Rich women dating for singles
That car -- a tiny black stick-shift Audi TT -- came to encapsulate the best and worst parts of our relationship.I loved it because we could spend hours in it together, driving around the small town outside the college, going on dates at hick restaurants, and killing time away from the suffocating campus.Unfortunately, I proceeded to burn the bridge between us in the following years, and we've become total strangers to one another.In the end, that relationship failed for a multitude of reasons (like I said, I was a dumbass) -- but my attitude about her background was one of the biggest ones on my end.
I grouped a girl that I loved -- and yes, through all that, I did love her -- with an unattainable concept of wealth and power that was just that: a concept.
So when I tell you that I was in a relationship with a woman and money was a huge factor in our dynamic, I can understand if you assume that I was more interested in what was in her purse than what was in her head or heart.
While I have to admit that I have my fair share of character flaws (vanity and arrogance coupled with spurts of crippling self-doubt -- I'm a writer, remember), I’m not quite that shallow.

Later that week, she told me she was glad we were prevented from going through with it. "And he told me 'If you put a hole in your nose, you lose ,000.'" I had three tattoos by then, and before the first my father had threatened to kick me out of the house. That she had a similar challenge and balked when a specific, quantifiable consequence could be issued bothered me to no end.
