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.

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.
