I had an epiphany the other day and I would like to copyright this thought because it's so damn brilliant. My ex-bf used to always call me materialistic and a gold digger. I would rebuttal with, 'If I was a gold digger why would I be with YOU? You're poor as hell.' Which leads to this very important distinction between a gold digger and a girl who's just old-fashioned (ie. a man should take care of his woman): a gold digger would never date a man who's poor; an old-fashioned girl will date a poor man in the hopes that he'll love her enough to make more than enough to make sure they have the life that they always wanted together...and that's a good thing because it means you have faith in their intellect and their abilities for the future.
