We’re all broke. Yaaay! According to The New York Times, the number of Americans living below the official poverty line is now 46.2 million. This is the highest it’s been in the last 52 years. And while all these people are struggling to keep their heads above water, a few TootIt readers recently overcame economic adversity without much effort. Margaret got pregnant by her rich Orthodontist, and young Sally is moving to Orange County with her rich senior citizen boyfriend – who she’s known for about two heart attacks and a broken hip.
Sure it’s easy to write them off as gold diggers, but let’s not rush to judgment. And don’t forget, men are still getting paid more than women. In 2010, the median weekly salary of full-time working women was $669, compared to $824 for men. With statistics like that, is it such a crime to patronize the cock of a millionaire or “accidentally” miss a few pills?
Does everyone believe these are matches made in heaven? Maybe not. But, perhaps these ladies are onto something. Guys with money usually have power and isn’t power attractive? Guys with money are usually smart—except for pro athletes or lotto winners—and isn’t a smart guy easier to be around than a moron? Most guys with money are fairly classy which means they have manners, look good and will treat you kindly. And never-mind going back to your 9-to-5 job anymore.
Upon closer inspection, however, Margaret’s and Sally’s lifestyle might be unappealing to a modern American woman. Margaret’s doctor can barely stay awake long enough to say “tonight baby, I’m going to spank… Zzz (he falls asleep)”. As for Sally, she recently reported that the “deal” with her rich boyfriend had been finalized. What deal? The move into her new boyfriend’s mansion, or did they negotiate the ratio of blow jobs to loads of laundry?
Every woman has to decide what’s important to her. Financial security is undoubtedly important, but closing that relationship “deal” may come with a higher price than you think. You might find it’s a better bargain to keep your younger, broke bloke – and your freedom. Just make him give you an extra foot rub after a long day.
