If you think all women want is money, you should not date at all if you have none.

I do think that, sadly, the vast majority of women want guys to have more money than I do. I think that "no money, no honey" is true.

I think most women want men who are employed. If you are employed then I don't think it matters how much you make. As long as you have income. It's not because women are greedy but because they don't want to take on people to support them. I'd say it's true for men too. I doubt they want women to mooch off them.

I met my husband online actually, on eharmony. No I wasn't looking for money. We make the same amount of money. We have similar career, and he is great. And so am I lol

What was she doing though? If she was a CEO of sorts then perhaps she wouldn't date a dishwasher. But if she was in a similar trade? then why wouldn't she? Are you looking for certain type of women?

Where the heck are the guys with money on the internet looking for wives? Point me there.

I only find those who just rolled out of bed / took a photo / and who want me to like them for them and their dishwashing hair net.

Try eharmony. Lots of professional men with stable incomes. They might not be rich but they are employed with incomes. Match has them too but they have ton of scammers. Scammers don't last on eharmony because how the process is set up.

It's great to meet people off online but it depends on one's life style and age. My profession and hobbies are all female oriented and I didn't know any single men at the time. I know lots of people who meet online. It's doable.

Default Annnnnd... maybe not

We ended up having another conversation about my career, and she a little bit changed her mind. She might still want to go out.

It might be reasonable for me to think "ok, but now I don't want to go out with her". I don't know yet if that's how I feel. Some considerations.
  • She was just being honest about what she wants in a date. We call have our own preferences, many of which don't seem very enlightened if you have to say them out loud.
  • Money does count, and women in our society tend to view boyfriends as potential providers or at least financial partners.
  • Nobody's perfect, and I could do worse than be with someone who is honest.
  • I still kinda like her.
