Blue collar guys dating
I did not/ do not have any other frame of reference of settling for anything less because that was never an option.Returning to campus for my homecoming and seeing a lot the alumni from my Alma Mater who had brought their dreams to fruition motivated me.And reminded me that there is no reason to settle and the kind of men I desire is out there.Also, if you are single in LA you know the men out here are a different bread.They do not approach women and court them like most men in other parts of the country.The exception is usually men who are not from here, or if they are from here they spent time away and return with some damn sense. I believe there are good men out there and I never want to come off like a “man hater.” I can only speak form my own experiences.But they have a certain mentality that I can relate to and the amount of money the make or do not make is irrelevant.Their day to day work load and/or responsibilities are relatable.
Between my travel schedule and him not having control of his schedule the relationship… And let me be clear, he didn’t treat me like a queen or put me on a pedestal. Maybe I haven’t been open and have cheated myself out of a great man. At the end of the day, I knew we weren’t compatible.If you are successful, single and in your 30’s, you get used to “kind hearted” people making “suggestions” on what you should tweak, try, or compromise on when it comes to dating. Seriously, at this stage of the game, I’m a marriage in, a divorce out, and I really think I know what I need and what I can and can’t compromise on. I still do, but I have learned how to hide my annoyance and just smile and nod my head.Now, before I get cussed out for being a bourgeois, high falutin biatch, let me explain what I mean by Blue Collar.
I am not referring to the amount of money a man makes or how many degrees he has or doesn’t have.
Is it because I am now in my 30’s they believe I should just give up and date a man who is not up to my standards?
