I've suddenly realised something that I guess I "knew" but didn't really "know" until now.
I know, I know, it sounds stupid. And it will seem obvious to every woman in here, so get ready for some eye rolling (maybe start warming them up now).
Okay, it's no known secret within these walls and with friends outside cyberspace that I haven't dated in ages.
I'm a little more cautious about taking that next step as I'd prefer to get know someone better before taking the plunge. It helps sift through the first 6 months or so of "playing nice" when dating.
As some people have made mention before on this blog, that type of thinking is pretty lame: you can still date someone and know within a few dates whether it's worthwhile pursuing.
Ok, I agree.
The sparks will be there, or they won't. If they're not, move on... there's plenty more women out there.
But then I thought within myself: Yeah, but I don't really have anything to offer any woman. Women want stability. I'd better do the honourable thing and find a way to get that stable income. You know what they say - "No romance without finance."
Now while I do think there's definitely some validity to this, I'm beginning to realise something.
WOMEN DON'T CARE!
I've only got to look at my sister, look at some of my female cousins, see the thousands of other women on this planet and see that they all date absolute LOSERS! And these women I know aren't ugly - my sister, and one cousin especially, are wanted by many men!
And yet they're dating broke blokes (or is that broken blokes considering some are emotionally unstable??) - they aren't financial stabile, have no real direction in life, and yet... and yet... these guys get the chics! And some of these guys can't even carry an intelligent conversation let alone spell the word intelligent!!
I know I'm not rich, but I also know I'm not on the poverty line.
So why am I waiting for X amount of dollars to be in my bank account before dating after being in Y job for Z years????
How superficial must I think women are if they're only interested in your wallet??
How thick am I, huh??
*slaps forehead again*
(Don't get me entirely wrong here ladies, I'm not going on the dole! LOL)
