SEC: Socio-economic class
For the first installment, it’s when a rich boy meets the girl…
Rich Boy-Rich Girl
On a country ruled by 1% coming from class AB, this would be a regular thing for the rich kids to be together. We’re in an elitist culture and no wonder if rich boy would want to look for a rich girl. Of course, a rich girl would also want to continue the materialistic security she had during her childhood so she would expectedly look for someone rich.
For kids of business tycoon, it’s the good relationship of two businesses. For kids from the rich schools, it’s the elite couple move.
Advantage: Rich couple
Disadvantage: Small pool of selection
Hard Reality: It’s an elite world
Rich Boy-Normal Girl
Now this is a boring pair to watch. I imagine this as a rich boy touring around the building of his family business meeting a new hire who looks pretty. This has a slight possibility, but a small prerequisite for the woman: she has the potential to be rich. A rich boy would want to date rich girls as a trophy, or as a comfort relationship. Now, to meet up the standards, the woman has to have the potential to succeed, someone he will be proud with even surrounded by his rich friends.
Another alternative is that she has to be beautiful. His rich friends would ask him why he chooses a “regular” girl. Now, let the looks speak for itself.
Advantage: Likely happening and might be common dreams are shared
Disadvantage for the boy: The girl might actually prove to be better than the boy
Disadvantage for the girl: The boy might be toying around
Hard Reality: Proving yourself is more difficult when you are not part of the elite class
Rich Boy-Poor Girl
Now this is real drama.
Name it, the dramas got it!
Sir Chief and Maya would know this feeling. Maria la del Barrio would surely know this.
It’s a big romantic dream that a rich boy would pursue a girl out of her extraordinaire. Pretty, humble, clean and soft-spoken woman is chased by a rich playboy who happens to realize that he is destined to love this girl. Then, the whole world would try to separate them.
Good story, but unlikely to happen. In an elitist society, rich kids do not even look at poor people. There is no interaction. The rich boys would rather be spending the whole night with barkada on the upscale clubs and hook up with the girls there.
If the rich boy would even talk to the poor girl, maybe when the poor girl washes his dishes, or when the girl assists the boy in fitting shoes in a shoe store.
Advantage: A love story to cherish
Disadvantage for the boy: Reputation to rich friends
Disadvantage for the girl: Rich boys’ friends looking down on her
Hard Reality: If you can’t prove yourself, the elite must pity you to help you out, or you are simply extraordinary
