If I were inclined to listen to conventional wisdom, I would be forced to conclude that I’m doing terribly in the mating market.
Apparently, women universally and immutably prefer to “marry up.” We want men who are more educated and earn more money, and this is the single most important trait we seek in a man. My boyfriend of four years—even though he is undeniably gorgeous, kind, and honest—falls much farther down the ladder of social prestige than me. I earned six figures my first year of practice and work in a firm whose letterhead is populated with Ivy League graduates.
That said, at the end of the day, we just value too different of things to be compatible long-term. I grew up in a white collar family and am really starting to take a fancy to "red neck" guys and their pick-up trucks.
It would probably help if you could describe what 'blue-collar' means to you.
I’ve always had an easy rapport with men and have never had any particular trouble attracting or holding their interest.My last bf was pretty much this, but it was difficult to communicate in terms of conversation.In recent months, some of the most stimulating and exiting, connecting conversations I've had have been with blue-collar guys.Send messages, share photos, make friends and date. It may be a passion, life style, deviation, or affliction.The Blue Collar Dating Community is your place to connect, share and grow with others in the Blue Collar Dating Community.

This perplexes many people, including my own mother.
