There are a lot of great things to do that cost little to no money. I don’t want to believe that just because I’m broke right now I can’t date. Dating broke men works if you are a creative dater and have an open mind. Well, it doesn’t make you less valuable a partner if that’s what you’re asking, but dating broke men is not for everyone and it really has to do with full disclosure and honesty.
The only drawback is the financial sacrifice you have to make in the mean time.
I think it’s great that you are taking this opportunity to better yourself.
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 shit 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.
Call me crazy, but I’ve dated enough broke dudes and I’m not doing it anymore! I’m all for feminism and strong women and I support role reversal and all that. I cannot emphasize enough what a huge turn-off it is when a guy can’t afford to go do anything. I don’t want to go blow hundreds of dollars at a a club, but I do want to experience the world around me. If our dating life consists of cooking ramen and watching TV all the time, I’m going to be out the door before you even notice I’m gone. Man up and go get a job somewhere, anywhere, so that you can take care of yourself. I’ve been doing it for several years now, and busting my ass to make it in a very expensive city. I want a life full of adventure and someone who can accompany me for the ride. I’m saving all my extra money to travel and experience new things, because that’s something I’ve always wanted to do.
He doesn’t have to be rich, but he can’t be a deadbeat. It’s just that I don’t make enough to support us both. I do know what it’s like to have barely enough money to get by. If I’m with someone who isn’t down to do the same, it simply won’t work out.Too much money makes me uncomfortable, but no money makes me frustrated. I don’t want someone who spends his days sitting on the couch smoking weed and watching sports while bemoaning his lack of funds. I don’t want to be with any more guys who make less money than I do. I’m into doing so inexpensively, but if you can’t even cover your own rent… If he’s broke in his 30s, I worry about his motivation in all areas. What do you do if you are a guy and you are going through a rough time financially yet still want to date? Since traditionally men are the ones that pay for dates you are out of luck … In all honesty many women won’t want to date you, but some won’t care. It really depends where they are in their life and what they are looking for. The important thing is to not pretend to be someone you’re not and end up doing the dishes at a restaurant because your credit card was declined! What is NOT OK are lazy guys who don’t want to work and use women financially. If you are the broke one you need to be honest about your financial status before you go any further. Be open and honest and you never know, you might just find the girl you’ve been waiting for your whole life who you know wants you for you!! It’s not that I’m lazy or unwilling to work, but I lost my job and I’m using this opportunity to go back to school. Some ideas include: However, these things will only take you so far.
