- Man with looks or man with money?
obviously man with money is all it matters for girls of today!
what you say?
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.
I say those are some pretty shallow girls you've been running across! Yikes...
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.
Looks I don't care that much about, Money I don't need anyone to support me. I like a man with a great personality, looks and money really don't matter
I'm a woman of today and my answer is neither.
I go for compatibility, sense of humor, and honor.
No wonder I'm broke
Mighty Mom, if you are broke how are you going to pay your "fair share"?
Better start looking for one of those rich Republican donors!
hey mighty mom I did the same and you r right I am broke and disheartened too.Did you really become a mom i see no chance!
sounds like the options were the same..they can both give you a headache..
ain't there any other options? or just add some free stuffs on the options like
man with money (old)
man with looks (blind)
(billzd, welcome to hubpages, carefull this time, ok? )
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.
How about neithor.... When I found my man, I was not interested in him based on his looks nor did I care how much money he made. It was his personality after nagn me for a week...
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)
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!
and one who doesn't "pass out" (sleep) on couches and in chairs. If there's one thing that irks the heck out of me, it's having someone sleep on couches and in chairs. I wouldn't care if he was great looking and had all the money in the world. If he passes out on the couch or when sitting at the table - he's out.
you just eliminated half of the male population!
I didn't know it was a full half but - boy - I know it's common among them. I don't know... "Certain people" ought to go to bed if they're tired or else figure out how unappealing it is for everyone else to have to be looking at a carcass on the couch - or worse, The Nodded-Off Noggin at the dining room table.
haha...but the couch is soooo comfortable! Geez!
I mean, what? Did I just incriminate myself? hrmmm
Klara, I'm shocked! There are all kinds of smart, honest guys right here on HP! And I'm guessing there are more than just a few that would offer you money!
Don't be shocked, logic. That's the problem... the good honest men are working on their hubs instead of being out there, trying to meet women.
Or we're out there working on getting one of those job thingies and dont have time to write hubs, post on the forums or meet women.
You're excused, Jonathan! Thanks for your birthday wishes.
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'.
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.
And the good looking ones are either gay or married
(Ducks for cover)
not gay, not married and not gettin any
so howbout a new theory?
NEW THEORY -
When you focus too much on what you don't want, you might miss all the good opportunities that pass you by.
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'
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.
Well smart maybe ,but rich no ,lol ,least not off Adsense
I guess too that beauty is in the eye of the beholder,because Ive seen some odd looking couples in real life. But then again,Im odd looking so my hubby must be the cute one...
1} A guy with good work ethics
2) A good conversationlist,( that extends past sports,the best beer,and whats for dinner?)
3) Has integrity.
The rest I can teach him
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. 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.
It would be nice to be attracted to someone
money is not #1
all the other stuff kindness honesty understanding are good
but what about men? Most of them want a gorgeous smart wealthy woman.
Naah !! MEN just go for the looks , they dont care about money.
looks in a women is all they need
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.
hey now...a good personality and an equally great sense of humor go a long way!!
looks #1, (in women), smarts #2, money #3
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.
a geek..a man with a brain is extremely attractive..and if he's also good looking that doesn't hurt either!
Hmm, could u turn her into a blonde and make her a little taller?
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!
Italian model Elisabetta Gregoraci and her husband, Flavio Briatore (yes, he's a gazillionaire).
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.
But honestly, neither one is even in my top five. Intelligence, responsibility, ambition, good moral character, compatible interests, compatible personality, sexual compatibility, etc. are all much more important to me.
I would never want to be with a guy just because he is rich . He could be a very boring stuck up snob & I would hate that .
Some very good looking guys are too full of themselves so I prefer a down to earth average guy .
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.
He is good looking as far as I am concerrned
i dont really look for good looking man, he is just a pain in chest, and rich man also makes him feel he is superior than me.. i want someone who has job, i dont care if i even get paid more than he is, as long as he loves me and loyal to me... and of course i am attracted to him.. that basically i know well fall for a deep love..... :-)

Do you get angry if your boyfriend/spouse looks at other women?Assuming he doesn't do it in front of you, is looking harmless? Would you want him to be honest about it if he does or keep it to himself?

Ladies do you like a man with a full head of hair or is a shaved or bald head the new sexy?Some women like men with a full head of hair while others prefer the look of a shaved head. Which do you think is sexier or do you like a military crew cut?
