Dating while unemployed and looking for a job? Have a take on this?

Asked by hiphiphopflipflapflop (6093points) May 14th, 2009

Yes, I may have to relocate if I get a job and that is a potential problem if things actually work out. But I’m tired of continually waiting for a period in my life when I have all my ducks in a row.

Try to get the girl and the job and if they both work out maybe she will move with you if needed

Waiting to get all your ducks in a row- push past it otherwise you’ll look back and realize you could have done things just fine. It’s my opinion that it’s better to try and maybe flop than to not try at all.

No job, no girlfriend. That’s my motto lately.

if she wants to be with you, she’ll be with you no matter what.

well, to a certain point. you gotta keep looking.

Job first.
Girlfriend later.

The latter is much much easier when you have the prior.

You can’t wait for the perfect moment, you could be waiting forever. And I always worry if I would recognize it when it comes??? And if you find the perfect person, it will work out somehow.

There’s no lying, it will be harder without a job. But not impossible by any means. I just think it’s a major turn-off knowing the person could leave at any time when I’m at a point in my life where it isn’t an option. The right girl will look past the joblessness, but the relocation issue is a bigger problem.

“Well each beautiful thing I come across tells me to stop moving and shake this riddle off, oh well

There was a time when all I wanted was my ice cream cold and a little cream soda, oh well, oh well

And a wooden box and an alley full of rocks was all I had to care about, oh well, oh well, oh well”

I’m curious, do men look askance at unemployed women? I’d feel embarrassed to say I didn’t have a job right now if I met an attractive fellow. If you’re looking or otherwise using your time wisely, it should be OK, right?

You just do low-cost things together for a while.

Tell people your an artist. Nobody will care if your working.

Go out, have fun, see people. Only engage in “exclusive” relationship if that’s what’s working, otherwise just be social.

you need some art to back it up though (be it music, painting, something to say this is what I do)

Being unemployed is not an art although some people make an art out of staying unemployed!

Good point!
Go to the local thrift shop, buy some ugly cheap paintings and a easel . Put some dirty rags all over the floor. That should do the trick..!

Also, musician is a good back up plan!
