  • There are many variations of materialism.
    One that often people may jump to is people who obsess to buy eveything. However, I would go as far to say I am materialistic. Sure I save a lot, I hardly spend my money, but when I buy something, I really cherish my hard work to own it, and I take care of it. Materials become part of my life, and I would honestly feel a part of me would be gone if my PC or Phone was stolen. It has years of memories in pictures. I try to keep everything mint condition. I personal feel people who take care of their materials shows character. So in that sense, yes I would be with a materialistic person.
    If the person was someone who buys everything, is always broke, but has high equity, no I would not be with that person. This shows immaturity, and trying to compensate their sadness with materials.

  • Depends how bad it was, i'm okay with people who like nice things.
    But if they put objects over everything in love then they probably wouldn't be for me.

  • Hell no. I do want a girlfriend with a sense of fashion though. Other than that, if she cares about my income, what kind of car I drive/if I have a car, or if I don't have a place of my own, etc it's a no for me. Things that matter most to me are their morals and physical attractiveness.

  • No, if people are focused with the materialistic things they forget the purpose of life. Greed is the reason the world is:
    1. Not in a state of peace
    2. Still has plenty if disease
    3. Huge gap between elite and middle to lower class.
    I can go on about things that happens to the world under materialism. It is a path to the dark side.

  • I'd never date a woman who would force me to wear a condom.

    If she doesn't love me enough to want to experience 6 kids together, then she is a hindrance and selfish.

    Any woman who loves a man love want to experience the fruit of their sex together, not deny their fruit.

    • Strange thinking...

    • How?

      It is just like using a man for money. If a woman uses a man but wastes his sperm, it's like wasting his money and time and probably worse.

  • My ex girlfriend was also very materialistic. At the begining of the relation i thought that i would be just a phase, but after a whole year i had to realize, that it wasn't a phase; it was part of her personality. Very heinous! I will never ever do that same mistake again. As a normal dude with 4'700$/month it not only hurts your pocket (had to pay for her too), it also hurts your feelings. Step by step you will understand what I mean if you are in such a situation like I was.

  • Depends. If you're looking for someone to show off and you just happen to have a lot of spare money to use, dating materialistic people may be in your best interests. If you're looking for actual love, people who are materialistic are an absolute no go. They will never love you more than they love the newest phone you bought them a month ago. Personally, I wouldn't. Materialistic people are generally spoiled, without manners.

  • I care about their heart. If they are also materialistic then as long as it doesn't interfere with my money at all, I don't care what they do

  • Nope. I don't really don't care about money a lot, but I also don't want to go back to how I lived.

    I don't desire a spend queen that can put my future back at square one.

  • If she can afford it without racking up massive debt or shifting her basic necessities onto me, I would consider it depending on where her money is coming from. Otherwise, hell no.

  • I have and I try not. From what I've seen they are usually bad with money. Also they are usually attracted to your money and not you.

  • Not really. I have enough to support myself and have fun but i don't have nearly enough to be throwing money around buying stuff for her all the time.

  • No, because if someone is especially materialistic they need to spend a lot of money in order to be happy. That's irresponsible.

  • I already have and it totally sucked, it even had me questioning myself, why in the hell would I have to question myself about anything, especially at my age? When someone makes the effort to simply be around someone and/or even take the time for simple conversation, it sure as hell is priceless as opposed to trying to bribe their "love" and at the end of the day, they're not worth any of what you spent on them. I'm not talking about money either. I'm talking about time. You can never get that back. Someone to grow old with just becomes less and less likely to find in this day and age.

  • No because I care about them not about the money
    I do not have to have a rich person to love I would just want a person to love me for who I am no matter what they live in and how much money they make
    Because love is not about the money and not about being rich not about being famous not about anything like that love is about someone who really does love u for who u are etc

  • Eh, that would probably turn me away from dating them. Everyone I know who is materialistic tends to be stuck up, rude, or hold a superiority complex. So, I just think we wouldn't be very compatible.
