This is from craigslist.
THE QUESTION: What am I doing wrong?

Okay, I`m tired of beating around the bush. I`m a beautiful
(spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I`m articulate and classy. I`m not
from New York . I`m looking to get married to a guy who makes at least
half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind that a
million a year is middle class in New York City , so I don`t think I`m
overreaching at all.

Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives?
Could you send me some tips? I dated a business man who makes average
around 200 - 250. But that`s where I seem to hit a roadblock. 250,000 won`t
get me to central park west. I know a woman in my yoga class who was
married to an investment banker and lives in Tribeca, and she`s not as
pretty as I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right?
How do I get to her level?

Here are my questions specifically:
-Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me specifics- bars,
restaurants, gyms
-What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won`t hurt my
-Is there an age range I should be targeting (I`m 25)?
- Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the upper east
side so plain? I`ve seen really `plain jane` boring types who have
nothing to offer married to incredibly wealthy guys. I`ve seen drop dead
gorgeous girls in singles bars in the east village. What`s the story
- Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows - lawyer, investment
banker, doctor. How much do those guys really make? And where do they hang
out? Where do the hedge fund guys hang out?
- How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am looking for

Please hold your insults - I`m putting myself out there in an honest
way. Most beautiful women are superficial; at least I`m being up front
about it. I wouldn`t be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn`t
able to match them - in looks, culture, sophistication, and keeping a
nice home and hearth.

THE ANSWER: Dear Pers-431649184:

I read your posting with great interest and have thought meaningfully
about your dilemma. I offer the following analysis of your predicament.
Firstly, I`m not wasting your time, I qualify as a guy who fits your
bill; that is I make more than $500K per year. That said here`s how I see

Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is plain and simple
a crappy business deal. Here`s why. Cutting through all the B.S., what
you suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I
bring my money. Fine, simple. But here`s the rub, your looks will fade
and my money will likely continue into perpetuity...in fact, it is very
likely that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that
you won`t be getting any more beautiful!

So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning
asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, your depreciation
accelerates! Let me explain, you`re 25 now and will likely stay pretty hot for
the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in
earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you!

So in Wall Street terms, we would call you a trading position, not a
buy and hold...hence the rub...marriage. It doesn`t make good business
sense to "buy you" (which is what you`re asking) so I`d rather lease. In
case you think I`m being cruel, I would say the following. If my money
were to go away, so would you, so when your beauty fades I need an out.
It`s as simple as that. So a deal that makes sense is dating, not

Separately, I was taught early in my career about efficient markets.
So, I wonder why a girl as "articulate, classy and spectacularly
beautiful" as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to
believe that if you are as gorgeous as you say you are that the $500K
hasn`t found you, if not only for a tryout.

By the way, you could always find a way to make your own money and then
we wouldn`t need to have this difficult conversation. With all that
said, I must say you`re going about it the right way. Classic "pump and

I hope this is helpful, and if you want to enter into some sort of
lease, let me know.
