Lies. You just have the same curse that several of us have: people wanting us for our money and nothing else. If you were an average guy you would have been woo-ing women all over the place. Money certainly don;t buy love. We’re always long overdue, but I’m in. Only if the jazz does not involve me dancing in any way!
Oh I know and it’s such a burden. Good looks, riches, charm; thank goodness we found each other because we’re the only ones who seem to understand the pain that we go through. And clearly that’s what I’d be doing. I’d have to find myself a sugar mama to take care of me so I’d never have to work. Clearly because I’m so great that it would actually happen. Was that enough sarcasm or should I keep going? Believe me when I say that no amount of money in the world is worth more than your love or you. And they’ll be no dancing, just nice, smooth jazz, good scotch, a delicious dinner and some light P.D.A. I miss taking you out on the town and showing of the only sunshine that comes out at night.
Now you’re really fucking with me. No more jokes. We both know I’m the bitch in this couple, so don’t try to deny you’re a saint. And I’d be back eating takeout half the week. Those home-cooked meals are such a burden to eat.
You know, when it warms up we should turn in those workaholic shoes for a weekend and go to our house in the Hamptons.
Hey hey hey, that’s my beautiful girlfriend you’re talking about there, watch it. And I’m no saint, you just happen to see the best in and old man like me. God knows I just hate cooking for the woman I love at the end of the day. It’s just so terrible. But all jokes aside, you read my mind. I’m looking forward to the summer for a number of reasons, but we’re long overdue for a little get away. I say we enjoy a little jazz and dinner tomorrow night to start off us taking it easy for a change, then we can plan out ditching responsibility for the Hamptons. What do you say?

I’ve told you, compliments are not my forte - giving or taking. But, yes, you are very handsome. If you ever can’t ease one of those compliments out of me, remember how you (insanely) think so much of me and know that I would never be with some hideous asshole.
Well thank God for small mercies. I’d hate to be a hideous asshole and a a workaholic I don’t know how you put up with me sometimes. And you wonder why I think so highly of you. You’re insane to deal with me for this long. I’m lucky you love me or I’d be cooking for one, huh?
I thought girls were the ones who liked to stoop to that. Can we just make that an unsaid fact? You know I suck at compliments.
Not always. Besides I like your compliments, even if I have to ease them out of you. They’re a rarity because they actually mean something when coming from you, so I consider it a privilege when I get on.
Yes you do. Don’t pretend you don’t know it.
I’m fishing for compliments. Every guy loves it when a beautiful woman tells them they look handsome.
