It's all a matter of priorities and values.

Because the cost of living is higher than it used to be. And especially if you live in a big city like New York or LA, where rent alone is 1K+/month.

Who says that's a bad thing anyways? I don't have a problem with people having preferences, I have a problem with people denying that people have preferences, attempting to force others to live by thier preferences (especially when those preferences create and perpetuate inequalities in society) and lying about their own preferences, a phenomenon which is rampant on this board and in real life.
Damn it I want to give you 10 reps for this one, but it will only let me give you one!!! Hate the rep system here because you deserve 10+...especially the bold. Just tell the damn truth whats the penalty? I like a woman with a 1 pretty face. 2 small waist, big butt, 3. Full breast...not those empty bag breast, but you know those boobs that are full they don't have to be big. 4. I like a woman who knows how to behave/good personality. I have no problem telling a woman this and I dont even bother with the women that dont fit what I like. A woman has the same rights. If they all want Rich men? Then hey Get Rich & get women. My issue on this is never that women want money...my issue is the men who cry about it. If a woman is for sale...then by all means save your change and buy her man...but dont cry because you spent your money on other things and now dont have enough to buy a woman. It makes no sense to do that fellas.

I don't think so.
You know what you were doing. What you said was a diss. Calling someone single on CD means they are UNWANTED by the opposite sex.

Im just me. I honest to God have never sat around pining for a rich man. I just never really thought of it as practical thinking anyway. If you ask me what I have honestly wanted, it would be for someone who is kind of on the same level as me. Which is, has a stable career that he has been in for a while, have the job be decent and honorable (meaning, no being a leg breaker for the mob for 15 years) and make close to what I make. I dont find it wrong to ask for someone to bring the same thing I can bring to the table.

But, you know what? The BEST thing is someone who knows how to handle their money, and is financially responsible. THAT is the key. Because, a man(or woman) could be making $150,000 a year, but be living week to week because of poor money handling, and the guy making $70,000 is living in a nice house with some toys and a comfortable little nest of money in the bank, all because he is smart with his money.

Im telling you, being financially smart is KEY. All that money means nothing if you dont manage it well. How many of you know people that are making GOOD money, yet dont seem to have anything to show for it, or are constantly broke? Look at some millionares who are now broke. Or people who hit the lottery, and blew it all. Good money skills is key.

Good post

Also i liked the post about a rich, GENEROUS man lol...

Some guys who DO have money hold on to every penny, and you might no even know that til after you marry them!

If you are interested in the character of a guy - the amount of money he has isnt always a way to tell. If he worked hard for it (in ANY type of legal job) that's great. But that also may mean he's a workaholic and a super-driven person - hard to live with?

If a guy is working a job he likes - or even halfway likes - but doesnt make much money, he could be great to live with. One of the greatest guys i know got his GED later in life, worked two jobs - one pumping gas (he loved it - loved the interaction with the people - NJ we dont pump our own), and was a maintenance person in a homeless shelter, where he loved helping them keep the place going for all of those who really needed it.

I'd like to know that someone has SOME ambition to work, but i dont need someone who wants to work 60-70 hours a week either.

Everyday we see in the new some rich sucker who "thinks" he found love and Im like....WHY MAN?? Rich Men have no game!
Agreed. I've always said if I ever became rich, I would NEVER get married. I'd have a girlfriend, but we couldn't live together. I'm not going to let some hussy take half my money.
