    I'm afraid you've shown your naivety. Going to a Russell Group is not impressive in itself. You're going to have to bring a lot more to the table than that. If you manage a good classification alongside ECs and relevant work experience even then that just makes you competitive, not amazing. This isn't a knock, a dose of reality will help you. Arrogance will set you up for a rude awakening.

    You're hitting your early 30s, want to get married and want someone rich as well. You realise you're in decline, he's reaching peak and you think you can command high value men? You've missed your chance, you should have been shagging them in your twenties. Find someone, don't be picky and don't be alone, it'll be a tough life for you if you stay single
    Haha, I have looks on my side. I still look early 20s and girls who are much younger than me look so much older than I do.

    That said, I'm really attracted to guys in their late 30s and early 40s, I might find a gem there

    I got loads of experience and interpersonal skills. Do you feel the need to judge me on the spot..do yu even know me personally and my achievements? You're just great at slaying anything you cannot stand. Your lack of maturity please keep your bigoted opinions to yourself

    Does money matter in relationships? Life in the UK can be expensive and from a capitalist point would be beneficial to have a rich boyfriend?
    A relationship with a rich boyfriend, fine and dandy. But what would you do, if the rich boyfriend will terminate a relationship with you to come together with another girl?

    Not to me it doesn't. I never want to rely on a man for money, I'm a grown woman I can and should take care of myself and it is selfish and sexist for me to expect a man to pay for me purely on the basis that he has a penis.
    'Money' qua self-sufficiency is extremely important in relationships.

    Pretty sure I've never replied to any of your posts before... Firstly you're the one who suggested employers should be impressed by your university. If you really have all that then that's what you'd be boasting about, not simply going to Uni of Liverpool. Do you know what bigoted means? Have you replied to my post in haste by mistake? I don't care that much, just giving a misguided girl advice.

    I'd like to buy presents and stuff for my future partner and regularly treat them but I'm afraid that they might find it patronising, that I'm doing this because I think women don't have enough money or something.

    You're more than welcome to regularly treat me, haha . I think any guy would appreciate it, even with money - who doesn't appreciate free gifts and treats?!

    Not only in relationships. Money is an important aspect in almost things of our life.

    You mean girl, right?

    I think they would appreciate it but also a chance that they take it the wrong way.

    Yeah, sorry! But it applies to both anyway!

    I just read a couple of posts and it's staggering at how the poor of TSR think they need money to do cultured things, you can go to museums, art galleries, opera and ballet as well as the theater for not a lot and in the case of the former two, free. What will cost you money is travel to other countries and still, you can do it on the cheap and get the experience that someone paying £6,000+/pp will on £500/pp.

    The main reason people need money is for socialising, that costs a lot of money but if you want to experience new cultures, or do arty things or learn history etc, it'll be a pittance, socialising though will cost a bomb, there was an estimate recently that to spend your time in high society in London, Dubai and New York you need roughly £5,000/month just for expenses, that doesn't include clothing, food or rent/utilities.

    It's rare that any one here on TSR can afford that, hell I struggle to splash out when required although in fairness with a business, job and uni to do, I'd rather do them than socialise :lol:
    Sorry, don't think so. Socializing is fairly cheap - which is why most people of all income levels around the world can do it.

    Usually free to walk into a pub, most drinks/food can be had on the cheap and it doesn't really cost to invite people round to each other's place:

    Contrast that with the cost of a track day at Silverstone, hiking gear for the Dolomites, off-road driving through Namibia, drag racing hire cars in the early hours in Tokyo, wine tasting in Tuscany etc. With all those you have flights and accommodation to cover too.

    Chavs are getting Asbos daily for beating up their girlfriends.

    A man being poor of living in a council estate won't mean he will magically treat you right.

    Anyone with exposure to the underclass will have you know that 'poor' men can hit, abuse, cheat and disrespect you just as much as a rich man. There is so much abuse and domestic violence in poor households it's a joke.

    A man being intelligent enough to get a high paying job doesn't automatically make him disrespectful.

    We need to stop glamourising poverty and poorer men as Angels......
    Erm, I never read her comment as "glamourising poverty". I think we all know there are bad characters of every class/income level, and the same for good characters. She's simply saying that it's better to go for personality over money if you want a meaningful relationship.

    I agree some people are living in delusion, yet one poster pointed it out perfectly there expecting equal pay but want their man to earn x5 more than them, Ridiculous!

    When I graduated in my early 20s, I was purely focussed on my career, didn't really give much thought to getting married.

    Speaking as a rational person hitting early 30s, I'd very much like to settle down now. My ideal partner has to be someone who earns a lot, at least 5 times what I earn. When I consider the future, there's no way I'd have a child and bring them up in poverty. However, I wouldn't give up my job if I did meet that ideal person.
    You know what they call women who only marry for money, "at least 5 times" over?

    This is the only problem with your views. Nothing wrong with wanting a partner who earns six figures, if your earning potential is similar. Wanting a partner who earns double your salary just because is silly though.
    It really is silly wanting double, but this ain't as bad as the other women who wants to settle down in 30's who want's x5 over:eek:

    I'd put it under well off, wealthy to me would be millions.
    Earning Millions or having a net worth, worth millions?

    Most of us will never have that much
