- I'm ok with it.
- No way would I give him a chance.

As long as he was making enough to live comfortably and support himself it'd be fine with me. If his lack of ambition sticks him in a rut where he is at a wage that makes him unable to feed himself and take care of himself and he's always asking to borrow money, then no.

Well, I wouldn't date a guy at all... lol. However, with this being said, I'll answer your question from a straight male's perspective.
I would say if someone has a job, they're more than likely ambitious already. Ambition just means having a goal or desire to be successful. You had ambition: You got a job, and you have hobbies. To some, this may not be "successful", but to others (like you), this is perfectly fine.
I'm about to be a teacher, which is just a middle-class income and I'm extremely ambitious. I'm going for my Master's, which won't make my wage that outstanding and I just finished six years of college, on top of a job. Too many people confuse income with ambition.
Unfortunately, regardless of what the girls here on GAG say, most young women will not date a guy who lacks "ambition." I do think women get better about this when they hit their 30's/40's, but young adult women are too greedy. They use the word "ambition" as an excuse to be a gold-digger. They could care less about ambition; they just want money. Hugh Hefner and many other elderly wealthy men had no ambition at all but they were lucky enough to be wealthy, because of privilege. However, this doesn't stop young women from FLOCKING to these guys.
This is probably the most realistic and straightforward answer you'll read. You're welcome.
