No Money, No Honey: Unemployed Men Are Deal Breakers for Some Women

Even in the face of the tough economy and high unemployment rate, studies have revealed that women believe that unemployment is a deal breaker in dating a man.


Of course it’s not uncommon for people looking for a relationship to keep a mental checklist of qualities required of their potential lovers, but a recent survey revealed that a whopping 75 percent of women had problems with dating an unemployed man.


In a survey, sponsored by  “FeaturedDate® Matchmaking Agency” we surveyed 925 single women and asked them a controversial & thought provoking question.


Would you date a unemployed man?


Our results found that only 4 percent of those surveyed answered “YES”


“Not having a job will definitely make it harder for men to date someone they don’t already know,”


* 75 percent of women who had problems with dating a man without a job;



33 percent said that unemployment was a deal breaker that cannot be overlooked;



* But a generous 43 percent said they would consider dating someone who was unemployed only if he was “getting back on track” to securing employment;



However, the survey revealed that men were far more open-minded when it comes to dating a woman without a job.


The survey revealed that almost:


  • * Two out of every three men are open to dating a woman without a job;


  • * 19 percent saying that there was no problem at all;


  • * 46 percent saying that they would but was also interested in knowing how the women spent their time;


Research has also shown that women were more concerned with men being “engaged in cheating activity” rather than having a huge paycheck. On the other hand, other women are afraid that dating an unemployed man will come with financial obligations.
