    Well...This story happend four years ago.I met a boy, who worked as a lawyer.He wanted to hang out with me, but i didn´t love him.We stayed just friends.
    The problem is my family and some friends of mine.My mom was so excited and wanted to set me up with him.She liked him very much(because of he was nice,smart-and the most important thing-he was full of money).She told me:He is a great catch!Use your head!You´ll be safe,satisfied and ...happy(?)!I made her so disappointed.Unfortunately-she saw him in TV a few days ago and now I must still litsten to her how stupid I am.Some friends of mine think the same...Can I ask you?Am I the last person who loves somebody not because of money and wealth but just for real and pure love?What would you do if you were in my place?

    to me love can't be measured with money...especialy that of the purest nature

    to some money can be happyness, but this is not me...and by the sounds of it it is not you either. you are not alone, especialy here....which could you without (or less of!)?

    I think you did the right thing....
    You followed your heart...
    People who get involved with someone just because of money will have a lonely road ahead of them..
    And your mom should know better....
    And she should also know that you are your own person and that you can make your own money and you dont need to live off of someone elses...

    You did the right thing. Your mum is the one who is wrong as she just sounds like a money grabbing bitch tbh. You don't pretend you love someone for their money. Don't listen to your mum and friends who say you’re stupid, ignore them as you did the right thing :).

    with money you can buy lots of things, go to nice places, get yourself new clothes whenever you want, you wont even have to work probably!!!

    ...but if having all this money means you're with the wrong person, I dont think it's worth that much.

    I'd rather be skint than unhappy. You did the right thing!

    Love cant be bought with money. tell your mum I said hi.

    When people involve the term money in love, it is hardly true love...you should always continue to follow your heart...because in my opinion no amount of money can make me love someone...only my heart and soul can love...so keep trusting that

    some days ago I saw a wonderful wall-painting...

    with a nativa american quote..

    "when all the trees will be cut down
    when all the river will be poisoned
    when all the air will smell of death

    then you will discover you cannot eat money"

    I think we should never base our love on money stuff.. it is ridiculous... our kisses search other sweet kisses... not coins

    Well babes... You got my vote -hug- You need to talk to your mom about this though and explain to her that you cant force yourself to love someone be it because of familly aproval or money. Love must flow naturally. Dont let your mother destroy your relationship with..... your mother.

    yeah, money is the least of things in the world....hell you can be the richest mother fucker on the block, but you can also be an asshole.....all i know is that these days true love has been lost and there arent many traditionaly moral folks anymore.

    No.... that is very cruel and all of that is your Mom's issues not YOURS!
    Yes make your OWN way and let your Mom go for some Therapy since she is hurting you and needs some serious help herself.
    Tell her if she likes the guy so much - she should go with him instead of you.

    I would have chose money because it is more important to me. But it seems like you wanted something other than money.In your case I would say you made the right descion.

    Hmm I would honestly rather have my own money. I'm materialistic and expensive, ask my boyfriend. But I don't love him because he has money. When I met him and fell in love, he was flat ass broke with no job, no car, no anything to even take me on a date. I paid for everything drove him around, etc. But he made me laugh so much! I just couldn't help falling in love. And now that he buys me Coach bags every Christmas is nice too. :)
