This guy I met is really cute, sweet, nice, etc., (so far). but he doesn't really have a good job. He worked a bunch of odd jobs in the past (from what he tells me). we're both in our early 30's. He seems very ambitious and started his own business a couple years ago. It seems he is trying to become successful but it's been a slow progression. I mean he may never be successful in his career because he is doing something difficult that maybe a small percentage of people become successful in. But he seems like he is good at what he does, so sometimes I try to just believe in him. but other times I worry that what if he doesn't become successful in his career? he doesn't really have anything else to fall back on...
I really like him but my friends don't think it's a good idea because of what he does. I'm pretty established in my career and I make enough $$ to support a family. But I don't want to be the one to do that cus I'm so exhausted and I have to take care of one of my parents (financially). I'd like it to at least be equal where we are both bringing in almost the same amount. I don't want all the finances to be on me if I ever get married.
Anyway we just met a couple months ago so it's not like we know where things are going. We're just getting to know each other. but would you consider dating someone who doesn't really have his/her career figured out? What if things do get serious and he's still getting nowhere with his career?

You are not thinking about him but your financial well being. Once you start considering a person according to the size of their wallet and not their worth as a person, its bound to go south. Let finances come later, deal with the person first. Gatorgirl12 has the right idea. Always give chances.1
