    I'd pick happiness. Money can only bring you so many material possessions, and you can easily lose it in an instant aswell if you're not careful with it.

    Happiness to me is in the form of being around my family, friends, doing what I love and hopefully finding a girlfriend in the near future

    What would you choose?

    Being rich helps with this.

    Happiness. I totally agree with you. Happiness is in the form of the company you keep! But going on that basis I suppose having a boyfriend would make one happier. So yeah! Totally 100% agree with your post.

    Obviously happy. But then again, if I were completely poor then I don't think I could be all that happy...

    Happy although being rich may help to achieve that it doesn't guarantee it.

    You're not doing a correct comparison. If you assume that you can lose money all of a sudden, you'll also need to consider the fact that it's even easier to lose happiness all of a sudden.

    Rich. Therefore I could make those around ne happy with my wealth and make a real difference to charities instead of selfishly choosing happiness for myself.

    But being financially stable (not rich) would probably be part of this

    With respect OP, the question is not very sensible. Why would you be miserable with money rather than happy with out; by definition if you are not happy with money then you would rather be poor with out and if you would rather have money, that would mean that you would be happy with it
