Whoever says money can't make you happy is a complete whack that deserves a slap on each cheek. Everything, including basic needs such as water, electricity, shelter, clothes, medicine and food, has a price. Considering how polluted it is nowadays, you can't fully rely on natural resources anymore (in terms of food and water at least), unless you want to risk getting sick. And when you get sick, you need big money to pay for hospital fees. Heck, bringing a newborn baby into this world has a price, too.
And you know what sucks even more? I think girls (more often than not) are pushed to spend more than boys. Since we're innately insecure beings, we always have to make sure that we look good because 1) looking good makes us feel good; and 2) single or taken, we have to look good for the opposite sex-- otherwise, guys just won't notice us, or our significant other will spot hotter girls. (Idiots). No matter how much you say inner beauty is more important, people still judge the first thing that they see. When they're interested in how you look like, then they'll make an effort to see if you're beautiful on the inside, too.
And besides, if you plan on having babies, might as well make sure your offspring gets gorgeous genes. You wouldn't want your child to suffer now, would you?
As a woman, you have to make sure got pretty clothes on you. Shirts, camisoles, lingerie, blouses, tube tops, dresses for every occasion (romantic dinners, clubs, day dates, work and meetings, etc), jeans, shorts, skirts, necklaces, belts, necklaces, hats, headbands, flats, high heels, jackets, sandals, bangles, bags... By golly, the list goes on and on/ Plus, you have to set a budget for waxing or laser services for hair removal. And regular hair trims and manicures and pedicures and facials.
Guys just put on a shirt or polo and jeans and shoes, maybe a little bracelet, anklet, watch, cap or whatever, spray perfume and work out to keep that hot body tight.
So. Not. Fair.
