Sad that she thinks that matters. Another glimpse at how society is hung-up on materialistic, superficial, and keeping up with the Jones.
It has always been that way.

it may.

The physical state of a person's dwelling can tell a lot about that. Untidiness denotes being disorganised, which whilst per se is not bad, may be problematic for others.

Broken furniture, dirty sidewalks, dog poop, smelly walls, these could put a lot of people off. though to be fair, it may depend on the person and his/her own values and attitudes.

If the neighborhood is not dangerous and the person lives in a tidy place, I'd date him. I rehab residences in low to moderate income neighborhoods and they look so beautiful inside I can't imagine anyone would be put off dating a buyer of my property. Its how the inside looks in terms of taste and cleanliness that counts!

Sounds like your friend is insecure and perhaps a little judgemental herself. I mean, if she is willing to sever her dating life because of where she lives, then perhaps she would judge a man if he were in the same position.

If a man judged me by where I lived, he would be history. It shouldn't matter if it's the most exclusive part of town or the worst, I am still the same person.

I live in a apartment building that some would call not so great looking.
But I decided to make the most of it.
I painted my walls, new furniture, did a total make-over in my apt. I do have to say everyone who comes into my apt likes it. Home is where you make it,
My boyfriend lives in a better apt complex than me, but I do have to say mine on the inside looks newer than his does.
I hope your friend has a differnt attitudes because im sure lots of men wouldnt hold where she lives against her..
