She said: "I dated a business man who makes average around 200 - 250. But that's where I seem to hit a roadblock. $250,000 won't get me to Central Park West. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind that a million a year is middle class in New York City, so I don't think I'm overreaching at all...[I am]spectacularly beautiful [and] superficial."

He said: "Your looks will fade and my money will likely continue into perpetuity ... in fact, it is very likely that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won't be getting any more beautiful! So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning asset. Let me explain, you're 25 now and will likely stay pretty hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you! It doesn't make good business sense to "buy you" (which is what you're asking) so I'd rather lease."

Thank God they said it on Craigslist because that is awesome. Simply awesome.
