Hey. I'm a 20 y.o. entrepreneur and I make low 6-figures.
I've never dated. I work entirely w/ international clients so I have almost no opportunity to socialize locally, but I'd like to start dating and I have a few questions.
1) How might I portray my work/income?
20 y.o. entrepreneur invites more questions than I'd like. I'm a private individual and I live frugally with my parents. The median household income in the region is $60-70k. Everything I make goes back into my company right now, so I'm reluctant to represent my income even at that level tbh, but I'd like to not come off as a NEET.
2) How do I go about dating locally?
The goal is a LTR. I get the general sentiment here is against those, but at least a long-term fwb, because I'd like to minimize the time spent on discovery. I don't drink or smoke, I run, I sleep at 8:30 and I wake up at 4:30. I work from 4:30 AM to 1 PM 7 days a week, and I prep for sleep starting at 7 PM each day. Point is, routine has been my religion, and I'm unwilling to give that up. Given these restrictions, I'm not sure how to approach dating at all without interfering with my discipline, which is a cornerstone in my work output. Most social venues don't work for my schedule, so online dating seems the only way to go, but I don't have the time to sift through it all and filter for what I like, & my pictures don't sell well enough that the ROI on my time is worth it.
I believe my best option right now is to take better pictures since I have no intention of using my income to get women.
May be possible that the best option is to just focus and NOT date, but that's an excuse that can only crop up more often as my business grows. Organic meetings are far too scarce for that to work either.
3) I have no plans to, but I'm curious whether someone making 6-figures should reveal their income, since it's a signal for ability to provide well, which is attractive to all women, not just golddiggers.
