Modern Hooker

via
Saw an interesting article on LearnVest today about a woman that dates men for $1,200 of free food per month! Although LearnVest barely mentioned their thoughts on this matter, I would have to say that I think it's stupid (although different) that she used men in this way. She makes $45,000 a year, she pays $1,475 for rent and the article claims she needed at least $1,000 a month for her credit card bills and "needed" $500 more for food.

First off, I hate how this article doesn't go into depth about her credit card bills. Why the hell does she have $1,000 worth of credit card bills to pay each month? I wish they explained that a bit more. Was this debt that has been racked up from necessities or is it just frivolous spending each month? Next - her rent. Why does she have to live in that apartment? I know it's Manhattan but couldn't she have moved to a different part of New York to find a cheaper place to live? Everyone commutes these days. Find a roommate. Find a 2nd job. Make a budget!!!!

Secondly, this gal and her friends used spreadsheets that contained details about each guy's Match.com profile but of course the article doesn't go into depth concerning what the spreadsheets contained and what they used them for. Lame.

Thirdly, they had a cap of 5 dates per guy. That is so rude! I feel super sorry for these guys who are obviously trying to take girls out on dates. I hate articles like these; they don't serve a purpose to me than basically exposing the fact that people do this sort of stuff and in a way giving others the idea to do the same thing.

Apparently the gal has a boyfriend now and is tired of playing the game. I have no respect for people that do that sort of stuff. Although I think it's nice when guys pay for dates and extravagant dinners, to rely on someone just so you can eat that night is absurd.

Do you think I'm being too harsh? What do you think of the "modern hooker"?

I agree with you completely. This is absolutely absurd. Women who use men to subsidize their life whether it be food, rent, trips, or school are completely disrespectful. I would even lean towards calling them "gold-diggers". There is something to be said for a woman who can support herself and doesn't use men shamelessly.

I don't think what she's doing is right, but I live in NYC and 1475 isn't that outrageous for living on your own in a safe neighborhood (not the Bronx or Harlem).. just sayin'!

Well, I would in no way call this woman a hooker - she's not sleeping with anyone for money - however, I think it's dumb too, mainly because I feel bad for the guys she's using.

I don't think these women are dumb - they are manipulative and smart. They know exactly what they are doing and understand the consequences, they just choose to do it because it's an easy way to live it up without having to pay for it.

Even though I think there are better and more self-sufficient ways to sustain oneself in any city - such as making a budget or cutting rent costs - I don't really see these women as "hookers" since they are not sleeping with the men, though they are mooching off of them. One thing that I would be scared about is for the safety of these women - everything comes at a price. I only hope that they have not jeoparized their safety for a fancy dinner.

That's crazy!! That's 10k more than I make and I can still manage it. Not sure about NY's rent but the rest of the stuff can defiantly be reduced. For example 1 person can easily live off 250- 300 on food a month. That's 200-250 she can use towards other stuff like paying down her cards. As for what she is doing, she's manipulative and hopefully karma will bit her in the A** and she will end up alone and without a date.

For more information on the various options available check out Audiusa.
LSU Fiesta executives rated 40 mpg on the highway, rather impressive figure
for a vehicle using a conventional transmission.
It is true that the headlights are aging they will corrode like everything
else which is based on metal.
