"certain types"? man I don´t know about you but since I don´t need a luxury life and I have everything I need sometimes I have a lot of money to invest, on a bank account, business, with my family, travel. or just to go out and have fun...and I´m single. so if I go to a strip club it´s ok. Pilots talk about pornograph all the time when they/we are not flying...

I know the concept is lost upon most youth in westernised countries, but one can always invest/save, rather than blow their cash. And if my choices were the chicks that have spending requisites you suggested, or the porno mag the other pilots suggest, I'll take the other pilots advice and go with the mag 10 times out of 10.

One thing my wife and I learned was one doesn't have to spend outrageously more on things that don't cost much simply because they have more money.

Or you can make more than enough money to save and invest and spend your own money as you see fit,,, and ignore the advice of those less successful.

ok Priest. but Iīm sure you donīt understand how Aviation works. We have a stressful job with constant pressure especially in South America when we donīt have 1 airport every 5 miles like in USA. so we have a stressful flight with almost zero alternatives and we must do the job at any costs. our "office" is a machine with buttons and noises...and them after the flight we save some money and spend the rest because we can die on the next flight! And Iīm not talking about a remote possibility. Iīm talking about fly at night in the middle of nowhere for 5 hours. you must keep yourself 200% concentrated at all times and if you have any airplaneīs failure and you canīt handle it your dead. end of story and nobody will find your body...so with a Wife or not. Pilots spend some money to relax, to drink, to go to a Strip Club with other Pilots and talk about stupid things, to have a awesome date with a girl, to have a nice fun with your kids. because Pilotīs arenīt sure about the next flight. we can die after the take-off or seconds before touch the runway. We enjoy every second because it may be our last second...Aviation in South America or in Africa isnīt for weak people. this is the hell, this is the place where the dark angels shows their true faces. we enjoy every second, it may be our last second...

Chances are higher of me getting killed in commute than you from flying, it doesn't mean I stupidly blow my cheques as if I'm going to die tomorrow. And here in Canada (where you evidently don't fly to anyways), "having fun with my kids" (most of whom are below the age of puberty) would get you sent to jail for being a pedobear.. you might have better luck in some of the other continents you fly to if that's the age range you wish to mess around with.

Anyhow, general advice is, for people who anticipate living a few years beyond age of consent, consider their future. One can have plenty of fun on Valentine's Day without tearing apart their wallet on crap, and it's common wisdom that tossing flowers and money at someone, especially after just meeting them, will cause them to remember you in this fashion and not bother caring too much about your personality, which looked to be your complaint in your first post.

$500 just isn't all that much money for a romantic evening out. And if it is for you, then do not spend it but do not criticize those who do.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

f1) I Flew in Canada. many people buy Airplanes with Brazilian Registration (PT, PP, PR or PU) and you must have a Brazilian License to fly them back to Brazil or South America. it's called "delivery flight". many and many people do this. fly in Canada, in USA or here is the same. the only diference is that in USA if you have problems you have an airfield 5 or 10 Miles away. in Brazil the next airfield is at least 100NM (Nautical Miles) away and sometimes you canīt reach there...-itīs clear youīre not a Pilot. Pilots donīt ask this type of thing to other Pilots...2) "having fun with my kids". enjoy the time with my nephew. he likes my car (VW Golf) and I let him "drive" it. sometimes he destroys my computer, damage my car or just play X-Plane for hours. if he destroys something I fix it or I buy another one if really necessary. and my boss is nice, always giving toys for him, sometimes he gives very expensive toys for him. but who cares? itīs just money, it comes and goes...3) dude. my sister is a Court Judge here. sheīs that woman that gives (or not) Brazilian VISAS or Citizenships for people from other countries. nuff said. Iīm a well respected Captain and person. nobody needs to ask about me or what I do...4) my money belongs to me and what I do with it itīs my decision. it comes and goes. and girls deserve the best. since my boss pay 50% of my fuel costs (and I use Aviation Gasoline frequently on my car so I pay 4 dollars a US.Gallon) and when Iīm flying I donīt pay anything my month debt is low...5) "my personality" is nice thank you. thats why people like me. Iīm misterious like Darth Vader but Iīm funny like Sebastian Vettel (Formula-1 driver). Iīm just me, relaxed, funny, centered. Iīm spontaneous, I just do. my nephew loves me because Iīm super funny with kids, somehow my nephew likes when I look like Darth Vader :) 6) if youīre single Strip Clubs are nice. Iīm single, I donīt have anything to say or report. my friends an I go there, have some fun, laught a lot and thats it. super funny, super simple. even better when we have a rookie Pilot with us, than we must tell him "how fly those airplanes". hehehe. last time we did it was super duper funny, and our "rookie friend Pilot" enjoyed a lot :) maybe he enjoyed too much LOL! 7) when you have your Wings we talk about planes and Aviation in South America. When you have a "latino" license and speak Spanish or Portuguese 110% fluently in Aviation enviroment then we put you in Congonhas Airport and see what happens...

I´m sorry dude but had YOU checked my salary for the last, errr, 4 years? because You don´t have any idea how much I spend on my own education and courses. including not only English, but also French and Russian because some planes are equiped with Russian Avionics and I must understand them...</p>second, my english may not be perfect here but I speak way better than I write and you never saw me flying in USA or Canada. people who meet "Zara" knows what I can do when I´m flying. and who are you to jugde anything? I bet 1000 dollars you can´t speak Portuguese even on "average level" (without a translator) because people aroung the globe think is similar to spanish but it´s not. it´s a diferent language and we have the Embraer. you know? those planes flying in USA, Canada and many other countries? yes. they´re made here by "portuguese speakers". before being a "N" or a "C" (USA and Canadian "identifications") these planes were "PT", "PP" or "PR" (Brazilian "Identifications"). and to fly HERE you must understand that WE speak English and Portuguese. but a Brazilian Pilot (also Pilots from Portugal) will speak portuguese on our airpace beause it´s our airspace. </p>3rd. girls call me because their boyfriends treat them like trash wile I like to talk and be nice with them. I like be funny and I don´t care if I look stupid but the girls feels nice. because I care about what the girl is feeling. so if I have to pay 500 US dollars (1000BRL) and the girl feels happy I don´t care. it´s just money and the girl is fine, the girl is smiling and if she´s happy thats the point. I treat girls like princess because they deserve, I talk a lot and I listen a lot too. I recognise the girl´s qualities and I make jokes about myself to make the girl happy. and if it ends with sex good, if not also good. I had a nice date with a nice girl. thats the most important thing of all...4th) so you enjoy be racist against people without 110% english grammar? or it´s because I´m "latino"? oh yeah South America sucks compared with the rest of the world eh? yeah. but I´m proud to speak one of the hardest languages on earth, I´m proud because my country have the "Biofuel Tecnology" since 1970s and it´s so commom here that we don´t say "OMG. we´re using Etanol or Biodiesel. we´re saving the planet". we have FlexFuel cars since 1980s, our cars can run with all types of gasoline and Etanol and we don´t say "OMG. I´m driving a hybrid/flexfuel car. I´m saving the world". only now the world is learning with US how use these tecnologies. I´m proud because we have one of the best Pilots skills on earth. every country on this planet recognise that Brazilian Aviators can do a lot of things with low resources. When I fly in USA the americans recognise that the "portuguese speaker" there flies in the jungle, in the Brazilian Jungle. I speak 3 languages (simultaneously) on Aviation Enviroment. I´m from the land of Alberto Santos Dumont. 1st in flight, father of Aviation. and the entire world knows it...enjoy your own racism dude.

Why? I also invested and put money into businesses and saving.

I had my first home one year out of university and I had no debt. Did fine.


That money simply would be more productive elsewhere. It's frivolous spending plain and simple. That you can more easily afford to spend it does not make it less frivolous, just more affordable to do so.

Like I said, it's certainly your prerogative if you have the funds. Doesn't make it less frivolous though. And personally I wouldn't want to date the type of women who expect $500 dates every time we go out. YMMV.

You may consider it frivolous, but it is not your money. The person spending the money may not consider its to be so.

I have dated women and spent in excess of $500 on a date and I have spent less. And it is not every date that costs $500. In the case of Valentine's Day it is a once a year event.

I enjoy spending excess money on random dates for once-a-year days because I can.

I never said it was my money.

It IS frivolous. You can not argue that. It's a complete luxury and not remotely necessary to spend that much money on a date. That you choose to and can afford to is your prerogative but to deny that it's frivolous is ridiculous. You certainly have the freedom to spend it but that does not make it less frivolous.

Whether you were to invest that money, donate it to charity or any number of more productive endeavors, that money would be put to far better and more productive use. I'm not saying you can't or shouldn't do it, just don't don't try and act like it's not completely irresponsible spending. Irresponsibility is fun some times, so knock yourself out!

I enjoy those things as well. But one, two of those are frivolous and two, you do not need to spend $500 to enjoy any of them.

Hobbies tend to be "frivolous"...

Oh no wait I recall now... The saying is "Food, shelter and $150 bottles of wine and other fun hobbies" :rolleyes:

I spent 12.99 on her favourite flowers (potted so they'd last) in her favourite colour on the 16th. The surprise and happiness she had from me getting one thing that was in itself very special and lasting showed me that it meant more to her than if I had just thrown money around and showered her with gifts/dinners/expensive wines. (not that I could have anyways, work kept us both apart on the 14th)


tl;dr moral: spending lots of money may lead to a good time, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you care, or if they care if you care.
