Yup. All the half above resonates me. Other than caring my family. I am self-employed, into lawn care and landscaping. My plans to get a land to place a home and storage building to have all my equipment in one single spot. Compare leasing a storage and travel to get them. Last year I got a new truck to build more solid credit compare having small credits. Even with my machines I have helped me build good credit to get the slightly lower rate for this new truck. As you know credit companies want to see higher purchases for bigger purchases to be fully trusted. You know this question the user made is been in my thoughts. What if a girl leaves only because I live with my parents. As well my parents having financially problems. My mother can't work she had shoulder surgery can lift more than 15 lb. Me and brother splitting the bills and dad paying the house.
@Walt832 In your circumstance, I'd absolutely date you! You're: supporting your family (which I respect a man that puts his family first), you're working, responsible, and working to do what's best. It's only offputting in the sense that assuming she wanted to be intimate with you, obviously going to your place would be impossible. But guess what- you can go to her place (after you're comfortable with each other), a nice hotel, or when your family is not home. But is that a dealbreaker? NO. Not for a woman that is mature and old enough to understand your circumstances.
If a guy is going for his PHD he could easily be 25 before he moved out + they could have to stop or delay school to make some money to go to school.
@nathanp97: Someone going for a Ph. D. already, more likely than not, earned his Master's degree. If he is that educated, he should already have a job that pays enough for him to move out while he's still going to school. There is no excuse to be over 25 and still living at home.
A masters is 5-6 years which if he tried saving up first would still put him in that range. Even working for two yesrs before a bachlors would put you at 25. Most people if they go continuesly to get their PhD won't use there masters that much. Also Mds would be a better example as most professors help you get grants, so you can actually get your Phd and sometimes masters and actually make or at least not spend as much. I don't think you have a great grasp on how higher education works, also you seem to live in this ideal world, when plenty of other reasons could explain it.
@nathanp97: I know how a higher education works. I have a higher education myself. I started working when I was a teenager, around 15 or 16 or so. Ever since I started working, I was saving as much of my money as possible and had enough to by a used car and moved out when I was 18 to start college. I earned my Bachelor's degree when I was 22, and had earned my Master's when I was 24. I didn't go for a Ph. D. because I didn't need it. I already started my career at 24, which pays well. I did all that outside my parents' house starting at 18. If I can do it, anybody else can.
🥺🥺 I almost cried reading this. What's your age dude? The whole answer was beautiful *chef kiss* Also I'd like to add "NEVER date a broke ass woman"
@stupidgrls Thanks. 47. Checkout my MyTakes for some of my other ideas.
I’d personally disagree with your comment about not dating if you’re broke. The start of relationships really have nothing to do with finance- and if you date someone who’s also broke, then you’re in the same spot. I dated the most women when I was broke. My girl and I met each other when we didn’t have a lot of money, and now we’re considerably wealthy. We helped each other out. Relationships are about growing together rather than being finished by the time you meet someone. Mindset is a lot more important to me. Broke is temporary and poor is eternal. Is easily date someone who’s broke but possesses some financial IQ. That’s because I can see the potential. Just my opinion. Not sure if you see any common ground.
@Not_Average Odds are better for a guy if he focuses on building life goals before worrying about women for a bunch of reasons. In your case you had multiple things line up that worked for you like you must have had life goals you were seriously focused on that had nothing to do with getting a woman. You found a woman who was actually interested in struggling next to you (that's rare). As a guy I never cared about how much money women had -- although at my age now I would tell young guys to run her credit report. ha ha ha.
I don't know I just look at women as a compliment to my life rather than a distraction. They’re not a focus. It just happens. Women seem to like it when you give less fucks anyways lol. If someone starts holding me back, it’s time to leave. Good company and sex only improves a mans life in my opinion. Cut your losses quickly if they’re drama. In my experience, younger women are typically down for you whether you’re broke or rich. Older women typically need a man with more money. If you can make them laugh and hold consistency in your confidence, then they’ll be down for you. I think that guys make a big mistake by thinking they need to get to x, y, and z life goals before dating. If she doesn’t want me when I’m broke then she can fuck off when I’m rich is my attitude.
It’s worked out pretty well for me so far.
@Not_Average Yes, of course it's best when your life isn't all/about her. In my experience the same woman could seem serious from your POV when you're not really building but in retrospect they were still looking. When they really "settle down" they act different in various ways but guys who never had a woman really settle for him wouldn't get it - not saying you as I don't know your life details. Just saying. There's lots of people today who don't really seem to understand the difference between committed and not tho.
This👏👏seems like everyone puts a damper on age now days so much!
Same with Caribbean cultures. Especially with the girls. We're not supposed to move until we're married or unless if we're in college. Even then they try to pressure you to go to a close college. RUN child. GO TO THE FURTHEST UNI IN YOUR STATE.
Most want their independence ASAP where possible.
I’ve had to move back in with mine before now and it wasn’t easy in all honesty. There was a lot of butting heads and them still trying to treat me like a child which was obviously never going to end up well given that I’m above 30.
