The push and pull of our modern love-based thinking sometimes clashes with our history.For example, I know a lot of guys who think that once they start making “serious money,” women will be more interested in them.The men who were judged to be the best-looking had higher rates of divorce.Looking to avoid such a fate, Rochkind started dating a woman who isn’t a bikini model, Carly Spindel, in January 2015. The two met after Spindel’s mother, matchmaker Janis Spindel, scouted Rochkind at a gym.When it came to dating in New York as a 30-something executive in private equity, Dan Rochkind had no problem snagging the city’s most beautiful women.“I could have [anyone] I wanted,” says Rochkind, now 40 and an Upper East Sider with a muscular build and a full head of hair.Inevitably, even if they do start making a lot more, they aren’t any more successful with women.What really makes a difference in their ability to attract a partner are other, ancillary factors that money enables. The author, Ginger, makes the point that money is a definite factor that women should consider when they choose their long-term partners.
