No, we just don't want to earn / own more than our partners. Experience tells us that men always end up resenting this, feeling a bit superfluous. He should also be smarter and know how to make fire in the woods. ...

...My situation is thatI am "poor" now but inherit at some hopefully distant point, so I don't worry about being looked after when I'm old but definitely am interested in someone who doesn't think twice about buying dinner now. I belong in the "doesn't want a relationship" crowd of Zurich and I think it's because a lot of us have had really bad experiences and are simply not prepared to be vulnerable again.
Blimey, there's a story. Feminism and self respect outta the window, then, in return for steak and fries at a fancy restaurant? Better work on the make up and bedside techniques, until a younger, hotter model comes his way.

It is possible to enjoy mushrooms on toast in a shared appartment wearing clothes from Migros and be head over heels in love.

I could never, ever, ever date a woman dumber than me, and I'm dumb as a rock. It would be more frustrating dealing with limited consciousness than limited finances, fo'sho.

I saw the 1930's film Babyface the other night; it's still as relevent to greedy young women using their allure to climb a career / social ladder 'wrong by wrong' today as it was back then. Chicks looking for an easy meal ticket as a path to happiness ought to consider, if they're smart enough.

Here's some Nietzsche for yer pipe:

Well, since that also happens when you are in a meaningful relationship and actually care about the guy, I'd rather ride youth for as long as I can and look back on some very fine dining.

No, just very, very realistic. If all that happens is that you get disposed of for someone else, then you might as well a) be the one who disposes and / or b) the someone else.

Thank you. Others (mainly men) promise the stars and talk about being soulmates to make themselves feel good and then disappear from one day to the next. It's happened to me and to my friends and it's dreadful how destructive it is. Me, I tell them that I'm a stray kitty that will turn up when it wants to be fed and can't be relied on for anything more. And I know other girls who have taken the same approach.

How could anyone focus on love if she had to wear cloths from MIGROS?!?!?

That's why I put my energy in making my own carrier and making my own money rather than hunt a guy with a big wallet. Don't really care how much the guy makes as long as I can buy the cloths I want for my money.

Money don't buy you happiness, but I sure wear a bigger smile when I know I'm with style.

I find that a very sad way to view the world of dating and relationships in, even more so that your own personal bad experiences have made you think it's some sort of bulletproof logic.

I know I'm too short, and I know that she doesn't want that.

Do I jab at her because of that? sure. Am I saying/implying she is shallow? no.

She clearly stated she doesn't like midgets (like us).

Also, Don't hate the player, hate the game.

you cramping my style dawg...

It works for me. At least I'm not chasing some dream only to wake up one day in a nightmare.

If it works for you then fine, hourses for courses, I just think it's (in my own opinion) unfortunate to view things in that way. Not all men and women are out to screw someone over, and many do go into relationships with the best of intentions regardless of the consequences... and I just can't imagine how depressing it would be to view them as over before they had even started. The only outcome I can see is being old and lonely.

Again, this is not a reason to enter into a relationship. If you feel lonely, get a dog.
