Half of me would ignore her, the other half would meet her. I would gather a huge group of people -- improv actors if necessary -- have them fill the room, and then escalate the meeting into a huge scene in which the entire crowd vociferously turned on her. I would speak loud enough for everyone to hear what this whore was doing and then everyone would gradually get drawn in until it was the biggest humiliation of her life. I would pay these people if necessary, but I bet I could get people to do it for free. Of course the entire thing would get uploaded to YouTube and this woman would've one the face of ow's everywhere. [ Reply | More ]

yeah. just unplug. or if you want, give cash for birth control. they'll figure it out. you subsidize, you'll get more of what you don't want. that's why monaco is so rich and safe. they "subsidize" the rich so the rich go there. we subsidize the poor so the poor proliferate here. [ Reply | More ]

Giving cash for BC I can agree with. Other than that you are a nutty cunt. Please pack your bags, Monaco is waiting. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] s/o - would you date someone who had been married for 25 years? And who is 15 years older? (And just to throw this clincher in….) would it change things if you really needed financial support? 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I would think being married for 25 years was a positive. Better than married 5x in 25 years [ Reply | More ]

sweetie, i'd do any number of things if i were desperate broke. you never want to be desperately broke. but if not desperately broke, i'd hesitate on 15 years, but then i haven't been in the dating market since my late 20s. i'd be ok with married, maybe. but would be wary of stepchildren. but maybe they're all grown by 25 years. maybe he's also mellowed out.

Im just tired of dating - and I am getting old, too! I've been divorced for 6 years (not my choice) and I am tired of telling my same story. I met someone who is really responsible, successful, and (yes) older by 15 years. His kids are adults. Mine are middle schoolers. I am not rich and I struggle with my income because it's a lot to manage two kids on what i have to work with. I just don't know how much longer I can do this. I' starting to feel like I "dont have the fight" in me anymore…..would love any advice [ Reply | More ]

listen. women used to get married to money ALL THE TIME. marriage has always been an economic contract. is the guy nice? don't marry an asshole unless you are desperately broke. but if he's nice and there are no teenage stepchildren, i'd give it a serious go i hated dating, too. that's why i got married. i can't imagine being financially stressed. that's a horrible way to live. just one day at a time. see if he's a nice guy. then go from there. you might have to sign a prenup, though, b/c his kids might get pissed. but that shold be ok as long as he's willing to take care of you until you die. mil married fil who was 19 years older. she was a bit of a no-nonsense kind of woman but she was very happy. 15 years isn't a deal breaker. good luck.

No, he's not rich - but I am certain he makes 4x what I make. I work really hard. I just picked a helping profession and I love it so much - but I struggle mightily. [ Reply | More ]

How do you know if he is generous? I have seen guys like this who are really cheap and don't want to spend their money on anyone [ Reply | More ]

LOL. There is a huge amount of distance between meeting someone and marrying someone. Go on your first date and see what happens. I can smell your desperation from here. [ Reply | More ]

I think it's really pathetic that you can't earn your own money. [ Reply | More ]

Clearly you don't enough by UB standards, as you are polling UB on whether you should steel yourself to date a man 15 years older because you need the money. [ Reply | More ]

You brought in the part about needing financial support all by yourself. So clearly you don't think you earn enough. Also, you've "met someone", he's not a boyfriend yet, and you're already envisioning him supporting you? Oy. [ Reply | More ]

This could be written by someone I know, except her child is in elementary and he IS rich. She already quit her job and his divorce isn't even final! You don't sound like her. [ Reply | More ]

They're engaged. It's not clear to me if she was the OW, but I think it is quite possible. [ Reply | More ]
