Dating unemployed man
Even if men aren’t expected to pay for a date, they feel pressure from women who are looking for someone who is financially stable.” So what do you think?
The research found that women were more concerned with men being "engaged in an activity" rather than having a huge paycheck."Even at my age, 75, and dating if you can believe it if a man is not employed, volunteering, involved in life it's a deal breaker," Patricia Weaver, a 75-year-old film maker said in a statement.
"This is the rare area, compared to other topics we've done surveys on, where women's old-fashioned beliefs about sex roles seem to apply."I know this sounds a bit superficial — like we need a man to have a job so they can shower us with gifts and take us on dates.
But I think whether he can hold down a job tells us more about a man than his net worth.
The Good Men Project recently pondered, what’s a man without money? I’ve never been one to focus on money — my own or someone else’s — or see it as a path to happiness.
Now that I’m at midlife, however, and helping to get two kids through college, hoping to retire one day, and dealing with the never-ending costs of living (my broken clavicle cost me of money, despite my health insurance, and my car appears to have an electrical problem, no doubt a pricey problem, that I need to deal with ASAP), I think about money a wee bit more.
I am fortunate to have a wonderful longtime partner (who, as an educator, knows all about small salaries), but I sometimes wonder what would happen if I lost my job and was looking for love — would I be marriage material (assuming I even wanted to marry again, that is, which I don’t), or even dateable? ); by virtue of my gender alone, yes — I would probably be viable relationship material.
