Well as a 23 year old I have no interest in dating a 29 year old. Assuming I was 29, I would be open to dating a girl like that on a couple of conditions...
1. She doesn't significantly add to my monthly expenses by expecting me to pay off her debts, buy her fancy clothes, jewelry, or take her to expensive restraunts.
2. I dont really care if she helps with rent or utility bills. I would rather she just saves/invests whatever she makes so that if we do break up she can still support herself. I would however want her to pay for her half of whatever groceries we buy. It is a bonus if she cooks but I am fine with splitting that task if she works the same ammount of hours as I do.
3. Meets my other requirements.
Reasonably attractive, not significantly less intelligent than I am, pleasant to be around/low drama, common interests, similar sense of humor, and modest (low partner count, hasn't had casual sex, hasn't sent nudes to strangers, and doesn't wear overly revealing clothes).
If she meets all of those then I wouldn't write her off just for lacking ambition.
no. guys aren't entitled materialistic spoiled brats-only some women think like this... the type to avoid.
Yes. I see no problem with this provided she isn't a generally lazy person.
That depends a lot on the circumstances. Many people end up in situations like this because of the trials of life -- say, being a single parent, never being able to go to college -- granted, I would not feel very attracted to someone who lacked ambition. Even if that ambition is in being a housewife, I would honor it. But frankly someone who wants to be a manager for life does not sound very ambitious. There is value in being a mom and wife; not much in being a manager. Hence I would tend to think that this person lacked ambition, and would be cautious of them. But I would not make any absolutist statements.
Many women wouldn't (Which is obvious by your poll results) because working a job that makes "Enough" and you enjoy means nothing to them. They want you to spend your whole life trying to make as much money as possible.
They use their men like an ATM machine and don't care if he is happy at all.
Of course I'd date someone like that. I'm a man and we don't normally think along those lines like women do. Besides, that can be one of the best and fastest ways to get rich.
Dating a 29-year old woman who works for minimum wage in a store? No, not exactly my ideal match...
Id go back and forth with it. It comes off as she's never going to advance in her career because she hasn't already. Still at minimum wage at 29 is concerning. I can find her a job that pays triple of that thats in sales but she has to be able to sell and like it.
Entering retail to pursue management, is a viable career path in my opinion. As long as the woman felt he was serious about it, I can't imagine that turning off too many women.
I mean as long as they hustled and did 40 hours or more and had some other job supplementing their income I would be fine. You can't knock the hustle since some people don't have the luxury or school and do not have a trade skill.
But I wouldn't be thrilled if they just did their 40 hours and didn't try to do better with an extra job. 40 hour work weeks these days are part time.
Yep, wouldn't care at all. There are plenty of ways to be ambitious in life and financial/status ambition is probably among the most overrated and even problematic for having a happy life.
More to life than material things
Its motivation and desire. They can do better
Well if she's cute with a nice personality I would date her. If she doesn't try at life and has no real interests then No. But if she does try and she at least tries to learn new things then yes.
I would if i werent married, Its all about personality, on top of that i dont really worry about money, i make enough for two..
Yes, why not?
Well I'm Hungary that's equivalent to starving to death.
It should have been bearing on dating someone unless you plan to marry.
If I were marrying, I would not care where the girl is in her career. It is her wish. I would however want her to be college educated. For me, her job is to do well what women excel at and men can't. Not strive to be another man. Providing for the family is MY job.
I wouldn't, because I'm straight.
But if I had a daughter right now, I'd rather her date a store manager than an accountant.
Assuming it refers to women too, I would if she has something interesting to offer. Carrier is just one trait that can make a woman desirable among the others, the fact that she lacks of this doesn't mean there are not any other.
Nope, seems lazy and lacks ambition. Definite turn offs for me.
No because I'm not gay. As far as a women maybe if she's hot enough. If I can only pick one rather have a goddess than a sugar momma.
I probably would, though I usually date younger.
I'd say manager would be a good job, but of course all women want it seems are engineera or somebody with a big bankroll., completely missing the entire lesson.
Yes, I would. Money is far less important than compatibility. If we were compatible and we had a great connection, why wouldn't I stay with her?
I don't think so
hell, the way people are loosing their jobs... being a store manager might as well make you into a king.
Not really. Being the manager of a store isn't really enough these days. I guess if I was in love with her I'd overlook that though
Yes because that's how I am too lol
Oh hell now my SO has to have some ambitions in life
As long as they're happy and making a living while doing it. I wouldn't mind that.
No because I want to be a stay at home mom. I know so many girls who would though
Most likely, no.
