Dating is a hot topic at any age but I think it really gets heated for both men and women around the mid-30 age. This is the age, whether you like it or not, you say to yourself “I gotta eventually pick a wife/husband out of one of these psychos”.
Yesterday, as usual, I was at work getting paid to look at a machine while starting shit on FB. One of the topics was relationships where women make more than the man. My response was that it was unnatural, and that if I was in said relationship, it would fuck with me. Ofcourse, women went crazy and tried to “tear me a new one” in the comments section.
I stand strong on my opinion but let me clarify. First, I said it would FUCK WITH ME. That’s it. I’m not crazy, if a beautiful woman with “Oprah Money” showed interest in me, ofcourse I’d date her…buuuuuuut I’d be the most in school, selling candy bars at work, weed business on the side, picking up pennies, recycling cans nigga you ever met trying to close the earning gap! What can I say? I’m a cave man. I man. I stronger.
If you’re a woman reading this and you think this is the dumbest shit ever, then you’re right, it is but you gotta understand a man’s ego. It’s a very real and important thing to us. I’ll give you a good example:
Lets say I meet a chick, get her number, we hit it off and we decided to go on a first date. I’m blue collar in the 30k-50k range(just like real life), she’s in the 90k-110k range. She’s a Bears fan/I’m a Bears fan. Our first date, I surprise her and say I bought tickets to Bears vs. Packers game: $100 per ticket for nosebleed seats. I also explain how the tickets “set a nigga back” but she’s worth it. After I tell her about the tickets she says “Oh it’s cool, get your money back, I buy two season tickets on the 50 yard line every year.”
Women took the last statement as “She’s so nice”. Men took it as “Put them cheap ass tickets back in your pocket, lil man”
I got two situations where I think I would have no problem at all if a woman made significantly more than I did:
#1: Grade school teachers, in my opinion are notoriously underpaid. If I was in a career that I felt was my true passion in life, like some teachers, then I wouldn’t care. If I felt like I was put on this earth to teach kids/artist/policemen/missionary/soldier or something similar, where I’m not in it for the money, then to me that’s an exception.
#2. I’ve been with my GF/wife for years and then she comes into alot of money/starts business/ etc…to me we we’re already one unit and that wouldn’t mess with me.
I’m talking me meeting someone now already making almost double what I make. 10-20K more really doesn’t make a difference. I’m talking 50k-100k or more.
“Marcus, you’re being silly. It’s about love and building things together.” Ladies, what if you were physically stronger than your man? What if you could literally, bare knuckle, beat your man up in hand to hand combat? That wouldn’t mess with you on a primitive male/female level? C’mon now. This problem is all a bigger example of the jelly jar situation. Jelly jar? You know, when a woman can’t get the lid off the jelly jar and you call your man from the other room. He come’s in and twists it off no prob. You’d be surprised about how manly that makes men feel.That’s the thing. MEN like to feel like MEN. I’M NOT SAYING DUMB YOURSELF DOWN, ladies. Not at all. If you feelin a dude that makes less than you then that’s cool, great! I applauded your non-materialism. I’m just trying to help you understand.
Let’s say I met Wonder Woman. Not a wonder woman…THE Wonder Woman. Invisible jet, blue boy shorts, big titties and all. I throw game on WW, she feelin me. Sooner or later she blesses me with hot passionate sex. I peel those star boy shorts off and she got a fat ass underneath. FAT. She whispers “I want you to hit it from the back”, I’m like “hell yeah.”
I get behind and TRY to go to work on her super strength ass….to no avail. SHE’S STRONGER THAN ME! I can’t fuck Wonder Woman! I go to pull her hair and she whips her head and dislocates my shoulder! That’s IF I can even penetrate her!
I got to let Wonder Woman go….won’t work.
