Uncomfortable dating man with no job updating two tables at once
The results of the survey, conducted by the matchmaking service It’s Just Lunch, is not necessarily representative of the population.
The Jezebel post, on the other hand, views the data in less blatantly monetary terms.
A much larger proportion of women (36%) prefer dates who own property.
Again, these numbers don’t necessarily mean that women put more of an emphasis on requiring their mates to be swimming in material goods and income.
As men, many of us love the idea of growing with a woman, i.e. For us, it’s an unmistakable act of loyalty, appreciation, faith, and love to witness a woman stick by us before we become anything of note. I had a studio apartment, sleeping in the corner, no furniture for almost two years. Some men want a love story like Tia and Cory’s, while some just want to use the idea of Tia and Cory’s love for their own self-interested, manipulative purposes.
This is why we collectively latch onto stories about athletes, entertainers, and other influential men who have been with their woman through their broke days. Because of this ugly truth, women who work hard as hell to attain what they have in life want a man who is willing to work equally hard, so they avoid “unsuccessful” men.
