This girl is really cute but poor... would you have a serious relationship with a waitress?

I actually see why your concern is. It could become an issue, e.g., if she thinks you are throwing money in her face. Was in a similar boat. I was cautious at first because I thought she just wanted to date a dude with spending money. Turned out she was always trying hard to fit in with my lifestyle. We dated for 6 or 7 months, it was fun but we broke it off because we just had different career goals. There were some awkward moments but we both were open and willing to work through them. I learned a lot about NYC dating her though, there is a lot we miss out on when we travel/expense/buy conveniences for a living.

Aside what others have already mentioned, I consider their families too. Are they a bailout waiting to happen (liability) or a strong cornerstone? Bailing that degenerate little brother out of jail and paying legal fees and stuff like that could cause relationship issues down the road. Examples like this are why I look not only at them and their goals and ambitions. Before I get any hate for this... my reason for thinking this way is so that I can preserve family money and put it good use on the future generation(s) of spoiled brats I might spawn someday.

Date her and get a sense of where she is going. I sold shoes. My wife sold shoes.

I am now a SM, my wife is the best possible mother to my children. After kids are a bit older, she is jumping back into the working pool.

You need to look at all of the virtues of her as a partner in your life. She may be bad for other reasons, but being a waitress is not one of them.

You don't know what she does when she isn't waitressing. She could be doing something else on the side and only doing this job so she can pay bills in the meantime. She could also be in school. so judge not. If she's not your cup of tea then let it go

I think if OP had phrased this post a little differently, then it would have gotten less negative feedback. Plus OP how do you know she's poor, did she explicitly tell you this?

P1 it is a legitimate question. Massive differences in starting familiar wealth or income causes additional issues to a relationship.

Thanks D4. Got really bashed around here which is understandable. Obviously I really like this person but it sucks that only I pay for things and she is uncomfortable about herself and her career.
