Absolutely. As long as he's doing something productive with his life and continuously trying to better himself, as am I, it can work.
I hate to be the villian. But I can not date a man that doesnt make the same amount or more money than I do. Reason being because with men they have a lot more opportunities than we as women do. If I'm out here grinding and getting his grind should match mine period. I believe a relationship should be 50/50 nothing more nothing less. I don't know how many times I've met women who are the bread winners in their relationships and are miserable with their husbands/boyfriends because they make less money than them. A lot of women look at it as a turn off because men are suppose to be the head of the household.
I can be serious with dating a man that is considered to be less of status to myself or makes less than me. I have no problem with this. When I met my fiance he was laid off from his good job and had a house to pay for living off of unemployment. I had my own apartment and bills to pay also. After a few months of dating we moved in together and things have picked up. He has a job and now makes more than me, but it shouldn't be about the money to begin with. The problem with women today is that your always looking for a guy with status and you aren't bringing anything to the table yourselves. Women in the past have fought so hard for the label of being an independent woman and for role models of today we have The Housewives, Mob Wives, ect. This teaches us to be dependent on a man if your weak minded and thus far makes you search for a man with status and make it not okay by your standards to date a "broke" man. A rich man can be the devil in disguise and a poor man can give you the world without giving you one material thing. Ladies wake up and start to make this so called relationship thing a 50%/50% thing not what's yours is mine and what's mines is mine. Money is the root of all evil and can be the foundation cracker in your so called solid relationship if you base it solely on status and/or finances.
I think most importantly he needs to be doing something that makes him feel secure and happy with himself, but also looking to grow in his area of expertise in. Women want a man we can respect not because of his financial status. Do you want the man who makes a lot but has no time for you or the man who makes a little less than you but treats you with respect and admires you ambition?
As long as he is pursuing something in his life and is not dependent on me to be the main provider, then I have no problems with it.
Yes, you can date a man that makes less. But, the key is he has to have an actual job. Maybe the woman has a little more education or experience in her field. As long as the man is working hard and trying to succeed, it shouldn't matter. The problem lies in the man, some men won't date a woman who's more successful, he feels intimidated. That shouldn't be the case, as long as the woman is not making him feel less than what he is worth :-)
I can date a man with less status and money than me. As long as he is hardworking with goals I'm in. But just because he starts off making less I don't want him to say there. I would like for him to eventually want to make more than me. I don't care too much about status but I do want a provider who can one day be able to take care of the household.
Yes! Money nor status makes a MAN his character is what makes him. If he has goals and are working really hard to achieve those goals and he treats me like a woman should be treated then yes I can look pass the fact that I make more than he does and I have more status than he does to make the relationship work. Don't get it twisted though because I will NOT take care of a man just because I make more. He has to still be able to earn his keep.
