I was wondering if any of you guys would stay with someone only for his great financial situation. These days i see lots of people trying to find someone to pay for everything they want. What do you guys think about that ?

I wouldn't want to do that because it sounds wrong... I'd feel bad taking advantage of someone. Although I might take have second thoughts if the guy was the one who suggested. Maybe. (Mostly 'no' cause I've never been in a relationship and don't want this type to be my 1st).

On the other hand, there are people who would do it out of desperate need.

Romantically? No.

Friendship? I guess if their financial situation allowed us to have fun experiences together e.g. trips abroad, VIP days out etc it would be a factor in the friendship but it still wouldn't work out if they were a horrible person, irregardless of how much money they had.

That's a good point of view, i'm not here to judge anyone anyway. I guess some people love to being treated like Kings or Queens but i think some peoples love having the role of what we could call a "sugar daddy/mommy" too. But i guess if there is a good connection between the two people in question and that it's a healthy relationship, i don't see why it would be a problem.

To be friend with someone only for the money is the same thing as for being in a couple with someone for the money in my opinion...

If there were a mutual understanding about the type of relationship sure why not. I wouldn't expect that kind of thing to last long, though.

I think there's a difference between romantic relationships and casual friendships.

In a relationship this is the one person that you want to be completely open with and potentially spend the rest of your lives together, my opinion is that money shouldn't play any sort of role in this and it should purely be down to the connection between the people involved, not the material things that they own / money that they have.

Friendships on the other hand can be different. You can have many friends at any given time and they can dip in and out of your life depending on various factors such as if you live close together, how busy you both are, how important or casual the friendship is. I'm not saying that I would even consider being friends with someone who was a terrible person, no amount of money would ever influence that. What I AM saying is if the imaginary situation happened where a stranger wanted to be friends and due to their financial situation this involved wanting to enjoy expensive things together such as visiting interesting places abroad, going on all expense paid-for adventures etc - my honest opinion is that it would have some sort of influence on the friendship. Friendships involve having fun together and money can always buy fun to some extent, so heck why not give it a go?


TL:DR I guess what I'm trying to say is that money can't buy love, so it's a hard no for relationships. However, it CAN buy things that are fun to do with friends and having a friend with unlimited money who wants to hang out would be a-okay with me.

I personally wouldn't Having someone pay for all the bills and stuff is nice, but I'd feel helpless, even if I did a lot of the chores for him, I can tell taht sort of relationship will easily go downhill if a wrong move is made too. You're hubby may end up being like "I pay all the bills, you do all the house work" which is fair and all but that's not the relationship I want, I'd like it to be more of a 50% 50% chore/moneymaking for both if possible, as long as you are both happy to help each other outin some decent way. I'm guessing anyway, I don't want to be on a one sided relationship.

Unless I was in a position where I would be incapable of providing for myself on my own then no. I'd prefer to be financially independent, and using someone for money is just wrong in my opinion.

Its probably nice, but I would never want to find someone only for that reason. If you start to live care free at a young age, you will lose the meaning of hard work, and fair pay

I personally couldn't. I would rather be financially independent and I would only want to be with someone who I can be me and have a good time with.
