Dating for broke people
I’m not a gold digger — not one little bit — I’m just sick of this generation of guys, many of whom just can’t seem to get their act together. He doesn’t have to pay for everything, but he should at least cover his half. In fact, I usually prefer it, because I have independence and commitment issues. At the same time, I don’t want to have to pay for both of us all the time. I don’t equate your worth with the size of your paycheck, but you have to HAVE a paycheck.
I don’t think it’s too much to ask for a dude who has a car, a job, and a place to live. It’s depressing dating someone who makes less than I do who has no desire to up his game. We might not be established and working our dreams jobs quite yet, but we should be paying our bills like adults and living outside of our childhood homes. I don’t mind if we switch off, but it should be equal. I’m not sitting on the couch every night because he’s too broke to do anything. There’s no excuse at this point in life for you to be unemployed, unless you just lost both your legs in a terrible freak accident or something. I worked hard, improved my pay, and now I’m living fairly comfortably.
But perhaps, if you are running into women who aren’t interested in dating you due to your financial status, maybe you should work on becoming a bit more stable in that department.Granted, gold-diggers do exist, but every woman who does not desire to “struggle” with a man does not fit into that category. I’m smart enough to know that your intelligence, connections and work ethic—not the type of work that you do—is what truly leads to wealth and success.
