It’s 2018 and women are now the ones in charge of romantic “pursuit.”

True, most younger men are totally emasculated.

Rather sad that nobody gives a crap about the pursuit anymore. Perhaps our new love pursuit is apathy and complacency followed by intellectualism. Of course having money certainly helps.

Any man that brings money into a question about love or romance makes me go yawn

Yeah, really

I expect a man to be able to pay for himself and be self sufficient

I do not want him to support me, as I too can pay for myself and am self sufficient.

Once a man mentions money, I just go off him straight away.

I have one more thing to add to that before going to bed.

Anybody who moans about any of the below, and a thousand other similar statements, all have one thing in common.

Women only want men with money

Men only want me for sex

I am too ugly to get a girlfriend/boyfriend

Men only want my body.

Women only want gigantic penises.



That thing is:



No personality.



There are plenty of ugly/broke/good looking/ regular sized people in happy relationships.

Why? Because they have a personality that somebody wants to spend time with.

Pursuing someone makes only sense if both people are interested and want to be pursued.

Too many people are barking up the wrong tree - be realistic who you are hoping to attract. If you couldn't attract a 20 year old when you were 20, it suddenly won't happen when you are 40 or 50.

Totally agree with Molly - yes, there are people out there that are only interested in themselves and their gratification - there are also decent people that aren't. Plenty are trying to take advantage, it's up to everyone themselves to recognise these and keep away from them.

Yes, women don't need to pursue anyone. They can pick and choose, of the best !

Men r looking for sex and money combined. Try to marry them, and gets a nasty shock.

Men believe they r the only ones with any smarts, till they realise the opposite too late !!!

It is a tough world out there peoples ?

But Molly, when two people are in a relationship money are something that should the talked about sooner than later. Romance is romance, life cost money...
Let's say you are both self sufficient, how do you measure the money put into everyday expenses from each of you. Or you just live separate, each one in their own house and meet occasionally...
I believe it can not be measured and one always gives more of something and the other one should balance with more of another thing....
Women seem to be way too sensitive when it comes to money, it almost becomes off-putting for men....

Roll over chivalry and money, make way for audacity and balls of steel. In the old era man offered woman property and protection and this is all replaced now by personality and performance. It's a different type of grafting expected from men.

Krema, of course finances are an important part of life, That is just a fact. We'd be destitute on the streets without money . And life includes relationships

My point was about men who say women only date for money.

Within a normal good relationship, it doesn't become an issue, because it isn't the overriding concern of either.
My experience is that it balances out over time.

I think, for me at least, it is better if both have a similar socio-economic background. It is easier.
