My ex is dating a rich guy

He went to some of the best colleges and grad schools. Just ask his ex-wife—even she wouldn't say a bad word about him.

But you know how it is, the fires dampen, and he wanted a lot of sex—“I'm Italian! ”—and eventually they divorced, and Thurston wanted something, mainly a lot of sex without having to beg for it, and to be found attractive again.

I was in my late twenties, a television producer, and fresh out of a suffocating three-year relationship with a man who drained both my time and my finances when I signed up. Instead, I fantasised about someone older, more sophisticated, more established.

And, if I’m being honest, someone with some money, too.

Thurston Von Moneybags (not his real name) was scammed once by a girl in Houston. She didn't show to the meet, and that's the last time Thurston Von Moneybags ever got hustled again.

He had arranged to meet her so that he might size her up and determine whether he wanted to give her a monthly stipend in exchange for regular sex and sometimes maybe dinner. Was she blonde and blue-eyed, the way he liked them? Now he meets the girls for lunch before he offers them an ahem arrangement, and he is very clear. A thing you should know is that there are very few people to root for in this story.

Well, you could barely keep Thurston on a lat-press machine after that.

He dashed home and did some Googling and found Seeking Arrangement.com, a site built for wealthy (to varying degrees) men who are seeking a formal (to varying degrees) arrangement for sex and (to varying degrees) companionship with someone who in turn is looking for cash and prizes without any drama.The problem is, in my own immodest opinion, I’m a solid competitor in the mating game.I’ve always had an easy rapport with men and have never had any particular trouble attracting or holding their interest.Was she thin “but not anorexic, a shapely body, you know? He doesn't give them money until their second date, when they're in the bedroom, which sometimes feels bad, which sometimes chips away at his this-isn't-prostitution line—Thurston was raised Catholic, after all—but what's the alternative? Which is not to say that old Thurston is a bad guy. Anyway, she asked for money up front, and he sent her 0."When women considered him for a long-term relationship, owning the sports car held no advantage relative to owning an economy car," explained Daniel Beal, an assistant professor of psychology at Rice and a member of the research team.
