I wouldn't have anything in common with a guy who picks strawberries. If you think that is shallow...so be it, but we all look for someone to complement who we are...I want to go back to school, and study statistics, what would I be discussing with someone who picked strawberries all day long?
How would the situation the economy is in and understand what might have gone wrong even be a subject of conversation?
I am not saying that the man who picks strawberries is less of a man or his job is not honorable...but would he be someone I can build a life with? NO.
FYI, Most people who are picking strawberries are hoping to find other jobs and progress and better themselves and provide their kids better opportunities then they had.
If I met and married a man who picks strawberries and likes it and doesn't want to ever do anything else in his life...would the children I have with him be well provided for? Would we be able to give them everything they need or they want? Could we send them to college? Would we have medical insurance if they get sick?
If he cannot with his job take care of or contribute to raising his family that means that I have to find a job that pays enough to do all these things for my children. Will my man feel like a man? Will he feel like the head of the household if his contribution to the family is minimal and when he alone could not provide for his children?
Since you first hit us over the head and dragged us out of the cave...it has been genetically inscribed in us to look for men who can be strong providers and good fathers to our young. You looked at our childbearing hips we looked at your muscular bodies for the ability to bring home the kill. Those jobs have been translated and evolved, but the genetic inscription is the same.
Today you are still looking at our hips but not to bear your young and you no longer have to go out and kill for the food we need...you now have nice paying jobs to PAY for the food we need.
It is sad that women are now looking for the man who can buy them mansions and furs, but that has also been an evolution that took both of us to help create.
When the first man left his wife of 20+ years who took care of him and the household and the kids...and married a younger woman....you helped created the monsters who are after your wallets today. You were old, and needed something to entice the young women, so you showered them with gifts...and so the new "moral" code began.
Congratulations! Now stop complaining about it.
Either we're after your money or we're competing with you and making more than you. Make up your minds as to what you want already because I am tired of the misogynistic and confusing bullshit!
You think we're emotional and complicated? Maybe with our feminist movement we helped create the whinny little girls most men have become. You pluck your eyebrows and complain that the woman at work has bigger balls then you!
Either grow a pair and take back the jobs of being providers or shut the fuck up and take your viagra while you shower some young vapid thing with diamonds in a hopeless attempt to hold on to your youth.
