      Yikes!  I hope the ladies work out a third option for guys like me!  That being said I believe that answere probably depends on the woman you are asking.

      A person with a rewarding job is a person who is competent in the world, and I admire competence. Inherited wealth tends to create a spoiled brat, but a person with money he earned is a person who is hard-working and capable.

      So, money.

    Preference 1:  Kind and intelligent.
    Preference 2:  Kind and at least not an ignorant "moron"


    Looks and/or money would be nice extras, but neither alone cuts it as far as I'm concerned.  Looks-wise, I'd just want it to be someone who I found attractive (regardless of looks).  Money-wise, I'm not necessarily impressed by someone else's money.

    In order of importance...

    Survival skills (must be able to survive economic disaster)

    Same general world outlook ("Hey, that's stupid!" "Damn, it sure is!")

    Same general kid-raising philosophy ("He's reached the rebellious stage - finally!"  "I know, isn't it great?")

    Trustworthiness ("Can you keep a secret?" "No."  "Okay, thanks for your honesty.")

    Consistency (tends to do A after doing B - makes home life so much more comfortable)

    Isn't boring (except about guy things - that's okay)

    Willing to change (in terms of adapting to changing circumstances, not in terms of being willingly molded like clay)

    etc
    etc

    Doesn't leak money

    Doesn't hoard money

    Doesn't look like a slug (very much don't like that slimy coating)

    I think it's harder now to find men that are honest and smart, so if a woman is to settle for what's available, she might as well look for one that at least has something to offer - money! wink

              Oh sure not a problem. Just another notch on the old coffin post, right?
              But to stay on subject, I find it to be somewhat of a curse that I'm good looking. Most women assume I'm a womanizer and the rest seem to assume I have very little else to offer. Of course, most women tell me I'm too picky. I only want a mature comitment-oriented woman with looks and brains and talent and the sexdrive of a Klingon. I really dont think that constitutes being 'picky'.

                klarawieckposted 5 years ago in reply to this

                not picky at all! You know what you want. Back in the day when I was 'looking' I didn't really know what I wanted, so I went with what felt right. I knew how to differentiate between a strong attraction and actual compatibility, and I met a few men whom I felt a very strong attraction but I knew it wouldn't last a month. I picked the right man for me, but until that moment I kept all my options open. You just never know who the right person is.

              Actually the method that seems to come up tops is this:

              Just enjoy doing 'other stuff', ie working,hobbies,gym(jogging a good one) socialising with the intent to enjoy yourself and not to 'look' for someone, and before ya know it will happen.

              Often the most attractive people are the ones who are 'not looking' wink

              Dont ever sell ya'self short either (not saying you do)
              You are a good looking guy ,smart ,coupled with a delightful personality.

                It's very difficult for a man of my gender to 'not look'. Which is why I'm convinced that the woman I marry will win my heart by breaking into my house while I'm asleep.

          LOL

          I like people who are genuine. The biggest turn off for me is when a man pretends to be something he's not... either acting cool to try to impress me or his friends, or hiding who he truly is to not get hurt. I like my man to be simple and easy to read. wink Looks are not that important and money is not as important as much as the intention and effort to help keep a financial stability.

    Some people care only about their reputation alot and only wishes to be seen with someone who's vigourously attractive. They are cruel-hearted and greedy, and most of them don't even realise it yet.

    Repuation comes before money, because what you have defines what you are as a person. They don't realise, that having a well-built man or a georgous busty woman is not as wealthy as having someone who's accually there for you and loves you more than they love themselves.

    I'm not an assuming person often, and it does scare me sometimes, if girls care about money and repuation more than love. We live in a shallow world, but there are some women out who do prefer to sale them off to ugly old millionaires for anything.

        LOL, men do care about money.  I know because I have lots of it and I married at least one or two "gentlemen" who spent it like they just won the lottery and only had six months left to live. 

        I'm an attractive woman, I have my own business, I'm well educated, I take good care of myself so I'm in great shape and look many years younger than my age, but guys always seem to get just a little bit more interested in me after one of my friends drops the "Money" bomb.  I am never sure if it's me that attracts them or my bank account.

    I say I've already had the man with the money, and the men with the looks, both have their positives and negatives... I go for the guy with the interesting mind and personality now.  Men with money can be controlling and pretty boys can be too much into themselves and not enough into you.  I'll take a man who is interesting, entertaining, and knows how to have a good time. I don't care how fat his wallet is or what he looks like.

    I think most men want a woman who will do all the work in the relationship - you know, prod them to remember special days and demand attention - so they can just go along with her.  Those men are so uninteresting and self-centered and so I know I don't want one of those.  Really, I don't want any of them, I can enjoy them for who and what they are but I don't want to "have" any of them!  wow!  I never knew that about myself before now! 

    however, if a good looking man with money came along and demanded my attention I would give it willingly and immediately forsake all others! lol

    This question is a tad unfair.

    Choosing looks over money may make your ego happy for a while but if all he has to offer is good looks then it won't be long before you discover that isn't enough.

    Choosing money over looks may mean that you are financially stable but that also does not equate to happiness.  What difference does it make if you have all the things money can buy if you aren't attracted to your spouse? 

    Marriage should be a balance of attraction and stablility so that there is no room for resentment to grow.

    I love my husband who has a great sense of humor , is loving, caring a great cook ,compatable in the bedroom !! enjoys the activities like snorkeling with me , we are traveling Australia with a caravan & he certainly is not rich.
