a Stingy Boyfriend
1. Buy him gifts
That man you think is stingy, might just plainly not know how to give. What better way to teach him how to give than by giving to him? The gifts don’t necessarily need to be expensive, but they be sentimental and of emotional value to him. He will soon learn to give in return.
2. Be Valuable to him
Everyone loves to have an asset and nobody wants a liability. No man will be happy to spend on a woman they consider a liability. Add value to your man’s life, support his dreams, recommend him for jobs you know he can do, pray for him and with him, and finally assist him in whatever way you can. There is no way you would be an asset to him and he won’t give you anything and everything you ask for.
3. Be reasonable in your Asking
As your man, you know his financial capacity, try not to ask him what you know he can’t provide. If you want a wig of say 150k and you know your man can’t provide it, instead of labeling him stingy, you can either ask him for the amount you know he can provide and offset the rest yourself, or better still go for a wig with lower price.
4. Tell him your needs
We all know of the saying “A woman who doesn’t ask for anything deserves everything”, but sometimes because you don’t ask or tell your man your needs, he isn’t bothered about giving you or providing any of it. The truth is, no matter how independent a woman is, she loves it when her man provides for her needs, most men believe that since you can comfortably provide for your needs there is no need for him to do so. It is your job to talk to him about your needs.
5. Call other guys to ask for money in his presence
Nothing moves a guy to give more than jealousy. No guy likes the thought of his girl asking another guy for anything, especially money. If you successfully pull this stunt, he would start giving you money, especially if he loves you as he wouldn’t want to lose to other guys because the guy gives more than he does.
6. Be Independent and have self-respect
It isn’t ideal to always ask your man for money because he also has other responsibilities to take care of. As a lady earn your own money and be independent, try as much as possible to reduce your dependence on him.
7. Ask him for money in front of his friends
I don’t recommend this but to each his own. If you know your man is the type that has pride and likes showing off to people, especially his friends, this will work for you. He would like to prove to his friends that he takes care of his woman’s needs, so this might be the best way to get money from him.
8. Be appreciative of his gifts
It is said that “Appreciation is an application for more” when you always appreciate your man, he will be motivated to do more. Nobody likes being unappreciated, many women complain their man is stingy, meanwhile, they are the ones who don’t appreciate it when he gifts you, by belittling the gifts or looking down on them.
Being unappreciative alone can make a man tight-handed. The appreciation can be in many forms like cooking his favorite food, doing a little extra in the bedroom, e.t.c.
9. Be Faithful and Loyal
Everyone wants a man or woman who is loyal and faithful, I know I want a faithful partner. Be your man’s confidant and be faithful to him. No man will spend on you if he discovers you have been cheating on him. If you want your man to spend on you, be supportive and Faithful.
