I’ve been dating around a lot, and no one impresses me. But recently, I met a guy who’s really great and I think I like him, though it’s too soon to say for sure. The thing is, he just got laid off, and though he is curious and interesting, I’m not sure he’s that ambitious. I myself am a broke artist, so it seems like our future could be fraught with monetary misery. Should I cut it off with him while it’s still new, and pursue better options? Thanks for the help!
There are two types of scrubs: scrubs with aspirations, and scrubs who are scrubs for scrubs sake (also known as busters). Lots of great guys are scrubs with aspirations. It’s not their fault, per se; they could be doing something really cool with their time, but sadly, this world doesn’t throw itself at the feet of creative people who make beautiful things. If the scrub you speak of is in this category, then you might not want to throw him to the curb so hastily.
Two other important things to consider: there’s a fine line between a scrub who says they’re doing something and someone who is actually a hard worker. Don’t jump into anything until you figure out what category this dude falls into. Also, do you appreciate what he does with his time? Do you think he’s making cool shit, or is he getting it all wrong? I personally think it’s impossible to be with someone who is doing something that I don’t admire. Just be discerning, because you deserve the best scrub ever.
