Dating a blue collar guy
I said I would be unlikely to go again because I have nothing in common to talk about with the men that I have met at these events.
He proceeded to give me a lecture as to why I shouldn’t automatically dismiss dating the two guys who were responsible for service washes in the launderette as they may be perfectly nice people and that career women in their thirties get what they deserve if they don’t.
Robin Coates, 45, of Mobile, Alabama, found starting a relationship with her boyfriend, Sam, a 39-year-old who installs floors, to be tricky.
It is not the first time that I have come across the attitude that career women deserve to be alone if they don’t want to date men without any education, or men a generation older, or the obese. Alas, men don’t care if you’re taller, richer, smarter, or funnier. Which is why men can date ANYONE — regardless of education, income, and height – while many women can only date 1 in 1000 men who are 6 feet tall, with a masters degree and a 0,000 income.
I am just wondering how many men really think like this. So are some men unrealistic in thinking that they deserve a chance with you? Are they also correct in pointing out that they are open to a lot more women than you are open to men, and this may hinder your ability to find lasting love? To your original question, no one is saying (apart from the jilted men) that you deserve to be alone.
Why he was there, I do not know, as he made it clear that he was not really looking to date anyone.
He did however buy me a drink in the bar afterwards and asked me what I thought of the event.
Coates works as a creative director and has a college degree.
