For years the way of America was, girl looking for a match would be looking for a working man.
Someone who would be bringing in an income, of any sort, and had an education to himself.
Then the Lakewood Craze hit.
The boys stopped going to college, and started learning 24/7.
Living off Mommy and Daddy's money.
Them, and their wives, and their 17 kids. And 9 grand kids. All living off those parents/grandparents monies.
And now, this is affecting me.
"How?", you may ask.
Well, you are lucky enough for me to tell you.
I am not a "learner".
I went to college. Finished college with a Bachelors Degree, and then went into the workforce.
And because of this life style, I never was able to find a set time to learn every day/week/etc.
Now I am looking for a "shidduch". Be it through friends, or the multitude of money-wasting websites online.
And every girl is looking for the same thing.
A guy who is learning.
If you have an education, and a job, you aren't quite what they are looking for.
Well girls, all I can say is, "I hope Mommy and Daddy have a lot of money to support you through life."
All I can say from my point of view: More of these "sheltered girls" need to go out, get actual educations, and come back to us Working Men.
