1. “If they have a lot of money, they probably did something to get that money, and motivation is attractive. When a guy works for what he has, it’s hot, and I like that.” —Anita, 24

2. “I would never date someone for the amount of money they have, but if a guy has a lot of it, it’s definitely a plus.” —Rachael, 23

3. “Okay, well let’s think about this. We’re in our twenties, and what do we do on the weekends? We go out. If a guy can’t afford to buy me a drink, then it’s probably going to be awkward when I have an empty glass in my hand and a bartender asking if I’d like another. So yes, money matters to some extent.” —JoAnna, 25

4. “Money buys men nice things. Cars, luxury apartments, nice furniture, a sexy wardrobe, it’s all extremely appealing especially to women, but I think what really matters is who he is with no money at all. If I’m dating a guy who has a lot of money I ask myself that question. Do I only like him because of what he has and not because of who he is?” —Vanessa, 27

5. “No offense, but I don’t want to date a guy who’s broke. I already don’t have enough money as it is, so I definitely can’t be buying him dinner.” —Cindy, 24

6. “I’m at that age now where I can’t help but think about marriage potential. When I start seeing someone I definitely take his profession into consideration, and with that profession comes his salary. I want a guy who will be able to take care of me.” —Elina, 26

7. “It’s hard enough to find a descent guy out there, so if I find one and his bank account balance is below average, I’m not going to let it be a deal breaker. Money is not the most important thing on my priority list. Give me a guy who is kind, caring, and can make me laugh…And preferably good in bed, and I am a happy woman.” —Laura, 27

8. “I think it all has to do with how he earned the money. If he’s living off of Mommy and Daddy’s salary, no thank you. I don’t care if your dad is a heart surgeon and your mom is a psychiatrist, if you have no ambition to do anything for yourself, I’m not interested.” —Ella, 25

9. “I don’t need a man to support me, I can do it myself. I need a man for other reasons, and money is not one of them.” —Kate, 26

10. “I like a man who has money but isn’t boastful about it. I don’t want a show off, but stability is nice. You don’t need to tell me that your jeans cost 600 dollars, but if you want to buy me a pair that cost that much, I’m totally fine with it.” —Heather, 24

11. “There is nothing worse than a guy who thinks he can buy my affection. That Chanel bag is not going to convince me to sleep with you. This is not Pretty Woman and I am not Julia Roberts.” —Amanda, 24

12. “Money is such an insignificant way to judge a partner. I’m looking for someone to share my life with, and someone that would stick around if there was nothing left, money included. When money is gone, you should still have love.” —Caylee, 25

13. “I am definitely a girl who appreciates the finer things, but when it comes to dating, I don’t need a man to give me that. Yes, I love dinner at a fancy restaurant, and can appreciate a gifted piece of jewelry, but I think good chemistry can give you that same satisfaction no matter how much money they have.” —Gia, 23

14. “Of course life is more comfortable with money, but as long as he’s not lazy and indifferent, I don’t care how much money he has. Money can’t buy him passion.” —Julia, 26

15. “I think that money most of the time gives guys confidence, and that confidence is often attractive, but when he’s a rich, cocky, jerk, that is not attractive, at all. —Brittany, 26

16. “If he has a nice car, it’s a total turn on. If he picks me up and his front mirror has duct tape on it, that’s not exactly getting me in the mood.” —Mollie, 24

17. “I don’t think money is that important. I think if he loves what he does, and is good at it, then that’s all that matters. Well, and if he loves you, that’s important too.” —Denise, 25 TC mark
