PONDERING IF MONEY CAN BUY HAPPINESS (OR AT LEAST LOVE)

Greetings from the mountain top…

On the rare occasion when The Guru accepts a male student (The Guru plays for only one team and is a very loyal team member…unless, of course, the male student has a very hot girlfriend or a sister who is open to taking handcuffs and…but I digress) the inevitable question arises: Are women drawn to wealth?

Sorry brothers (and sisters), but the overwhelming evidence is a re$ounding YE$$$$$.

A 2009 study, “Effect of manipulated prestige-car ownership on both sex attractiveness ratings”, from Br J Psychol. 2010 Feb;101(Pt 1):69-80. Epub 2009 Mar 19 showed that male models in a Bentley were rated as $ignificantly more attractive as compared to those in a Ford Fiesta. (In a related, equally unsurprising study it was found that women were more attracted to men who shower daily, who don’t live with their mother, and those who can engage in cunnilingus longer than 20 seconds)

As Mae West once said, “I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor. Believe me rich is better.”

Why do attractive women tend to date wealthy men? Because they can. Of course, women need to also keep in mind that wealthy men tend to date $ignificantly younger women. Why? Because they can.

In matters of the heart, or the libido, it seems that you can buy (or perhaps lease with an option to purchase) love.

Peace out ya money hungry freaks

    I think that it could be called lust or love, since it is rare in this day and age for either one to last for any significant length of time. You didn’t toss in the “research” about how money and goods are about showing a woman she can be provided for despite the fact that women say that they want to provide for themselves. Would that be called genetic or greedy yearnings? 🙂

    Which means one day the Earth will be populated by people who look like wizened old men with big boobs on drugs.
