As a parent, if your teenage daughter wanted to date a boy from a poorer background, would you


forbid it? The premise here is that boys from poorer backgrounds have absolutely nothing to offer girls from more affluent backgrounds. In essence, it would be a losing battle to say the least. Going to movies and other activities involve monies which such boys do not simply have. Furthermore, if something disastrous would occur, he would not have the socioeconomic wherewithal to get her out of a difficult situation. In addition to the aforementioned instances, boys from poorer socioeconomic background often have diametrically opposite goals, aspirations, and desires.

    THANK YOU, you have eloquently my premise regarding the issue. Poor boys are liabilities to the MORE AFFLUENT GIRL. Such boys simply have opposite goals to that of the more affluent among us. AFLLUENT GIRLS should only date AFFLUENT BOYS!

    Well, YOU are the minute exception to poor boys who become wildly successful. The average poor boy does not have the drive nor care about bettering himself. Poor boys are harmful all around- a liability which only depreciates as time passes!

    Money is THE IMPORTANT COMPONENT in society. Without money, one does not survive! No one should settle and only strive for the best and that should include relationships. An affluent girl would be totally unwise if she dated a poor boy!

    Now YOU figure that out. If a girl gets into an indelicate situation while dating a poor boy, she is up a creek without a paddle. This poor boy CANNOT HELP her get out of the morass but an AFFLUENT boy can! Poor boys spell TROUBLE, simple!

    Micadeolu, you are a woman after my own heart. Many young girls realize TOO LATE how perilous such a relationship is. Such girls enter into quite sorrowful situations. A poor boy can only mean NO GOOD, HARM, and A RUINED FUTURE !

    In many cases,a poor boy is a risk for an affluent girl.She has been inculcated w/different priorities & life choices than the poor boy.The poor boy in all likelihood will be anti-success & anti-achievement.His goals will be DIVERGENTLY diffe

    Duffsmom, while I understand your premise, the average poor boy has no long term goals and aspirations. The average poor boy gets nowhere in life while the average affluent girl has high aspirations and goals. Poor boys are just a bad bet period!

    Yes, say no and explain the negative consequence of your daughter dating such a boy. I , for one, see no positive outcome whatsoever in a dating match between an aflluent girl and a poor boy! This boy has NOTHING TO OFFER your daughter !

    Well, I understand your premise on this issue, to put it succinctly poor boys have absolutely nothing to offer more affluent girls. They have nothing in common and such relationships are doomed from the start and considered to be an utter waste!

    Yeah I have to say, I've dated "well off" men and they all had entitlement issues. They are used to getting what they order, so they buy you dinner and expect first date sex. I prefer men with character built by having a normal life.
