Rich man, poor man whats wrong with dating a nice poor man?
I have been dating a really nice guy for a few months - however, I don't know where the future is going. He does not have a career and is really a musician. So to make ends meet he works all kinds of odd jobs. He is super interesting and good to me. He does'nt have much money for dates but he does pay wherever we go. My friends are pressuring me to drop him. They say there is no future with a guy who does not make money. I work and make more than him by far and I don't make that much! I was married to a wealthy guy who was super stingy and controlling in a loveless marriage. So, I feel lucky that I found someone that I like to be with. They say to dump him for someone more stable with a home and career because I will end up supporting this guy if we stay together and in the future try to build a life together.

That last time I picked and choosed my men based on what my friends thought I was in 11th grade. You are in my age group, do what you want.

If he makes you happy, then go for it. As long as you dont make money an issue if your relationship goes into a marriage. I was recently dating a 30 year old man who only has a high school diploma, is NOT empolyed, as NO place of his own to live, and NO car. At first I thought it was okay but after about a month, I got real tired of taking him where he needed to go, and hearing him say he didnt have this and that. I didnt want to date a SON, I want a MAN. So its more like, whatever floats your boat.
