Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"


My love is worth more than that.

"True love because my true love is 5 trillion dollars."- ImOnARush.

Freedom to do what you love.

"I'm gonna be really honest, I'd choose 5 million dollars."

"Having that much money means financial stability."

"It means not having to work for money - that wouldn't mean not working ever again, but doing a job you really love even if it doesn't pay well."

"I would be able to study without worrying about burdening my parents."

"I could achieve my dream of getting multiple degrees."

"Money isn't just money, it's opportunities."

"Without having to worry about money, I could focus on improving myself in every way - getting healthier, studying more, having a stable routine, reading a lot, overall becoming the best version of myself."

"I'll have plenty of time to find true love, improve relationships with friends and family and everything else."- lux_blue.

How much is true love worth.

"Money."

"Love can't pay my bills."- LiteLit.

Money can't buy happiness.

"True love."

"Moneys cool and all, but I'd much rather be in a loving relationship."- WhiskersCleveland.

But money can buy a lot of other things...

"5 mil, I’ll wipe my tears with hundreds."- Weary_Gate7941.

True love...with a rich partner.

"Genuine true love."

"It didn't say my partner and I would be poor."- moonIightbaby.

"The greatest thing, you'll ever learn..."

"True love."

"I have been alone all my life."

"I’ve always had toxic friends because i told myself i deserved it, i told myself 'at least they want to be friends with me'."

"I have a narcissistic mother and a dad that isn’t emotionally there because of his own trauma."

"I have a sister that flat out ignores me when I talk and my other siblings are too young for me to have the kind of bond that i need right now."

"I have an amazing best friend but it’s different than having someone that loves me and i love back."

"If you had asked me a month ago i would’ve said 5 million."

"I would’ve been lying."

"If you had asked a year ago I would’ve said 5 million and I would’ve been telling the truth. true love is priceless."

"I’ll be winning 4 million on the lottery tho."- 76543210987654321.

Some might say being truly, madly in love feels like having five million dollars.

While others might feel that having five million dollars feels even better than being in love.

Others might simply strive for a little bit of each.

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
