No, I don't. It's a generalization that oversimplifies the complexity of humans. Which is nothing but sad and simple-minded.4
As shallow as it may sound, this statement has its place in evolution.
Men look for physical traits in women for reproductive purposes.
Women look for powerful men for protection and torture of the young.
It so just happens that in our modern society, beauty and money represent the traits we inherently look for. Of course, since we have a large cerebral cortex, we don't have to behave exactly according to our primal self =)0
i sincerely disagree with statements like these that try to sum up humanity.0
The only reason why I don't agree with this statement is because I've witnessed some unnatractive women with attractive guys and I know a lot of women who could care less about money.0
I don't agree. There can be women after beauty/good looks like men want money. Every person is different. This statement just categorises both men and women and that's wrong0
I've never dated a rich guy. Totally not a consideration AT ALL. I couldn't care less about money.
.. but I believe the first part of that little 'saying'0
It is a generalization, however more women than will admit like money0
It's totally false.2

It should be mentioned in the statement that the claims are trends, not blanket assumptions. Without such clarification most people will call it out as bullshit for over-generalizing.
Also, I'd argue it's not money, but power and social status. Money is a by-product of power and social status which is why it's assumed to be on par with looks because it's a correlate of the cause.
No matter how much society wants to propagate that looks aren't the #1 factor for men choosing a mate, for the vast majority of men, it's true.
So partially true, and partially false.0
From my experience yeah thats why I'm going for younger women older women want olderguys with a home career six pack and a car0
Nah, I just want her to not be as retarded as most users here that ask questions like this or even partially agree with them.0
im sure its true for some men/women0
It depends on the person.
