If the man was poor- what would the women bring to the table? How does a man's money define what a woman will bring to the table?
If George needs to know the answer to what a woman can or will bring to the table then I feel sorry for him as he has never experienced a genuine caring and nuturing relationship.
I think the answer is enduring, comfortable companionship.
A dog (or cat) is can be company but never a companion. A hooker can provide sex and companionship but not enduring comfort.
@Orlanda35 - "a man may have a house but who makes it a home?" - I do. I make it my home. It's where I feel comfortable. I do not need a woman for this. I can cook the pants off most women so I hardly need one for meals or, for that matter, any other domestic chore.
lol, that is such a man thing to say. It's just like those dad's that say to their stay-at-home mother partner, 'what do you do all day?' If you think about it and look harder you'll see the answer is obvious.
I haven't read the other comments, so I may be repeating, but the answer to this question is-
humanity, a home and family.
A millionaire may own a house but who makes it a home, who would have the photo's of children and special occations blown up and displayed (or for that matter, who would think to do this), who would organise Christmas and other special family events, who would maintain the family traditions, who would have the children and do the majority of their upbrining, who would be there to rush you to the hospital if you broke a leg, had an asthma attack or heart attack and then nurse you afterwards and who would he have long intimate conversations with into the early hours of the night? And there are sooooo many more things that a lone millionaire, with only a dog and and occational prostitute, would not be happy to live with out.
Well now I think of it the millionaire could have children without a woman, Michael Jackson did. He had enough money to pay surrogates and then hire nannies.
It's interesting to imagine the guy's dog doing all of these things, like sitting at the other end of the table at the guy's birthday dinner, or staring into the millionaire's eyes as he talks about his hopes for the future as the sun rises on new years day.
But, if a millionaire feels that he is fine without a human companion, then fine, that's alright too. One man's idea of happiness isn't necessarily that of another. :-)
This is a great topic for a novel.
Thank you for that thoughtful answer Danny. Men need the feminine influence in their lives, and unless they have ever truly had a woman who was a partner, they just don't get it. Women give their everything when they are in love. Poor George of the Jungle is still swinging in the trees and needs to grow up. Maybe that is what he is here to learn, who knows? CD
LOL A man is not wealthy if he doesn't have a good woman.
Instead of buying love and affection and sex, he should attempt to attract her based on his inner qualities he brings to the table. No amount of money will keep him happy in every area of life. I have some very rich friends who are single males. They say they deserve someone who values them for who they are, not what they have. They keep themselves busy but seek that ideal woman on a regular basis by making female friends and dating. A smart man will screen out golddiggers. Even the pretty ones who pretend to care. They are not hard to expose. Experience can return good decisions.
Maybe some day we all will find a compatiple mate who values us the way we desire to be valued.
I am very sorry for your friend as he has probably never met a decent woman or simply hasn't noticed one. Moreover I am very sorry for him as he has so much basic needs, not letting such important and fulfilling moments into his life, such as meaningful conversations, sharing the plans for the future, freshly made coffee in the morning, smile of his woman, which can cure and inspire.
Money means a lot and it is the biggest indicator for a man how responsible he is for his life, how he can manage profitably his time and how truthwothy he can be in a long-term. Though it is not an indicator of his maturity, mental health, flexibility and wisdom.
It's not how we see men it's a fact it's how they act. Every man I have met and talked to online all go right to the boobs so it is not anyway that we protray men it's how they portray themselves. You may be the exception to the rule and that's great but since you are not a women you really have not experienced this degrading act.
Ask "George" who is going to take care of him when he is lying on his death bed? Who is going to whip his ass when he is shitting himself and can't move? Who is going to love him in sickness & health?
Perhaps his call girl or perhaps his dog will lick it clean.
If sex is simply a sport, a dog's loyalty/love/affection are enough, then yes...George might not need a woman. You should ask yourself if those are your needs as well?
Hopefully, one might want to look for a true partener, a partner that can fill a void no call girl or dog could...
The problem is that George seems to have created a logical error in equating woman with sex (call girl) and loyalty/affection (dog). It is an easy error, but where we as human being start running into trouble is where we rely on our evolutionary instincts to tell us what the opposite sex "should" do for us, and forget that we can have all of those things, but if we are even somewhat more advanced than our most primal urges...we need more. Women can sometimes make the same error, equating men with money and/or influence. Sure, women love stability and security...afterall it is an evolutionary NEED...but for there to be a substantial relationship...we need more. What that "more" is I think is very individual. You don't have to, nor should you feel bad because you couldn't think this up for George. George needs to do some soul searching, or get ready to buy a poodle.
