SAN DIEGO, -- Thirty-three percent of U.S. women say no to dating an unemployed man, but 42 percent would consider it if the man had a plan, a survey indicated.
The survey of 925 single women by specialty dating service It's Just Lunch found 4 percent of women responded with an unreserved yes to dating an unemployed man, while another 21 percent said they would, but they wanted to know how the man was keeping occupied if not working.
"Not having a job will definitely make it harder for men to date someone they don't already know," Irene LaCota, spokeswoman for It's Just Lunch, said in a statement.
Many women said they fear there will be a financial obligation if they dated someone who is out of work, while others said they feared their activities would be constricted by an unemployed man's financial limitations.
It's not just about money, life coach and filmmaker Patricia Weaver said, it is about being with a man who is engaged in something.
"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," Weaver said.
Vincent Turner, of San Francisco, said women are subtle when they discover a man is living off his savings.
"No one's going to say, 'I'm not going to date you because you don't have a job," Turner said. "You usually get the first date. But you don't get a lot of callbacks."
Females only go where the money is - it’s always been that way.
“said women are subtle when they discover a man is living off his savings.”
In other words, two cannot live as well as she living off your savings.
“You usually get the first date.”
And who usually pays for that?
He has a plan? Yea, right. Stupidity abounds. My wife contends the framers had it right about women voting. Actually, it was perfect in that only property owners got to vote.
And men are less likely to date a woman with a disfiguring skin condition—even if she’s on a treatment with a good chance to clear it up.
What a shock.
I’ve had people (HR types and others responsible for hiring) tell me that don’t hire single men, although they will hire single women.
Does your wife think the framers also had it right about blacks voting?
The 0boz0 regime has an app for that: women have a constitutuional right to date a man with a job, so 0boz0 proposes we employ men at new call centers nationwide where other men can call for information on obtaining employment at a call center. The program is modelled after the Solyndra and food stamp programs.
For women who are looking for husband material and for fathers of their future children, not just a good time or a one night stand, it only makes sense to want to date men who are employed. It is not the “gold digger” mentality that some of you are assuming.
Let's look at it another way. Let's say you have a single daughter in her 20’s or 30’s or older. Who would you prefer she dates? Someone with a job, or someone without one? If you have an unemployed single adult son at any age. What would you advise him to do? Focus on getting a woman or a job? These are no-brainers. (Unless of course you and your daughter or son are expecting to have access to Obama's stash.)
It's only unemployed white middle-class Betas that they have issues with, because the purpose of the Beta is to support a woman while she runs around behind his back with the unemployed gangstas.
After declaring independence on July 4, 1776, each former English colony wrote a state constitution. About half the states attempted to reform their voting procedures. The trend in these states was to do away with the freehold requirement in favor of granting all taxpaying, free, adult males the right to vote. Since few men escaped paying taxes of some sort, suffrage (the right to vote) expanded in these states. Vermont’s constitution went even further in 1777 when it became the first state to grant universal manhood suffrage (i.e., all adult males could vote). Some states also abolished religious tests for voting. It was in New Jersey that an apparently accidental phrase in the new state constitution permitted women to vote in substantial numbers for the first time in American history.
I don’t see a whole lot of evidence of employed people having time for dating lately...
