A significant majority of women said they would not date a man who was unemployed.Just one-third of men said they would date an unemployed woman.
The research found that women were more concerned with men being "engaged in an activity" rather than having a huge paycheck."Even at my age, 75, and dating if you can believe it if a man is not employed, volunteering, involved in life it's a deal breaker," Patricia Weaver, a 75-year-old film maker said in a statement.
Other women are afraid that dating an unemployed man will come with financial obligations."While my heart goes out to people who are unemployed or under-employed in this economy," said another woman, Carole Bartholomeaux, in the press release.
Forty-six percent of men responded they would date an unemployed woman.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Jason Weberman, CPCC, a dating and relationship expert with North Star Coaching, indicates a study conducted by Match.com, and his own experience, to point out women statistically value employment and financial security in a mate much more than the other way around.
