I do not know. By saying I'm poor I feel it keeps gold diggers away from me. I feel that facade is threatened by the fact I wear gold rings and a gold watch. I just get such a kick about telling people I'm poor.

I'm not interpreting it literally.
I'm saying it breaks my facade (that I claim to be poor).

You saw a guy who seemed like a rebel, perhaps he wasn't wealthy. Perhaps he came from the wrong side of the tracks. You were drawn in by his mystery and the fact he was different from your social group.
It felt so wrong but so right.
Trust me. That's how many guys feel about women.

Now there's a good old-timey expression! It inspired me to come up with a new one:

Why buy a loser basement dweller when you can buy an adult.

Anyone else inspired? Jump right in.
