If you DO date a guy who isn't working - are there any major drawbacks? Is it a huge deal that you go out and buy stuff? Is there anything like makes you overlook a job? (like a dude being a stud?)
any general thoughts help, thanks

I tried dating a guy (he told me he was going to be joining the military soon, before we first started going out), but after a year and half, it really got to me. All he did was sleep until 4pm-6pm, stay up until 7am and play video games. I was going to school, and asked if he was interested, maybe like with a GI bill or something. He said school wasn't for him, so I said ok that's no problem.
I did ask him how the recruitment was going, and if he picked a branch yet. In the beginning he was so ambitious and excited, and that was a turn on for me. Well, after the one year mark and nothing, he said he didn't even want to try to enlist. I tried to be supportive, and asked if he had any of ideas of what he'd like to do but he said no.
3 months after that, I found out all he does is sit in his mom's house while she worked double shifts and he masturbate with other people online in video games. That was such a disappointment.
If a guy doesn't have a job, but he has ambition and is willing to try hard, if not for his dream job at least try to do something, then that is good to me. Don't have to go out and spend money to have a good time with the person you care for. Walking (around the neighborhood or at a park), stargazing, riding bicycles, cuddling & watching Netflix, playing video or board games... all of that is really fun to me and what I'd like to do.
