am conviced that most ladies dont fall in love but instead are materialistic and money-motivated
Ehhh, you might want to steer away from these sweeping generalizations in a forum full of women
In fact generalizations shouldn't be applied anywhere. I think it's good if one is motivated by money. At the very least the person is realistic and comprehends ground realities. Everybody needs money and it's nothing wrong as long as you're not killing or breaking bones.
I believe most sociologists would argue there is great need for appropriate generalizations in studying the science of societies. They provide foundation for understanding.
If you encounter new people with a “blank slate,” it will take months (or years) of formulating new generalizations and revising them to figure out the people. However, if, for example, someone tells you ahead of time that these are a time-conscious, versatile people, then you have a starting place to work from.
This starting place forms the foundation for understanding a culture that is new to you. All of your experiences filter through the generalizations, and you then build your understanding off of them.
In contrast to your statement, however, I do NOT
believe there is “nothing wrong” with getting money in any way that doesn’t involve “killing or breaking bones.” I believe the very definition of exchanging sex for money is defined as “wrong” by our society.
