Dating unemployed men
Whether or not someone is employed may mean everything or nothing, but is not enough information just in itself.
With that said, I do expect my partner to support themselves and have a degree of financial independence - I've never wanted to be a breadwinner.
Many women said they fear there will be a financial obligation if they dated someone who is out of work, while others said they feared their activities would be constricted by an unemployed man's financial limitations.
It's not just about money, life coach and filmmaker Patricia Weaver said, it is about being with a man who is engaged in something.

I personally think that if someone will dismiss you as a dating option simply because of being unemployed, that person is not worth your time anyway.Unless your dating pool is very restricted, no single factor should disqualify you completely.
