Give them a chance & if they turn out to be lazy & not motivated to do anything with themselves then run as fast as you can! You don't want someone who is going to be a leech and have you support them your whole life.

OK he has foot problems and can't work he filed for disability two months ago and nothing has happen he also has a child with him and stays with me and I have two kids of my own I can't keep supporting everybody beginning to be to much on me..
Report as
99% of people who are "disabled" can find jobs around their disability ... EG, he can't stand due to foot problems, so gets a desk job ... but even so:

Dating? Maybe ... while they tried to find a job they *could* do, with their disability.

Living together? Oh HELL NO! Not unless they could pay their own way.

Depending on their situation, I'd probably hear them out first...

Well, if I liked them, I wouldn't be shallow and not be with them because they don't have cash.
But if I was looking to get into a serious relationship with them, I would try to talk them into getting a job depending on the situation, because that can easily cause a lot of problems.

I would get a job myself, though. You're not supposed to expect your boyfriend to support you. Support yourself. :)

i have tell you why it bothers me
Niki.. i have been cheated on in the past and i have a big big problem with that thats why im very protective of myself... i really think your great amazing your everything any guy can ask for but ... if you keep flirting like that with ice cream im sorry but no its too painful for me.. if i didn't know or talked to you i wouldn't care.. but i care i care a lot but its your choice thats the only thing that gets me upset even if its harmless i cant do it...
Report as
All those girls who cheated on you didn't deserve your time or affection
I understand why you have trust issues because you have a perfectly justified reason for it, but I need you to understand that I'm not that kind of girl, I don't cheat..and I hate that you use the word flirt because no matter what proof I have that we're not flirting, you don't believe it :/ and it's hard not being trusted before we were even able to start a relationship..
I'm sorry you feel that way..I liked you a lot but oh well..I guess everything happens for a reason :(
I hope there's no hard feelings, at least..:/
Report as
maybe flirting was a wrong choice.. and i do trust you ... but we talked about it and we said if anything bothers us we can tell each other so i did
Report as
i really don't want to lose you...
Report as
can i ask you something before i go and delete my account
Report as
yeah but you didn't just ask me you sort of attacked me :/
and now you're saying that you can't do this, and I can't afford to be accused of flirting everytime I talk to a friend that's a male..and the fact that you said I put you second hurt me because I've been making sure since our talk to do anything but that :/
you're confusing me..

wait, what?! yeah, ask, but why are you deleting??
Report as
i didn't mean to attack you or accuse you of anything.. if i did I'm so sorry .. you said that we are just friends but i want to be more and this is kind of hard to ask over the net with actually seeing you face to face but theres no other way to talk for now... so can we make this official ... niki since the first day we talked you amazed me with your smarts and humor this past few days have been intense but my feelings for you are loyal pure and true would you be my girlfriend...?
Report as
wait, gabe...now I'm super duper confused :/

I don't understand..you were just telling me how you can't do this anymore and you said you're gonna delete your account but first you want me to be your girlfriend..? i'm not saying no, I just feel scatter brained.. >.<
Report as

Report as

Report as

...under two conditions ok?

1.) please don't think i'm flirting with bestoflife anymore..unless I really am..:/ I already explained to you, I don't vaguely flirt or "beat around the bush"..i'm very straight forward when I flirt
2.) i'm not so sure how you're gonna feel about answering this..:/ but I think it matters..how old are you?? if you don't wanna answer ok, but I'm not sure I could be with you without knowing because if you're like 12 and stuff it's wrong :/

I personally wouldn't. I wouldn't want to be the one paying for everything- all the dates and what have you. It should be 50-50.

No, I always dated within the airline I work for that way we both fly for free and can go "non-reving" together, which means we can get on a plane fly to wherever we want to go for free :-)

It depends on the person. When I met my husband he was unemployed and filing for bankruptcy. He was actively looking for employment. By the time we got married he had taken a job he hated and didn't pay much, but he kept looking. He found a job he loves and we are doing quite well. So as long as the person has the drive to improve their situation, I would say yes. If they go around blaming everyone for them being unemployed, no.

It depends on why he wasn't working. Things are pretty tough for a lot of people so if he's trying to find a job and not lazy then yes I would date him. If it's due to laziness then definitely NO.

If they were in between employment, that is understandable. But someone unemployed permanently? Nope.

Depends on why they dont have a job? Just lost one and looking? If you find out they are just lazy and bums the answer is heck no you didnt take him or her to raise!

No because they are probably lazy and living off the government, not even WANTING to get a job.

I would help someone out of that situation, but I am not completely sure I would date them. If they were a person that did have money but spent it right away on like food and bills I would probably date them and help them out with money situations, but I don't think I could date someone whom had no money at all and had no income what so ever. I would probably seem like I was dating them to ease my conscious and that is not me at all. I would rather help a person then seem like a self obsessed priss.
