Mensagem:  Keep in mind that "gold digger" has a very restricted meaning.  It's a woman who seeks to financially improve her position through whatever means necessary, and this means marrying wealthy men for no reason other than their money.  It can't be used, for example, to describe a woman who flirts with a math professor because she needs his help with algebra, or a man who tries to start a friendship with a business owner in the hopes of landing a job, etc.
