Would You Date a Blue-Collar (Manual) Worker?

would you date the help?

For women who work in an office, would you feel comfortable dating the men that work around the office, maintaining it? Like the janitorial staff, trash picker uppers, painters, movers, etc? If you would / do / did, how would you handle parading them to the rest of your co-workers?

I think that 'Men must be the breadwinner' mentality is flawed. I'm the breadwinner between my husband and myself and we've never had any 'I'm in charge because I make more' fights.

What you're doing is that you're assuming that would be the case without you even experiencing it.

I cant believe nairalanders are talking like this,

for christ's sake dont u know what the meaning

of LOVE is, TRUE LOVE for that matter.

irrespective of class, status,colour whateva

provided the two parties are matured enough to handle

their own personal issues.

very correct, but if the guy is not the breadwinner or not bring more bread..we have a problem

and very true also, it does not matter watever work a guy does ..itz the insecurity thing

but not to generalize, u see most of this things happening if the lady is higher.

the problem is not with the kind of job

the problem is with the troubles dat comes along..see, i have no time for a guy to be putting me down cos there is a "gap" in our working condition

or for a guy to be cheating on me...etc

most times, guys of those caliber get intimidated easily and are not easy to deal with...why put urself thru all dat all in the name dat "i dont want to discriminate" or " o well, itz just a start"

Yes but great things had humble beginnings. Look at Diddy who started by working for free getting coffee for people. Someone could have easily dismissed him and now look at where he is. If someone goes for him now he'd wonder if it was because of his money.

when u mention blue collar to anyone...they go "someone who is not well to do as any professional is"

omogenikky, i did just like u posted, I did not underestimate the powers of attraction or love.  But the only difference is, he's got a degree too. Came out of university with a good job with Lucent Technologies but got laid off during the peak of lay offs in america 2000-2001, so he did some manual jobs just like everyone else who didn't think about saving for emergencies.  I don't know if this implies but the sucker starting cheating on my Bottom while during that manual job.  I believed he got intimidated by me because I was making most of the money working in the office.

Note for everybody: A blue-collar worker is a working class employee who performs manual or technical labor, such as in a factory or in technical maintenance "trades," in contrast to a white-collar worker, who does non-manual work generally at a desk.
