Don't you know that a man being rich is like a girl being pretty? You wouldn't marry a girl just because she's pretty...

Great reply from JP Morgan Chase CEO when a golddigger had asked him this question. He decided to actually respond and it's entertaining....

Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.
Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money” : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.
However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.
Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.
By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position”.
If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased”.
Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advise that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Hope this reply helps.

signed,
J.P. Morgan CEO

I'm actually pretty good about not holding things against women that they don't have any control over as a factor for a relationship. I've proven it in my personal history.

However it does make me a harsher judge about things they DO have control over - if they tie into other things that SHOULD be important. Like their behavior. Whether or not I can grow with them, or if they have the discipline to be healthy, or the intelligence to pursue what they want instead of just doing what they think they should.

One thing that's always bothered me is if you are downright needing-plastic-surgery kind of beastly (which is actually legitimately rare), wouldn't you spend your time doing something else? Develop a great personality. Become an expert at something, or many things. Find some damn hobbies. In most cases though you just see them being obsessed, angry, and bitchy about their appearance. Like if they were hot, it wouldn't be gone when they got old anyway.

I think a more interesting topic is how men care about being richer so they can find someone more attractive, and women care about being more attractive so they can find someone richer. What was it I heard Chris Rock say? "Men cannot go backward sexually, women cannot go backward in lifestyle." The whole process is demented to me, like a kind of mental illness, so I stay out of it.

I guess it would help, yeah. I've never properly been in love before, but from the standpoint of a guy being with an attractive girl, I think there needs to be some sort of physical attraction there. I don't see me being with someone who, everytime I look at them, has me thinking 'yeah you're pretty ugly'.

False.

I wouldn't marry a girl just because she's pretty, but I will marry a guy just because he's rich... Well, of course, sexual preferences aside and all that...

Also, would a girl being rich be the equivalent of a guy being handsome? Because I'd marry a handsome guy but not a rich girl...


My mind is being boggled.

Tell that to all the women who are in their 20's and are married or going out with those 60, 70 year old million/billionaires. Same goes for those young guys married to Million/Billionaire women.

I'd rather keep my money and spend it on a mistress to use her at my leisure than spend it on some entitled wife.

"I rather date/have sex with this girl or guy because he or she looks good/have money then brag to everyone about it".


The way some people think is astounding.

Does "pretty" only include physical appearances, because I would marry a woman if she was beautiful on the outside as well as the inside.

Doesnt matter how ugly except if she has fucking down syndrome or three legs or a beard or something like that.


What about all 3? Like a retarded, tri-legged troll with a beard.
