Yes, no hesitation. I'm an anxiety ridden person, and worrying about money causes far more stress than being alone ever could. I'll never be capable of a relationship anyways.

I'd gladly take 20 million dollars for no romantic relationships

i'd travel the world and buy cool stuff, like cars, musical instruments, electronics, etc ...

i'd be pretty content tbh

I make enough money where 20 million more wouldn’t really make me much happier according to studies. We own a house in a high income neighborhood with a great schools. My kids have a college fund that should pay for all their college. My parents have more than enough money to live through retirement. I’m the least successful sibling. So nobody would really need that 20 million.

Forced to being single the rest of my life will make me a lot unhappier.

Losing a stable 2 parent home would make my kids a lot sadder too.

Seeing their son single for the rest of his life would make my parents sadder too.

So easy no for me.

Nope. Money doesn't help loneliness, and I wouldn't give up my family for any amount of money.

I did have a phase when I thought I would be single for life though, so I probably would have taken it then.

As long as you're still allowed to get laid, then sure. I've never met a person that I've enjoyed being around long term. And I say that in regards to both romantic relationships and friendships.

I mean... It's tough cause I'm committed but I would probably do it. As long as casual relationships are fine

Going out to dinner would suck without my partner for sure but I'd get used to it in the comfort of my villa.
 
So many yes replies which is kind of sad but I guess also not surprising when users on here have to post in a thread asking questions relating to basic communication with a woman.
The poll might be more accurate if it differentiated yes between real yes and I am saying yes because I am an adult virgin with no chance of entering a successful relationship anyway lol.

Yes, I will now become the weird guy that takes his body pillow to dates, even to Disney Land. I'm okay with this being my future, if I'm rich as fuck.

good thing the terms here are vague (or non-existant).

I'll do it, but doesnt mention co-habituation, having kids with a "random" lady, supporting your said kids, and whatnot.

So i can be "single" due to the vagueness even if i really am not single. Thanks OP for the 20 mil

While the tropey joke is that marrriage is a horrible thing, stay single! I couldn’t imagine life without my wife, so no deal.

I expected "No Deal" to win by far when I voted on the poll and was shocked to find out it was the opposite.

Then I thought a bit more about this forum and realized, yeah, that was to be expected.

Yeah man. Single being the key word, you don't have to be in a relationship, especially for that kind of money you could never spend up, in normal circumstances.

Single means in general not being tied down to 1 person and you are able to fuck around with people you met,are friends with or if you want to buy time with an escort without having to worry about another persons feelings.
You could do all that obviously too in a relationship but it usually isn't the way to go.

Can even get one of those mentioned possibilities pregnant and pay child support without any problems with that kind of money if you want your seeds to flourish and they obviously want a kid too.

So yes i definitely would do that because i surely won't get exclusive with someone ever because you can't find a logical reason for it if you are able to find plenty of fish in the sea that is willing to jump into your boat for a ride.

*pulls out binding agreement*

'Single' so as defined herein means no romantic relationships of any term; escorts or prostitutes/gigolos excluded as long as conducted as a business transaction in exchange of sexual service (though paying for an intimate relationship in any capacity will count as a violation). However, no committal, romantic partnerships, not even 'going steady', will be permissible. Current relationship(s) would be dissolved, no domestic living arrangements in which a residence is shared eligible for negotiation, and the beneficiary must relocate their own residence at least a sizable city away from the former partner. Besides that, periodic associations and visits are allowed, a la typical post-divorce conditions for married households; however, extensive in-person/face-to-face contact for uninterrupted periods of time will be restricted, and no more than 1000 dollars in USD value may be transferred to the former partner into their own personal account/acquisition per week, although purchases made for the other party is allowed. Other relationships are acceptable within the designated platonic thresholds. Amour amiga! ^^'

Yes.

I have a Very Negative view on how long I'm gonna live for, so I'd put a lot of that money towards wiping away a few issues my friends have. Wipe away medical bills, college debt/fees, cover transition costs, etc etc. Pay for a few holidays with my friends to places we wanna go and just unwind for a while. When I'm back home, I'll probably buy and play a lot of the games I've missed. Maybe I'll commission more art of my characters too so my art friends can eat consistently. From then until I die, I just relax.

Friends are more important to me than lovers tbh so for me there's literally NO downside.
