I ain't sayin' she's a gold-digger...

...but she ain't messin' with no broke nigger...

I really don't know who is worse: a girl who goes out with a guy because he has money and can give her a lifestyle she couldn't afford on her own, or a guy who is stupid enough to throw obscene amounts of money around in the general direction of a girl who is not committed to him in any way color shape or form.

As far as I am concerned both are equally bad. One is like prostitution and the other one is the emobodiement of poor self esteem.

It is one thing to buy a girl a drink at a bar, dinner or even bring her ice cream. It is something entirely different to pay for her electric bill, phone bill, and buy her a car. It is one thing to show appreciation for a nice gesture. It is something entirely different to build a relationship solely on being on the receiving end of lavish gestures.

Why a man would put himself through that is beyond me...I mean, no man can be so incredibly blind that he can't see when he is being milked for all he is worth. And I doubt that any man in his right mind would be okay with knowing that the girl holding his hand is someone he is pretty much renting.

"Honey, I am hungry. Let's go have dinner at *insert name of 5 star restaurant here*" is not the same as "honey, I am hungry. Let's go get something to eat".

I understand that love makes people crazy but come on now. Trying to impress somebody by throwing abscene amounts of luxuries in the general direction isn't going to make someone like you any more but simply like you for the wrong reasons. And that's assuming they even like you at all...

I feel bad for guys like that.

It's too bad I know so many chicks like those.

Do you know any in the Atlanta area who are of Asian descent? Because I've got money to spend on the right prostitute.

this post leads the reader to ask, what prompted the post to begin with? I mean, you're right on the money (no pun intended... HAH!) about that but what led to the initial thought?

Miss E. -

I could tell you the story but unfortunately, if I write down what happened I will end up in a situation I REALLY don't want to be in...

Let's just say that the more I know people, the more I like dogs :)

Throw some money and luxuries my way... I'll decide after you've spoiled me a bit whether or not I like you.
