Dating broke

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?

By the way, borrowing money from your girlfriend is a recipe for disaster. You are not defined by the size of your wallet or bank account; you are special (like a snowflake). Don’t you realize that you’re just enabling boy-men to remain boy-men?

And, no, you’re not defined by the size of your wad (or wand). In other words, when you come back strong and self-sufficient, you won’t have to find a woman; she’ll find you. You know in your gut of guts that you deserve better.

Now, if he doesn’t have the self-esteem to handle that, then you know your relationship will go nowhere.

There are so many unemployed and underemployed men these days.

He doesn’t have to go to Fogo de Chao, he can go to Applebee’s. That sounds great for a couple, but for a man who just met a woman who may or may not even be interested, I think not.

Further, what if the man has absolutely no money for Applebee’s?

Honey, can you look on Groupon to see what deals are going on tonight?

But in all seriousness, being broke definitely caused major difficulties in my last relationship.

For the first time ever, single women earn more than single men. How are we men supposed to court women when we’re broke?

What is a man without money or time to dote on his woman? A man doesn’t have to spend a whole lot of money to take a woman out on a date.

Well, that was cutesy when I was in my 20s and 30s, but as one of my close friends and mentors, Eric Saperston, once told me, “Once you hit 40, you can’t rely on being cute anymore.
