Can A Broke Man Find Love?Mar 22nd, 2010 | Author: admin | Category: Fly Letters
What’s Up Fly Guy,
I have read your articles and I’m an avid reader. I must say that coming to your website has been really interesting. Here is my situation: I just recently became single, after being with someone off and on for like 5 years. I tried to work on things with her, but she had a serious addiction to alcohol that I just couldn’t deal with. Also, she lacked any real ambition, which was something that I definitely could not deal with. I haven’t spoken to her in over 4 months now, and I must admit that I’m starting to become lonely.
In saying that, the past 3 years have been a sacrifice for me, since I have been in graduate school full-time at a prestigious university here in Washington, DC. My question for you is this: since I am a full-time graduate student with limited funds, what should I do? It’s hard to date when you’re barely making ends meet. I mean, I’m handsome, neat, clean, no kids, no drama, and very ambitious. Give me some advice or help!
What’s up College Guy,
The best advice that I can give you is to stop dwelling on what you don’t have … in your case, it’s finances. As men, we have to get out of the habit of thinking that we’re not good enough to date a woman unless we make a certain amount of money. That’s false.
In my opinion, the true measure of your worth has less the do with the amount of money that you make, and more to do with how you spend what you do have. So use those limited resources to pull off some creative date ideas. Trust me; if you do that and handle your business in other areas of the relationship, then a woman won’t leave you because of your bank account balance. And if she does, then she wasn’t for you anyway.
So the best advice that I can give you is to get out there, meet new women, and embrace all of the great qualities that you do have. I’m sure that your financial outlook will change in due time. Good luck and I hope this helps.
