Women Claim Cash is not Important
Women don't want millionaires. They don't want high-earners. In fact they don't even want a man with a salary.
A survey published yesterday said women claim money is unimportant when choosing a partner.
Someone here, as Alan Clark once said, is being economical with the actualité.
A staggering 83 per cent of women questioned by First Direct said they would be happy to go out with a man who earned much less than them or was unemployed.
On the dating tick-list, did not a job always come under the "essentials" section, along with a sense of humour and original hair and teeth?
Kath Parrington, of First Direct, said: "This is a reflection of the fact that women are taking more control of their own finances and are more independent."
The survey found that 93 per cent of women would not turn a man down just because he was not a high earner. Only three per cent said they would consider breaking up with someone who did not earn enough.
