Sorry for being so late getting back, but with this winter storm we are having we have been threatened with power outages all day so I shut my computer down so as not to take the chance of it going off and coming on with the power surges and brown outs.
Okay for whoever said I started this thread about Glo, I didn't start the thread at all. I just asked the question about the 4th or 5th post down.
My question was would you "look" for a man who was rich or poor. Most of the answers were about how you would only love someone who was in love with you, or that respected you, or that you could repect and if there was true love money would not matter, and all of those are answers were great, but not exactly what I asked.
The reason I asked this was all the talk about who has been a gold digger and who hasn't reminded me of something that my younger sister and I talked about a few years ago. She absolutely has a knack for picking the worst men possible to go out with. I say pick cause if a man asks you out you have the choice to say yes or no, so if you say yes then you kind of picked him to go out with.
She called me one day and asked me why couldn't seem to have the things her friends had. A good husband, a little security and so on. My answer to her was "You need to set your sites a little higher". As we talked more, I realized the reason she went out with these slugs was she didn't have a whole lot of self worth, so in turn did not feel worthy to even be interested in a man who was of a higher income bracket than her. In other words, she was settling, and you get exactly what you are willing to settle for.
Now I have the best husband in the whold world (no bias here :) ) and we have been married a little over 33 years. But if anything should ever happen to him, God Forbid, I would have no qualms what so ever holding out for someone who could make my golden years, as they say, as comfortable as possible. I have heard it said before, it is just as easy to love a rich man as it is to love a poor man.
So now you all probably think of me as the resident gold digger, but at least I am honest about it :-) :-) :-)
