I think this is just more honest than what we are used to. People lie to themselves all the time, convince themselves they are in love, because they

Hell, I must admit, I find power and wealth very attractive in a man...I associate them with characteristics like will power, self discipline, force
of character, possessiveness, hard working, focused..... traits that would make a good partner, protector, father of children. That may not always be
reliable, but it gets me softened up subconsciously.
Men get the same way around female beauty, and my husband even tends to think that a beautiful face and body is a sign of a beautiful personality
inside... a compassionate heart and balanced intelligence. (I insist that though it be true in MY case, it is far from reliable too.. :p ) Just being

Almost no one wants to be loved or appreciated purely upon their wealth, nor their beauty, but we get kind of unrealistic when we start to say those
things are worth nothing. Though they might eventually lead to sexual relations, I think it is a mistake to assume that they are never appreciated in
