Honest Golddiggers

> Okay, I'm tired of beating around the bush. I'm a beautiful

> I'm not from New York. I'm looking to get married to a guy who makes at

> that a million a year is middle class in New York City, so I don't think

> Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives? Could

> -What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won't hurt my

> -Is there an age range I should be targeting (I'm 25)?

> - Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the upper east

> gorgeous girls in singles bars in the east village. What's the story

>
> - Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows - lawyer, investment

> - How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am looking for

> Please hold your insults - I'm putting myself out there in an honest

> THE ANSWER
> Dear Pers-431649184:
> I read your posting with great interest and have thought meaningfully
> about your dilemma. I offer the following analysis of your predicament.
> Firstly, I'm not wasting your time, I qualify as a guy who fits your
> bill; that is I make more than $500K per year. That said here's how I
> see it.
>
> Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is plain and simple a
> cr@ppy business deal. Here's why. Cutting through all the B.S., what you
> suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring
> my money. Fine, simple. But here's the rub, your looks will fade and my
> money will likely continue into perpetuity...in fact, it is very likely
> that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won't
> be getting any more beautiful!
>
> So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning
> asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, your depreciation
> accelerates! Let me explain, you're 25 now and will likely stay pretty
> hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in
> earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you!
>
> So in Wall Street terms, we would call you a trading position, not a buy
> and hold...hence the rub...marriage. It doesn't make good business sense
> to "buy you" (which is what you're asking) so I'd rather lease. In case
> you think I'm being cruel, I would say the following. If my money were
> to go away, so would you, so when your beauty fades I need an out. It's
> as simple as that. So a deal that makes sense is dating, not marriage.
>
> Separately, I was taught early in my career about efficient markets. So,
> I wonder why a girl as "articulate, classy and spectacularly beautiful"
> as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to
> believe that if you are as gorgeous as you say you are that the $500K
> hasn't found you, if not only for a tryout.
>
> By the way, you could always find a way to make your own money and then
> we wouldn't need to have this difficult conversation.
>
> With all that said, I must say you're going about it the right way.
> Classic "pump and dump."
> I hope this is helpful, and if you want to enter into some sort of
> lease, let me know.
