Why is on line dating so difficult
Most people will instantly become more uncomfortable around you when they find out that you are unemployed.Many will look at you with pity, and others will actually look at you with disdain.If things get bad enough, many women will pull the plug on their marriages and will get rid of their “unproductive” husbands.Last year, Time Magazine reported on a study that indicated that unemployed men were significantly more likely to get divorced than employed men were. I am just pointing out how hard things are for unemployed men in our society.So why does our society look down on unemployed men so much?Well, it is generally expected that men are supposed to be the “breadwinners” for their families.
If you have been unemployed for a long period of time, that can make social interactions even more awkward than normal.
For example, how many women have you ever heard declare how proud they are of their unemployed husbands?
Of course there are definitely situations where these roles are reversed and employed husbands are badgering their unemployed wives about getting a job, but in general our society tends to have a greater degree of tolerance for unemployed women than it does for unemployed men.
Many wives (and their extended families) simply do not understand that our economy has fundamentally changed.
In the old days just about any hard working man that wanted a job could go out and get one. Hopefully we can get more women to understand this.
But when I do think about it–when I think about all the times I come home to see evidence of his entire day’s activities cluttering the coffee table, or when I have to take our shared car to work and strand him at home because he doesn’t feel like getting up to drive me–I’m angry.
