An It’s Just Lunch spokesperson reads these numbers as an indication that “women’s old-fashioned beliefs about sex roles seem to apply,” and that men are more desirable if they have jobs and are good providers.
The Jezebel post, on the other hand, views the data in less blatantly monetary terms.
“If I make 0,000, then he has to make AT LEAST 0,000.” I’ve never heard a man say the same thing.
Face it: if you’re a woman who is in the top 10% of earners – and you INSIST that your man out earn you – you’ve now eliminated 90% of the dating population. Which is – in my estimation – one of the main reasons it’s easier for men to find love.
Because good relationships have those negative feelings as much as they have positive ones.
Those who say relationships are all moments of bliss and euphoria aren’t wrong; they’re just forgetting a lot.
Even a cheap date still requires some amount of income coming in.
And if you're so tied down to y our parents that you can't work, then how would you make the time to go out with a woman..spend the night with her when the time came? I have seen hundreds of posts on the same subject of dating with no job..money..car...bellydanza nailed it!!!
But the best relationships are the ones that are making you feel all the time.

Ok here is my situationi haven't worked for more than a year in the past 10 years... i have a job i just get no money for it : Pi take care of a disabled vietnam veteran father and a mother who isn't always in the best of healthi get told all the time that what i'm doing is great but women never give me the time of the day and most that i've bothered to ask have told me it's b/c i have no job or income... discuss I would only date a guy without a job who had some other means of income (inheritance, stocks, independently wealthy).
The article points out what I’ve observed previously: the issue these days isn’t so much that the male schoolteacher is “intimidated” by the high-paid female advertising executive (there are some, but you don’t want them anyway), but rather that the high-paid ad exec refuses to date the schoolteacher. Isn’t the point of being independently wealthy so that you can do what you want, when you want?
Doesn’t the value of being self-sufficient come in not having to worry about someone supporting you?
