However

Keep in mind that the OP might save money living at home and, if he invests it correctly, he might be much better positioned when the crisis hits. I'm sure plenty of girls will be attracted to a guy who can provide for them in a disaster scenario. The problem w/ that, of course, is that you won't really know if a girl legitimately likes you.

To the OP:
I'm pretty much in the same boat, by the way. I think I decided that it's a better idea (for me at least) to try to find someone beforehand rather than after. But I'm going to be conservative about it and not just "pick any girl". I can't imagine how bad being married to a girl you no longer get along with would be.
