I am a 36-year-old sanitation worker and I recently met a young lady. The only reason I bring up my current occupation is that she has an ex who was quite successful in his career and she mentions it from time to time. I don’t think she does it to belittle me, but it does bother me a bit. And it doesn’t help that my route happens to run in front of her job so her co-workers see me. Can this relationship work?
Signed, Down in the dumps Dan
There’s no need to be down in the dumps Dan! I happen to know that sanitation workers are making very comfortable livings and many are making more than guys with BA’s. This woman seems to feed into the white and blue collar workers should stick to their own kind; type of social caste system manifesto.
Women like that tend to favor the good things in life, or at least the illusion of them. The perception that she’s found Mr. RIGHT 401K, who has the RIGHT career and social standing, means everything to some women.
It’s obvious that she still isn’t over her ex’s money! She may be over him but not over what he could do and provide for her. Money cannot buy love! It can, however, buy stuff and women like fancy stuff!
There comes a point when a woman gets bored with trying to Keep up with the Kardashians and wants something REAL! She wants and NEEDS a relationship!
The problem is will she allow her conscious mind to truly embrace your potential relationship?
The only way to find out is if you first embrace your current occupation! Once you feel comfortable within your job than you won’t worry about what she or her friends think of it or you!
