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.
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'.
"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. Happiness!I'd"Love" to have a chance to Prove that money Doesn't buy happiness....just a tittle lol there.
Did you know that the chemical activity in the brain while feeling love is identical,and releases the same endorphins to the same receptors,as shooting heroin.Brain science is a fascinating area[I am no expert]that I'd like to invite you to peek at.I'm not being contentious here.I believe love to be a high that I ...just...Love!lol
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.
Not very romantic huh,,,,, guess no Valentines kisses for me this year!
Sorry , but I disagree - love is not what you buy - it's who you are - you can only take one thing out of this world - your love for others and you can only really leave one thing in it - your love for others - money means nothing to me and.. stuff... well... everything will eventually end up in the dump one day polluting our mother earth - I hold less in the way of love of things that pollute the earth and more in the way of love of others cant take that crap with ya
@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.
"Sorry , but I disagree - love is not what you buy - it's who you are - you can only take one thing out of this world - your love for others and you can only really leave one thing in it - your love for others - money means nothing to me and.. stuff... well... everything will eventually end up in the dump one day polluting our mother earth - I hold less in the way of love of things that pollute the earth and more in the way of love of others cant take that crap with ya'
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
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.
I wouldn't say most - but many females do seek out guys with money - its kinda like legalized prostitution if ya ask me - not love - but sex for money , stuff and things really and then they try to rationalize their incessant love of money by pretending to themselves and the guy that they actually do love em
Try getting into OSU or U of O or Idaho State or any one of many colleges if your poor - wow - seems to be a whole lot more colleges for the poor than there are for the rich - cause the rich like to hang together in their own little weird corner of the world and in my opinion - they should stay there and compare weird little shit like who has a better i-pod or what ever - better to have the money worhipers all wrapped up in two little places than to spread em out among the real people of the world
and those who love to enjoy all that using the money of someone else and opt to love that person in the bargain, can definitely "sell" love to that person. If that person happens to die, they will continue to love the wealth of that person!
should to said as money can buy pretty and beautiful things may be include lady or man like a things.. not for love.. sometime can use for someone but not at all.. it can buy beautiful things for start to get more..
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.
Unconditional love is impractical; the very theory of it is a trap designed to snare newly weds in the abyss that is marriage and inevitable divorce? We create sociologigal expectations of each other that are both...
Suddenly this question strike in my mind today ... " Which is more important LOVE OR MONEY" to live a happy life ?? If any one have to select her partner which criteria one should follow for choosing her life...
The following post is in response to a statement made by another hubber and the many posts I've read using logical fallacies:"the burden of proof" is NOT on the believers. There is no burden to prove He exists...
