A reader sent me this article that was featured on The Good Men Project, entitled Dating While Broke. The author basically said that men with no money, limited free time will find it difficult to date. To wit:
Most women gauge a man’s interest by his spending of (a) money or (b) time. If the guy has no money, how can she see that he deserves a shot? If the guy has little free time because he is busy working so that he can someday have money, how can she still know that he cares for her?
I can certainly understand his point, however, I don’t know if this is a fair statement. It leaves out emotional support, affection, and attention which can absolutely make a woman fall for a guy. All that is free and takes genuine effort. That’s actually what a lot of women want to see.
Maybe I am over analyzing, but why would a woman stick around for anyone who does not make time in his life for her because he is chasing money?
What do you think? Can broke and busy people date? I am both and I do all right! What about you?
