^ Theory was probably concocted from a bitter unsuccessful guy! LOL He got burned by some girl, couldn't determine that it was his dumb ass attitude, and decided to blame it on money. Classic.
Well of COURSE a successful guy will be more attractive than an unsuccessful guy. Duh. But in my mind it has nothing to do with money. It is because the man has intelligence/drive/can sacrifice now for something better in the future/and any other generally good qualities. That is INFINITELY more attractive than than some guy who doesn't get it/whines/no ambition/never tries.
The successful guy doesn't have to have wads of cash. He can earn $30k and be successful in my mind if he is happy with what he is accomplishing in life. I guess I'm equating success with accomplishing goals and thus being a happy man.
A man that just has money and is a lazy piece of shit is ugly as hell. I think they are less attractive than the unsuccessful bitter guy.
Anyway, another oversimplification in an attempt to understand women.
