The following account is real.
I bring this to you not because it news, but because it’s not:
Did you ever really love me?
Honestly, the first year of our relationship I was very much in love with you. We traveled all over the world, stayed in beautiful hotels, dined at great restaurants. It was wonderful. Then your business went downhill and we stopped doing things.
We stopped traveling but we still did things.
What things? We mostly stayed at home and watched movies.
So you were in love with the lifestyle.
You were the lifestyle.
Understand that many men are simply incapable of falling in love with any woman who doesn’t satisfy an exacting set of physical standards.
The problem is that gold-diggers have those standards etched into the fabric of their DNA, so they hold all the cards.
And people wonder why so many affluent older men become trapped in vicious cycles of defeated expectations, as they try to get “perfect” women to love them for who they are.
In my world, fortunes come and go every day, mostly under these circumstances.
Aging is a weird thing. We learn more about a lot of things, but the basics never change: love, lust, money, but in the reverse order.
