Have an opinion?
You can definitely move up the ranks in life with hard work and intelligence. It's not like a girl can complain when you're on her level, can she? The girls within your social circle will adore you.I personally would be unable to date you though. This is going to sound real bitchy, but I dated a local waiter once, his spending just didn't match up to the things I liked to do. We couldn't go on vacation, he couldn't afford to go skiing. We did not really have anything in common. Even though I tried my best to make him feel comfortable, he cheated so that's that. Moral of the story is, I just feel better with someone within my social circle. Sad as it is, that's how life it.
So, You're saying to only date people who make minimum wage too? You kind of have a point, One time I went on a couple dates with a girl who made way more than me and I couldn't afford any of the places she took me too and after a couple dates I told her about my situation and she told me I'm a loser and that she doesn't date losers and she walked out..
I'm doing some behavioural economics at the moment. One of the biggest questions is, would you be happier earning £100,000 when all your colleagues and friends are on £70,000 or would you rather earn £150,000 when all your colleagues and friends are on £200,000. Even though most people go for the second option, more money but less than the people around you, it's actually wrong. You'd be happier earning less, because you would feel like you're earning more.It's all about perspective, there are plenty girls who are financially equal or inferior to you. But then again it's not all about money. I say just focus on finding the right girl.
That's the case for me right now. My boyfriend is a mailman at the moment. As long as he can get by, it's fine, otherwise I'd be worried. But his rent is low because he is renting from his parents, so no problem there. He is thinking of someday either enrolling in a short educational program or finishing the studies he was doing, and it's all fine by me. When I finish my studies, we'll save money for a bit and then move out of the appartement his parents own. If out incomes combined are enough to not have financial problems, then there's no problem. And my field pays well, so it'll probably be alright.
wtf $8/ hour seems horrible, you should be paid more! I live in toronto and our minimum wage is $14 and to me that still seems too little. Anyyywayss. I wouldn't care if my boyfriend made minimum wage/only qualified for those kinds of jobs. (but that's just me) As long as he treated me well and was a nice guy. And if he was a good worker. I wouldn't like if he constantly called in sick (if he wasn't) and if he always got to work late and slacked off. If he was good at doing his job, if we had a connection, and if he was a nice guy then it wouldn't matter to me how much he makes or what kind of job he has.
I never slack off I'm harder worker and I'm very loyal.. people seem to think I'm a loser though..
I don't see why people would view you as a loser unless they were entitled and/or stuck up. Being a hard worker is (to me at least) way more important than how much money you make. So if someone doesn't want to be with you because you don't make enough, then they don't deserve you and it's good because you'll be able to weed out the assholes.
Thank you, You're very nice.
Minimum wage Jobs don’t mean you have to stay at entry level your whole life. You can move up to HR or Administrative, up the ranks if you learn the job well. You have so much potential as a human being, don’t keep yourself low. There’s nothing wrong w a minimum wage job, as long as you have goals to move up in life. It’s a plus for years of experience too.
It depends on the scenario but I'm likely not interested. Let's say that he has a great degree but can't find a job in that particular area. Taking anything to hold himself over while knowing he's still searching for something better is a reason why I be with the man. I can't think of any other.
Huh. As long as it isn't due to character flaws, I'm in.
No, I'm a loser though.
By what standard? Your hourly wage? I don't give a damn about it, and neither should you.
Yeah, And I dropped out of high school after one yearm
My boyfriend dropped out of high school. Relax.
See, this is why so many gentlemen within the Trumptarded community are incels.
What do you mean?
Depends on the age! If he's still young , taht's alright. if he's like 30 and still earning this, well, mate...
One of my coworkers is in his mid 30s making minimum wage and he still stays with his parents
He can always better himself.As long as it pays for what he wants in life, that's cool
Minimum wage means you barely get by if that lol
Re-read above. It tells you all you need to know on how I feel about it... Christ. *facepalm*
Damn, You don't need to be mean 😒😔
You learn to be when people don't read and use their brain a little bit...
That's enough. I know a woman who with her minimum wage boyfriend supports 3 young children as well as themselves. She works at McDonalds.
It would be a bit embarassing and frustrating but at least he's bringing in his share as would i. I'd still date em 🤷 we'd also try to do some networking tho
That's fine. If he wanted to get a higher education to qualify for other jobs I'd help him through it but ultimately his decision. I wouldn't push him
Well, I didn't even pass the first year of high school..
It’s fine but eventually you need to try to better yourself by whatever means you have, I can’t really judge anyone, I’m a college dropout.
Well, That's way better than being a loser high school dropout lol
I did that too lol, twice.
Cool, We're both losers.. We can form a losers club!! lmao
Losers unite lol. I did end up going back to high school but I just got like the basic diploma.
Still, bAny diploma is better than no diploma.. Lol
Oh yeah, it got me into college for a semester lol.
You probably have a way better job than my loser ass 😂😂
Nah. I’m a cashier.
Me too lol
I only make $8 an hour though
I make about 8.50 so not too far off.
You're really nice..
No, Thank you ☺☺
I think it's okay now - which I'm younger, but after college and all that jazz, I wouldn't want to be the one making all the money and the guy can barely support himself - I personally like males who are nerdy/smart and driven. I love intelligence.
Disappointed, but I’d deal with it if he had a plan to go to college and move up.
No plans for any of that..
I probably wouldn’t date him then.
Would you say he's a loser?
Based solely on job and education level, yeah
Okay, so based on that I'm a loser? Thanks for being honest.
You’re probably not a loser in other ways.
You could have a good personality or social life.
Personality yes.. But not much of a social life.. I pretty much do everything alone and don't have any friends.. I was a loser in high school too..
I wouldn't date a guy like that because I am training for a high earning profession. Please answer mine?Guys, which face has nicer features and why? ↗
It doesn't matter to me because I still gonna be working and we would bring in the money together to maintain the household.😅
Not a problem. I don't mind earning more than my partner
I wouldn't think anything about it. I think your okay.
money is no issue as long as I love him for who he is
I’d be okay with it as long as he had a plan to better himself
I'm sure a good girlfriend would support him and help him grow.
Is that person you?
How is your girlfriend reacting to it?
What girlfriend? I've only been on a few dates..
Well you didn't say you didn't have one.
A little embarassed as long as he is going to school to not have that job in the future I don't care though
I dropped out of high school after one year
yeah I could lie and act nice but in all honesty, I wouldn't be with someone who lives with their parents makes minimum wage and is a high school drop out
He wouldn't be my boyfriend
I can do better
What would you think about a guy like that?
He was poorly educated and unskilled
Would you think he's a loser?
Depends really. If it was the only thing he could do then yes
Money doesn't matter and it never has. The only thing that is important is the kind of person he is. I have dated guys before who earn barely any money at their employment. Personality is what's important
Gotta start somewhere
That's a yikes but that's nothing to break up over
Id be okay with that
I would sign him up for trade school
At least he’s working 🤷🏻♀️
Love is love.
