Cash And Caring: Ladies, Would You Date An Unemployed Man?
If not, do you complain bitterly that men only want the young hot ones?
An article at LiveScience notes that 75 percent of women say they'd be unlikely to date an unemployed man and 33 percent said no outright. David Mielach writes:
On the other hand, the prospect of dating an unemployed woman was not a problem for nearly two-thirds of men. In fact, 19 percent of men said they had no reservations and 46 percent of men said they were positive they would date an unemployed woman.
A guy may pursue a hot barrista. A woman is unlikely to.
Of course, as I've written over and over, detailing the results of numerous studies, men and women evolved to prioritize different things. Per a wide, cross-cultural study done by Dr. David Buss, both men and women put top priority on a partner who's kind. But, men prioritize physical beauty in women (youth and other signs indicating that she's a healthy, fertile mother-to-be) and women prioritize men's social status and ability to provide.
To get all indignant about this stuff is ridiculous. Knowing what the opposite sex wants tells you what you need to do to be wanted.
