Can there be love without money?
Love is a beautiful thing is what I heard people say while growing whereas the journey of love has taken people through the road of thorns not because they aren't good enough or they are going on that path blindly but because we all have different perspectives about love.
With my little experience in the world, I realize that love can't be perfect and to maintain it, the parties involved must be ready to endure one another imperfections. To some people, it is about money, affection, care, beauty, sex life, and others. Everyone has a reason for going into a relationship and what makes it complicated is that we can only know what we want; it is sometimes hard to know the intentions of the other person involved.
Let quickly read this short stories before going into the topic properly.
Kolade is a rich guy, he made his first millionaire at the of twenty and he utilized it well. He is 30 now and he is among the most successful under 40 CEO out there, he is every lady's crush. The only thing he hasn't been successful with is his relationship, it doesn't take long before he discovers that he is just a cube of sugar that every ant wants to have a taste of whenever he gets into a new relationship.
There is another version of Kolade, I mean the poor Kolade. He has got everything needed to be a perfect lover except money, he is broke. He has met ladies who were committed to him but they ended up becoming someone else wife because he doesn't have what it takes to keep his love intact.
This is the reality whether you accept it or not, I believe we all ought to know how the world operates. When you are rich, you become every opposite gender target. It is not restricted to any gender, I have seen guys who chase after ladies because of money so this isn't about females chasing after rich guys.
I have seen someone claim that money is not loved but they can't endure suffering for a month and I don't blame them because at this age and time we are, who wants to suffer?
My belief is that money can do a lot of things but it can as well not do some things and buying love is one of them, money can make people pretend to love you but it can't buy love. The good news is that people who pretend to love you because of money can eventually build love with time. I don't know how they do it but it is happening, I have met someone who said she developed the love with time.
On the other hand, true love needs money as well. Love is beautiful when money is involved, it doesn't have to be hundreds of millions. You need money to look good, to go on dates, for vacations, to buy gifts, you need money to take your relationship to the next level.
Money and love work together, I think it only becomes a bad thing when we make it the reason for going into a relationship.
Love can't be bought and just like respect, you can force it on people. It has to happen naturally, it is a feeling that grows for many reasons when it is genuine.
It is good when you let people love you for who you are and I don't believe love happens at once, the feelings have to be nurtured gradually to the point where you are sure of what you really want.
