There's a retired executive who lives not far from me. He's worth more than $50 mil, if not into 9 figures. His house is amazing. Everyone who knows him says he's brilliant. He is in his late 70's and he's gay. He has a boyfriend who is around 50. They've been together for about 15 years.
I was telling this story to a friend, and I wondered out loud, "Does the boyfriend really love him or is it just about the money?"
"Of course it's for the money," my friend shot back.
I've been reading this post at OneStep at aTime about his meeting with a high powered lawyer in Toronto. It seems like it was the most engaging meeting he has ever had with a guy. However, no sex because the guy was in horrible shape. But that makes it all the more interesting. He stayed talking to the guy even though he was not at all attracted (in this case he was actually repulsed). This got me thinking.
I haven't dated older guys. I met one older guy last year but nothing happened. Maybe I should try again.
Is money and power attractive? A draw? I would never date a guy just because he's wealthy. I'm not desperate for money, and I want to keep my own self-respect. I can see myself being drawn to a powerful man, but money doesn't make my cock hard. The reality is that any wealthy, powerful man who is in reasonable shape is probably shopping for a hot younger guy.
