Money Can Buy You Love

    awesome77posted 6 years ago

    I know some of my fellow female hubbers might disagree with me, but when you look at the reasons, your primal instincts will agree with me!

    i am here to tell you that money can buy you love because:

    money facilitates love

    nice clothes

    nice shoes

    perfect teeth

    great apartment

    excellent food

    So, while many have the ilussion that money can't buy you love, it sure can give you many, many beautiful choices to chose from!

      Ever hear that the clothes don't make the man? It would be greed, not love. It can buy time with someone, not much else.

      None of what your write justifies your saying. Money CAN'T and DOESN'T buy love. Money buys sex and pretty much all the things you mention.

        Ask yourself, you want a guy

        that is well dressed- takes money

        that has good teeth - takes money

        that has good living place - takes money

        That is the problem, many walk around saying money does not matter, but it takes money to make a guy measure up to your standard!

        Call it whatever, all i know is that, without money your chances and choices are limited in love!

          For your information you don't choose who you fall in love with. What you are writing about is planning, and that has nth to do with love.
          You could be a millioner, and still be lonely and without love.

          I don't want a guy who's entire person is made up on everything he has/wears. I wanted a friend, someone who cared, someone kind and sweet and I have that in my penniless fiance. I am happy with him, despite the fact he wears plaid pants with a rainbow dyed t-shirt with long johns underneath. I love him despite the crooked tooth and all his "flaws" are important because they make him who he is. I don't care if he doesn't speak well in crowds, it's a part of him that makes him so much more important to me. I have had the opportunity to leave him for a man who had a substantial amount of money. I declined his advances because I love my fiance. If money buys love, well, why do I love Jiffy? Simple, it doesn't and never could.

    Money does not buy love.  Period.  If you think differently, you're an idiot.  I know this for a fact.  I have lots of experience in this area. I'm more than "comfortable" financially, and I've also been married 5 times.  So I rest my case. While money might be able to buy you time and fun with the man or woman of your dreams, it does not buy their love.

    awesome77, women are not the only ones who might be money gubbing gold diggers.  There are more than enough men out there willing to sell their souls as well as some of their other parts for a Rolex and a Porsche.

    I agree that women are hardwired to seek out security, but that is survival programming deep in our cavewoman brains.  We do after all bear and raise children and therefore finding the best possible provider is most important.  In prehistoric times it might have been the strongest and most powerful hunter... in modern times, it is obviously the man who makes the most money.   But none of that has anything to do with love.

    None of what you listed signifies love. Period. They sigified things, objects, stuff.

    None of which create the feeling you're talking of.

    I had the money, had the great house, cars, clothes etc - all of which my ex-husband has retained. That should speak volumes.

    Actually, money can buy you love.

    When you have money you can afford to go where there are the kinds of people you wish to meet.

    The best example of this is of course college. The laws of statistics will then take over, and sooner or later you will meet The One.

      That doesn't create the love, it simply makes it easier to search for one. It isn't the cause of the love.

    If you live life as dream then sure love exists, home exists,friendship exists and everything that people want to disagree with OP exists.

    If we get into reality and stretch every one of those relations and concepts then none stands for long. Unfortunately, i live in that reality and i realized that unless you live life as dream something will haunt you and you'll try to justify every action of others and will post threads like 'money can buy you love'. lol

    "Love".Without a doubt the most over used misunderstood word in the language.I'm curious.What is the definition of the word love,and what verifies that we have or are giving it[try answering That in less than a zillion words].Is there validation of love independent of emotion,reason,and material circumstance.

    Bill Manningposted 6 years ago

    Actually love is a very selfish emotion. You love something or someone because you want it, you feel you need it and must have it. Love is about seeking what you think you lack.

    Those who fall in love easy have a higher need for whatever it is they think is love.

    Those with a stable life with a high degree of self-love and satisfaction with their life and themselves tend to not fall in love easy. Because they don't have that big need of whatever it is others want.

      @bill manning you say love is a very selfish emotion, but you could look at the opposite why.  Love is an emotion of being self-less because when you love someone you do not think of yourself.   I disagree when you say "love is about seeking what you lack".  Could not you love is about giving to others what you already have - LOVE.

          I understand what your saying and I also understand if you disagree with what I said, but I believe love is in fact a selfish emotion.

          You say love is about giving others what you already have. But WHY do you want to give that love to others? To get love back, to feel needed, to feel wanted, to feel like your loved in return.

          Would you give your love to someone you hated? No. Why not? Because you don't want anything they can give you in return.

          I'm not saying love is wrong, it's what makes us want to do what is right, to raise our kids, to stick together. Love is good, I agree.

          I just disagree that love is something you give away for no reason. We all want to feel wanted, to feel loved. So we give our love to those who we think will give love back, to give us what we need. smile

      I completely disagree "starme77" with you! Money while not everything, but it is the foundation of every true happiness and love.

      Yes, money is not everything, but with money everything is possible, including true love!

        O.K if that's how you feel , that's how you feel - no argument there - if you look at the old saying "The Love of Money is the root to all evil"  It's not money it's self - but the Love of it that is the serious problem.  You say money is the foundation of every true happiness and love - well not really - actually its a root - you know - like a tree root and the love of it creates evil shit in the world - for example - money buys a fancy fast car - the person driving that car pulls up alongside a poor persons car - sticks their nose in the air - looks down on the poor man's car - makes the poor man feel like less of a man - over something money buys - that's the love of money being the root of making others feel like they are less of a person cause they don't have as shiney a paint job - that's evil - now the person with the fancy expensive car that pulls alongside the poor man and smiles and hands him a dollar - that - well is just money -  Love is the foundation and root of true happiness not a freaking dollar smile

    Things are nice but they are and always be just things.  As nice as a Lexus car is it can't care about you in bed sick.  That $900.00 suit you bough will never send you a get well card.

    When we are young these things are important to us but if we make to old age we have a different prospective on life maybe because time is running out.

    Money will never replace the love you get from someone who really cares about you.

        No man is an island and one can not always find happiness in themselves but when they spend time with loved one they can lighten their burden when one is unable to do it on their own.

        Heavenly delights are only temporary, how long can someone drive a nice car before they have to get another one to once again feel they happiness they had with the first one?

               you have a point no question, but as you move further in life you'll come to see others make a difference in our life because there will be times when we can get pass all the problems we encounter and that's when we are thankful for that special someone who can bring a smile to our face, but when we're young and in good health we feel we don't need anyone.

            You are correct in that attitude does play an important part in how we look out at the world.

    Money can't buy you love, but it can provide opportunities.  Say you are interested in an intellectual person as a mate and you never had enough money to go to college or go places where bright people normally are.  Unless you hang out at book stores and local libraries, your chances of meeting someone you're interested in are much smaller.
    It can also make you more attractive which can make you more appealing to the opposite sex.  Once again, there's that opportunity thing.
    So in short, no, but it doesn't hurt.

    Money can't buy you love, it can buy you an imitation of love but that's not love. Maybe somebody will get with a rich person for his/her money and then actually fall in love with the person, but deffo money can't just buy you love.

    Money can't buy love.  It does make it easier to create a better image, but that is the only way it can help with love.  Having decent personal hygiene does wonders too, which doesn't cost much money.  I wrote a hub about money and happiness which anyone is free to check out. 
    But money doesn't mean much to me.  I spend it and can always make more.  My husband and I have finally reached a comfortable financial zone but throughout all our lives have always been near broke.  Never made us less happy or love each other less.
