Okay, I have a serious problem. How does one write a rich kid without that person sounding spoiled, yet letting them complain about things? Specifically, in this case a rival in love for a girl. How do I write a person like this, who because of immense wealth could have anything, without them sounding like a whiny person who deserves no sympathy? I just could never sympathize with rich characters in the past, and this has cropped up once again. However, it's so integral to the plot that he has to be wealthy. Also, his rival is an incredibly poor person, and I have the opposite feeling towards characters in total poverty. Now, the plot extends greatly beyond these two character's rivarely over a girl, later they'll hurt each other in ways that include killing siblings and significant others so by then they should be more sympathetic. Anyway, I hope I myself don't come off like a whiny rich kid, and that there is a way you guys can help.
