With more people getting the pink slip, that does not mean the jobless singles do not have the right to mingle. And sometimes, guys are afraid that women may find them "incapable" if they learn that the man does not have a job. Is their fear valid?
To some extent, yes. Arranging a date not only requires your full attention and affection, you also need to shell out some money especially if you plan on taking her to a casual dinner downtown. Although waiting until landing a job and have gotten settled before posting an online dating profile may be a good idea, it would not hurt to take the chance. Here are some suggestions:
Make sure you are ready to date
It may not only wiser to hold off posting a profile while you are jobless, but also if you have not already ironed out your past relationship issues.
Keep it honest
If you think it is okay for you to post your dating profile then do not strike out important details that may sway someone from contacting you. It does not necessarily mean you need to say you are currently out of work (you can inform your date about it until your second date), but at the same time you may want to avoid answering about your job status if you are not earning anything at the moment.
Seek free dating services
Make use of free dating sites wherever possible. If you are not getting the results you want, maybe a few inexpensive pay-per-use sites may not hurt. And when you do meet someone online, think of practical dating ideas. Remember, dating should be fun, but it should not break your budget.
