A lot of woman keep marrying people like Donald Trump so it just make me wonder if money makes them more attracted to him . I know wealth attract a lot of gold digger but this is not always the case !! So it lead me to ask if these young women/men truly find a person 2/3 decade older than them attractive .

Money attracts anything to anyone who is on it. When your focus your life on money only, then it can change anything even your prospect and way of life. Even if it is bad or illegal you would do it just to have it because you are to focus on getting fame and money. That is the wrong perception today in our world, people used money to gain and get something even if its not the right way.

we must always train ourselves to use money wisely and make it work for us, not us working for the money.. its the passive way. :)

I get so angered by people judging others by the amount of money they have or whether they look like Brad Pitt or David Beckham, they don't take the time to look for the real person 'inside' If you don't have the looks or the money you are passed by or invisible. But then if you are rich how can you possibly know for real that your partner is only with you for the money or for your companionship! At least when you don't have money or the looks and you have someone that wants to be with you, its for the right reasons and not for what they can get out of you or see you as a trophy.

So true with money people often never notice the real person just what they have to offer . Its easier for a person without money to know that their partner really love them because they never leave even in the lowest time . And people that get caught up with looks or not better because looks will fade .

It is more likely that they are attracted to the money, than the actual man, but the money also gives them power which a lot of women find attractive, they like a man that has power. It could also be that man with a lot money is a fun person because they don't have to worry about how much things cost. It doesn't have to be all about the money though, I know men like Donald Trump can be very complimentary and charming when they want to be, and that is always attractive as well.

That true a powerful man is attractive , and goes well with charm and charisma . Its not always the money but if I was rich I would feel less secure about the people that hang around me . We just have to trust I guess and they need love just as the next guy .

Actually,there are really some people choose the rich as their lovers without thinking other aspects.In my opinion,maybe some of them married really because of true love,but I still think that most of them do like this just want their money.The rich's money can let them less work hard for more than ten years.People become more and more realistic in this quick fix society.They only choose the way which can help them to succeed.

Yes nothing is wrong when you love a rich person for them and yes some people really love some rich people but not for their money . I know we all dont want to have a hard life but its bad when people set out to used another , even though we sometimes plan to used a person it can turn to love .

many people needs money, many people do anything just to have money, some are making crimes for money, but marrying a man/woman just for money? thats too much if we have respect to God we should respect the word LOVE, and Marriage. for me MARRIaGE is sacred so we should not use people, love, marriage, and God just for money, haw sad reality.

Yes its hard to live without money and some cant settle for a small amount they want it all . I also agree that marriage is screed and should not be enter into just for money but only for love .

I don't think even money could make Donald Trump attractive...lol But I don;t think money is the attractivenes because you must realize money follows money,,,,The money people are not apt to communicate one a regular intimate loving level with people who are not financial stable like themselves...

I guess money can make people more attractive, depends your definition of what "attraction" is... With all the plastic surgeries & clothings & accessories, some will look more attractive than others...

I kinda mean being drawn to them because they are rich and famous , not caring how they look are their personality . You know whenever you meet someone rich you just want to know more about them so is it the money? are is it them? you really want to know about

Money is attractive, it is. I'd love more but what I'd do for it only depends on how bad off I am. Luckily I'm holding my own so I probably wouldn't be attracted to anyone JUST because of the money. Age difference varies too. When I was in my twenties it would not have been impossible to be attracted to someone in their forties or fifties because I'm always attracted to intelligence, wisdom. But now that I'm older and wiser myself (where's an emoticon when you need one) I'm wouldn't be attracted to someone that much older because I'm not all starry eyed and innocent.

You go keep that up , that how I look at things too . I love money but I dont think I would do anything immoral for it , but a lot of people have different upbringing and harder life and its sad if they are doing something they dontt like but not everyone have problem sleeping at night . I have no problem with age either its just the person personality that matter .

It's a personal taste. the young women are gold digger but some of them may be really attach to the old man's personal. Me myself like a man who much older than me, a guy at my age is not my type. I find myself more comfort talking with them and I adore their mature minded

Yeah I have seen some younger man that find older woman attractive sincerely , but when a person have money its harder for them to find someone who will love them for them . If they lose all their wealth tomorrow would those people still be around !

If they don't have the choice, they take advantage of what they have. Catching a big fish in the sea is easy, compared to looking for a decent job. I don't judge them, but that is their preferences.

My personal life I rather to be the catch , . I dont mind how a person live their life , I was just wondering if people with money look more attractive , people with money get lots of compliment and always seems attractive . Would so much woman/men for example find Donald Trump and Janice Dickinson, attractive if they were broke and unemployed , my guess would be NO!!

It can't be denied that money's attraction is very strong to men of all ages. Values are sacrificed just because of money. But it's not easy to judge people who give in to its attraction as we have no personal knowledge on how they live or on the struggles of life they have been through.

It sure cant money is very tempting , even when choosing a job . No denying that we all judge people also even if we dont admit it , but we dont know a personal life and it harder for a person who have lots of money to find someone who actually love them just for them .

Yes there are people who wanted to be their partner lot older than them. We cannot teach our heart whom to love. We have different preferences too. Its true that most of the times we find it "odd" that a beautiful young woman is in a relationship with a man who is older than her father. Usually we find fault in it or if the man is wealthy, the first thing that pop into our mind is that the woman is a gold digger. But here in our country there is a beautiful rich young actress who fell in love with an actor who can be her grandfather. They lived together for 22 years and not even once that the actress was linked to other actor or man. And when the actor passed away, you can see in her that she truly loved her partner.

As I said in another comment , some times a person may enjoy another person company regardless of age but when you see someone 2,3 decade older than a person you first though would be money , normally the older person have money and the younger person have the fun . Its like a boss dating his employee , the relationship can be genuine but most times that is not the case , employee want promotion boss want some action . Celine Dion is one of the true rare love I see out there .

In this context, there is no interest, other than money.

Money itself is indeed attractive so those people possessing huge wealth, they are definitely attractive to scammers and people who would like to take advantage of them. More women are becoming practical nowadays. They say that this era no longer find Mr. Hunk to be very attractive. Most women find a man who both have wealth and character. I have also seen an interview where a wealthy woman said that it is a sin to become ugly if you have lots of money. Maybe because they can pay for treatments and surgeries to make them look good. With regards to having a relationship with an older man, I think that mostly but not all are just after the money. Some would just find someone to marry in the internet but I think that there are some who are really not after the money. I think the partner of the comedy king is one of them. He is much older than her, I believe even older than her father, but I can see that she loves this man genuinely. So we can't really say unless we know them personally. But I still saw some older guys who are still gorgeous and attractive. I think that it is still possible but rare.

I know a lot of older woman/man that are very attractive but sometimes they them self not looking for love , they are looking for fun and the younger one is looking for money so I guess at the end of they day they both win . Sometimes love come in play but that is mostly when their was no money to beginning with . The power of money is so strong it can make a good person get bad .

It is so frustrating to realize that people judge others by how they look or how much money they have. Overseeing the personality of a person is the common thing that people nowadays commit. Money is indeed important in our daily lives, but money isn't everything. Attraction? maybe just the attraction of glittering pleasures, but not LOVE.....so sad...

Yes a person will just see a rich person and automatically think that is their soul mate base on their wealth .
