Would You Date An Unemployed Man? 75 Percent Of Women Would Not
TEC ^ | 11/25/2013 | Michael Snyder

Posted on 11/25/2013 9:47:02 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Would You Date An Unemployed Man?If you are a man living in America today, to a large degree your value to society is determined by how much money you make. It should not be that way, but that is how our society works. And if you do not have a job at all and you cannot take care of your own family, then almost everyone looks down on you even if it is not your fault. Once you are unemployed, it becomes the number one defining factor in your life. Yes, there are a few people that may look at you in the same way, but in the eyes of most you will now be less of a man. Sadly, this is particularly true when it comes to romantic relationships. Unemployed men tend to have unhappier marriages, they tend to divorce more frequently, and as you will see below approximately 75 percent of all American women do not have any interest in dating unemployed men. Unfortunately for American men, the decline of the U.S. economy in recent years has had a disproportionate impact on them. The past five years have been the worst years for employment for American men in the post-World War II era, and things are only going to get worse from here.

Yes, unemployed women go through similar things. I do not mean to downplay the economic suffering of unemployed women at all. In fact, I write about it quite frequently.

Today, however, I want to focus on how the steadily declining U.S. economy is affecting men. If you are a single man and you are unemployed, that automatically means that most single women will not be interested in you at all. At least that is what one very shocking survey discovered...

Of the 925 single women surveyed, 75 percent said they'd have a problem with dating someone without a job. Only 4 percent of respondents asked whether they would go out with an unemployed man answered "of course."

"Not having a job will definitely make it harder for men to date someone they don't already know," Irene LaCota, a spokesperson for It's Just Lunch, said in a press release. "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."

So what would happen if things were reversed and that same question was asked to men?

Well, it turns out that there is a big difference.

When men were asked that exact same question, the results were absolutely startling...

On the other hand, the prospect of dating an unemployed woman was not a problem for nearly two-thirds of men. In fact, 19 percent of men said they had no reservations and 46 percent of men said they were positive they would date an unemployed woman.

Perhaps traditional gender roles are not quite as dead as many people believe that they are.

And as I mentioned earlier, the declining economy is hitting men even harder than it is hitting women. Yes, millions upon millions of women are deeply suffering in this economy. There is no doubt about that. But men are actually having an even more difficult time than women are.

The following are 12 signs that the decline of the U.S. economy is having a disproportionate impact on men...

#1 The labor force participation rate for men is now at an all-time low...

Men - Labor Force Participation Rate

#2 During the last recession, men lost twice as many jobs as women did. All of the jobs that women in the United States lost during the last recession have been regained, but only about 70 percent of the jobs that men lost during the last recession have been regained. Meanwhile, the size of the overall population continues to grow rapidly.

#3 The inactivity rate for men has risen even higher since the end of the last recession and is now hovering near an all-time record high...

Inactivity Rate Men

#4 Since 2010, about a million construction workers have either been forced to switch industries or have disappeared from the labor force entirely. This has had a disproportionate impact on men.

#5 Back in the 1950s, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Just before the last recession, about 70 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, only 64 percent of all men in the United States have jobs...

Employment-Population Ratio Men

#6 Back in the 1980s, more than 20 percent of the jobs in the United States were manufacturing jobs. Today, only about 9 percent of the jobs in the United States are manufacturing jobs. This has had a disproportionate impact on men.

#7 According to the Economic Policy Institute, the U.S. economy loses 9,000 jobs for every 1 billion dollars of goods that are imported. A disproportionate percentage of those job losses tend to come from male-dominated industries such as manufacturing. Since 1975, the United States has run a total trade deficit with the rest of the world of more than 8 trillion dollars, and right now there are more than 102 million working age Americans that do not have a job.

#8 Between 1969 and 2009, the median wages earned by American men between the ages of 30 and 50 dropped by 27 percent after you account for inflation.

#9 According to the Economic Policy Institute, the "real entry-level hourly wage for men who recently graduated from high school" has declined from $15.64 in 1979 to $11.68 today.

#10 Thanks to Obama administration policies which are systematically killing off small businesses in the United States, the percentage of self-employed Americans is at an all-time low today. This has had a disproportionate impact on men.

#11 According to CNN, American men in the 25 to 34-year-old age bracket are nearly twice as likely to live with their parents as women the same age are.

#12 According to Time Magazine, unemployed men are significantly more likely to get divorced than employed men are.

When a man cannot take care of his own family, it can be absolutely soul crushing. Though many would like to deny this, the truth is that men are still considered to be the primary breadwinners in society today. When a man finds that he cannot provide what his family needs no matter how hard he tries, it can be really easy to descend into a spiral of despair, depression and self-pity.

Unfortunately, the U.S. economy is not producing nearly enough jobs for everyone anymore and it never will again. Meanwhile, the quality of our jobs continues to decline at a staggering pace.

What all of this means is that the number of Americans living in poverty is going to continue to grow, and there will be lots more men that feel worthless because they can't provide for their families.

The following is one example of a single dad that is forced to turn to the government for assistance because he cannot provide for his children on his own...

It means Lyman Curtis, single dad of five kids, will only be able to reliably heat his home in Dexter, Maine, for the first half of this winter, maybe through February.

After that, Curtis will drive to the local gas station to buy kerosene oil in 5-gallon increments -- all he can afford to buy at one time.

"I know a lot of people who do it that way, because there's just not enough money to heat your home and pay for groceries in your everyday life," said Curtis, 38, who is the primary caregiver for his kids and relies on disability benefits and food stamps to survive.

Nobody should ever look down on someone like Lyman Curtis. He is doing the best that he can.

At this point our economy is kind of like a very twisted game of musical chairs. If your family is doing well at the moment, you should not be too complacent because the next time the music stops you might be the one that loses a job.

In recent years, millions upon millions of Americans have lost good jobs, and in most cases it was due to forces beyond their control.

And as the economy continues to deteriorate, Americans are going to become even more angry and even more frustrated. In fact, one recent survey found that 60 percent of all Americans "report feeling angry or irritable".

But we have not even reached the next major wave of the economic collapse yet.

How "angry" and "irritable" will people feel once millions more Americans lose their jobs?

That is something to think about.

So what do you think about all of this?

What do you think about the fact that most women would not even consider dating an unemployed man?

The only ‘woman’ that would knowingly ‘date’ an unemployed man is a woman on TANF, WICs, EITC, Section 8, SSDI, SSI, SNAP, ObamaPhone, electricity assistance, water assistance, Church food bank program, or other government entitlement.

In this case, the purpose is to father another baby that will qualify her for mo’ money.

That implies that about 25% of women WOULD date an unemployed man? (assuming the absence of independent wealth.) How stupid.

Replace “date” with “hook up” or “sleep with” then either the poll will be very different or expose a lot of women as not being so truthful to polling agencies.

Not news,
here in Maryland-DC area I have met many women on dating websites who said up front that they wont date a man who is NOT ‘prochoice’, meaning they must be for women's abortion rights.

Lots of single Mom's with government jobs here.

Of course not. The left has successfully snipped off two of men’s most valuable posessions by denying him admission to college and access to jobs, and by making him responsible for all the evils in the world.

I was unemployed, bald and fat when I met my current wife. I found a position in my field four months after we married and I am still working for the same company eight years later.

I knew a guy who made tons of money as a young man. He and his dad owned a convenience store and sunk all the profits into land. They eventually sold the store and lived a modest but comfortable life by occasionally selling off some very expensive waterfront property.

He’d go out with girls who dropped him like a hot potatoe when they found out he didn’t work. They never understood he didn’t need to work. He’d lived like this so long, that when he tried getting jobs, he couldn’t do them well.

A few years after losing touch with him, I found out that he hung himself. He was probably very lonely and depressed.

If he cannot take care of himself, how can he take care of a family? SHE will be the one taking care of him, like his momma. It is Biblical to work and provide for yourself.

How checked out would he have to have been in high school to not have any skills to offer? How lazy would he have to be to not be working, somewhere, anywhere, to provide for himself??

Run screaming!!

Absolutely, women want to have fun, this probably applies to how they deal with most men, in most situations, most, most, most, but there are some men for whom the rules don’t apply.

For one thing, this poll probably only applies to the kind of men who “date”.

The “women” that he had were all idiots. I meet those types all the time, and they are still idiots today.

To make matters worse, Manson doped them all out with free LSD all the time.

I guess that’s pretty cool, if one is into that sort of thing.

Ask the women on those dating sites if they are planning on getting pregnant unexpectedly. If not, maybe they should retrace their steps and see what they can do to prevent the pregnancy in the first place (with a man they don’t want to “settle” with at a time that is “wrong” in their life).

Dating American women is an uphill battle. There are good ones there, yes. But most are steeped in pro choice, most are very sympathetic if not enthusiastic supporters of homos, and are rabid revolutionary feminists.

This is why men head to eastern Europe and Russia.

maybe I wont ask contradictory questions like that.

I would probably get an answer like :
you Republican MEN tried to take away our birth control to force us to get pregnant’

I have come to the conclusion that they decide they want kids but see men as optional in raising them, except for the $$$ from family court mandated child support payments. Privatized welfare.

IF it’s true that “Welfare mothers make better lovers” (Neil Young) then why wouldn’t a 21st Century “welfare brother” make a better lover for a working woman? Or is that not even part of the equation anymore? Forget the sex ‘cause she got a thang of her own. If you got something to bring to her table, make sure it’s plenty of cold hard disposable cash...No more, no less. Female Chauvinism is alive and well,...not well.

Anybody who can’t get a job even in the last 8 years is loser. Seriously, there are so many job announcements in many areas of the country that if you can’t pick up a job then you really are worthless. For a woman, it is different as they don’t need to be the breadwinner. As a man, I would be incredibly embarrassed not to have a job regardless of my pension. You need to provide for your family no matter what. It is disgusting the excuses people make for not being able to find a job. Lazy is usually first on the list.

You’re all making me proud and relieved that my daughter dumped her longtime boyfriend for being “not ambitious enough”, and traded him in on a third-year engineering student.

I think she thought better of ending up married to a guy who she’d constantly have to keep pushing to remain employed.

It’s not just women that put employment at the top of their list for dating either. My best friend married a radiologist solely because of her earning potential. If she was a cashier or had some other menial type job he never would have given her a second look. She’s a loud, obnoxious b**** who no one can stand being around for long, but she works 60+ hours a week and makes beaucoup bucks.

He has all the material things he was after, but he also drinks like a fish now and does nothing but complain about how much she spends.

It used to be that women wanted a man with steady employment because she wanted to be sure her children would be taken care of. Is that still the case, or is it because the woman wants to be taken care of? Big difference.

They are more “sloppy” about their use of preventative birth control and selection of partners than they are ignorant of its availability and use.

“Unplanned/unexpected pregnancy” is a misnomer just as it is erroneous to say that abortion cuts down on teen pregnancies. It doesn’t prevent any of them. Teen pregnancy rates are still high. It just prevents the pregnancy from coming to full term. But it is wrong to “pretend none of this ever happened”.

Men will date the youngest hottest woman regardless of her situation.

There's a difference between somebody being "between jobs", and somebody being unemployed with few prospects of ever being employed again.

Now, consider the female outrage if a survey showed men uninterested in dating chubby single moms.

3) Someone should have told him that he is never unloved — GOD LOVES HIM ( alas he never spoke to a priest or a pastor ).

I have also found that “self-employed” is interpreted as “unemployed”. For eight years I was a business partner in an industrial instrument service company that also supplied integration services for process control (refineries, pipelines) and industrial automation. It did not matter that at the time I was working 60 hour weeks and serving multiple clients (ranging from a major refinery to a biomedical company). I was still an unemployed bum in the eyes of women. When I said I was a principal in the company, it was seen as a BS game, even though if they looked up the company name on Manta, they would see the revenues and my being listed as a VP. Yet they would go out with a dope dealer.
