Oh that sucks. It was basically "I'm a hot woman, how come I can't get a boyfriend that makes more than $250k? That won't get me to Central Park West!"

Ok found the full text: ----- FOR MEN MAKING 500,000 OR OVER - A QUESTION FROM A REAL WOMAN What am I doing wrong? Okay, I'm tired of beating around the bush. I'm a beautiful (spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old woman. I'm articulate and classy. I'm not from Los Angeles. I'm looking to get married to a guy who makes at least half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind that a million a year is middle class in the finer parts of Los Angeles, so I don't think I'm overreaching at all. Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives? Could you send me some tips? I've dated a few businessmen and industry people who make average around 200 - 250. But that's where I seem to hit a roadblock. 250,000 won't get me to the finest parts of Bel Air, Hancock Park, Holmby Hills, Malibu, etc. I know a woman in my yoga class who was married to an investment banker and lives in a penthouse on the Wilshire corridor near Westwood/Beverly Hills, and she's not as pretty as I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right? How do I get to her level? Here are my questions specifically: - Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me specifics- bars, restaurants, gyms -What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won't hurt my feelings -Is there an age range I should be targeting (I'm 25)? - Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the westside (Beverly Hills, Century City, Bel Air, Malibu, Brentwood etc.) so plain? I've seen really 'plain jane' boring types who have nothing to offer married to incredibly wealthy guys. I've seen drop dead gorgeous girls in singles bars in Echo Park/Silverlake. What's the story there? - Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows - lawyer, investment banker/finance, doctor, media mogul, famous actors. How much do those guys really make? And where do they hang out? Where do the real bigtime studio exec guys hang out, not just the plane old low level VP's and whatnot? - How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am looking for MARRIAGE ONLY Please hold your insults - I'm putting myself out there in an honest way. Most beautiful women are superficial; at least I'm being up front about it. I wouldn't be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn't able to match them - in looks, culture, sophistication, and keeping a nice home and hearth.

Weird! I didn't look carefully ... this one is from LA, the original was NYC. So the answer to "is this real" is no.
