Are you worried that you may be a sugar mama? How can you tell if your man is only with you for the money?

Men can very easily figure out if their girlfriends are gold diggers, but can women do it too?

Here are 5 signs your boyfriend could be a gold-digger.

1. He has no ambition

He has no source of income and heavily leans on you to provide for everything including his fare to come to dinner. He has not job. No plans of getting one and is always an M-Pesa request away.

After all,"Babe, si you understand?" he always says.

2. He always has an "emergency"

Every time you need to share expenses or he's expected to pay for something because he had promised, he suddenly can't because, "I had to send money to my aunt for her cousin's surgery."

3. He has an "us" mentality

They always encourage their partners to buy something extra that would benefit the both of you. He was suspiciously willing to go with you on a shopping trip, and while there he insisted on you buying something for both of you to enjoy.

4. He wants to know about you and your family's financial background

Sneaky questions are asked that would have you revealing the wealthiest people in your family. Eventually your income will become known to him through his questioning. He will also ask why you aren't living according to your paycheck. He will encourage you to treat yourself. Even going as far as offering to refund you when "he gets that cash he has been waiting for".
