    I don't care about money, if a person is hardworking thats all that really matters.

    I agree.

    When the time comes to discuss alimony, a man wants the woman to be earning more than him.

    Thats why prenups are a must.

    Hi John Doe,

    I'll admit that a woman with money makes me a tad uncomfortable. It has nothing to do with her, but it makes me feel inadequate somehow.

    I applaud your honesty and self-awareness. A lot of men feel the need to be the provider and protector of women. That's nothing to be ashamed of, as long as your actions are consistent with your values - i.e. you don't date a wealthy woman and make her life miserable because of your self-perceived inadequacy.

    Hi atypical,

    How old are you and how old are the men you know? I had a theory that younger men would be more comfortable with an affluent woman than older men.

    I find myself changing more every day. I've yet to determine what I value, and I'm still rooting things out that were based on values I no longer hold. That tends to make me a handful for any person. I think it's a trait of leaving an organization like the jw's. Actually, this is exactly why I've chose to remain single as long as I have. However, I do retain one trait that I think will outlast the sum of my personality--I don't quit and I am successful at most anything I put my efforts into. Cautious and thoroughly analytical, I really don't think I would make anyone miserable. But you have to consider the source on that statement. ;-)
