    I was talking with a girl recently who said she faced a bit of a dilemma in dating: a lot of guys with good jobs in London are those who have jobs that make them work very long hours (bankers, lawyers, etc) and relationships with someone like that can be difficult if they have limited time to spend with her.

    At the same time of course there are guys who work jobs with easier hours but they might not be making the same kind of money/bonuses. Obviously it's not as clear cut as this, saying that all guys fit into these two categories.

    But girls if you had to choose between these two extremes, who would you choose as a date/partner? And what could a guy who works a busy job do to make up for the time they are unable to spend with you? (I ask as I'm in a bit of a situation like this myself)

    How about you work yourself then? It's 2016, if you're seriously still relying on men to work whilst you stay at home then you dont deserve a successful and ambitious man.

    And how can you even have the audacity to say this lmao

    Oh my. What happened to the days of being attracted to someone because of their personality? It's all about money nowadays isn't it. Such a shame. Every man needs to avoid women like this, you will not be happy.

    Don't worry then as long as you have that dough coming in you can get most girls you desire with your attitude and socialising won't be a problem.

    why on earth should i care about his job. only the stuck up kind make a big deal out of that. those who want an actual good relationship with the man judge him by his nature and the way he treats her, not by how much he makes.

    he needs to have A job so that he doesn't leech of me but i don't care what type it is or how much he makes

    the ones who tend to go for women like this are the ones who are equally as hollow on the inside. i mean have you ever see a man be a sugardaddy to a middle aged average looking woman? she always has to be young, dumb and fake, fake, fake

    they are both made for each other if you ask me

    Couldn't agree more. I truly despise people who put money above everything. It's just so sad.
