LMAO...just caught this...supposedly an actual post from Craigslist.com.

Quote:
What am I doing wrong?


Okay , I'm tired of beating around the bush. I'm a beautiful (spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I'm articulate and classy.
I'm not from New York . I'm looking to get married to a guy who makes at least half a million a year. I know how that sounds , but keep in mind that a million a year is middle class in New York City , so I don't think I'm overreaching at all.

Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives? Could you send me some tips? I dated a business man who makes average around 200 - 250. But that's where I seem to hit a roadblock. $250 ,000 won't get me to Central Park West! . I know a woman in my yoga class who was married to an investment banker and lives in Tribeca , and she's not as pretty as I am , nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right? How do I get to her level?

Here are my questions specifically:

-Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me specifics- bars , restaurants , gyms

-What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys , you won't hurt my feelings

-Is there an age range I should be targeting (I'm 25)?

- Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the upper eastside so plain? I've seen really 'plain Jane boring types who have nothing to offer married to incredibly wealthy guys. I've seen drop dead gorgeous girls in singles bars in the East Village. What's the story there?

- Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows - lawyer , investment banker , doctor. How much do those guys really make? And where do they hang out? Where do the hedge fund guys hang out?
- How you decide marriage vs. Just a girlfriend? I am looking for MARRIAGE ONLY

Please hold your insults - I'm putting myself out there in an honest way. Most beautiful women are superficial; at least I'm being up front about it. I wouldn't be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn't able to match them - in looks , culture , sophistication , and keeping a nice home and hearth.

THE ANSWER

Dear Pers: 555555555
I read your posting with great interest and have thought meaningfully about your dilemma. I offer the following analysis of your predicament. Firstly , I'm not wasting your time , I qualify as a guy who fits your bill; that is I make more than $500K per year. That said here's how I see it.

Your offer , from the prospective of a guy like me , is plain and simple a creepy business deal! . Here's why. Cutting through all the B.S. , what you suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring my money. Fine , simple. But here's the rub , your looks will fade and my money will likely continue into perpetuity...in fact , it is very likely that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won't be getting any more beautiful!

So , in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset , your depreciation accelerates! Let me explain , you're 25 now and will likely stay pretty hot for the next 5 years , but less so each year. Then the fade begins in earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you!

So in Wall Street terms , we would call you a trading position , not a buy and hold...hence the rub...marriage. It doesn't make good business sense to "buy you" (which is what you're asking) so I'd rather lease. In case you think I'm being cruel , I would say the following. If my money were to go away , so would you , so when your beauty fades I need an out. It's as simple as that. So a deal that makes sense is dating , not marriage.

Separately , I was taught early in my career about efficient markets. So , I wonder why a girl as "articulate , classy and spectacularly beautiful" as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to believe that if you are as gorgeous as you say you are that the $500K hasn't found you , if not only for a tryout.

By the way , you could always find a way to make your own money and then we wouldn't need to have this difficult conversation.

With all that said , I must say you're going about it the right way. Classic "pump and dump." I hope this is helpful , and if you want to enter into some sort of lease , let me know
LMAO...so glad I'm not single.

Thought I'd share.

Late.

Would you continue to date someone who can't afford to take you on dates? Would chillin out at the guy's crib every time you got together really cut it?

If you couldn't see yourself with a nigga when his dough is low
Baby girl, if this is so, yo..

Most women, atleast the majority go for a man with money, there is no denying it, similar to when a lot of men go for a woman with a good looks.

If a woman is approached by a man that is broke and is rockin' some messed up sneakers and cheap jeans, shes not gonna give him the time of day no matter how good of a man he may be, its as simple as that. No money = no love. Its even worse when a woman meets a man with money and then suddenly he ends up with no money for whatever reason, that comes as a shock to the woman and then she moves on, she won't exactly stick around paying for them when they go out for a meal and whatnot, maybe once, or twice, after that "bye, bye".

But then, not all women are like that, its just the majority, you may be amongst the minority.

Well growing up and raised to respect money and not having much, and money and greed having ripped our family apart I have a different respect for money.

If the guy is broke because he sits on his lazy ass all day and can't be bothered to get a job, of course I wouldn't date him because he put himself in that position and he chooses to be lazy and broke. If a guy was broke and it wasn't his fault, like he was robbed, or put in a situation or whatever it would be different. And if he went broke whilst we were dating, I still wouldn't dump him because money can buy you material things that make you happy, but it cannot buy pure inner peace and happiness. However money can make life extremely stressful and that can be a factor but still. I don't know because I have never been there.

I am sure guys wouldn't date a girl who was too lazy to get a job, especially if she was mooching off you.

What if he had a job, it was pretty much the only thing he was good at that he could get paid for, and the job's pay sucked? What if it was all the guy could do to keep his rent and bills paid?

He's probably not going to be able to do much other than rent a movie and make dinner on his stove. Any flowers would most likely be hand cut and gifts on birthdays and anniversaries?? Sure, but I doubt he'd get anything that'd sweep you off your feet.

So one day when he's working late and you're out with your friends you see another guy. Just as good looking, if not better. Funny guy, too. Buys drinks for you and your girlfriends. Gives you a ride home in his Mercedes.

When he asks to come in and be shown around, how much is his income not going to matter then?

I dunno. Right about now more money would relieve just about all the stress in my life. That's pretty much the only thing I sweat these days is the situation with The Flow.

I wouldn't say that money can buy my happiness because I'm already happy...which is probably why more money would work for me.

Sure, there are rich people who aren't happy. I gives a fuck, but there are rich people out there who aren't happy...but they're not happy because of other things or other situations...not because they're rich. Being rich might have helped bring about things they're not happy with, but at some point those people made a decision that created their stress.

People make bad decisions...some people who do so are rich...they then say "More money, more problems." I say "Better decision making, less problems." And that applies to those of us who aren't rich, too.

See...I'm just lucky because I'm blessed. I've got great friends and a fantastic family. More money would be great for me. Right about now, the only time I really get stressed is when I'm working our budget. If that just wasn't a problem...life would be close to perfect.

But again...I'm blessed. Not many people are as fortunate, regardless of how much more money they may or may not have.

Late.
