Found this out on another message board…I saw a thread askin gfor feed back when dating wealthy men… seems a common complaint, was that though they were loaded…they would have the same vehicle for 20 years and not replace it …even though its still running.

And if they DO get a new car…it lacks all the amenities. Said that the Volvo and JEEP are their favorite choices (from her experiences)

She said it seems to be a universal behavior with men with money. lol

Sometimes you cannot tell whether their are homeless or rich.

One said a guy goes to the bank dressed down, but the tellers knows hes loaded…they flirt with him.

What is known as stealth rich and it seems a lot of single women hate this.

Never heard a woman complain about wealthy men having old cars in my life.

At my kids school there are a lot of people that flaunt the money they have. They always drive new cars, the kids drive nicer cars than most of the parents do at school. They have huge houses with all of the amenities, other things like ATVs and nice boats. But when you get to know them and see past the facade, you find that they are leveraged up to their eyeballs. They are in so much debt that they will never be able to pay it all off. I find these people to be very superficial, not in any way generous, very quick to judge, very crass and falsely superior, and seldom willing to volunteer for anything.

Then you find a select few that live modest lives. They are nice people. They drive normal cars that average 5-8 years old, they have a nice house, but modest by the standards set by the aforementioned group. They are friendly, kind, and generous with both their time and their money. Once you get to know these people, you find that they are some of the wealthiest people in town, vastly more wealthy than the aforementioned group. They typically have money put away for retirement and a good amount of savings. Though they dont spend their money on extraordinary comforts, they live well by most standards, and they are very generous with their money to both friends and strangers.

If I were a woman, which would I rather date? Definitely the second group described. They may not live as extravagantly, but they take care of themselves and their loved ones both now and in the future, they live full, happy lives, and they give back to the community and the less fortunate.

I drive a 2007 Ford with 155k miles on it and I am not getting anything newer until it dies completely, regardless of how much money I have in the bank..

Theres a partner at company who drives a 2005 toyota pickup with over 200k miles on it. Hes a millionaire.

These women sound like gold digging w. hores.

I know a very wealthy guy who drives an old pickup literally with pieces hanging off. Hes married and his wife dresses one step up from bag lady. So they are compatible, and thats what seems to be important. The only single woman whod be bothered by a guy not flaunting his wealth is a woman whos looking for gold, not the guy.

The reason people build wealth is because they make smart choices with their money… driving an older car.

If they went out and acted like lottery winners – they wouldnt be wealthy for long.

I agree with KS – these women sound like empty headed gold diggers.

Some people flaunt wealth some dont. You can spend $$$$ on cars or drive your old favorites. I dont see this as a disadvantage to dating a wealthy man. Unless these women are gold diggers and wanting to show off to their friends that they are with a wealthy man………….

@wytchinghours: Yeah, thats probably what it is.

Man or woman….if you are fortunate enough to have way more money that most of the population, then you have to spend it on something, rather than hoarding it. I dont mind a rich person that drives an old car, but what else is he/she spending his money on??

Does he travel a lot and grow his experiences & build memories with loved ones?

Does he lead a simple life, so he can donate more and improve others lives?

Does he invest in things that would make the world a better place for generations to come?

If he drives an old car, dresses like a bum and hoardes his money because he is a stingy geezer, then I dont care how rich he is! Its a shallow little life.

If you are fortunate enough to be wealthy, then the sole purpose of your life is NOT just to be happy and provide for your immediate family. You should be able to lead a life thats honorable, generous, compassionate…… live a life where youve not only lived well, but have also contributed back to the society!

No matter how much money your partner makes, things go more smoothly if you are compatible. What you value manifests itself in what you are willing to spend money on. We all have things that we balk at paying for and we all have things that we are happy to pay for.

However, Im sure there are rich guys out there that are just plain cheap. If they are so cheap that they could pass as homeless, theyre probably too eccentric for anyone.
