Does Jobless Equate Increased Need to Date? Even worse: Can you think of a more unattractive statement to state on a first date?? I can't. Most men I've met do not really want to date an intelligent, independent, professional woman - much less one that is also unemployed. Or maybe the unemployed factor overcomes the independent issue - suddenly I need support - emotional and/or financial. Is that what a man really wants - to be 'needed'? If so, sign me up. My friends have been telling me to sign up for one of the online dating sites. That the expense would be worth the free dinners my dates would buy, and hell, I have so much more time on my hands now that I'm not working. Two problems with that scenario. I still have issues with "expecting" a man to pay and looking for a job is actually more time consuming than a job. But maybe we could call it networking ... hmmmmmm. There's an idea.

Currently, I don't have the energy for both. I can date or I can go on interviews. I choose the latter for now. I have a mortgage to pay. Unless, of course, there is some really hot, super kind, sugar daddy out there that wants to support me for a while during my job search. Any takers?
