Dating someone with no college education
By the way, my son has been in OT for sensory integration disorder for over 2 years now--------- love occupational therapy!!! You are ambitious, have career aspirations and are determined to get where you want to go. I'm not trying to be harsh but it seems that he does not have the same outlook on life as you. Yes, he's going through a rough patch out of work in a down economy . I'm sure you love him and I'm sure he is a good guy.
Sure, we all would love to party our way through college, bum around and not work. But I really think when it comes to setting ourselves up for a happy forever after, we have to start at the best possible place.
Regardless of what your friend says, just because someone didn't get a college degree does not make him uneducated.
There are many ways to get an education, college being but one of them.
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.
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.
Just like the first time, it was full of smart, pretty, successful women in their thirties and forties and men of similar ages with manual labor jobs (and a few running their own manual labor businesses) but no men of equivalent professional or educational status except for one doctor.
When she dumps you for someone younger and better looking you’re not going to want her to have a law degree.
A girlfriend and I discussed this over the weekend while adding her profile to an online dating site and she said the guy she dates must be educated.
Sure, we all would love to party our way through college, bum around and not work. But I really think when it comes to setting ourselves up for a happy forever after, we have to start at the best possible place. Well, on the surface---------- I think two people can be compatible with one having higher education and the other not.
And I would not pursue this relationship any further as it seems you both are on separate paths in life. However, you don't really sound compatible with your boyfriend. Why would you tie your life to someone that is that way. but it is another thing in a long pattern that he has had.
