    Has anyone here ever had a would be suitor try to buy their way into your affections?
    I have recently and he presented himself and his "sales pitch" and I couldn't help but feel outraged that he felt I could be brought.

    that has got to be one of the most desperate things to do in order to find a mate. im sure he'll find himself a nice little trophy wife to buy

    If your talking about someone buying you things. I had a woman years ago buy me a gold chain after only knowing her less than a week. Once that chain went on my neck i felt as if i were owned. And i was. Not a good idea. Stick to your guns. You are right in how you feel.

    A little class goes a lot further than money...and boasting with your wallet's usually a pretty good way of showing just how little class you have.

    That said, I'd believe the flashy approach would be more likely to impress the young and naive girls...but a mature woman? Like Dragonfly, I'd imagine most are going to be looking past the bling for something of more substance.

    I had debated with myself if it would be the right thing to do to reveal what he was offering?

    Just tell me it wasn't a sojourn in a remote beachfront Balinese villa...

    He had brought with him a pale green box with a very large diamond solitare.
    Houses in Aspen and Sydney and an appartment in New York over looking a park.
    And as a wedding gift a 600 acre Island off the coast of Costa Rica.

    I told him he was out of his mind and walked out.

    The gent in question is 57, American, fat, bald and is not a pleasant chappy at all.
    We have had very little to do with one another but we do share some business contacts that brings us into the same orbit every now and again.
    To say I was shocked was an understatement.

    I need a new car, how do i find someone like this?

    Well they say if you marry someone for money that you earn every penny of it. I certainly didn't marry for money.

    If he has health insurance i know a ton of "blushy" blondes who might move across the world to marry him.

    This arsehole is cut from the same cloth as my Ex husband so I have no desire what so ever to go back to that.
    I won't do business projects with him, there is no way in hell I'd marry him.

    I was about to say before I read this post he was probably fat and obnoxious. I'm sorry this lout approached you like this. Most American men are not such classless jerks.

    I would write him off as a loser. :cool:

    Wow!

    Do you have any idea what might have prompted that sudden declaration? You are beautiful and very intelligent , but if you dont have the kind of history between you that could have prompted this I wonder what on earth he was thinking?
