I think most people who are superficial like this girl is; where they make their decisions based on what they get out of it, and constantly want their partner to jump thru monetary hoops; all of them are doing it because that's the only way the measure "love" from people.
My daughter's former "mother" was like this lady. The only time Audrey received any affection or praise from this monster was when she dressed Audrey up in "perfect little outfits" and treated her like a clothes-horse. When I first met this woman, she talked more about the way she dressed Audrey in, than about Audrey herself.
To this day, Audrey associates money with love. She doesn't like to do anything that doesn't involve spending money. She simply can't understand the joy of just DOING something, like going to free concerts in the park, or window-shopping, etc.... it takes a lot of effort to 'undo' these damages.
It's really sad.... I really don't understand people like this and it takes a lot of patience to not be a bitch to them; but coming across people like this really makes me want to shit-kick their parents for raising them that way....
