Should occupation matter?

If you have spent any time at all on the Atlanta dating scene, you’ve heard the following countless times: “What do you do?” which is usually followed by, “Where did you go to school?” Casual conversations can go from innocent flirting to archaeological dig for information in 60 seconds!

Everyone has their own angle to asking the career or occupation question. A lot of people believe that what a person does for a living says a lot about their character, personality….and bank account.

This is one of the reasons one of my guy friends tell women that he runs a non-profit when he meets them. This is only partly true because he actually runs the family business and runs the non-profit on the side. He says it is two-fold: It weeds out overly pretentious women who are only out to land wealthy men. It appeals to women who share similar interests and outlook.

I don’t know if this has worked well for him or not, but I do think about how much occupation matters – or does not matter – to a lot of us. Do you think it should?

What can you really tell about a person’s job, career, or career aspirations? When do you ask the person you are interested in dating or pursuing what they do for a living?

I think it can reveal if the person is actually just doing a job to meet living expenses or if it’s something they really enjoy doing. Are they following their dream? Have they given up on life and are living for the weekend, while they dread the week? Are they all about money?

So, yeah, the occupation can say a lot

“It weeds out overly pretentious women who are only out to land wealthy men.”\\

Actually, this is one of the more important things about finding out about other people. Women can marry up, but they certainly won’t/can’t marry down to a social inferior. Class and position is one of the most important things to find out about another person. After all, there is no such thing as a homely millionaire.

good morning. my first thought on reading the topic was that it shouldn’t matter but often times it does (and I own it – it does matter to me). this is part of the reason why I initially avoid this type of disclosure too soon when meeting people. it allows opportunity for bias.

It shouldn’t matter but it does. But for me it’s not because of money, it’s to assess whether that person and I have common interests/values/goals. I work in public service, and I’ve found that if someone has no drive except to make lots of money then we are not going to have a lot in common.

I don’t judge a man based on what he makes. However, I will say that I was married to someone who made less than me, and this was a BIG issue for him. Sometimes men think that we’re all after a rich guy, and they beat up on themselves for not making more, and then it becomes a problem. Just my experience…

And as for homely millionaires? Oh yeah, they exist!! I’m sorry, but a million dollars will not make me want to sleep with someone I find physically repulsive.

“A lot of people believe that what a person does for a living says a lot about their character, personality….and bank account.”

No matter if the person is the janitor or the C.E.O. , that’s only their job, not who they are.Many a person has been fooled thinking that some ones job/ career enhances their character.

People (usually women) often use one’s occupation as a metric for evaluating your dateability. Quite often there appears to be a correlation between occupation (read: earning potential) and level of interest, however, it’s not the end-all for everybody. And especially for those men who are perceived as aesthetically challenged, money can sometimes be a great equalizer in attracting women.

It apparently matters to lot of people what one does for a living and it’s a personal judgment issue. For some, that’s the primary metric; for others, it may matter but isn’t a top priority. Women like the security of a man with an occupation with a good earning potential (however that’s defined) to upgrade or enhance a certain standard of living.

Just like Wise’s friend who downplays what he does for a living to weed out what he calls “pretentious women” (golddiggers and financial parasites), you sometimes also have to look out for people who enhance their job/positions to appear to be more socially marketable (e.g., door greeter at WalMart = public relations director), at least until they’re busted.

If a woman likes what she does, money regardless, then she is gonna be the type that most likely worked to get where she is at.

On money- If she is unemployed and happy to mooch off people that is a big no no.
If she doesn’t particularly like what she is doing but makes great money, that means that she has some type of plan for her own future. That is great in my book.

Good morning All,

I have to say that yes occupation matters..because we(I) tend to judge people based on what they do and their education background. I know we all like to say ohh not me. But how many guys are really going to seriously(keyword here ) date..a known porn star or the highlight stripper at the local club. Not many..but hey it’s just a job right? I try my best in my dating life to be open minded but everyone has a limits.

Good morning,

Um, people do put a lot of stock into what the next persons occupation is. However, is that really effective in today’s economy when lots of folks are having to do things/jobs they wouldn’t normally do due to lay-offs, company restructurings etc?? I’m not working at a dream job but i’m still stiving for something better. Does that make me less of a candidate or incapable of having a thriving relationship with a guy?

Dude

January 19th, 2012
9:32 am

BTW, in my book, anyone who says that it doesn’t matter is just trying to look like they are deeper than they actually are, it matters. If someone says that their occupation is “street distribution of pharmaceuticals” then it makes a huge difference. A lot of jobs show you the type of character of the people that you talk to, also the length they have had that job matters a lot to me. If a person has never managed to hold on to a job for more than a few months, then there is something wrong and you need to run.

Leggs

Good Morning.

A person’s occupation doesn’t necessarily indicate who they are as a person, nor does it speak of their character. What it does say is they’re willing to work and because so many are working jobs they don’t want to do, it speaks of their character in that way. I can understand one downplaying their occupation more than I can see someone upgrading their position. I can’t present an embellished version of my true self…that’s deceitful and more than likely will blow up in my face. Why bother?

HiYas.

what a man does for a living matters to me only to the extent that if he is in a position of high power and visibilty, there’s a very good chance he’s too much of a workaholic for me. i like the balance of working to afford the imortant things in life (time with loved ones), as opposed to working to accumulate “stuff” and status.

If she doesn’t particularly like what she is doing but makes great money, that means that she has some type of plan for her own future.
careful, though. could also mean she values money over happiness. just a thought.

My first impression of the topic is that people would ask about vocation, avocations and hobbies just to come up with something about which to start a conversation. But, I’m sure that people, judgemental as they tend to be, would accept or disregard someone based on the response. Diva’s friend is a little bit disingenuous in his response, though, I’d expect that kind of subterfuge from a chick.

If someone asks me what I do for a living, I just tell them. Who cares what they think about it?

I’ve known women in my life who say they absolutely would not even date someone unless that person made more than $150k a year. That’s kind of limiting the dating pool a bit. Of course, I’ve seen these same women stay with someone who was slowly killing them psychologically, just because the guy had money. Guess that speaks more to the women than the men they’re dating, eh?

Morning All!

It does matter, though to what degree, it depends on the individuals involved. Be it sanitation work, managing a business, teaching, healing the sick, preaching, whatever, there is nothing wrong with finding out what an adult does for a living. All adults have to do something for a living unless they are a housewife/husband, being supported by someone else or inherited money.

Yes, the question has many elements to it. Are you able to support yourself? Can you contribute financially to building a life with me should we get together? Is what you do just to make ends meet or is it a career? Are you changing lives, saving lives, is this your life passion? Are you doing something I would find facinating? Are we in similiar fields, do we have that in common?

I’ve never been a member of the golddigger club. I was not raised that way, I’ve always been able to do for myself. If I got into a bind, I turned to my family, not a dude. So I’m not asking to get money from a guy.

If I’m not physically attracted to you, a billion dollars won’t help. Seriously, I’ve been in that situation before. He was very wealthy but I was repulsed.

The circles I grew up in and run in, where you went to school is a fair question. 9 times out of 10 everyone went somewhere, so it boils down to where. I want to know so I can know if you are a rival!

I’ve known a few pretentious folks of both genders that won’t date “blue collar” or below a certain pay scale. That’s their right, and as long as it works for them, it works. I’ve also known a lot of those same folk have had to get real.

“What can you really tell about a person’s job, career, or career aspirations? When do you ask the person you are interested in dating or pursuing what they do for a living?”

I always say it really does not matter what the woman does, but as long as she has some ambition to do something better if she is not happy. I usually ask casually. The key is to ask interesting questions about their field without probing. Especially if its a field you are not familiar with.

Me and my friend had the conversation of who would you go for A or B?

A: Woman who did not attend college but is making it with her own business of sort but has a great attitude and you two get along well and very attractive.

B. Woman who has every degree in the book, great career etc but she has no personality, negative/snooty attitude and you two don’t get along well but very attractive.

@BF ~ I understanding under Maritime Law he is to go down with the ship or at least wait until all passengers are accounted for before trying to save his own life. It’s a lot to ask for, but that’s the deal you signed up for…he turned out to be a poor helmsman.
