... but everytime I feel like I'm totally clueless, along comes a priceless quote like this one, which makes me feel better (from an article on MSN about money and dating):
"My current boyfriend pays for everything and I think I make more $ than he does, but I like it that way because it feels romantic, caring and chivalrous. Dating a man without money is really tough because you end up paying for everything and that wears on you after awhile."
This, my friends, is an example of someone who is well-practiced in entirely missing the point. :-)
