i honestly don't see a problem here. he went after her because she was attractive. everyone has preferences they want in a relationship. some people want an attractive person, some want a financially stable person.

The difference between the two:

Everyone has an idea of what they want their children to be like and they tend to look for a potential mate with those qualities. This means the relationship is about a connection for your future offspring which means it's a natural one. People tend to like good looking mates because they want their children to be good looking.

Liking someone for their money is just purely for their money. You don't actually like a quality about them.

Is having money a quality in a way though?
Poor, rich, etc.. those are qualities of your life, maybe not of YOU personally but maybe she's attracted to that trait?

Means you are looking for a provider in a mate.

Thats like implying that you are not capable of providing for yourself.

You read too much into that.

All I did was point out that someone who is looking for money in a partner wants a provider in their life......it's kind of an obvious observation.

He just sort of gave reasons why someone would want someone who is attractive and then just kinda blew the other side off like "they just want money" like there's no reason behind it. Not to say that it's a good thing to want someone's resources over them as a person, but just putting my two cents in.

No. Anyone who doesn't want someone, but then wants someone after knowing they have money is in it for the wrong reasons. It's not because she wanted a "provider".She obviously wasn't attracted to him, and only wanted him for money. Thats completely different than liking someone and then being happy that they can provide. She just wanted to use him and probably date someone she actually liked behind his back. There is a reason behind it by the way. Some people are just greedy, terrible wastes of oxygen. Thats why.

I never said she wanted him for him and liked that he could provide on the side. She ONLY wanted him to be a provider. I never said she was attracted to him as a person. I don't think you read anything I typed, and that you just have an idea in your head and are just rolling with that.

She doesn't like the guy. Then finds out he has money. Wants him because he has money, and that money will provide for her greatly. She realises she will never want or need for anything with him so then she agrees to go on a date. That was the natural thought process that I was pointing out that was behind her actions.

Now I AM NOT saying I think she's great for being that way.

Umm ok so you're just explaining that shes terrible. ok. I think we all already knew that. If you ONLY want someone as a provider then you don't know how relationships work. Done.
User avatar #42 to #41 - flemsdfer ONLINE (10/21/2013) [-]
Yes, but I am just going a little further in as to why she, and people like her seem hardwired to be greedy, terrible, people.

I don't agree.

I don't think that humans have the need for material goods/value in their instincts so it doesn't actually come in to being a quality in a mate.

Naturally it's better to have lots of money and know your children are going to do well but people aren't likely to mate through instinct with someone just because they're rich. It's for personal gain more than anything.

It's just what I think.

Your first comment I can get behind, but this is wrong.

I didn't explain myself very well there.

After a rethink, I'll have another go.

Right, humans don't have the want for "WEALTH" in their instincts but I agree they do have the want to be provided for. Owning material goods and surviving comfortably are two different things in my books but that might just be how I see them. It may blend into two for some people.

I don't think it's instincts to want a partner based on how much value they have/you could get but yes people want to be provided for.

Does that make more sense?

I do make myself sound like a plum sometimes.

It's interesting reading the replies of everyone

and people are all about personal gain. Always have been. It's really been a natural part of human life all throughout history.
