Nowadays,some people are usually dazzled by the gaiety and splendour of the metropolis.They become blind to this material world when they find their lifelong partner.Some of them are become money-mad.They are not finding a lover but a millionaire who can give them the luxury life they are pursuing without any effort.It seems love is not that important for people to choose their future partner.Can you share your criteria in choosing your second half?What do you think is the most important thing?Happy mylotting!

Hi Nancy and thanks for the post! I would have to say that when it comes to a better half, money and material things don't even rank on my list because IMHO, neither are worth having if you don't have someone to enjoy them with. For me, my biggest factors besides love, are trust, honesty, and open communication as I feel that they are the foundation for any long lasting relationship. Once I have found those, or feel that I have, next on my list is a sense of humor because without one life will simply chew you up and spit you out. My better half also needs to be compassionate without being a complete pushover, and he has to have opinions of his own and not just follow my lead feeling that he has to agree with me "or else". LOL! I'm sure I could think of 101 things, but for me as long as I can find the top three, I'm off to a really good start because trust, honesty, and open communication aren't qualities you find in every person, although in an ideal world they would be. I also have to have someone that can hold my attention with intelligent conversation or share some common interests as there are many things I enjoy doing, that would be a lot more fun with someone to enjoy them with, like bike riding or hiking. But that's just me and I am sure other people will look for different qualities, but for me these are by far the most important. Thanks again for the post and happy MyLotting to you as well! ~Dee~

Many were choosing a millionaire as thier lifelong partner and we cant blame them and maybe they chose for it because they love the person and not only but also they wanted to experience a happy life without any effort at all. But I myself I used to choose a person whom I really love most and love me in return whether rich or poor. And never in my wildest dreams that I can have a partner who belong to the rich family but I'd rather be choose a person who is understanding and love me forever. What is money if one of your partner does'nt love you anymore? Do you think you have a happy family?

I never married coz I am still quite young to get married.I think as for me,what matters is not how much he owns,but how deep he loves me.i would like to find an honest and responsible man.First,he should share some same interests and values and outlook on the world and life.Second,he should take good care of his parents.That's quite important.Hope every couple have a lifelong felicity.

i think there is nothing wrong in marrying a millionaire. don't judge people who get rich people as their spouses. it is their lives, and their decisions to make. the consequences and joys will also be to them. as for me, i like honest and intelligent woman. honest woman provides ease and comfort in our companionship. intelligent woman challenges me and keeps me sane. then together, we will earn our millions.
