    Should Poor People Date?

    I’ve read that the number one cause of fights in a relationship is money issues, I thought by learning as much as I good about economics I’d be able to avoid the trap, but the truth is that I am extremely impoverished and have always been so. I can not afford a nicer date than coffee and a walk in the park (which still has its place) and I’m regularly not able to meet all of my needs. At the same time I am very lonely. I have 3 communities that I’m active in which has given me lots of friends but there is no one I have to hold, to really open up to, and I’m blue balled as hell.

    Given that I am not only very poor but do not actually see a way out of this for me, do I even have the right to date? As it stands I feel guilty for even wanting to.

    I understand that being poor takes away the confidence in you. Not all women see money in their partner there are a lot of women who want a good person and who would do anything for them. but since the money is taking the confidence away from you. try to work harder switch to jobs you love doing and earn a bit more than usual.

    That makes sense, but doing is more difficult than stating, as in I have no clue how to go about that, or if there actually is a job that I will both enjoy and be able to survive on. Which not enjoying the job is fine with me as long as I have control over my schedule and am not left completely worn out after work.

    Of course you have a right to date. Be creative and you can have many great low to no cost dates.

    Thank you Monkey, creativity I’ve got, I’ve just been holding myself back because I want women to have more stability then I can currently give.

    Being poor and dating can create some problems, however you can also get around those problems if both parties are willing. A relationship I was in we had very little money to spend, but we enjoyed each other’s company so we were content with just hanging out at parks and such. Busy work schedules left both of us were very worn out when we had free time so we sometimes would have sleep dates, where would just sleep next to one another either on/in a couch, bed, car, under a tree etc. Later in the relationship we moved in together, had a meager living but we had each other. Eventually for other reasons we parted ways, but money was never the cause of strife between us.

    I can’t believe there is someone else who feels the same way, for a long time, I didn’t have the confidence to start dating because I’m not sure about my ability to provide. How could I stand up proudly in front of her, or especially her parents, knowing that I can’t provide for her. so, because of this I turned down the girls who are interested in me. Then it struck me that they weren’t interested in me because of the money I had, but because of something else. so dude, don’t fret about the money too much, when you have “the one,” you’ll definitely be more motivated to do better and earn more, and at the end of the day you will. Like me 😉
