I don't care at all. It doesn't matter to me. Well, actually... if he's like a hunter or something else that has to do with animal killing/harming, I won't date him. That's an exception. Oh and I prolly won't date a porn star or an escort either. Pretty much everything else is fine.
So much for the stereotype "women want money", most of the women who have voted don't care what their man does, so the next time a man blasts women for being all about money, I'll make sure to post a link to this poll.
I'm a professional & I like to marry a professional too.
I always find it interesting how women respond in questions and polls like this one. Most of them say it doesn't matter. In real life though, they show time after time that a man's job and his income matter a great deal, and studies bear that out with no room for argument. Show a woman a picture of an average looking man and ask her to rate him on his appearance and he will get 3 - 5. Include a six-figure salary and/or a profession like lawyer or doctor on the very same picture and her rating of his appearance suddenly jumps to a 7 - 9.
So why do women play this dishonest game rather than just being honest?
If he's doing something that he gets paid for then that's good enough!
My dad is a blue collar worker. He's worked his whole life on the kill floor of a slaughterhouse. And that's honorable to me. My boyfriend has ambitions to be a lawyer but he would also really love to teach and there's a fairly large difference in pay grade between a teacher and a lawyer and whatever he chooses is good for me. I've always been taught that I need to make enough to provide for myself and whatever he makes is just an added bonus. So it doesn't matter. He should pursue his passion.
I don't particularly care as long as he makes enough money to self-sustain and potentially be a provider for our future family if things get serious. It's also nice to have a guy who makes enough money to where we can decide we're going on a random weekend trip.
I really don't care what his job is, as long as he's happy and our combined incomes are enough to support a family. If I'm a world renowned surgeon and he loves being a construction worker, then I'm happy.
i actually dont care at all, as long as he's financially stable enough to help provide for a family. for me, financially stable enough would probably be anything around the $55,000 and over mark. i dont think I'm asking for that much tbh, since that would be combined with my wage.
I chose "other" because I only care that he enjoys his job. If he has a high paying job that he hates, that sucks. No one should have to dread most of their days. And frankly, I don't want to listen to him complain about his job all the time. If he's only temporarily in that job, and he's working toward getting a job he does love, that's fine and he can totally complain. But if he chose being a doctor as a career, and he hates it but has no intention of switching, that's a huge turn-off.
There's something appealing about almost every type of job. Something interesting, something admirable, something impressive. You just have to choose to see it, regardless of society's general opinion.
Look, in 6 years I'm going to finish pharmacy school, and have an income of about $100,000 a year. I don't like the idea of dating someone who can't at least keep up with me, or surpass me. Therefore, I don't care what job he has as long as the income matches or surpasses mine.
IT doesn't FUCKING MATTER WHAT THE DUDE WORKS OR WHAT HE STUDIED IN COLLEGE AS LONG AS HE'S EDUCATED. I'm not gonna choose my future husband based on what job he has, jeez... I'm gonna marry the guy I love no matter what career he chose to have or what he's into. GAH... you people need to stop overthinking and overanalising the career thing. IT doesn't MATTER. Period.
I don't really have a definite career in mind as in i don't only date doctors or whatever and i don't really know any women that are that specific or like that. It is important to me though that whoever i date likes or is interested in their job. You're at work for a good portion of the day and it has an impact on how you are after work and therefore the people you hang out with. The money thing is a thing. Like most women i want to get married and raise a family and i want to be with someone who wants that too and is financially responsible. That doesn't mean i want to marry someone rich or whatever, but i want to be with someone who has the same attitude to money as i have, that is responsible with it.
I wouldn't care. I'll make enough money to take of myself. I never want a man to take care of me. And I'm not spoiled so I don't have to have a mansion and a huge boat. So, all I need is a loving man that works hard and honestly.
I'll be honest I always said I would 1. Marry a Lawyer (because my brother went to Law school and I met some of his friends) and 2. Never date or be with someone that would be in uniform (Cop, Security etc) and guess what? I am now with someone for almost a year that wants to be a cop. You can aim for what career you want your ideal spouse to be in but you might get something else. Learn to accept it and support your partner...
Women nowdays just want a man on her professional level. She wouldn't like it when she s a doctor and he's something less than that honestly but it is not related to how much he makes, but rather his intellectual status, would they both be interested in the same causes and talk about it with the same intellectual level. Thats the real deal
I don't care, but I hope he works with something he loves
I legit don't care. All I want if for him to be happy doing what he does for a living. I make decent money and live comfortably already, so I don't need him to make a lot of money. If he wants to, that's fine, that's his ambitious choice.
I prefer Aurors, but Healers and Mediwizards are not bad either.
