If I knew the person was actively searching for another job I would but I would expect and hope if we went out they would not expect me to pay all the time
May be !cela dépend…
i don’t date right now anyway so nope
If someone is special, I dont mind to take them for a date.
I have in the past now if someone is retired with a great pension and in great health, not a smoker, not a drinker, a sincere Christian man sure I would date him.
If he had a good personality and to do stuff around the house, it would be okay.
Well I am not a bigot and I actually care about anyone I care about, so obviously yes, except for the fact that I would never “date”.
I think of you enjoy each others company and are happy with each other keep dating to see where it could go
I think if they are receptive of support from you with a sense of independence and self direction, then the couple could use the situation as a building block as opposed to an obstacle. In the event you meet someone who is unemployed, again I find it depends on the direction you both see as a couple and for yourselves and decide how to proceed from there. I would not let something so minuscule deter you from something that could be so rewarding in so many ways.
It’s sometimes temporary. I have actually been unemployed. No one ever seemed to ask or comment on my employment. I commend people who look beyond pettiness and cherish friendships.
If the circumstance was justifiable. And they were honestly looking…maybe..
I don’t look at someone, based on their financial standing in this world.
Everyone has a story. And not everyone’s situation is the same. It’s what is inside that matters. A person can be looking for work, and hasn’t been hired. They could be disabled. They may have been downsized, laid off, or something, beyond their control. You can’t look at a person for face value. If you do, you’d cheat yourself out of knowing a wonderful person.
Before you point out the splinter in another person’s eye, remove the plank from your own eye.
Of course! As long as they are also incredibly handsome, totally funny and creative,kind,smart,and extremely generous with all that money from their trust fund. You did say unemployed, you didn’t say broke,right?
Good point 🙂
it all depends on if they have the drive to get up everyday and go out and look another job or have a plan to open up there own business. he or she as to have a mind set that they need a job and want one to move our life along.
If they are unemployed and trying to better themselves in other ways.
I am unemployed, through no fault of my own, so I make jewelry, things for the fairy garden, custom orders , repairs. I also sew for people, prom dresses, wedding dresses, clothing for kids, quilts and many other bits and pieces. Knit, crochet, and loads of other things that help my income. If the man is unemployed, like I am, I’d date him.
Yes but only to search and gets a job in the year we are together if by 6 months no luck .then too bad cant help u anymore cant have a slob walking around with me lol
As long as there is potential, ambition about their life, yes. A person’s circumstances does not define who they are.
No I definitely wouldn’t
Hate to say it, but there would have to be a hell of a lot of potential and a lot of drive on the person’s part. I want a person who pays their bills and does not live beyond their means. I agree that a person’s circumstances does not necessarily define who they are, but their actions and how they rise above adversity does define them totally. Unfortunately I do want love, but it has to come with a person of good character and that also says a good credit score. If you live within your means you are never really poor.
As long as they are really trying to get one. It also depends on who the person is.
as long as they treat me good all is well
as long as they are trying to I would date them as long as they are trying
how can earn money??
When they dont have income they depend on me i been in many relationships where i lost alot of money pleaseing them and now i have to find extra cash to get out of my situation.
yes because i d’ont want to lose a good person to be the love of my life
So long as it was temporary, or they had some other form of legal income coming in… After the last situation I was in however, I wouldn’t be fast to say yes…
As long as he/she’s a good person it doesn’t mean i think he’s unemploy he will stay unemploy for the rest of his/her life, and besides it’s only a date.possibility after dating that person he/she will influence by you and find job straight away, 🙂
well if they was at least signed up to Vindale then I would definitely date them.
I say it depends. Did they lose their job just because of a bad time or are they unemployed and not looking? I would say it depends!
It would depend on the reason they are unemployed. I am not employed and am drawing my social security, because I am physically disabled now. I worked all my life up until almost 3 years ago. I started getting bad pains in my lower back. It hurt to stand for very long. At the time I was working one part time job 16 hours a week and a full time job, where I had to work in place of people who called in sick or didn’t call in at all. The full time job required me to be on my feet the whole shift. Before I found out why I was in so much pain, I was working almost 70 hours a week at the full time job. I believe all the hard work I’ve done in my life caused me to break down, although I had reached 54 years old. I have been diagnosed with arthritis, but I am not sure if it is Rheumatoid or Osteoporosis. One doctor said one kind and another doctor said the other kind. I just know I have arthritis and degenerative disk disease. This makes it very painful for me to stand or walk for more than a few short minutes at a time. To make a long story short. If someone had worked all their life and had to start drawing social security like me, I would date them. If they were temporarily laid off a job, I would date them. If they just wouldn’t work, I would tell them bye bye.
Why wouldn’t i?
I’m disabled and have to live with my mom because I don’t so certain things on my own. It would depend on why he is unemployed. Some people don’t technically “work” but still have income or goals or ambitions. They could be in college or a writer or something along those lines.
The purpose of dating is to get to know each other not to get his/her income. Dating is not who has more money or not.
Maybe, say for example he was just laid off. If he’s currently working hard at getting another one and not complacent.
yes as long as they have a life outside their home. My mom told me this” There are a few things u should ask a man on the first date, one is what do u do in your free time? and do u have close friends? bc if he stays at home doin nothing but watching tv and doesnt have company, he might be a serial killer, or hell drive u crazy:$
