all those reasonably attractive female commenters that say “oh im not materialistic” , “oh i dont mind going on dutch” , “character matters most”, “i dont need a condo” etc
Trust me they wont go out or marry a guy that is earning less than 4k.
This is because Even when they say want to stay in hdb, they want a big enough hdb and good location enough hdb which once again cost >600k . In addition, They still expect to be wined and dined, and with yearly regional trips and occasional staycations and gifts/flowers etc.
However you still have play the game. The reason is while you earn 4k, you also need their 4k
Ultimately society is quite realistic. While money cannot do everything, but without money you cant do anything.
Here are what netizens think:
- You kpkb so much for what. Then keep dating someone who would accept you. There’s a lid for every pot. Say you’re rated at 5 or 6 by others but you think you’re 7 and you aim to date girls who are a 8. These girls will also choose to date someone who they think is on par or upwards mah. No meh.
- Everyone has market. Just some have more to sell than others. End of day, like with marketing and sales, everyone should be a little more self aware and promote yourself to the right audience. Sometimes it’s not the “product” isn’t good, but the audience targeting is poor or you don’t clearly understand how to present what you have to offer. In some cases, some people don’t even know what’s truly special about themselves. In the case of the latter, better to do self discovery than to search for another half.
- I have take home income of about $4k, and there is barely any disposable income left after expenses.
- Thats why have to choose carefully. Even less than 4k, u can have a life that u n ur partner wanted. For women who says like that, they just wants u to support their lifestyle while they can spend more with their own . Win win for them while u rest in peace. Find someone who knows what hardship means and who will be there for u when u are at ur lowest and same goes for u be there for her when she is at her lowest. That is the real support u both need. Moneywise everything can be planned together, give n take la. not take everything then when not happy one is earning less, go and ditch that person n find who earn more. That kind of happiness wont last and who knows in turn the person who earn more may treat u the same as the person u have ditched.
