Still, I had particular problems dating other people in the same field as me because my competitive instincts came out, and if a guy hadn’t approached things exactly the same way that I had, then I had respect issues. Do you respect the person you’re dating and his or her career choices?And I think that brings us to the first topic: – Respect. Does a career that pays less, or requires less time, rate lower in your eyes? If you find yourself rolling your eyes when he explains things to you about his career or his job, it may be time to move on.The survey, sponsored by dating site "It's Just Lunch" surveyed 925 single women and found that only 4 percent of respondents answered "of course" when asked whether they would go out with an unemployed man, while the other 21 percent said "Yes" but were curious to see how the men were doing in the meantime."Not having a job will definitely make it harder for men to date someone they don't already know," Irene La Cota, spokesperson for "It's Just Lunch" said in a statement.
I know that outside of office romances, the subject of dating has not really been broached, but I think so many of the corporette-readers probably have had one of these two issues.
I’ve been dating someone for a couple months now and, like a lot of people, he is experiencing financial difficulties.
He just recently began sharing these financial problems with me and I know it’s the reason why he’s been asking me out less than when we first started dating.
I am totally freaking out – as I said he is a nice guy, so am I walking away from a good thing just because I find the stability (financial being one of many) and consistency (he seems unable to commit, complete or stick to anything) missing in his character? He has his summers off, a pension, and is home before 5pm every day.
I did discuss my concern with him – saying that we could still see each other and get to know one another on a friendship level (nothing physical has happened on our 4 dates) and once he has found his stability in his work/career we can go from there.
I decided to get back into the dating world and I met this guy online – four weeks ago. But a big worry for me is that is has absolutely no stability or consistency in his life. The teacher is the man who married my Georgetown law educated cousin.
I am a 30-year old entrepreneur with my own online fashion store…soon to open my first physical boutique. The user-interface guy is the man who married my Duke educated sister. You need a man who makes you feel safe, heard, and understood. He’s incredibly sweet and generous to me and almost too into me (we have known each other for a while as friends and he’s recently been pushing for a sexual/exclusive relationship), hard working at his very low paying job that makes him happy, but only really has ambitions to make maybe 30K a year or lower and he’d be content with that.
On the flip side — do you think he respects what you do, and the time required for it? (I always hear stories of women “hiding shopping bags,” in some cases so their significant others won’t realize how much money they have to spend on frivolous things.
Those stories always make me a bit sad — you shouldn’t feel like you have to hide something from a person you’re serious about, and certainly not from a true partner.) – Lifestyle.
He enjoys his government job, loves playing sports, going hiking and spending time with his German Shepherd. Should someone’s financial stability be a deal breaker?
He’s looking for a woman who is outgoing and philosophical. In an age where people enter serious relationships with more financial baggage and where you can curate online dating profiles based on spending habits, financial experts argue that money matters when it comes to love.
