Yes, I agree with all you said. I actually deleted this post after feeling like I was ranting due to mood. Then I chatted with the girls here on the chat thingy and felt better. I was a bit surprised actually that you all responded to a post I thought I had deleted! It even deleted it from my feed.
But yes, it wasn’t well written, totally agree with that! I stated income here to you folks not to try to impress anyone (I’m not trying to date anyone here lol), and 15% is peanuts here in California as a single wage earner. Dual income households make plenty more, so it’s no bragging monetarily that’s for sure. I agree money doesn’t buy love, it’s impossible, but I’m also not naive to think that no stability or means to provide for a partner in life is particularly an attractive quality. I could be wrong.
Point is, unless I’m already married which I’m not, starting this CD journey has significantly reduced my marketability in the dating world. This entire 2 years choosing to be single and not dating a soul has been quite the deep dive. I made poor choices in women, I absolutely know that… so saving a woman from her troubles is absolutely off the table. She’s gotta be independent and have a solid job. But now I added she has to be perfectly happy with a feminine man? I think that combo is next to impossible.
