The answer to the latter I in fact don't know, probably because despite all the experience and an enviable capacity of assessment of people's characters I've never, honestly never actually met a woman about whom I believed or later got the impression that she's after a person's money. In fact, I believe that the so-called materialism in girls and later women's incredibly overrated. We must first understand the two mechanisms, which completely innocently, but for the overwhelming superficial people help create the impression that women women are materialistic. The first mechanism's formed by the fact, that women by nature like smart, capable, charismatic and successful men with a lot of energy. And like it or not, those men often times also have money. The second mechanism is the first's ancestor. It's a biologically conditioned pre-instinct which compels a woman in making a male selection, and choose one that will be able to provide for it's eventual offspring. So, again, there is no direct connection to popular criticism. Of course there are, as everywhere, some exceptions, who would even offer services to a zoo's orangutan for a pearl necklace. However, the latter would impaire the theory, not to mention it's uninteresting and besides the point anyways. I'd also like to point out, that the "she's crazy for him, but because he has money" is the most elegant excuse for all those lazy, incompetent male plants, who live their lives from falling out of uterine inertia. Those haven't put any extra energy in their lives. In fact, I wish them to hit the lottery. Maybe then their lives will be a tad more colorful. However, it would be short-lived and certainly without any success in the field of interesting women. Thoughts?
