I was just wondereing who most bees would choose if they HAD to pick a guy to spend the rest of your life with. Each of these guys is a nice guy. Your family and friends like him, but…
1) The first guy is very rich. He won the lottery and you will never ever have to worry about money. But, he is kind of boring and not very attractive at all in your eyes.
2) The second guy is fascinating. He tells wonderful stories and is very smart. But, he is dead broke, probably will never make a lot of money, and you do not find him attractive at all.
3) The third guy is drop dead gorgeous with an amazing body. But, again no money to speak of with no desire to make a lot of money and the conversations are quite dull.
Gun to your head, you have to pick one, who would it be and why?

@maureen0907: I’d be dead because all those seem like a lifetime of torture to me.

@jadlnc: It would be torture to live with someone smart? Whaaaat? HAHA EDIT…I didn’t read the post.
Why would the smart person not be able to make money? He must not actually be smart….

@peachacid: Smart or not, if I don’t find him attractive at all…for one, attractedness doesn’t only come from looks and for two, I’d have to find something attractive somewhere. My FI isn’t hot or gorgeous (he actually has a rather large nose and his bottom lip is way bigger than the top one), but there are things that attract me to him. His eyes, his hands, his hugs (seriously, he gives the best hugs). There’s got to be something or I’d always be looking at and thinking about other guys being stuck with a guy I’m absolutely not attracted to.
ETA: Ha, I totally missed where you said you didn’t read the whole post. Now we’re both not paying attention. lol.

Honestly, I’d be miserable with any of them. But I chose smarts, because I think the ability to have a real conversation is something I could never live without

Rich guy. It affords me vacations with the other two.

I’m going rich guy!
I have friends for intellectual stimulation, and a vibrator for sexual stimulation.
But if he’s a nice guy, and we could make a nice life together, that has to be the guy I choose! Not too hard–But I’ve also been extremely poor. And not even for good conversation could I ever chose that life again!

I would choose the rich guy, but.. by all means, they are all horrible choices!
I mean.. the rich guy is “not very” attractive, while the smart guy is “not at all” attractive, so already that puts the rich guy above him.. and the hot guy, while attractive, obviously has no work ethics to make money.. living isn’t free! The hot guy, is also terribly boring, which would make him less attractive to me, while the rich guy is only “kind of boring”.

The smart guy. I can deal with somebody not being attractive and being broke (hey, I already don’t have any money!), but I can’t deal with someone who is boring or doesn’t like conversation.
Luckily FH is smart guy and hunky guy rolled into one man… I don’t care about the money aspect.

@maureen0907: Smart!! How can smart not be attractive!!
Post # 12
This was really hard!! I have to be attracted to someone, but I couldn’t be bored by them, and knowledge does aid my attraction. So I voted smart

I chose the smart guy. If the rich guy can’t keep me interested and the hunky guy is going to lose his looks eventually like the rest of them, might as well have a guy who i can at least talk to for better or worse.

@maureen0907: I picked the rich guy. There has to be SOME level of attraction otherwise I wouldn’t be happy. So as awesome as the smart guy sounds, if I have NO attraction to him, it wouldn’t work. Then the hunky guy has nothing going for him but his looks and that fades. The rich guy may lose his money over time, but that’s not what’s important to me. He may be boring, but I’m not the life of the party and we could afford to have adventures every now and then. And at least there’s some attraction there.
