At least she's honest...

THIS APPEARED ON CRAIGSLIST
>> What am I doing wrong?
>>
>>
>> Okay, I'm tired of beating around the bush. I'm a beautiful
>> (spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I'm articulate and classy.
>> I'm not from New York. I'm looking to get married to a guy who makes at
>> least half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind
>> that a million a year is middle class in New York City, so I don't think
>> I'm overreaching at all.
>>
>> Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives? Could
>> you send me some tips? I dated a business man who makes average around
>> 200 - 250. But that's where I seem to hit a roadblock. 250,000 won't get
>> me to central park west. I know a woman in my yoga class who was married
>> to an investment banker and lives in Tribeca, and she's not as pretty as
>> I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right? How do I
>> get to her level?
>>
>> Here are my questions specifically:
>>
>> - Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me specifics- bars,
>> restaurants, gyms
>>
>> -What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won't hurt my
>> feelings
>>
>> -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
>> side so plain? I've seen really 'plain jane' boring types who have
>> nothing to offer married to incredibly wealthy guys. I've seen drop dead
>> gorgeous girls in singles bars in the east village. What's the story
>> there?
>>
>> - Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows - lawyer, investment
>> banker, doctor. How much do those guys really make? And where do they
>> hang out? Where do the hedge fund guys hang out?
>>
>> - How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am looking for
>> MARRIAGE ONLY
>>
>> Please hold your insults - I'm putting myself out there in an honest
>> way. Most beautiful women are superficial; at least I'm being up front
>> about it. I wouldn't be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn't
>> able to match them - in looks, culture, sophistication, and keeping a
>> nice home and hearth.
>>
>> * it's NOT ok to contact this poster with
>> services or
>> other commercial interests

>> 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.
>>

Maybe she should have asked Jim for advice, first.

Blatant gold diggers never seem to get what they need. What they need they never seem to understand.
