Most women just want a man who has a job, a roof over his head (preferably not his mom's) and is willing to work hard to make a good life for his future family.But what happens when he doesn't have those things?After a conversation with my friend where I explained to her the problems I was having in my love life — being led on, and fast-forwarding into relationships before giving them a chance to develop on their own — she asked me, have you read, “He's Just Not That Into You? I had never heard of the book, and thought she was almost mocking me, but, as if to register my confusion in my flushed complexion, she smiled reassuringly and said, “Just trust me, I read it and it's changed my whole outlook on men.”I was hesitant, but that night, I bought “He's Just Not That Into You,” by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, and I began to read.After a few days, upon completion of the book, I did feel like I learned things I never knew before, but the main lesson I seemed to take away from the book was, there are So, sure, love can still exist, and couples can live “happily ever after,” but you just have to lower your standards and settle for what you can get, without the excitement of “the chase,” that we all seem to be addicted to.By which I mean anything more expensive than fast food, which I’m not about to subject a woman to on a date.When I’m by myself I can keep entertained by replaying old video games, reading classical literature from the library (The Divine Comedy feels sadly familiar), or rewatching Initial D, but I don’t really have ideas for cheap/free dates that won’t get me laughed at or fled from.I met him when he was a broke ass and literarily had nothing to his name.
I loved Yomi with my whole life and I was faithful to him all through our four years of courtship.Do I need to post the fact that I don’t have much on there?If I don’t, will women see that as some form of ‘false advertising’, or is this something to bring up on the first date and see how the cards fall? Secondly, I usually don’t have the money per fortnight for much more than one meal out at a date-worthy establishment.However, I am keeping calm and carrying on as best as I am able and still working toward employment. At the start of this stretch of unemployment I had decided to get employment before finding female companionship, but as time goes by I find myself see-sawing between loneliness and missing the spark a relationship gives. To start with, how blatantly should I be advertising that I’m broke?I don’t have an OKCupid account (or equivalent), but am looking at making one soon.
