    Maybe i'm a strange woman but i can't believe how many ladies on this site only want a man because he can provide them with a certain lifestyle!
    Well i'm sorry girls but what happened to standing on your own two feet and finding your own way in the world.
    I don't think you can really enjoy anything in life unless you have worked for it.
    i come from a working class irish family and it's been hard for me at times but I think i'm doing very well. I don't want for anything and I have a great life that I have created for myself. I'm proud of it and I don't loose sleep because i'v trampled over anyone or used anyone to get where I am.
    Am i the only one who feels like this?
    I think i'll just go out onto the lawn and burn my bra!

    I am disapointed about how many profiles say i want a man who can spoil me, or something along those lines...

    My last gf and i dated for over 4 years, and i can assure you she was never in need of anything!
    But if before we got together she said, "i want a man who can buy me" etc etc... i would never have asked her out.

    When i look at profiles i look for interesting things written down. Something that makes me want to get to know the person... The second i read anything that says gimmie gimmie i close that window.

    I dont think people wanting a rich person, is looking for love... and someone who replys to that kind of profile, cant honestly expect to find love, maybe something else, but not love...

    Bottom line is, if you are serious about finding love, talk about what makes you "you". Then when someone writes to you, you know it is because they want to know you.

    Sorry to blab on so much, just annoyed at how often i see it.

    very cute dog/cat/"fluffy thing" you have there cocopopz!!!

    For me what I would like is an equal in life. I don't want to be dependant on another person end of story.
    I would just like to say this money grabbing attitude is not just a female affliction. i have had more than a few e-mails from men looking for some one to bank role them. Well I may be blonde but i'm certainly not dumb!

    Hey Coco,

    Great points about not appreciating things that are merely given to you. I always loved the end of "It's a Wonderful Life" when Jimmy Stewart learns that no man is poor who has friends. Some of the richest people I know are also some of the loneliest and most messed up while some of the happiest people I know have little discretionary income. Instead of going to the fancy restaurants to see and be seen they stay at home to cook and spend time together. Money does help reduce stress but there's a lot more to life. However, I don't want to discourage the bra burning, sounds like a great campifre.
