I'm not just talking about on GaG. From my own experience on GaG, girls pretend to live in this utopia where anything you'll ever want and need can be purchased using love, and money and finances play no role in how women see men.
There's a difference between pretending that money isn't the most important thing in a man, and pretending that money doesn't matter at all! I don't think people appreciate just how deep of a lie it is to say that money doesn't matter or all, or that it matters just a little bit. But I digress, everyone is free to BS themselves and those around them.
So, I'm curious to hear from both guys and girls on this issue. In your own personal experience, would you say that girls or women are generally comfortable and honest about the fact that money is an important consideration when it comes to men and relationships? In the sense that how guys are generally open and honest about how sex or physical appearances are important to them when it comes to women.
You can feel free to explain, especially if the answer is no.

Most of them aren't comfortable, as they'll coach their feelings on the matter in terms such as "I want a man who is stable, secure, etc.". Those are just code words for mildly wealthy to really wealthy, depending upon the girl.
Of the 925 single women surveyed, 75 percent said they'd have a problem with dating someone without a job. Only 4 percent of respondents asked whether they would go out with an unemployed man answered "of course."
The fact of the matter is, girls require a lot of creature comforts and they like to spend money, both that of their own, and that of their partner. Most women have a hard time living a frugal lifestyle.
Single women are more likely to rack up credit card debt than single men:
Women seek men that can give them lots of creature comforts, which is why wealthy men are very suspicious when it comes to the motives of girls who want to be with them. Women almost never marry men who make less than them. Women who also marry men who make less than the wife also are at a much higher risk of divorce than compared to when the man makes more.
Most women do not respect men who do not bring home a significant chunk of bacon, no matter what the gender equalists will claim. The studies have time and again shown that money matters a lot to a woman in choice if a mate for any long-term relationship, and even more so for marriage. Any man who has high income or high income potential should be very concerned about any girl that expresses materialistic tendencies.8
