What is it about men and their money?

A guy once told me that he was advised by his mother to never give women money. It seems to be a way to suss out which women wanted him as a sponsor instead of a partner. If a man showed no desire to help a woman out financially, would that be a sign that he is smart or inconsiderate?

Women today generally prefer to hold their own financially. I don’t know a lot of women who have a salary requirement for the men that they date. I wonder if they would look to test a man to see if he would be a good provider, though. How important is being a provider to women?

Do you think men today use wealth to attract women?

Guys, what are your thoughts about your money and your confidence? Are the two related?

Oh the perfect boo for me,
Where are thou thee?
Is he where I cannot presently see?
Or is he simply fleeing me?
Scared him with this desperate energy?
Because thy biological clock ticks too loudly?
Guess alone is what it’ll have to be….just me

Yes ladies = NO. You still missing the point. We don’t need to ask him “baby, did I make your toes curl” or for him to ask the same of us. We validated ourselves in knowing we are good at our trade. As long as I believe it, I can put it down for you where you will come back for seconds…that’s a form of validation I can recognize….don’t need no words. :wink:

Sniff – Some folks have hormonal imbalance…or a bacterial infection where their pH is off balance. Too many improper bacteria in her ‘environment’.

Yeah, I know “trade” didn’t sound right.

Ok, we know when we have “SKILLZ”….(is that better)?

Exiled aka Sniffer Of All Things Funky – You don’t know when you not too fresh?

It’s stink folk walking around every day, over the entire world. We’ve talked about them on here.

And every person that does the do is not “Downey Fresh” every time.

Also, can be fresh as a daisy, but that doesn’t mean you can rock good!

Per today’s topic, if a lady comes back for seconds, how does he know it’s not just because he’s got money? She might have to hold her breath but feel his bank account is worth it! Wouldn’t be for me, but just sayin!

@Sniffer ~ I’m saying if I don’t “believe” in my skillz I can’t execute.

Same as any other job. If you don’t project that you know what you’re doing, you will soon get the pink slip.

You have to first believe before you go further….

Stank and having lost elasticity of the vaginal walls is not the same thing…..it can be, but that’s not the context in which the statement was made.

If dude rocks it rocks it rocks it All nite

Ur stuff is good

Even if he don’t compliment much

Well Sniffer, if there isn’t an encore, couldn’t that very well mean you got it right the first time and no do-over is needed? It’s kinda hard to fly in a hot air balloon when it’s depleted :lol:

Sometimes its a cultural thing, the stank. The different foods people eat. So to them & their own people, they don’t stink.

Lots of reasons having noting to do with bad odor can be why someone doesn’t want to come back for seconds.

Sometimes a one-night stand is just that – one night. Could be very memorable and magical, but still one.

But belief without validation is none

Empty words !

If ur neighbors don’t say none good about u
Well well

@Sniffer, you don’t always get compliments/flattery after doing the do….sometimes a slap on the buttocks while you’re walking into the bathrooms says it all (lol)…

Exiled – It could be him too, lacking. If he had performance issues he may be too embarrassed to try again.

You must be bored at work, cause really this is a moot conversation, but I’m playing along!LOL!!!

@Randyt ~ do you believe you can hear lust/longing in a phone call when the person is trying to act like they’re not lusting after you (LOLOL)? Do you believe you can see it in their eyes when they thinking they’re acting all nonchalant. I’m cracking up….

I am a young woman who came from a family of money. My father had always been a fantastic provider, so whenever my parents argued, he always used this as a fighting point. In turn, whenever I wanted to do something, wear something, or speak out against something that my mother didn’t agree with, she would threaten to withhold the luxuries to which I had grown accustomed.

A week before graduating college (which was paid by a full academic scholarship), I moved to New York and became completely financially independent. Now 24-years-old, I still have never dated a man who makes more than me. I’m not sure if I ever will. It isn’t something I avoid intentionally, but perhaps a defense mechanism.
