money or love

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
they were asking this question on the radio this morning so thought i would share.

you've been given a choice:

1. £1 million

or

2. meeting your partner for life, your soulmate, the "one" (if you already have this person you would have to give them up if you took the money)

which would you choose?

    Love. I could be living in a derelict house with debts and working long hours but if I were with the man I love, I'd still be the happiest woman alive.

    for me it would def have to be the soulmate/love option, as Hunnypot said
    I could be living in a derelict house with debts and working long hours but if I were with the man I love, I'd still be the happiest woman alive.

    hmmm

    i dont know, a million would make me happy short term because have too many debts and could move out and be independent and afford to go to bloody uni!

    but the soulmate thing is so tempting

    id say id take the money cus ive got friends and friends and my sister mean more to me than any bloke ever could, my love life aint perfect and i doubt the fella ive got now is my life partner but im happy with that so...

    show me the money!

    :chin: heh, that is interesting. everyone on the radio yesterday said money! in fact one guy even said he would get rid of his wife for a million pounds - hehe!

    i would choose love too.

    but I'm going to earn my millions myself anyway!

    ...

    I have to say I am in the same boat as Sir Cum...

    Gimme the money!

    I have been in love and half the time it is more hassle than it is worth! I would rather have the money and generally enjoy myself with it!

    Yeah - and I am not really a believer in "The One" type thing...

    Difficult one, but at the end of the day I'd rather have love. Surely that's what makes us human?

    I disagree, i love my fella comepletly!!! :heart: but i know deep down hes not the one and were not soulmates but im still really happy with him, and if i were working long hours, living in a derelict house, with debts worrying me constantly etc etc i wouldnt be happy because i wouldnt get time to spend with the man i love because id be working, wouldnt have the money to go out with friends occasionialy, or the money to relax and be happy and enjoy being with my partner.

    'Sfunny, it's nearly all boys who have said money, and nearly all girls who have said love :) And I'm gonna continue the trend by saying love.

    Love, easily. Never had it and I've never been that keen on making pots of money.

    Money is tempting, you ive had boyfs who werent the man of my dreams but I was happy with them.

    I reckon love would probably win though as I will be rich one day :p

    Have you been in love?

    love definitely.

    yeah 1million is niiicce but im only 19 and i don't think i'd want that much money right now! its too much to think about! i got £1000 for my 18th and i didn't even know what to do with that! and it wouldn't suit my situation at uni and i think it would create problems. i'd rather be a poor student like everyoneelse.

    but then again.. would i want to meet 'the one', the person i'm gona marry so soon in my life?? i wana have fun and have more men before i meet him! which brings me to the conclusion that 'the one' is a pile of crap anyway.


    heh :)

    :eek: You don't know what you'd do with £1000?! I could spend that in a flash! I always have lists of things in my head I convince myself that I 'need'! Clothes always seem to be top of the list lol. I'd want to go on holiday, and escape England for 2 weeks!
    *the materialism, tut tut*
    I'd take the money for now, and then when asked again if i'm 30 and haven't met anyone, i'll take love :D
