The gold diggers are. of course they are concerned just as men don't want a female that can make a home or cook unless they are rich.

Please, people are attracted to money as a whole! Hello, capitalism!

Females are concerned about a guy's financial assets but we are concerned about many other things as well - such as personality, chemistry, how he treats us, etc.

It seems like there will always be those guys who complain that girls are money-hungry gold diggers and those girls who whine that men are shallow, depraved bastards. While there are people out there who solely focus on money and looks, most people take into a consideration a slew of other aspects as well. However, money and looks are always going to be a great bonus! It is what it is.

I didn't even know my SO's financial situation until we began living together and sharing expenses. I knew that he was employed and where, but I had no idea what he made.

I never judged a man by his earning potential or financial assets when I was single. I was raised to be self sufficient, so I never needed a guy's money.
Really I was most concerned with a man's character and how he treated me.
I married for love, companionship, and shared values and it's worked out well.
I know it's tough to find a nice person out there, but each time you have a rotten experience it brings you one step closer. . . at least that was the theory I operated under and it helped me maintain my sanity in the crazy world of dating. I wish you well.

I like nice things yes...however I perfere by my own means. That way they can't turn around and say"Well I bought you this and that." "You have to do this and that with it" If its mine its my way.

Yes, most women only date guys if they have huge bank accounts.

I'm sooooo not rich, not even by a long shot. I have long hair, dress like a beach bum. Drive a 17 yr old economy car.

I do have a good job and make some pretty decent money. At least by my standards. Anyway a woman I would potentially meet would think I worked in a warehouse, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Kind of good, maybe she'd get to know me first. I'm past the trying to impress stage of my life.

I too was raised to never be dependant on someone else and bought my own house and made my own money. I made more money than all the men I dated,except for one and he made millions and it's all he talked about were his cars and his things and zzzzzzzzzzz, and he was a total a##.

The last time I saw him was when I left him in an airport in the middle of a blizzard after we got back from a trip to the islands (the longest 7 days I ever spent in my life). I even changed seats on the plane so I didn't have to sit next to him. As we were waiting for the luggage I realized I was the one who drove to the airport and just said later...

Money don't make the man.

Tried to rep you.

If I ever had a daughter I'd made sure I tell how important it is to support herself. I'd also stress how important it is to be able to open up and share herself with the man she was with.
