Hi all, I have a question for you all. If you had a choice in either: 1. you found the woman of your dreams that would love you forever, but you would have to live a life where you probably couldnt make much money at all, but you would have her. or 2. you have a great job that makes you feel great and you actually like going to each day but you cant have the woman of your dreams. what choice would you make. yes there are a lot of women out there, but will the other woman ever live up to the woman of your dreams? and i guess you could say that about jobs too, that there are a lot of jobs out there. tell me what you think. thanks lojack

Money. You can lease love.

Love. You can't buy, rent or lease REAL love.

Better find the love, because there are few people that will "love" you. When the going gets tough, all desert you. I got one who "loves" me dispite my bad habits, aging looks, and middle class income. You can trust and depend on each other. We talk about anything: fears, goals, happy times.

I would take the money, because no money = no honey women want a good provider there is a lot more to life than just being in love with a woman, love fades away. to survive and live a good life you need money. women are just like fish in the sea, you can always find another, especially if you have the money.

Its a much more rare occurance when love buys you a gun. [:D]

IMHO A woman has the ability to make a man 4' tall or 10' tall!!!! If you two are a team there is no reason you can't have both!!! Are you considering children??? Would she be a good mother for them??? "Study the future mother in law it is a window into the future"!!!! Good luck Big

Money can't buy happiness, but it does offer a greater selection of miseries. Hey, thanks--I just found my new sig line for this month!

Money. The poor but happy thing just happens in the movies. Actually, I don't think it even happens in the movies these days; probably because nobody is buying that crap.

I'll take the money and the job I love anyday thank you.

Love. Trust me. You can beg, borrow or steal anything that money gets you (assuming you have none) but you can't force real love. Wife & I are now both unemployed, me for over 18 months. We're looking at a worst-case scenario of 7 more months before we have to think about selling one of the cars and/or putting the house on the market. But we've got each other, we've been together through thick and thin since we were 16-17 years old and we're just as happy as when we had a 6-digit household income. Maybe Oslo's right & we're just poor-but-happy flukes [;)].

Both......One can't live without the other.

Al Pacino said, "First you get the money, then you get the power, and then you get the women." That is one school of thought. I would fall in the mushy middle. A certain income floor sure aviods a lot of misery. Money can't buy happiness, sure, but paying the bills counts for a lot. Get an education or learn a trade, and then get serious about a woman of your dreams in that order.

I have always lived by the motto of you can take a vacation from a shitty job, but you can't take a vacation from being poor. I think I would take the money.

Neither. How about God first? Then you get both...

Maybe so, but it could have just as easily been a rich guy who was lonely and miserable with only monetary possessions. Even with all the money you could want, you can still be very empty inside without the right person to enjoy it with. I disagree with the ones who say love fades away. True love only gets stronger, despite hardships. When I was married, whether we had money or not, we were always happy. Whether my husband was working and bringing in $1000 plus a week or unemployed, my feelings never changed and I certainly never thought of leaving him. When he became sick and we almost lost everything, I continued to take care of him until he died. When I took my vows, I took them seriously. So don't tell me this kind of love doesn't exist. Even though I have jokingly said that the next time I marry, it will be for money, I will never settle for anything less than what I had before.

6 "I the LORD do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed. 7 Ever since the time of your forefathers you have turned away from my decrees and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you," says the LORD Almighty. "But you ask, 'How are we to return?' 8 "Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. "But you ask, 'How do we rob you?' "In tithes and offerings. 9 You are under a curse-the whole nation of you-because you are robbing me. 10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. [I]TEST ME IN THIS[/I]," says the LORD Almighty, "AND SEE IF I WILL NOT THROW OPEN THE FLOODGATES OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT SO MUCH BLESSING THAT YOU WILL NOT HAVE ROOM ENOUGH FOR IT. 11 I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit," says the LORD Almighty. 12 "Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land," says the LORD Almighty.

from Malachi Chapter 3 This is an interesting passage from the Bible. God seems to be pretty specific in that challenge. Anyone take Him up on it?

ok I tried to simplify my situation on this to just money or love. ok i gotta give you the total run down in a short version. The woman i love and she truly loves me is in oregon with her family. im in florida with mine. here i have a great job, friends and family. she is in a very small town (12K population) in oregon. it is mostly agricultural. she wants me to move there for her and for us to get married and raise a family. the problem is that i probably know that i cant get a decent job there because my skills are in the technology side of business. she says that she will probably never leave this small town because her family is there and that she doesnt want to leave them. im in a tough place. leave everything that i have here to follow her to have a family and probably a less than desriable job and lower income or stay in florida with the people and job that i have in hopes of finding another woman like her. man life can throw you some serious curve balls. later lojack

I'm leaning toward picking woman over job. A good woman is hard to find. An employer can lay you off anytime.

Love is a temporary chemcial trick in your brain that your DNA plays on you so it can better replicate itself. Money is real. However - to answer the question, I'd pick the woman of my dreams, because the woman that I dream of is not only incredibly smart and beautiful, but also incredibly wealthy! [:D]
Link Posted: 6/1/2003 10:29:05 PM EDT
Lojack, if you two truly love each other that is a very special thing; go for it. Personal success and wealth are empty victories if you have no one to share them with - loneliness can haunt you in a way poverty never will. I have an enjoyable job that pays a comfortable salary, and I've had my share of academic successes. But at the end of the day, I still feel empty inside - and money and awards don't fill that gap. Perhaps it's just the sort of person that I am or the philosophy that I live by, but I find that success and money can be earned if you work at it hard enough. But as Frank said, you can't pick who you fall in love with and who falls in love with you. You might be able to screw it up if you try hard enough, but if it's not there in the first place no amount of effort will make it appear. Besides, I'm sure you'll find a niche suited to your talents. Probably not exactly the position you're currently in, but short of it being an amish community, they'll have a need for technologically-inclined individuals.

When I was in my 20's, my answer would have been love because I was always poor anyway, but I was getting laid on a regular basis and that's what I "thought" I needed AT THAT TIME... In my 30's, I had 3 kids and a decent job, but I was still broke (kids will do that to you). But, I was still a pussy hound.... So, I would have said love (or what I "thought" was love) AT THAT TIME... Now in my 40's, after many hard knocks and after being married 3 times (cheating wives), I am still poor and not really interested in love anymore. I can take it or leave it...I want toys now! So, now I would say money...But, I'll never have it so I guess I will make do with what I have and that's a pretty terriffic lady who puts up with my crap and some really good friends who I would kill or die for....(which I PRAY never comes up) [:|]
