Does having a car really make you the better option to date?

A female United States age 22-25, *eJah writes:

Does having something that the next person doesn’t make you the better option to date? Will it stop your boyfriend from losing interest?

My friend was messaged a screenshot/picture by her ex boyfriend’s new girlfriend that showed a status her exes new girl made saying “I need to get my car soon” and under the screenshot his girl wrote “You’ll never have to worry about him wanting to come back ever again because I’ll have a car soon.” Her ex was still flirting with her, my friend had to eventually block him because he was doing it constantly. When he noticed she had him blocked he made a fake facebook page and continued to do so and I’m guessing his new girlfriend saw it. She seems to be mad at my friend instead of being mad at him. My friend doesn’t have a car because she’s too nervous to drive. She doesn’t depend on people much though she has her own money for Uber’s and lyfts and we live in Chicago with much transportation. My thing is, does having a car really make you the better option to date just because you have a car and the other person doesn’t? She seems to think that having a car will solve her problems and magically make him a better person to date.

aunt honesty agony auntYour friend has done the right thing blocking him. As for the comment the girlfriend made about the car well it was very immature and it shows she feels threatened. Off course it doesn't matter if someone has a car or not.

Dionee' agony auntI say; NO, having a car doesn't make you better. It doesn't better your chances (as a female at least) and it doesn't make you fart perfume (for lack of a better analogy lol).

If this new chick thinks that that's what it will take to keep this man then she's really immature and if it works on him, then he's just as immature and douchy as she is.

He seems like and idiot and so does his new chick. They deserve each other. Your friend done the right thing by blocking him initially. She should keep it that way. He isn't worth it.

A male reader, anonymous, writes (15 April 2018):

As a guy I would say it is totally irrelevent to us what a girl has or has not as long as we like her but definitly it is a fact that it helps immensly a guy's chances to win dates with girls if he has a car. Actually it helps further if he has a yacht and still further if he is a famus celebrity or a movie director or producer. In fact the possibility of dating beautiful women is directly proportional to the size of a guys wallet. The bigger the wallet the better the chances. However in my opinion this relationship does not apply to females. So back to the subject I think your friend's ex bf is playing a cruel game with her. She should block him.

Honeypie agony auntNo having a car doesn't matter SO much that a person would dump ONE person for one with a car.

Now if you live out in the boondocks with little to no transport it's DEFINITELY nice to have.

Your friend need to CUT this guy totally out of her life, as he is a piece of scum who is playing these two girls against each other for HIS entertainment. How pathetic is that?

Honestly? When I lived in a bigger city having a car was more of a "burden" then a good thing. Because I rode my bike to work, only took the car when it rained but you still have to pay all the costs of having a car where you really could just save that money for other things.

Your friend's ex's new GF is insecure. Because she is dating a piece of shit man whom she is so desperate to keep that she is acting like a fool. Your friend... needs to realize that this guy need to be cut out like cancer.

Let the new GF have him, he ain't work a pot to piss in.
