    I have never been one to have been fortunate enough to expierence the finer things in life. I have worked my tail off to raise my girls by myself. I have never been a materialistic woman and I dont go do for myself hardly ever. Lately, I often wonder what it would be like to be able to do those things. Am I wrong for wanting to meet someone that can do that?

    Never wrong! I feel the same though I don't have a family yet. It's lonely to know your friends are all growing up and having families of their own meanwhile you try to work and save as much as possible and miss out on ever getting to meet someone because you spend your whole life working and in school to try and be able to provide for a family someday.

    Have you heard of VISION BOARD ? It's your personal board with all your dreams and goals in life. Find a day when you can sit along with yourself and think deep about what do you want happen in your life ? You said you workes your tail out to bring up your children. You did an amazing job, now it's time FOR YOU. Imagine you born again. May be you need to take a trip you been waiting for so long and do something you would never thought in a million years to do that. This is gona make your life very excited and energetic, and you wont even notice like your dreams looking straight at you.

    According to Warren Buffett who wrote in his shareholder letter

    "Anyone who says money can't buy happiness simply hasn't learned where to shop."

    Sure money can buy those fine Egyptian cotton sheets, and that Hungarian down which makes you sleep as if in heaven;
    But the truth is you just need enough to make life comfortable. Caring for another person who cares for you means so much more.
    Money isn't making me any happier, but it helps somewhat. I look daily what to buy, it's so hard because I have everything, perhaps it's boredom and the excitement looking for a package on porch, like waiting for Santa, and that will probably get old.

    Love gets old too, it needs just as much nourishment, and excitement. Don't keep things routine. Money does help; arguments of finance is the single largest cause for divorce.
    I send my sister $50 grand a year, she isn't any happier but it makes her life easier. That is all money does, nothing else, but ease the pain to pay the bills.

    I can feel for you, I know how hard it is for a single mother to
    raise kids, have money for cloth, rent, food and schooling, and the utility bills keep rising. No, you don't need a rich man, only a man who can support a family decently. And it will be your interpretation how much decent is.

    You're beautiful looking and your eyes show me you're sincerity and the pain. I'd sweep you up in no time if I could, I can see your eyes twinkle - I very sensuous. BUT, Don't look for money look for a caring man, and it will come.

    Cont...those "finer things" and possessions will only momentarily satisfy when these are void of substance.
    You are loved! That's the most exquisite gift anyone can ever have!
    Things are secondary, although necessary, only secondary.
    And I believe truly deserving people are always rewarded as a way to perpetuate kindness in the world.
    You are beautiful and I wish you the best on your search!

    My modest opinion is that "fortune" (and success, achievement, etc) are concepts that should be individually measured.
    You have achieved a lot: you have been able to raise your kids on you own. Unfortunately, such tremendous successes go unnoticed or unaccounted when compared to financial acquisition. You are fortunate in my books. And succesful. Happiness is a conjunction of so many things, not only money (and you don't need a man to make money)

    There is nothing wrong with that but money cannot buy you love. I am here too without millions but my reason is to see if I can find love that a guy actually has a job and will treat a lady right. But so far all I see here on this site is men that was Barbie so I am thinking that maybe if I do not find someone in thirty days I will just quit looking and let God bring the right person to me so I can fall in love again.

    You are not wrong to want things.  But I will warn you that material things will not make you happy.  Well, they will temporarily.  Unfortunately, I see too many people find "things" become an addiction--they want more and more.  They aren't satisfied.  The truth is happiness will come from your relationships with family, children, and others.  A nice car can't love you.  I like to think backwards.  On my grave do I want it to say, "He had lots of nice things" or "He was loved."  I like the second one.  With that said, I grew up on welfare.  I am now blessed.  Money gives you security but my happiest times were when I was poorer.  Food for thought.
