The following is what a women posted on a dating forum seeking a rich husband:

I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here. I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.

My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?

Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.
If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.

I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:

1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)
Ms. Pretty

A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan below:

Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.
My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.
From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.

Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money” : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.
However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.

Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position”.
If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term – same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased”.

Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Hope this reply helps.

signed,
J.P. Morgan CEO

  1. Good advice. If that is all she seeks, that would not make for a happy marriage. If her beauty is all she has to offer, that would not be a good 'investment'. There are a lot of 'average looking' women who have more to offer in a marriage. A kind heart, a sense of humor, and intelligence are worth a lot more than beauty.

  2. Most probably a cold fish as she is too in love with herself to actually love a spouse. She is looking for a sugar daddy, not a spouse. If she is hot, she will cheat the first chance she gets. Females like her are a dime a dozen. many of the try acting & never get farther than the casting couch or porno flicks. Many don't even have enough talent to make it there either.

  3. Beautiful response. Although, it seems like the CEO would spellcheck lol;-) jk. This is so true though. All these young girls think they can hook a rich guy by their looks. Everyone gets old. My suggestion is to first, learn to appreciate a man for more than money, second, learn how to treat and touch a man. Lol this is too funny! Good for him!!!!

  4. As an English major and one who has taken a logic course, I feel this article comes off as "phony." The woman's profile may be genuine, but I don't think a bank CEO would have the time or interest in perusing a "common" dating site. The fact is there are companies that specialize in matchmaking for wealthy individuals, and all applicants are thoroughly vetted. Additionally, there is wording in the reply that would indicate it was written by someone other than a CEO, e.g., a well-educated banker would know the difference between “advice” and “advise,” since I'm sure he advises people all day long and, hopefully, they take his advice. Also, a financial bigwig would not be so careless as to write a grammatically awkward phrase, such as “make yourself to become a rich person.” I suspect someone (very likely a poor man) made up this bogus reply in order to vicariously get back at all the pretty girls that won't give him the time of day. He may think it's because of his pocketbook, but it's more likely his ego or personality that causes them to shun him. My question to him would be, why not pursue average-looking women rather than gorgeous gold diggers? Also, why is it okay for men to desire and chase pretty women but wrong for pretty women to capitalize on their good looks? That's just "tit for tat," if you'll pardon the unintended pun. I disagree with either motive (i.e., the "selling" or "buying" of someone's good looks), but that's usually how the "game" is played. Lastly, what woman in her right mind would want a man – no matter how much dough he has – who would preface a sentence with “It might be cruel to say this…”? Obviously, he is cruel, and no amount of money can compensate for that. Sounds to me like these two individuals both need new hearts, compliments of Jesus.

  5. While I normally look down on the 'grammar police', I must point this out; for >$500K a year, he used the word 'advice' wrong, when he should have used 'advise'.

  6. I would suggest she spend time helping others instead of herself. Put the needs of others ahead of her own. Volunteer to help the elderly or maybe be a "big sister" to a young girl who has no mother. Care more about others than she does herself and money will become less important to her.
    Matthew 6:31-33
    31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
    32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
    33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

  7. The letter from the CEO of JP morgan was great and she is not that beautiful any way and her beauty will fade men with money would spot her greed from far but they could use here for a while then get rid of her after 5 -8 years she will be used up

  8. There is a fool born every moment! People of wealth will not pay attention to this kind of woman for obvious reasons. Example; If a man has money he will purchase what he wants. Only a fool would buy into this arrangement. Money is Temporary! Love is very dangerous , people of wealth become bored quickly. If the women cheats? Adultery is met by death often. Men of wealth have more concern for money, Profit and Legacy than love. A man of God, can suffer the same affliction, reputation and Legacy! Love? real love? does not concern beauty! It deals more with spirit, mind and heart than money. Compatibility is where the heart finds its wealth, love and longevity. These are not temporary things, these are the staples of life's happiness.

  9. Wow! Neither one of these letters are well written but the CEO's letter is definitely the worst of the two. How does someone become a CEO with such poor writing skills?

    I don't care if this upsets feminist but "pretty girl" is simply acting on instinct because women instinctively look upon men as providers.

  10. Go make your own money, silly girl. Rich does not equal happy, regardless what you are brainwashed into thinking by the entertainment industry.

  11. The stunning part is that both have pitiable grammar. If I were to receive a business related communication from either of these people I would simply dispose of it to avoid embarrassing them.

  12. Not true. Men of wealth throw their money down the drain on beauty over character every day all around the world. All fools, I agree, but it still happens time and time again. She would be better off just putting herself out there and lying than being upfront about her motives in a letter.

  13. Substantive advice.

    Not all CEO's are good in grammar and composition. They might be very good in signing only. No question how good they are in their respective jobs tho…..

  14. Ha ha, her problem is she is shallow and has no class. A rich man can find an attractive woman with looks, class, heart , and achievements. So why would he need her?

  15. Number 1 get a real education, study, learn and get a job and work your way up to a decent position yourself. Learn about life and then you MIGHT attract a nice man.

  16. Maita Pat Because Anne Hathaway is a selfish, money hungry, got her own head stuck up her own ass, thinks her shit don't stink, piece of white trailer park trash skank. She is the epitome of everything wrong in this open minded,let's give gay people not only equal rights but special rights, society that we live in. I'm sick and tired of women like this being forced down our throats and telling our children that this behavior is "normal" Sorry for venting. This is all.

  17. Timothy Raybon Anne Hathaway is rich on her own and always seems nice but yet you probably dont say the same thing about the crude rude singers and out of control stars using drugs..at least Anne acts like a lady not a hoe bag like most of them who steal others husbands(Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie)

  18. Actually, not really Andrea, anything a CEO does is edited and filtered through a public relations staff. I can tell you from personal experience, CEO's sometimes come across as babbling idiots when they side step the usual procedures and make an emotional statement.

  19. We raise our sons and daughters different. We teach our sons to love the woman they are with and we teach our daughters to marry a man of means who can take care of them. This is why so many relationships do not work out.

  20. OMG. Girls stop thinking about money. Money helps but it doesn't give you true happiness and that's what's important. The most important thing in life is to be happy. Everything else will follow. So tired of girls of all ages sing stupid stuff lie that. $ doesn't = ♥or :) . Put it in pics do some of you can understand.

  21. Chances are if she succeeded in attracting the interest of someone there, he would already have wives and concubines. She'd have to be okay with the idea of sharing and being displaced by the next pretty face to come along!

  22. The value of anything is always determined by how rare it is and how many people want it. New York is glutted with beautiful single women and few attractive available single men, so unfortunately individually none of these women would be of enough value to "buy" rather than "rent" unless they had something else to offer (brains, character, a successful career, family connections). Historically these women have better luck in a "boomtown" where there are more men than women and they have well-paying jobs and opportunities to start successful companies. Of course there are no guarantees in life, and someone who is wealthy today could be not so wealthy tomorrow. She'd have a better shot of long-term happiness looking for a good man who is hardworking and has good values and HELP him (and her) become wealthy together. If he doesn't become wealthy, she'll still be better off with a good man. (Wealth doesn't necessarily make you happy. Ask any of the Kennedy wives.)

  23. I was just joking around about his spelling. :-) my opinion on the matter was after that. I was more focused on how these young girls are being brought up to think their beauty is what "bags a rich guy." As if a man is simply there to be a vending machine for them. Men and women alike should be treated with respect but I've seen so many superficial females mistreat their men because of how materialistic they are.

  24. First, that was NOT WRITTEN by, Jamie Dimon, the COE of CHASE! There is NO WAY he has such poor grammar. This is just another one of the things UPworthy creates to drag people to their site!

  25. Timothy, thank you so much I really appreciate that! My hubby is a really good man and he appreciates me as much as I do him. That was a really nice thing to say:-)

  26. Dear J.P.; Your spell checker didn't catch it, but the correct word you are looking for in this sentence "I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy." is "advise", not advice. Peace to you.

  27. Carolyn Jean ..I am a very poor man, and I probably have a broader vocabulary than you. The amount of money in someone's pocket does not necessarily indicate their intelligence. Also, having large amounts of money does not necessarily denote higher intelligence. Examples; Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Okra Winfrey, and a long list of others that are always showing their ignorance on national television!

  28. Was this written by one of the writing service hacks, so pervasive on the internet?—Shame! [on SO many levels!]!
    Ms. Pretty needs to better herself, first…in all departments—Grammar, perception of the world, manners, everything. She must never have had an elder telling her things like
    "Beauty is as beauty does; she travels far and well
    Beauty alone goes nowhere far, poorly staying home" (byWinterStarManyRoots)
    HOW does a flagrantly Non-humble person, ask anything humbly?
    To attract partners better than she "hangs out" with now, she must make herself into an attractive partner, not just looks, but for what she can do and manage; most good business people want a partner who can assist their business and social lives for best benefit.

  29. You are suppose to value marriage and marry for mutual sexual attraction have a lot in common and laugh together a lot unconditionally. Work together as a couple with great communication always lean on each other with great support. It's not about the money. It's about being having and loving the one you vowed your heart and soul too.

  30. Lonnie, what *evidence* can you present that would prove you "probably have a broader vocabulary" than I? After all, you know nothing of my education or background, so you couldn't possibly have anything to base your opinion on other than wishful thinking. Furthermore, I didn't notice any hint of logophilia in your post, but — just for the fun of it — let's say that your personal lexicon is greater than mine. What relevance would that have to my comment or yours? I never stated that "the amount of money in someone's pocket indicates intelligence," nor did I suggest it. It is obvious that whoever penned this "pretty girl" reply did not have a firm grasp of English syntax, else he would not have written a grammatically incorrect sentence like "make yourself to become a rich person." I don't know how many CEO's you have come in contact with, but I can assure you that financial "movers and shakers" are generally well educated, well spoken, and well written. (Of course there are plenty of intelligent poor people in this world, BUT THAT WAS NEVER MY POINT. Please reread my original post if you need to refresh your memory on what I actually wrote because you're chasing a "rabbit trail" trying to assign to me a comment which was neither made nor implied.) If you want the real scoop on what was originally a Craigslist ad, go to snopes.com, which checked the validity of this document. Here's an excerpt from the article: "A response entitled "The Answer" which was circulated in e-mail and on blogs and message boards along with a text copy of the CRAIGSLIST POST apparently began as an e-mail rejoinder PENNED BY ANOTHER ANONYMOUS PARTY. We saw this component ATTRIBUTED TO FOUR DIFFERENT FELLOWS identified as working in the financial field in New York. One of them, an investment banker with J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., was fingered more often than the others as the most likely author. HIS FIRM, HOWEVER, DENIED THAT THE BANKER SO NAMED … (who did indeed work for that entity) DID ANYTHING MORE THAN FORWARD THE MESSAGE TO FRIENDS, AN ACT THAT INSERTED HIS SIGNATURE BLOCK INTO THE FRAY AND CAUSED SOME TO TAKE HIM FOR THE ORIGINATOR OF THE PIECE."

  31. Timothy Raybon wow, didin't know that you knew Ms Hathaway personally, although most of your rant seems to be info from the multi-media scources (video and print), so, good for you, reading all you can at the check-out counter of your local grocery store, and watching TMZ. By the way, no one but You should be telling your kids "what is normal behavior"-don't blame the media outlets-try parenting!!…
    This aside, the young lady in the article does seem misguided by her own desire to be an "arm-charm" but, she is not too far off; most wealthy men want that anyway (i.e. Donald Trump-as the wife gets old, trade her in, (regardless of what YOU look like…)) I see it all the time, where I work (Las Vegas). Young ladies, dressed in fairly skimpy outfits, looking to "hook up" with wealthy men, or those they perceive to be (wealthy) offering good looks for a monetary trade, thru dating service? rings more true to "prostitution" that "dating"…..Having self esteem will guide any young lady to a better life with a good man, so take the time now, and teach your girls to be strong and independent. The "good men" out there will like that far better than looks!!!

  32. Yolan, you just did the exact same thing. You are criticizing Timothy and you don't know him personally. Anyone with half a brain knows that celebrities are full of themselves. I'm not sure how this got to Anne Hathaway considering this isn't a picture of her. Everyone should try sticking to the subject instead of posting snarky, rude comments. Timothy is allowed to have his opinion just like you are. That being said, stick to the subject.

  33. I must say with a name like mien. I've used my pen way more times than going out on dates. After reading this Ill be investing in J.P. Morgan. After all Andrew Carnegie sold a steel mill to J.P.Morgan for 480 mill. USS has been around for over 100 yrs.

  34. Although the reply was funny (it would have been funnier with a lease with option to buy and maximum miles allowed per year) it was definitely NOT written by any CEO. Look at the errors in grammar. But just a question – PRE NUP????? Does anyone believe a man of means will NOT protect his assets? Shall we call Mr. Trump for his opinion?

  35. the reason those plain looking women as she puts it have husbands with a lot of money is they have a personality, they are not as shallow as you are and are great in Bed. you my dear are a common Golddigger,

  36. Or, … it could be that the whole thing is just an "article" for people to read and discuss – that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

  38. Well, this is a joke or satire. There are lots of rich fools who are ugly as hell or old as dirt and look for young pretty girls. As for this whole thing, let me say whatever your status in life, love for the right reasons and you will never be unhappy or poor.

  39. Andrea Faith Cantrell Gay rights aren't a bad thing, Andrea. Anyone who implies that it's a bad idea to give other human beings rights to be treated with respect and dignity can't be that good of a person. If you want to get onto Yolan for making rude comments, why didn't you say anything to Timothy? Oh, it's because he complimented you, so because he ingratiated himself to you by sucking up, he gets a pass for his homophobia. Either that, or you're homophobic yourself and agree with him, and don't see his inexcusable behavior as horrific.

  40. Megan, I fail to see what this has to do with gay rights. I don't give a shit about that personally. I don't believe homosexuality is right but have gay friends who I love. Stick to the subject or scroll sweetheart. Not once did I mention it. Timothy and the person who was rude to him both have the rights to their own opinion. Not that it changes mine. Him complimenting me has nothing to do with my view on homos.

  41. Beautiful response. Although, it seems like the CEO would spellcheck lol;-) jk. This is so true though. All these young girls think they can hook a rich guy by their looks. Everyone gets old. My suggestion is to first, learn to appreciate a man for more than money, second, learn how to treat and touch a man. Lol this is too funny! Good for him!!!!

  42. Andrea Faith Cantrell Timothy said: " She is the epitome of everything wrong in this open minded,let's give gay people not only equal rights but special rights, society that we live in. I'm sick and tired of women like this being forced down our throats and telling our children that this behavior is "normal" "

    How is that NOT about gay rights? He brought it up himself. Once again, you're proving yourself to be a hypocrite and telling people to do things you don't tell Timothy to do, because he kissed your ass and complimented you, so he gets a pass while you tell everyone else what to do.

    Don't call me "Sweetheart". You and I are NOT friends, and it's condescending and unwelcome familiarity that you don't deserve to take with me after your behavior here.

    Being homophobic isn't an opinion. It's a way of life that actively contributes to the fact that LGBT youth are EIGHT TIMES more likely to attempt suicide than non LGBT youths, and the FACT that there are 200k homeless LGBT kids on the streets today, because they were thrown out of their homes by their homophobic parents.

    Being homophobic is inexcusable, and Timothy gets a pass from you because he kissed your ass. Why don't you tell HIM to stick to the topic, why don't you tell HIM to not be rude? The fact that you yourself admitted to "Not give a shit" about human rights tells me just how bad of a person you are.

  43. Well, this is a joke or satire. There are lots of rich fools who are ugly as hell or old as dirt and look for young pretty girls. As for this whole thing, let me say whatever your status in life, love for the right reasons and you will never be unhappy or poor.

  44. Timothy Raybon wow didn't know you personally know Anne. I wonder if Anne's husband has the same opinion as you do.

  45. Megan, it was meant as condescending so you are at least smart enough to get that. I don't give a shit what you think about gay rights. I don't give a shit what Timothy thinks about gays too. Like I said, if you're intelligent enough to comment on the article at hand, by all means say something. Otherwise, you're showing your immaturity. My feelings on the actual article still stand. You're like a two year old throwing a tantrum looking for a fight, you won't get one from me about homosexuals cause I just don't care.

  46. Can't say it enough people….it's not Anne Hathaway so your arguments are pointless. One word:ARTICLE….

  47. "The following is what a women "

    womEn is plural; meaning more than one
    womAn is singular; meaning one

    Correct spelling: "The following is what a womAn posted on a dating forum seeking a rich husband:"
    Incorrect spelling: What you wrote at the beginning of this article

  48. Well, this is a joke or satire. There are lots of rich fools who are ugly as hell or old as dirt and look for young pretty girls. As for this whole thing, let me say whatever your status in life, love for the right reasons and you will never be unhappy or poor.

  49. Lady you are not that pretty, there are more beautiful ladies than you who will take the responsibility of becoming a loving wife and family. As for your looks, from your face its okey not great, how about the middle part, your flat chested maybe hairy armpits, and from the waist down, your are bony. Not so great looking now is it?
    Maybe your only last chance is to wait until you hit old age and marry a younger man with freckled and buckeyed teeth and crossed eyed

  50. I don't know if I would take advice from J.P. Morgan, they went belly up and had to get money from the big government bail out because they made to many other bad decisions!

  51. Most probably a cold fish as she is too in love with herself to actually love a spouse. She is looking for a sugar daddy, not a spouse. If she is hot, she will cheat the first chance she gets. Females like her are a dime a dozen. many of the try acting & never get farther than the casting couch or porno flicks. Many don’t even have enough talent to make it there either.
