    Will dating a guy with a much lower income ever work?

    I just recently started dating this guy who is 23 and a waiter. He tried going to college for a semester and decided it wasn’t worth the debt. I, on the other hand, am in my last year of college and have a $65000 a year job already lined up. I’ve spoken to him trying to get a idea of his ambition, without seeing rude, and I get the idea that he is totally fine just being a waiter. He told me that money means very little to him. He does spoil me quite a bit and fully supports himself. Although, I imagine he lives paycheck to paycheck. He says that he generally stores away the money he needs to pay bills and then spends the rest on other people. I was raised very differently to be successful and marry a man that could support a potential family. I like to think I’m progressive an don’t want to be dependent on a man. I’m just not sure if I’m getting attached a man that is beneath me or will end up being a lazy bum or I don’t know what.

    Well, stop dating him and go and find a man who is well off and successful. I’m sure that there are plenty of them out there who may find you attractive. Do you really want to be with him if you cannot accept him as he is, and not worry about his income?

    If you’re a gold digger leave him, if you like him keep him.

    Why should money play a part in whether or not a man or woman is good enough. You sound like a gold digger, and just for future reference, just because you have a okay income DOES NOT make you above anyone else. Sorry..

    In the end it’s the person that matters not the paycheck. To be honest I think it’s a nice change that someone thinks money isn’t the be all and end all. Should it really matter? he’s is supporting himself and not living off you after all. And also he isn’t beneath you because he earns less or a lazy bum because he works hard for the money he does earn and you should feel lucky he uses some of his hard earned money to spoil you even if he doesn’t make very much..

    depends on what type of relationship you are looking for, if you are looking for a marriage partner, then I doubt a woman would be interested in dating a man like that
