+1. If she said that, she's not wrong, she's honest.

To spy on other people maybe. Or just take his name before someone else could. I've known people who had "empty profiles" who were just internet paranoid, but also paranoid about not being on the internet. Also, you don't have to be friends with someone to see a LOT of their profile pictures. That's how the mainstream media gets a lot of photos. You have to know FB to do your privacy settings correctly, and a lot of people don't bother. [ Reply | More ]

This happened to me. Travel. Same industry. Said he was single. I am ashamed to say, when I found out, don't remember how, I stayed for the sex. Without telling me, the idiot left his wife and asked me to marry him. I LOL before I caught myself. I told him I would NEVER considering marrying a lying, cheating, POS like him. The look on his face was priceless. And, the wife wouldn't take him back. He ended up divorced, and later married an airline stewardess with ginormous breasts. So fitting. Lost track of him when I left industry. You can either stay for the sex, or not. I'm ashamed to say I enjoyed it. Flying around, holing up in hotels and ordering room service, and having hot, dirty sex. It was fun. [ Reply | More ]

A lot of "old money" families like to pretend it's tacky to spend any money, but really, they just don't have much money left to spend. [ Reply | More ]

This is the same where I live in Marin county. I'm in belvedere Tiburon, and there is definitely old money yacht club preppies who are pretty simple and not very flashy...then the new money finance people who join these clubs in head to toe designer everything and sporting huge diamond rings, flashy sports cars etc. [ Reply | More ]

Well, there are family farms in the midwest that have been handed down through generations, and they worry every year about losing them. On the other hand, you could have even a modest home in Point O'Woods that has gone down generations in a family trust. Or you have Walker's Point, Kykuit, or the Liseter Hall estate (before it was torn down) etc. [ Reply | More ]

He's really not though. This is why is has that HUUUGGGEEEE chip on his shoulder. He's just a guy from Queens. If you want further proof, look at who his kids married. Not one of them married into an old school WASP family. Two of them opted out of the Old School Money Race by marring monied Jews.

I was always impressed as a child by the gold charm bracelets that my grandmother and great aunt had--filled with charms from all the places they had traveled. They also always served drinks (martinis and white wine), fancy cheese, and crackers before dinner and had live-in help. And they collected Hiroshiges, which they either bought at auction or in Japan. I don't know if those are major signals, but that's how I saw it growing up. [ Reply | More ]
