After my incident with my female-friend, I am skeptical about lady-friends, dates, getting married if I ever won the Mega Millions.  Even petty prizes turned everything upside down.  When it comes to money, I have trouble trusting the opposite sex.

Where's rdgrnr when we need him???

He could tell us all about his "wimmins".

      When I first read about your situation I thought it was a friendship between two women but if you are a man and she considered herself your lady-friend or date, her expectations might have been more.  Women say they want to be treated like equals but some expect better from a man even if they aren't married to them.

      I once had a co-worker who consider me a friend but not her boy friend who would ask to accompany me on my lunch breaks.  She had the idea that when ever we had lunch together I should pay for her lunch too.  I finally had to tell her I considered her a co-worker who could pay for her own lunch just like the guys.  Later after she was fired for missing too much work, she still considered me enough of a friend to be invited to her wedding.

          I don't think I'd get married right now, having not won the lottery. I really enjoy the freedoms I have being single and if I won the lottery I think I would enjoy those freedoms even more, being able to travel and make other decisions without having to consult my partner.

           

          Having said that, there's always the chance of changing my mind, and if I did that after winning the lottery I don't think I would have too big a problem. I don't plan on collecting and letting everyone know my name and I also don't plan on staying in the same city after winning, even the same state. So after collecting through a trust and moving out of state, having to deal with women coming to me just because I've won isn't something I'm that worried about. Yes there is the fact that I have a lot of money so I'd still have to deal with gold-diggers and other women going after me solely because of my money, but through different things I would ensure I would still hang onto it if she does end up divorcing me. I would also not marry her before 1-2 years had passed so that I would have a better understanding of why she's marrying me. As for having to pay child support, having children is something I want even less than getting married (reasons I don't care to get into here) so that isn't even a discussion.

           

          So yea, whether I got married after winning the lottery or not it would be down to my views on marriage overall, not because I don't trust any of them (that's not to say I do trust them all, I have a sister that would probably do anything she could to marry a lottery winner, so I do know how untrustworthy people can be).

              Oh yea she would definitely love that. Thankfully not only would I be claiming anonymously and not telling many other people but she also lives about 3 hours from most of our family, so it would be difficult for her to find out.

                Usually you don't have to tell people you have money, a nice big home in a nice neighhood of wealthy people with a couple of nice cars in the drive way and other people maintaining them why you relax with no obvious means of support gives them a hint.

                  There needs to be an option: winning the lottery will not influence my decision to marry. That would be my vote. I shall marry when the time is right.

                  Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                  In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                    Well yea, but the thing is the only people that would want new houses (or something other than an apartment) is myself and my father (her step-father) and we'd each be moving to two different cities 2,000 miles north (our mom has been doing additions to her current house so I would help her with that, but that's a different story, plus her living is funded by working from home so the sister wouldn't know that she wasn't working).

                      I was reading through some old stories and wanted to throw this out there for if you don't trust women after winning the lottery.

                       

                      http://www.lotterypost.com/news/196888

                       

                      It really is a good story about finding "true love" even after becoming a millionaire. If you really want to get married after winning the lottery it's definitely something to consider, I know it's something I would consider doing if I did want to get married (though going a year hiding my millions would be extremely difficult).
