But I've Been Poor, and ...
Let's start with the obvious: The less you're able to take care of yourself, the harder it is to find someone who will accept you into their lives, romantically. I'm not talking about gold diggers or materialistic assholes here, either -- I'm talking about the common sense that scares us away from somebody in a constant state of financial insecurity. Being poor obviously doesn't take you out of the running, but it does make it harder, as you're removing a part of that equation and relying on the rest of you to reel them in. Looks, personality, charisma, etc. Let's face it, you can't pay for dinner with a sweet crotch bulge.

But then you just have the practical matter that if your lover doesn't live in the same town as you, it fucking costs money to get close enough to them to touch their boobs. This comes up all the time now in the Internet age -- like millions of couples, my fiance and I met online and I found out she lived a few states away.
And also, she is a polar bear.
Shit, there was a time in my life when I couldn't even have afforded the webcam or Internet connection to do video chat with her. Bus and train rides are a couple hundred bucks over that distance, on top of sucking days out of your work schedule, and don't even mention flying -- when you're poor, you might as well be suggesting I just buy a helicopter.

But Add in Some Money ...
... and you can simply pay a whore.
Or, in my case, when my fiancee and I decided to live together, it meant her coming to a state where I was the only person she knew. That meant she had no job, which in turn meant I had to support both of us until she got one. That quite simply wouldn't have been possible before we started climbing out of the poverty dungeon.
Careful. Before we left, we shit all over the place.
No, money can't buy you the actual state of being in love. But a lack of money can most certainly fucking prevent it. It can keep you physically separated, and the unfortunate truth is that the overwhelming majority of long distance relationships don't last terribly long, for obvious reasons. So forget the romantic movies, forget the love songs about how no obstacle can stand between us. Bringing us to the same physical location required a shitload of cash.
I understand why those songs and movie plots exist. They're written by people with money to remind other people with money that money can't solve 100 percent of their problems. But they have nothing to say to people like us. Because even if you're a deep, thoughtful soul who appreciates all of the simple pleasures in life, money still fucking matters.

Money is very improtant thing in this world. It is essential to lead a decent life- withouth them you can not buy neccessary things such as food, drink, clothes. But fortune could also make you feel unhappy.
First advantage of having a lot of money is an opportunity to buy things which could make you feel better. If you want to have new shoes, a new mobile phone- you can buy it, that is not problem.
Secondly, you can make your dreams come true. Many people dream about adventures, trips for all they life, but the poor can not afford to go for a journey. The rich can go wherever they want: to Turkey, Greece, USA- they do not have to worry about money.
On the other hand, there a lot of disadvantages of having a lot of money. Firstly, there could be people, who envy you. You could be surrounded by phony people, who could "like" you only because of your money.
Secondly, you can not buy everything. For example: true love. That is a beatiful feeling, which is priceless. You can love someone anly for his character, not for money. Next thing is health. Even if you have a fortune, there are a lot of illnessess, which can not be treated. There is no divide for the poor and the rich- you can not win with dead.
In my opinion money can not buy happiness. You can gain things, which make you feel better only for a moment, not for all live. I think, the true happiness is not for sale.
