Women Or Money?

Recently I was with some friends and we were listening to a song by Rich Boy and featuring both Lil Wayne and Nas. In the song, Nas states “you lose money chasing women but never lose women chasing money“. Naturally, given the nature of my friends we began a friendly debate on the validity of this statement and overall which one is more important-women or money.

One of my friends has always been somewhat of a ladies man and through the course of his dating career has developed an ability that I see as immature and uncharacteristic of what I consider to be a man. Simply put, women love to buy this guy things. Every time I see him, he is wearing a new pair of $100 shoes, a new $300 leather jacket or sporting a pocket full of money that some obviously dazed and confused woman gladly handed him. Naturally he sees nothing wrong with accepting these “gifts” from women as the way he looks at it “if they are willing to offer, how could I refuse?”

I’m sure whether you are a man or women, you know someone like this and you have probably dated a man or woman like this. Unfortunately due to societal definitions we look down on this type of woman as a gold digger but praise this type of man as a pimp. In my opinion, both are equally poor excuses for human beings as no one should take advantage of another person’s insecurities for their own gain. Nonetheless, my friend was hell bent on debating that the pursuit of women is more important as it will procure a man both money and women.
