Is an obsession to get rich that much of a turn off?

I have a serious obsession to get rich. I hustle like no other and I'm about to graduate college. Have a capital of $113,000. Not going to go into details or my plans but I think a 6 figure capital during college and no debt is impressive itself.

Truthfully would a girl see this as a bad thing. Would love to be rich with my future wife. It is indeed an obsession though. I haven't dated in years lol.. I live like a hermit and only work.. workout.. and school.

  • No, I don't want to be rich, I want to be doing well enough to where I can live comfortably, and I guess I'm on the right track haha. Money is just paper, and sure it can get you all the latest gadgets and fancy things you want, but I don't care about that kind of stuff. People that have an obsession with money tend to be nasty people, I'm more focused on your heart and soul than what you can buy. You can't buy a kind heart. I don't know why you would spend so much of your time worried about something as temporary and meaningless as money. I'm focused on where I'm going when I die, I could care less about living like a rich person. Even all the money in the world can't buy you a place in heaven, so why treat it like it matters as much as you're making it to?

  • There's nothing wrong in my opinion with wanting to be successful and make money. I have the same goal. However it is not good if it is a obsession and takes over your life. I'd be too worried that a guy like that will be a workaholic and not be there for me and our relationship.

  • Sorry, but it's a huge turn off for me... I couldn't be with someone who has an obsession like that. I need freedom in a partner, and to have a partner who is obsessed with something as powerful as money would feel really dark to me. Obsessions of any kind trap the mind and the spirit, and I couldn't handle that.

    It's a plus to be financially stable and know your way around money, don't get me wrong... but it's not something I need more and more and more of. Feeding addictions turns them into a spiral of greed that can be hard to escape from.

  • Depends on how a relationship with you is. No woman is going to object to a rich man. We seek a protector and a provider. A rich man is a great candidate.
    But we also need a partner and if your workaholism takes over our life together and you can't meet my emotional needs, or if you have some messed up value system regarding money, as in you measure life trough it, then the fact that you're a great provider can't make up for it. No way. I would dump you as soon as you show me you can't meet my companionship needs.

  • I'm actually curious as to why you have the desire to be so wealthy?

    I can admire a man that works hard to provide a good life for his family, to help out his parents, to have the ability to do charitable things with such riches. But many people with this lust for riches tend to only want it so they can raise their status in society or to women, to spend in excess, and that is a turn off.

    You should balance your life, being rich will not make you happy as you would be with having relationships in your life outside of work and school (and the gym haha)

    Money comes and goes, time is something you can never take back.

  • Not a turn off. You are ambitious and have set a goal for yourself. You'd have to be kidding yourself if you have no desire to be so financially well off that you don't have to worry about what bills to jungle and if you have enough money in your account to by an item from the dollar menu. My aim is to become rich and create my own empire. If that's a turn off for a guy then it's his loss. I only want to be with someone who is as ambitious as me and not trying to drag me down.

  • It's never going to be a "turn on" persay. But it could be a "turn off".

    Honestly, it doesn't matter if you can separate/balance your life well. What matters is placing priorities on what's important to you.

    If a woman is important to you, you'll need to focus more of your attention you used to have elsewhere, on her.

    It's all about balancing responsibilities and focus depending on your priorities.

  • It's a bit of a turn off because your obsession is with being rich (which is the end result) rather than successful which looks more at the process.

  • You should have an answer as "it doesn't matter" it can be thought of that you want to provide for your families future. Plus money seems to be all the world can think about and focus on. It's not a turn off though just matters how much ur obsessed with it.

  • I honestly don't see it as a turn on or a turn off. If that's what you want to do then I want you to do you, but it doesn't make you any more or less appealing to me. When your "obsession to get rich" gets in the way of our relationship, that will be a problem.

  • While ambition can be a good trait to have, taking it to obsession is too much (for me). I would start questioning if making more money was more important than me. I have no desire to be rich (just to live comfortably) so our goals in life would clash. There are some women out there that are equally ambitious with money and would probably make a better partner.

  • in my opinion I think the issue with most women won't be the drive to be successful... it is the love and admiration of money that you portray comes off as shallow.

  • "I have a serious obsession to get rich"
    " I haven't dated in years lol"

    I think you really should compare these two lines, and you'll find the underlining issues that are caused by such desire for excess cash.

  • Honestly, you only have one life, so why not aim for your goals? If I was you though, I wouldn't flaunt it or always talk about making money. Unless they are business orientated, but for a general purpose conversation it's best to keep those goals to yourself and just act on them.

    • It's like everything that women say but don't understand with men, a successful man that they are attracted to, probably had this exact mental mindset. Yet a girl would say its a turn off. Women want a guy who is good in bed, he probably was a player (the guys that women don't like apparently) before being with her. Could go on but you get the picture.

  • As long as you don't hoard money and do nothing with it. As long as you're giving back to society.

  • From what I've learned people love ambition but hate obsession with money. People who have desire and passion to create something or bring something to the world is beloved. Someone who just wants money just sounds greedy. And greedy people seem weak and cruel. It's not attractive. Being rich is desirable but obsessing over money usually isn't.

  • Starting from zero, it's possible to become rich. But only if you neglect about all other things and persons in life. And it will take many years.
    Success on finding a wife willing to be neglected that long. Gold diggers prefer ready made millionaires.

  • Dude, fuck the lying women in that poll.

    Seriously, tip of the hat to you. The economy is only going to get more polarized, and you'll either be rich or out in the cold. Guess where women will want to be?

    Keep at it.

    • Fck no I grew up poor. I saved all my money since 16 years old. Last two years i drove for uber and hustled. I would pull in $3200 a month. I invested $2,000 into my dividend stalks and I was making a 10% annual return. I was hustling uber at 60 hours a week AND I was taking a full college load. GTFO. *Drops mic*

      But honestly it's people like you that are going to be poor. Social Mobility is far from impossible. This is just social darwinism at work.
