I mean, can we state the obvious here? Nice guys often end up with nice girls. I don't mean ''nice'' in the euphemistic way but in the sense that you are compassionate, considerate of others, and yeah maybe a little shy.

That seems to hold pretty consistently across the board for all the fantastic men I know. There are very few couples I'm friends with where one is an obvious dick. People tend to attract people like themselves.

So sure, if your goal in life is to get a girlfriend who values money above all else, knock yourself out becoming rich and powerful. For some people that's not even a bad thing, because they will find someone who embraces the thing they value most -- money -- and it can be a good match. Just recognize a lot of people value a lot of different things other than money and if you truly and openly embrace your own values you will probably attract a partner who values those same things.
