Would you date a girl who is a broke college student?

I got ditched by this guy I liked. We were supposed to chill yesterday but he wrote me and told me “ hi sorry I’ve been short with you. I’m getting involved with this girl. She wants the things I want and we are going on strong. She has a great job too. I’m going to invest my time and effort in her. Sorry. Good luck to you “

  • Hello dear,
    First of all it is rude to break up with someone by text. At least have the good manners and be a gentleman to say it face to face.
    Second, as long as I really love the girl I would be next to her no matter what the situation is.
    If we are aiming for a long term relationship than it is my job to help her finish her studies and get a decent job so we could take care of each other and live under the same roof.
    The way he left makes me come to a one conclusion which means that guy is a "gold digger".

    My answer is Yes I would. If I love her and she really loves me, we will find a way to make it work.

    Making it through hard times like these strenghten up a relationship.

    Don't worry dear, you will find someone who will make it through difficult situations no matter what 😊

  • I wouldn't mind dating a broke college student. Jeez, I'm in med school and I know things can get really hard. But I'd understand why someone wouldn't date one. Maybe they have different plans, different priorities, etc. It's just weird how straightforward he was about it.

  • WELL... my girlfriend is in your situation. Here is out stats:

    ME:
    -27
    -College graduate
    -Great Job
    -Good money
    -Living Well

    HER:
    -22
    -Still in college
    -Making $11/hour
    -Has trouble making payments

    My girlfriend has asked me for money quite a few times, because she has been short on rent. This does not always happen, but sometimes her job gives her very low hours... and even when she asks for more, they don't give it to her. For that reason, I had to give her some money to pay her rent these last 2 months and a few other times as well.

    It's extremely tough to be in a relationship like this, because she is slowing me down, I feel. However, I cannot blame her, and she always pays me back when she gets the money.

    Even though she isn't where I am at yet financially or job wise, I know when she finishes college, she will be there and she will more than likely make more than me (she is getting her masters in occupational therapy).

    So... with all that being said, I am not going to dump her simply because of money trouble, because I know that in a few years from now we will be laughing about this.

  • Depends on what she is studying, why she is broke, etc.

    Is she a lazy bum, just studying some useless crap such as gender studies while expecting others to pay for her living standard? Hell no. Not gonna deal with that.

    Is she just busy with her studies, studying like medicine or something difficult or is jobbing, but just minimum wage - completely fine.

    It depends solely on context and attitude.

  • Sounds like its less about you being a broke college student and more he's into this other girl. Unless you're incredibly lucky everyone in college is broke as shit. So unless you're being a hypocrite and shooting down college guys cause theyre broke it just wasn't meant to be.

  • In general, sure, I would date a broke college student. She is broke now, but she clearly has some sort of ambition. I would not date someone who was broke and didn't look like they had any long-term plan to support themselves.

  • Are you sure it's because you're broke or just cause because I don't think he ditched you just cause of money but just cause ya know he wanted that girl a bit more

    • I've never seen the word 'cause' so much in one run-on sentence. Almost as bad as saying 'like'.

    • I misused it once and it's common where I'm from lingo wise lol.

  • I don't think it had anything to do with you being unemployed. it sounded more like he was bragging on her and that may have simply been what ultimately made him choose her, especially depending on his age. he may be looking to finally settle down, that factors in greatly as well.

  • First thing I'm going to say is that kudos to him for telling you straight. There are a lot of guys who don't have the dick to be honest with a girl they don't want to pursue, so please try to appreciate him telling you before things went further.
    It sounds like he wants to date a girl who has a more certain future in front of her. That sure makes it easier for him to think about his future with her.

  • It doesn't matter if someone is broke or not. I have a good Job that has a pension and is solid. But it won't stop me from liking the person just because of money. That can always change for the better attitude and attractiveness/ brains different matter all together

  • I don't really see money in this situation. Maybe he just appreciates her for her job more than you. Not a bad thing, some people are attracted to different people with different jobs, I would be much more likely to date a teacher than say a firefighter. Not that they make vastly different salaries, but because I am just more attracted to someone that wants to be a teach rather than a firefighter for whatever reason

  • That sucks, I wouldn't take it personal tho if I were you.
    A broke college student says that you have a future ahead of you, that's really cool in my opinion. And any guy would be lucky to have you.
    Don't let that get you down girl

  • Personally, I would date a broke college student. Being unemployed shouldn't be a reason for someone to not want to be with the other person. Your are a collage student which shows that your trying to better your life and in my opinion thats better than a job. If you look at the bright side, its better that he told you that he was moving on with someone else in stead of leading you on and wasting your time.

  • I'm a broke college guy. Doesn't mean we can't cuddle and watch a movie before a class starts, or go to a school function and spend hours talking to each other and not get bored. I'd love to have a girlfriend at my college, whether she's broke or not.

  • Yes. I have and still would. As long as our dates are reasonable and she's not sponging off me. Not saying you are. But something simple as grabbing some Whataburger or Burger King and staying home watching a movie would be just as perfect as going to a fancy restaurant

    I'd never do that to someone over text by the way.

  • Sounds like he was more concerned with you having a paycheck than any feelings. While having your own source of income is important, you also need to concentrate on your school work.
    Basically forgot him and concentrate on your school work and find someone who appreciates you for you

  • Well, it depends for me at least, on the personality of the girl, if I like you, I will generally like you and try my best to stay with you, but sadly there are guys out there that only want a girl for her looks and if she has money, for me that's no issue, it's only the personality and the looks. The ratios like personality 85% and looks 15%

  • I'm sorry that happened to you, I for one would date a college girl despite her lack of money. You don't need money to have fun, in fact you don't even need much money to go on a nice date. The only thing that matters is what you make of it

  • I don't think you being broke is a problem if it's love. Maybe he already made up his mind and he's just blaming you for it.

  • Casually, yes. Seriously, no. I'll be honest. I am established in life. I have finances and assets that I have worked hard for. I would love to share my life with someone who has similar goals, social standing and financial progress. Dating someone broke and cannot financially contribute to a relationship doesn't sound like a very smart thing for any guy to do. No problem if you are going through a rough patch which is only temporary and you have potential and drive to turn things around. But, I simply will not fund and support someone's life while they freeload. Love doesn't pay the bills.

  • Personally I don't think that I had anything to do with you being broke or a college student I think that was more of a situation where he was talking to several people at one time and just decided that he liked one of them or their goals matched up and they were just they clicked better and he decided to focus on her more and push their relationship I would say be respectful of that he didn't ghost you didn't just dip out on you he me he respectfully told you hey this is what I'm doing and I feel like that was mature I do think that he could have done it not over texted them in person but some guys are just too awkward and too immature to do that but at least he did tell you and he made a choice on who he was going to be with you saved you a lot of time and I think you should just take it as it is and hang in there
