... a joke for a *yawn* boring day?

  1. if this is inappropiate here, Mod - please move the thread then.

    Just a thought - so many brilliant humourous ladies here with "rich SOs" - hence we will be able to appreciate this...

    A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum, Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

    I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here. I'm 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York . My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you? Among those I've dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit. If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.

    I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:
    Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)

    Which age group should I target?

    Why most wives of the riches is only average-looking? I've met a few girls who doesn't have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys

    How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

    Ms. Pretty

    Here's a reply from a Wall Street Financial guy:

    Dear Ms. Pretty,

    I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyze your situation as a professional investor. My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I'm not wasting time here.

    From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain. Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of "beauty" and "money": Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square. However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worried 10 years later.

    By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a "trading position". If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or "leased". Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you.

    I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income. This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

    Hope this reply helps. If you are interested in "leasing" services, do contact me.

  3. ... it all means - class & style is important
    best - if the ladies can earn their own $, isn't it?

    in many cases, SOs or DHs gifts are meaningful even though we can or cannot afford it

    ... i hope this joke didn't rub in the wrong way...
  4. Thank you gem, great read:tup:. I just read the whole thing to my husband and a) He said the girl was right about giving it a straight shot and b) He loved the guy's answer (naturally heh) about his appreciation asset and her depreciation asset:p. Bugger :roflmfao:
  5. This has cracked me up laughing!
    Every week I go to Kensington in London, I generally sit outside cafe nero after working, and on way to Paddington Station for a cappuccino, and Yes, cig.

    I watch all the pretty girls, with mobile phones attached to there ears, ( dont know how they do that with huge hoop earing's) " strutting along the high street, looking into cafés, shops, bars, etc, and also into the fast high performance cars driving along ( well stationary actually stuck in traffic)

    I was told they cruise , and they are talking to their friends who are the other side of the street, looking for rich men.

    I love the answer from the broker. but some men are so frightened of pretty , attractive independent intelligent women , they seem to run a mile.

    Not that I am one of them.

    Thanks for this its made me giggle this morning
  6. Oh! What a scene!
    Perhaps they are waiting for Trump-alike or russian billionaire to stop them at their tracks.

    Aminamina, yeah .. i drive a boring japanese sedan car (depreciating asset) versus investing in H bags (appreciating assets)!!!
  7. :lol:...Still, there are MANY "rich fools" as our broker calls them , who DO marry pretty young ladies.....then I suppose, when they get older and loose their looks, they chuck them out and find themselves a younger one!!! (Mr. Abramovich....);)LOL!
  8. :push: and that is da truth :lol:

    i find that article hillarious
  9. ... then they do those pre-nupts or multi-millions divorce cases. ... and the rich fools will have decreasing assets! Unless they increase their wealth real fast!
  10. This was a hilarious read--thank you for posting!! I loved his reply.
  11. Very funny, Gem!

  12. Mrs A is so pretty, so are the children, Its a real shame they broke up, he adores his children.

    But yes there are lots of married rich men, that divorce there wives after they have produced there sons / daughters etc. to go of with young bits of fluff.
    To make the man feel better about himself ,which long term I dont think it will make him any happier. but thats men for you! ( thank god there are some amazing gorgeous intelligent men and there are more of these than the middle aged insecure rich ones)

    Just my thoughts, ( and experience lol)
  13. He he. I would embrace being "chucked out" the way Mrs. Abramovich has ;) ($$$$$$$$$). Now she can get herself brand new, young and gorgeous boy toy without all the headache.
    :welcome:to her lawyer :tup:

  14. ITA!!....I've only come accross the middle aged insecure....poor ones!:rolleyes:

  15. True, its just the children are so lovely , I hope it does not affect them too much
    Mrs A is a real stunner!
