Can I turn this around a little bit?

I have this issue of what to tell people. First of all I'm very educated however I've chose a different route to make more money. It just seems as if people look down on ya.. I do have my Early Childhood Education Diploma as well as Child and Youth Worker Diploma, but I'm currently working in a factory (yes a monkey on a line) Waste of education, no not really, I have stuff to fall back on.. I'd rather be able to pay my bills, than say yeah I'm a teacher and be in debt.. call me crazy.

Does a job really matter? As long as you don't have to support that person, don't rule them out. I've dated a laywer before and he always had an issue with me working in a factory.. I guess to each their own right? Everyone has preferences I guess we all loose out.

Is what I mean,,,,some have a problem with what avenue we have chossen,,but I wondered why?,,and for what reasons

Sometimes we have to do what we need to do to pay the bills


I stated my reasons and why

everyone is different,,

such as some may not want to date a nurse,,because they may be afraid of needles,,or hell if the chick or guy,,wants to give them an ennima,,,,,who knows,,everyone has fears

Just for myself I woudl be more leery of salespeople and actors,,for reasons as stated before

I would never define who a person is by the job that they do. Sure, they may be exceptions to the rule. I doubt a good catholic would date an abortion doctor. But, if the person is doing an honest days work for an honest days wage, then I am happy.

I am in the exact same boat. I have a BA in English and had nothing pan out with it - so I work in a factory too.

Liberal Arts degree for the lose.

But I'm kind of glad things turned out this way ... for reasons that would take too long to explain here.

i can't say that any profession is a turn off. there are certain jobs i wouldn't like my partner to do (male stripper, hitman, etc), but it wouldn't be a deal breaker. if a person is happy in the profession they choose, then they are most likely happy with themselves.

Interesting, lmao, that you don't list your occupation in your profile.

Now I guess I'm biased but what do you have against nurses? - so if you got sick and went into the hospital you would refuse to let them care for you? And what's wrong with factory workers - most things we buy were made in factories. And you don't like doctors or dentists - who do you go to when you're sick or have dental problems? I'd be curious to know why you are turned off by people in these professions.

by the way, what are "stripers"? Are they the guys that paint the lines on the highway? :-)

I just asked a question and and wondered if it was concern to some people,,,
is obvious it is to some

I never stated I had anything against nurses,,myself,,or a factory worker,,or anything of a such. Just sales and actors,,,,are trained to be slick as is,,,and where is the line from life and work for them? AS for anyone????????

Stripers,,well could be anything your heart desires

as a bum on the street,,they could be worth millions,,,and YES they do exist,,,do not kid yourself,,has been proven many times over!!!!!!!

professions sometimes state a person,,,and even someties thier own personal level,

JUST wondered if that was a HUGE conern for some,,,,,SHOOT ME!!!!


please forgive typos,,,,,omg,,,because I do not feel the need to be a perfectionist either,,(I need to cut my nails as well,,haha)

I'm kind of surprised to see so many turned off by salespeople. A good salesperson usually has a great personality, and genuinely likes people. Some of my favorite people are in sales.

When someone asks me what I do for a living I tell them I sell slurpees, followed up by "want to date"... they either laugh or run... people are so stupid, it is in my profile, why not spend the time and read it... if they choose to laugh at that comment, then thats great... if they run away even better, one less matrialistic f*ck to deal with...

If someone likes there job I am never going to knock them for it... they just have to be motivated, have goals and aspirations...

I work a customer service job that requires me to make sales. I'm not an actor, I simply try to use charm to intise people to buy our product (only because I am pressured to). I work this job because i'm a student and I need something flexible that will also give me enough hours to pay my bills.
The idea that someone would avoid me because of my job is ridiculous. At least I work hard and am responsible which is far better than being lazy and unemployed.
I find this somewhat hypocritcal as you are on a dating site trying to sell yourself. You are pointing out your good qualities in hopes that someone will want you, well that's all I do at work with the products we sell. It doesn't make me any less genuine in my personal life, I don't lie to people.

Short of something illegal, I can't believe people would be shallow enough to exclude someone on the basis of their occupation.

And what would be so wrong with a Mortician? Think of the pluses! They'd always be wanting to be doing your hair, makeup, nails, clothing, heck it would be like having your own butler or buterlet!
