What do you do when a guy offers you the world?

Not me, my best friend. She's single and basically living in poverty. She's been offered her dream business, dream house and dream vehicle. The catch, of course, is she's not in love with the guy, but he is with her. What should she do? There are no children involved (my friend and the head-over-heels guy are grandparents).

  • She is very fond of him, they get along great. This is not their first relationship together but the continuation of a previous one.

  • You are right. Money can't buy you love. But money can buy you food, and pipes that don't freeze solid, and comfort and security.

  • With money comes power and with power comes control. If she's ok with that then tell her to go for it. She can always divorce him

  • My friend has been in the amazing position of having this happen more than once. Men offer her the world. But she is cautious and that's why she's still available.

  • men don't give things away without expectations- i wouldn't do it...but i also wouldn't stay with a man if i didn't see myself falling in love with him.
