I was reading a magazine while waiting for lunch today, and this question arose, with results saying 57% said yes and 43% no. I mean usually we would see people saying no, as most regard love as one of the most important factors of life, but these results were pretty close, meaning, there are obviously alot of people out there who will speak their mind and take the cash.

Really, there is not right or wrong answer yes? I mean it depends entirely on the individual, love might not mean alot to them, or they havent felt it as much as others, and a million dollars could be far more beneficial to them, there are alot of factors that vary.

I would just like to see how close the results are here.

EDIT: I meant the love between two partners, not the love of family, pets or other objects.

I have experienced periods of my life where I have lived with barely any money to my name; money to me is worthless. Having said that, I have lived with hardly any funds to my name more than I have had love in my life. I would never give up something as material as financial gain for someone who makes me happy and makes me have some sort of purpose in life.

Yeah I would take the million, as long as like you said I could still love family, pets, music and stuff.

Just have to get used having only your hands for rest of your life (if you know what I mean).

I did. Metal is my partner. It's there for me when I wake up, When I get home, sexually pleases me, gets me through the good and bad times....Metal is the best partner.





But on a serious note it's kind of a dumb question. Would you give up love for a million dollars? You can't put a price on beliefs or natural feelings nor will you be able to give them up for some object.
I understand what the question is trying to ask but it logically makes absolutely no sense. Goes back to the question...."Do you BELIEVE in love?" Well do you? I also believe that Jesus is a mythical creature but yet again that's my belief.

Great to see how is your love with metal.

I dont understand the second past, guessing you meant the question is too imaginary ?

after few years now my choice still no change, at the moment Im still alive even still good, so if having 1 millions of addition to my finance, well nothing will change much. IMO 1 Millions is good for only when you in need of big amount of money alarmingly,... otherwise eating more good foods playing thousand of computer games, going hundred of party still leads to being bored and overwhelm nauseatingly : (

Just that the question logically doesn't make sense. There really isn't a way that you can give up love unless you get a lobotomy.

Yes, yes and yes. With a million dollars i probably will find another lover altogether plus have a fatter bank account.
I find the idea of love very funny, if i stay in kenya, i'll meet some girl someday and we'll fall in the love, same will happen if i were to go live in canada,iraq, china, senegal or whatever other place. So id give it up, spend about $2000 to forget the girl i gave up on koz of money.


I think you misunderstand what love actually is, especially being so young. The original post was referring to emotional, intimate, committed love, not just 'having a girlfriend' love where saying goodbye is not a huge deal. In other words, it's more complicated than simply giving up and walking away with money.

As long as I don't believe in love, well, I would accept a million dollars.

I'll think about that if I'm actually made that offer. For now, I won't even bother.

Definitely not. No matter how much you have or how much you make, it'll never be enough. I say that because the more money you have, the higher tendency to buy nicer, more expensive things.

I'll use myself as an example (btw I am NOT making 6 figures, just had to put that out there LOL). I have a decent salary now but at the beginning of this year and for the past several years, I didn't (I was in college and figuring out how to live on my own). I was living off of $10k/ year with shitty minimum wage jobs. Now I make more, I got a nicer car and bought myself some nicer things and can go out to eat alot more. All it means is I have bigger bills to pay at the end of the month. Yeah, a million would be nice but I was able to love while living off of minimum wage jobs so I think I'd rather keep the love. It's a nice feeling

Only if you've fallen in love and you have to make a choice. In case you never had someone special, you'll make the decision without a second thought.
