For the woman who asked this question....Dont you think that they want the same thing everyone does? True unconditional love. Not the kind you can buy with money. I think everyone wants that. Its something that cant be bought, but is rare & hard to find.
I was refering to any man in general and having only one good woman, lol. As for George, I have not seen or spoke to him lately. As for his brother, I can not answer to that, LMAO. You will just have to wait and see. I think George is busy right now making a new movie if my failing memory serves me correctly, lol. Wait, I must be having a "Blonde" moment, RLMAO. Or, may be it is a "Pre-Senior" moment, lol. Talk to you soon cutie!
Since "want" means "to lack" I guess a man with everything wants the answer to this riddle (which, honest to God, was answered correctly by almost 95% of kindergarteners and only 25% of college graduates):
"What's greater than God, more evil than the Devil, poor men have it, rich men need it, and if you eat it, you'll die?" [DON'T SPOIL IT FOR EVERYONE ELSE, E-MAIL ME WITH YOUR ANSWER]
This question would depend on one's perception of 'everything'. A man could be incredibly wealthy in the financial aspect, own a yacht, a Bentley and three houses in different countries, yet have absolutely nothing. On the other hand, a man could be living paycheck to paycheck, scraping by everyday, live in a trailer park and have everything he ever dreamed of. Money may buy material things beyond imagination...but leave you with a profound emptiness in your soul

Beauty in an out is desirable for both gender, mostly men that is for sure..they can be so captivated by what they see but God made it this way...men are very visual, women are much more feelers of words and some visualization etc..reason why women love romance novel and fantasies more than men.
BQ, I think one can only call it a "fuss about money" when you have money. It's an arrogance that some wealthy people have. The vast majority of people struggle to make ends meet. And the poor around the world are poorer than the poorest in either of our countries. Money becomes the means of survival.
What do I think of money in general? 1. Health first..w/o that nothing matters, it's an equalizing factor. 2. The old sayings, "money can't buy love or happiness" is true. 3. Having money or not having money has the potential of ruining any relationship. 4.Some people are so driven by accumulating wealth that they miss out on a lot in life. 5.Can't take it with you when you die 6.Those who have loads of money should give to charitable organizations. 7.Wealth may give you power, but it won't buy you class, and it won't buy you genuine love.
What do I think of money in terms of seeking a mate?
I'll be honest as I have nothing to loose, nothing to gain.. It would be real nice to have a partner to lean on both emotionally and financially in hard times (and good times). Woman tend to seek security...in these realms...even when they can take care of themselves. Relationships are all about give and take and finding an equalibrium so that both are satisfied. Who is the giver or taker changes as we face the vissisitudes of life.
I'm a "greedy" woman. I want that love and grand passion. I want to be adored and spoiled. Don't we all? I am not high maintenence in that i want "all the finer things in life" Sure I'd love that '53 T bird convertible to flit about town in ...(aka grace kelly style..ya know scarf around neck, oversized sunglasses...), the ocean side home, the 2 carat princess cut diamond... Do I need it, crave it? NO. More importantly for me, having money would allow me to pursue things I want to EXPERIENCE in life (not obtain)...travel, explore, have a bit more fun, as well as short term volunteering for NGO in a developing country providing child/maternal care to the poorest, perhaps working in refugee camps...a life long dream. Giving and helping others have brought me the greastest riches and joy in life. I am not religious, but spiritual and feel we are all our brothers and sisters keepers...all interconnected.
Money would allow me more choices, would make my life and loved ones life a bit easier...I don't consider myself a gold digger, a term frequently used in the forums. I have been alone a long time now(by choice). I can take care of myself, will experience the things that are important to me (have experienced much already) either by myself or with a partner. So the "fuss about money" is you need some, but for me and what I want in life....not an exorbitant amount. I don't need a partner to obtain my wants. So you asked and there you have it...for better or worse!!(I edited original post). Anyone else on the same page as me?
Enjoyed your though out post, I agree with you on most points...even for years I have thought of doing missionary work..have not gotten to it but maybe some day.
The fuss about money is a rich or poor problem...when you have wealth you have to be deligent to preserve it as it will go out fast if you don't do your Due Deligence.. When you are poor money is a critical factor of surviving.
Lots of wealthy Christian people give around on average 10% to the church, missions or charities etc...
I like the way you replied to the question I asked. Fits your Alias.

Since you are in the military, I know your type of training look beyond money, it is all about Team work and special training to look after one another in survival situation etc..and coming out of your assignment alive with as many of your crew member as you can.
Oh miss Georgia Peach, I am sorry for not being here lately. I just rad your post and I want to thank you for the kind words. I do have to agree with you in your statement though. The right one is the opportunitive words here as you stated! Again, thanks sweetie! I will have to go find the English Rose to read and contemplate on, lol. Please excuse me for my lack of involvement lately, I will make it a point to be better proactive in the future.
