Hi! It’s Brad,
A dating coach friend of mine sent me this craigslist ad
that he found and it’s epic.
It’s a 25-year-old gold digger looking for a rich guy.
I’m going to share her ad and then an epic response
from a Wall Street banker.
You’re going to learn exactly why sugar daddy
arrangements never work and you need to focus on game.
Here’s the girl’s ad from craigslist:
“What am I doing wrong?
Okay, I’m tired of beating around the bush. I’m a
beautiful (spectacularly beautiful) 25-year-old girl.
I’m articulate and classy. I’m not from New York. I’m
looking to get married to a guy who makes at least half
a million a year.
I know how that sounds, but keep in mind that a million
a year is middle class in New York City, so I don’t
think I’m overreaching at all.
Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board?
Any wives? Could you send me some tips? I dated a
businessman who makes average around 200 – 250. But
that’s where I seem to hit a roadblock.
250,000 won’t get me to central park west. I know a
woman in my yoga class who was married to an investment
banker and lives in Tribeca, and she’s not as pretty as
I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing
right? How do I get to her level?
Here are my questions specifically:
– Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me
specifics – bars, restaurants, and gyms?
– What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys,
you won’t hurt my feelings…
– Is there an age range I should be targeting (I’m 25)?
– Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on
the Upper East Side so plain? I’ve seen really ‘plain
Jane’ boring types who have nothing to offer married to
incredibly wealthy guys. I’ve seen drop dead gorgeous
girls in singles bars in the east village. What’s the
– Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows – lawyer,
investment banker, doctor. How much do those guys really
make? And where do they hang out? Where do the hedge
fund guys hang out?
– How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am
looking for MARRIAGE ONLY.”
And the brilliantly blunt response…
I read your posting with great interest and have thought
meaningfully about your dilemma. I offer the following
analysis of your predicament:
Firstly, I’m not wasting your time, I qualify as a guy
who fits your bill; that is I make more than $500K per
year. That said here’s how I see it:
Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is
plain and simple a crappy business deal. Here’s why…
Cutting through all the B.S., what you suggest is a
You bring your looks to the party and I bring my money.
Fine, simple. But here’s the rub, your looks will fade
and my money will likely continue into perpetuity… in
fact, it is very likely that my income increases but it
is an absolute certainty that you won’t be getting any
So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I
am an earning asset. Not only are you a depreciating
asset, your depreciation accelerates! Let me explain,
you’re 25 now and will likely stay pretty hot for the
next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade
begins in earnest. By 35, you’re about done.
So in Wall Street terms, we would call you a trading
position, not a buy and hold… hence the rub…
It doesn’t make good business sense to “buy you” (which
is what you’re asking) so I’d rather lease. In case you
think I’m being cruel, I would say the following:
If my money were to go away, so would you, so when your
beauty fades I need an out. It’s as simple as that. So a
deal that makes sense is dating, not marriage.
By the way, you could always find a way to make your own
money and then we wouldn’t need to have this difficult
I absolutely love this. I’ve had high-income clients
like this guy come to me because gold-diggers were
constantly using them and they were not getting the sex
You gotta be smart, this is a real thing. To some of
these girls rich guys are like a walking wallet.
You guys with money HAVE GOT TO DEVELOP GAME…
