Yes marrying a guy with power, wealth and influence is a fast track to gaining power, wealth and influence without having to work for it.
Climbing to the top of the social ladder in one easy step.

Hmmm... I'm Jewish. It's not that we desire a powerful men per se. We admire men who are smart. Intellect is an aphrodisiac, and I can't be with a man I don't admire intellectually. Jewish families value a good education, it's usually #1 on parents list of what they prioritize for their children. Because we've been so persecuted, education is the one thing no one can take away from us.

As usually smart men also do well career-wise... people get the impression we care about power. Well that's at least how I see it. Of course the entitled vapid JAPs also do exist out there.

Italian and Jewish women are an example...The more attractive they are the more powerful a guy they desire..

Eh....I dunno.....

OK...I'll concede that they place a high priority on intellect, but then there are plenty of intelligent and well schooled men/people that can't figure out how to turn that into money/income...I don't see many Jewish women(at least the higher quality ones, anyway) that will settle for that type of guy...'

Would you be happy with that type of guy??

Alright maybe you got me here. I wouldn't be with a man that makes less than I do i.e. But, it doesn't mean they have to be mega powerful as the OP implies. Just average successful. But maybe it has more to do with me and how I studied and made a career for myself than anything else. Basically I want someone who has a career and their life together.

Just for the record, I would NEVER be with a successful man only because they're successful. Loving them for who they are is priority #1 - personality, intellect, character, morals, etc.

How you handle that attraction is another question entirely, but your post seems to center only on the narrow point of being attracted to powerful men.
Yes, don't buy into the self help books... not everything means we're in some way broken as they claim.

Usually powerful (lol) rich guys cheat on their women so there goes the happiness in the relationship. Everyone uses everyone type of arrangement, lol. Kind of one wants tender love but can't get it from a playboy or playgirl.

It's a feeling...but I can't deny that it's been men of a certain career always. Not so much about money, more about achievements.

And to answer some of the questions, I have never acted upon it...because as much as I do feel attracted, I never do anything with this attraction.

I do feel like it is an issue from my youth, something I have to solve for myself.

Just enjoy your life. Be it with older dudes, or men in power.
As long as no one gets hurt, who the freak gives a hoot.
Its your life, and what you like in your life.
Don't over analyse everything as a good or bad thing.
Go with what you enjoy most in your life, and grow.


But, seriously, do you find D. Trump as a catch ?.
God, please say no..
Mr Hair do, has to be the bottom of the barrel.
