We all what to win the lottery and become rich. But what does it feel like to be rich. I live a middle class existance thanks to my parents. But there is this girl I like I feel ran off with another guy because he got his own house. It doesn't bother me. I was wondering if you won the lottery you wouldn't know if people like you for you. I feel selfish that way. Would that bother you guys. If you are rich, you would get the girls but would you want the girl that would like you if you were not rich.

    Hell, you don't have to be rich for that. Just follow your heart....!

      Wouldn't bother me a bit. In fact I'd have a harem around me at all times.

      Look at Hugh Hefner, he pays his bunnies a thousand bucks a week allowance, plus fringe benefits. Do you think they like him because he's a nice guy?

      Life's too short to worry about all that lovie dovie stuff. With an almost 65 percent divorce rate, you can have it.

      I don't have fun with women because of their intellect or whatever else people define as virtues. If I want intellect I'll go to the library. If I want some lovin', I'll ring the bell, and be swamped with about ten 23 year old brunettes...LOL

        "What does it feel like to be rich?"

        I am rich - not with money - but rich in family and friends.  It feels good!

        I never choose a woman based on her income - I expect the same in return.

          Enlighten me please.  What's wrong with being intelligent?  What does that have to do with money?

          Life's too short not to, although worrying about it doesn't help.  You've got to give love to get love.  Personally, I don't look for "lovie dovie" but a close, loving relationship is a blessing. 

          Editgap, I'm sorry someone you cared about is gone from your life, but you write your middle class existence is the result of having successful parents.  I don't know how old you are, but maybe it wasn't his money or the house that attracted her, but his drive and independence.  If you are 18 or 20, there's certainly nothing wrong with living with your folks, especially if you are in school or saving for a home.  But if you are older and still living with Mom and Dad, I can tell you that would be a turn off for many women.

            I didn't mean to ruffle any feathers by saying that.

            I have no problem with intelect, wit, humor, or any other attributes in women, or anybody. What I meant by "fun" was a word substitute for a more explicit action that I didn't want to throw out here in a public forum...If you know what I mean...

            As the Lovie thing goes, I'm in no way demeaning couples who's relationships are succeeding or even rocky, but that It's just not my thing. Too many argumentative relationships, mostly having to do with finances. On the other hand, I'm not exactly running around everyday with different women either. That would constitute dire consequences regarding diseases. I'm trying to find a balance. BUT!!!, If I had mucho money, I would just concentrate on having only the upper crust of everything, not just women mind you, but the best of everything. Eliminating all the crap in between. By crap I mean the arguing, the nagging, the headaches of everyday struggle. The crap would also include personal, physical and mental challenges on my part to never worry about money...ever again.

            A lot of people keep using that tired old phrase.." Money won't buy you hapiness". We live in a material world. In this material world you need money and lots of it to just even break out of the middle class these days.

            Once I have huge amounts of money, everything else falls into place. You can help your family, friends, charity, own harems, even save the whales If you want to. But In my mind cash is king. That comes first.

             

            That would truly be heaven on earth....LOL

                You know they say you dont pay for the "good time" you pay em to leave

                And as far as being rich is concerned its almost another role you have to assume,

                you loose one set of problems and pick up another.  But hey we'd all love that second set

                of problems.  You got so many people being phony, laughing at your jokes when they not

                even funny.  Now thats one way to see if you are rich, tell a stale joke

                              Just kidding.  I'm just happy I haven't lost all of my hair.  Actually, I like dark hair.  I don't think it would look good on me however.  Once I wanted to darken my hair and I bought a shampoo-in rinse at the drugstore.  When I was finished, my hair was orange and I had a sales meeting in the morning.  I'll never forget it.  I ran out and got another bottle to lighten it, but I ended up with light red hair.  I walked into the office and a guy from Chicago looked at me and said "Nancy, I always thought you were blonde!"
