I'm pretty easily pleased as long as I'm doing it with someone I like being around. I entertain myself pretty easily, and when I'm around someone else, it's twice the fun.
I like money. I like being able to afford things. I don't care for jewelry or bling, or fancy cars (although I will admit I almost got the BMW instead of my Prius when I was car shopping, but finally settled on the Prius) If a guy has a corvette, I'm really not impressed by it if he's a dumbass.
Amy- that's gorgeous. I'd love to go stay at a place like that for a week or so. As of right now, it's just me, so that won't happen for a while.
I like that my extra money has afforded me the ability to get my hair straightened every 4 months, and pay my bills without worry, and put a fat down payment on my car, and get laser hair removal because I hate shaving almost as much as I hate body hair. They're not necessities (aside from bills,) but MAN do they make life easier. I like that I can give my mom a vacation for Mother's Day. I like that my friend can ask if I want to go to Chicago "next weekend" and I have the money to go.
Money can do a lot of things. I think it can bring you happiness. Unless you're one of those people who's easily fooled into thinking certain people like you when they only like what you can do for them. In that case, a fool and his money are soon parted, and yeah, you're going to be left heartbroken somewhere along the line.
Whether you have money or not, you should be able to find "the" person for you, which will make you happy. (note: You should be happy BEFORE finding this person. They should accent your happiness.) Having the money to do what you and "the" person want to do, is extreme happiness.
You can still be happy and NOT have money, but money definitely makes things easier.
