I don't think that the people we're attracted to has anything in common with the way we feel about money, Magnolia. I don't know if it's a learned response or if we're pre-disposed to it, but I've always been attracted to similar types of women. I don't see how that relates to my desire for cash, or the way I handle it.

Money can buy you
LOVE..yes..face it..physical love/companionship call it what you will..it can buy you an escort for dinner, for a night, a week, your own memphis mafia
MEMORY'S ..a lot of memories and a lot of ways to forget memories
FRIENDS..how many women and men do you know would marry just for money given the right amount?..not to mention all the hanger on'ers
PLEASURE..in any way, form or idea possible...that's why they call them toys..trophies..luxuries and such...after all do you really need 20 grand a month for Expenses?...live on an island with pbj's for year and let me know what you think then.


A shallow, vacuous existence with empty people who will only be around until the cash runs out.

People seem to have this silly notion that having money means you absolutely have to flaunt it, have to use it to gain what you want, etc.

Sorry, but the way money buys you happiness/friends/love, is by simply removing the hindrances that keep you from finding them. No job = more time to pursue. No bills = more money available to go out. No stress = happier/less baggage. etc.

I heard this from a pyschologist on TV a few years ago, he said, "I'd rather counsel rich people than poor people. Because you can never convince a poor person that money won't solve their problems."

Can money buy love? NO.. But if you are the loving type then money can make things more fun..
I'm thinking about selling my place to move into a hippie community..
I can live with loving people that have no money and don't care about it.
All these people care about is making the world a better place and living in peace.
It isn't in the US so there will be a chance for freedom.
There is no freedom in america anymore..
Money and power and the pursuit thereof is the root of all evil.

money is the single leading cause of fights among engaged people and couples in their first marriage, according to University of Denver professors Scott M. Stanley and Howard J. Markman. They also found that money fights were more intensely negative than other arguments.

Your right money matters for alot of things ,makes life a whole lot simpler ...but the fact is you can adjust to any life style and still be happy
As long as I have my job and can pay my bills I'm happy..life could be so much worse

As far as love I dont know, maybe contentment

". I believe when we are younger we need more money that when we are older we seem not to need as much, because we don't have the same needs."

Not the same needs - but the different needs can be even more expensive, at least in the US, and I see you are not in US so your medical system might make a difference. If it cost so much less to be older all the boomers wouldn't still be working. However, if retirement is going to have time consuming activities, then they do cost more than you can spend if at work.

Ever notice how you spend less when working? Not enough time to spend when busy working. Well, retirement provides plenty of time to spend. Either on medical care, hobbies, travel. House paid for? Probably not. Might have been, but had to put the kids through school. Then they needed ... and needed... hehehehe.

I don't care what money can or can't do. Simple rule. I cover my expenses, you cover yours. Money becomes a non-issue. :) My son decided to marry a woman who has a different willingness to make money. She pays half the cost of her lifestyle. He pays the other half plus however much more he wants to spend on added lifestyle. She doesn't get to ask for more than half the lifestyle she can afford. It works.

I disagree Cutpid.

Money cannot buy you eternal life.
Can't buy you more time on this earth, not another minute.
Can't buy you love. Sure it helps, but really, wouldn't you always feel slighted and wonder if he or she loved you or your money?
Money can't solve all your problems either. Howard Hughes is a great example.
Talented atheletes for example, can'y buy them brains.
Hollywood's spoiled, can't buy them common sence.

"Can't buy you more time on this earth, not another minute."

I know a few people who died of curable diseases who didn't have enough money to pay for the medical care. People whose medical required so much time in the diagnostics that the cancer had progressed before diagnosis.

I know people who have messed up tot he point of not having jobs or homes and who have died because there was no money to house and feed them.

Money that pays for the necessities of life can extend life.

I am very non-materialistic. A $10 purse works fine for me and I'd rather have the other $290 of that Coach purse to spend on making a difference in another person's life. Or, once in a while, to go scuba diving.

Money can improve a person's quality of life. Anyway when it comes to choosing someone special, the shared values and interests make the relationship, not how much money each of them has.

in your hypothetical, could I pay someone to fall out of love with you? What if they refused, and they were the one you thougt you paid for? I bed you'd feel pretty silly then.

Maybe the money really represents your own security and feelings of adequacy but not what is reallay meaningful in a relationship?

Money can bring joy to life if one buys items that bring people together, such as a friend who owned his own aircraft and enjoyed taking people flying. Similarly, a beautiful home theatre that is filled with family and friends enjoying themselves is another way that money can bring pleasure. Being greedy with money doesn't bring joy and happiness. But having nice things that are compatible with sharing them with others can and do bring happiness in a person's life if the point of buying those items is to include loved ones in the enjoyment. Boats are another item that allows people to come together. No pun intended, but with the right attitude, money can enrich someone's life!

According to a survey by Prince & Associates, a Connecticut-based wealth-research firm, the average "price" that men and women demand to marry for money these days is $1.5 million. Fully two-thirds of women and half of the men said they were "very" or "extremely" willing to marry for money. The answers varied by age: Women in their 30s were the most likely to say they would marry for money (74%) while men in their 20s were the least likely (41%).
