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...

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


You're a real dreamer aren't ya?

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

- that's assuming all rich people are smart
- that's assuming it's not a smart thing to go for rich men (think of the woman who bags a rich guy and the way intelligence is measured)
- that's assuming there is no or will not be any impairment on his assets and his confidence of how the future will turn out makes me think he's not the CEO of JP Morgan Chase (think of nature not only in terms of humans but the unpredictability of nature as a whole)

the point if there was a point here is that both have big ego's (him and the woman) for different reasons and well, it wouldn't work very well for them lol.

Dumb money is actually pretty rare. You're either rich and smart, or rich and hire someone smart. There might be a small opportunity if you look at rich young adults who get their $$ before they know better, but eventually they'll smarten up or pay someone to be smart for them. Plus, someone with mere good looks probably won't swindle dumb money before a banker, agent, or accountant does it first.

This is sort of true. I think that some people just choose others because they're pretty or rich. But not all people do this, I wouldn't get together with a pretty girl, just because she's pretty. The real things to choose people by are through personal thought, personality, and similar interests.

But I will say that it doesn't mean the girl or guy can't be rich or pretty. That stuff is just the icing on the cake for what is real.

Yes, physical attractiveness helps, and so does being rich. Unless I'm in an incredibly unrealistic and dire situation, I wouldn't marry for money. I wouldn't marry someone with only a pretty face and nice body, too. Looks fade, after all, making it a rather poor compensation for living with them. To be fair, though, some folks marry and then hardly ever see each other, but that's not my style.

Being rich doesn't come from nothing like being pretty does.

For the most part (unless they have wealthy relatives) someone who is rich worked hard for that money. That brings a lot of possible traits like intellect, talent, dedication, motivation, independence and so on. Can possible bring bad traits too. However, if you value ambition more than you hate self-centeredness then a rich person is for you.

Doesn't mean that I would date someone because of their money, but I'd be quicker to date someone for their wealth than for their appearance alone.

More than any other factor the thing that stands out the most to me is drive, the drive to never stop improving, the drive to always push forward despite greater forces pushing back. A bit of a competitive streak is good too, I don't think there is anything more beautiful to see than a pair of people who always push each other to get better in all aspects of life. It really takes someone who is thick-skinned and oblivious to negativity.

[edit: I will also add that people with that type of personality tend to look great and even if they don't they are usually always moving in the right direction]

Well she does have to be in my sexual preferences. But when it comes to money, it doesn't matter. My girl is as broke as can be so yeah lol. And she does tell me that money isn't top priority. lol :p But I don't think she's stupid enough to stay with me if I can't support her lol

Marilyn Monroe is the patron saint of whores, that being said I enjoy whores. They're easy to understand and tend to be very interesting. They are not someone you want to marry, and if you do, well then you deserve every ounce of pain they bring you. I was a poor little boy until a siren slapped the innocence right out of my mouth and soon after I smoked drank and howled at the moon. I was never whole after, never felt I could care to treat a women with respect, never wanted to. Pretty women, in my experience are usually very nice and personable. A whore is a whore. Women think they are a hot commodity and yet when I turn my head in either direction there is another. Don't believe the hype, find a partner, and have an idea of equality about your relationship. Never put up with peoples shit, you deserve more, eat your veggies.

Money does come into play but as much as you would think. I'd want a woman who would be able to support herself if i'm there or not. I wouldnt' want to take all the work nor do nothing as well. I wouldn't marry poor but i would marry rich.

Why would anyone marry a pretty/handsome person just for their looks? Just get the "milk" and leave. You don't have to buy the whole damn cow to get the milk. That is also how you get rich stop looking to buy the whole damn cow when you can just get the milk. Now to the rich part you don't gotta marry them either just make them your sugar daddy/momma until they are sick of you and upgrade to a newer better younger prettier version of your old wrinkled ass.

I'm neither rich or attractive. I've also never had a woman express interest in me.

Coincidence or causality? Not sure.
