Hot Car or Hot Guy?
Last night on Twitter, one of my followers @RachelTRusso posed the following statement and question; “Watching Fast and Furious and wondering what most women would rather have: Hot car or hot guy?” My answer was, I don’t care about cars sooooooo…She then asked, “Looks or money? Say you have to choose between these 2 guys–their personality/character equal.”
I Care About Character
Another follower @thedatingtruth chimed in and said, “You have to go with looks! You can make your own money! Then again money might mean he’s very smart and that is very sexy!” Since I had to choose, I went with money to which Rachel said, “You are in good company. I ask my female clients this and most choose money! They don’t need the GQ model!” My final reply was, above all else money or looks, I care about character.
Looks Or Money?
For some reason, my brother came to mind when she asked the question about looks or money. My brother was a looker when he was alive. While I can’t speak on the specific dollar amount he made, I can speak on is his excellent character. That’s what stood out about him more than anything else and that’s what everyone spoke about at his funeral; his character…the person he was. The husband he was. The father he was. The leader he was. The man he was amongst his friends and family. My brother’s been gone three years. When people talk about him to this day, the one thing they always talk about is his character. That’s a great legacy to leave behind.
Who A Person Is vs. What A Person Does
We hear looks fade but when you see someone’s looks fade right before your eyes, it changes the way you look at things. Before I went through this experience with my brother, I was never turned on by external factors. That’s just not who I am. After this experience, I care even less about external factors. I was talking to a gentleman the other day who was going on and on about the kind of car he drives. Apparently its some kind of hot car. As he was talking about his car, he expected me to ask about it. When I didn’t he said, “That’s a first. Most women ask what kind of car I drive.”
I’ll Take It…In That Order
I believe him. The kind of car you drive and how much money you make are huge relationship deciding factors here in Los Angeles. My reply was, I’m not trying to be rude or disrespectful but I didn’t ask because I really don’t care. I wouldn’t date you because of your car. I would date you because of your character. He was speechless! Now let me be clear, a man with excellent character who loves me unconditionally, makes a lot of money, drives a hot car and makes me weak in the knees is alright with me. I’ll take it…in that order.
If you marry for money, health or looks, keep in mind that none of these are certain to remain. The man or woman you’re thinking of marrying should be someone whose character can survive major life challenges. Gary Thomas
Something to think about…
