Types Of Men That Professional, Affluent College Educated Woman Should Avoid!

Types of Men That Professional, Affluent and College Educated Women Should Not Have Relationships With

More women are becoming educated at the college level and beyond. Compensatory with that type of education are professional careers which afford a very high standard of living. Affluent, professional, and highly educated women have been exposed to cultural and intellectual avenues that non-college educated, and non-professional women have not been. The average college educated woman comes from a socioeconomic background which is middle class and/or above. She aspires to a high standard of living and appreciates the better things of life. She also wants a relationship with a man who does the same.

Now you ask what type of men should affluent, professional college educated women should not have any type of relationship with. Yes, there are several types of men that affluent, professional college educated women should steer away from. There is the blue collar man who is often uncultured and crude. This man usually does not appreciate the finer things of life and usually has a chauvinistic attitude towards women. The blue collar man is very macho in the most primitive sense and feels threatened by a highly intellectual woman. This man neither travels nor participates in cultural and intellectual activities. He is usually content to spend his off hours either at the bar, going to baseball games, and sitting in front of the couch watching television.

Secondly, there is the man who does not have a college education. Avoid this person like the plague. He usually has a menial, low paying job and has only a rudimentary knowledge of life. This man is clearly not intellectual and is totally incapable of holding an intelligent conversation. Like his blue collar cousin, he usually does not read complex materials outside magazines and everyday newspapers such as THE DAILY NEWS. Books are not in his purview and/or lifestyle. This man like his blue collar cousin scorns self-improvement and continuing education. He is content to live a meager existence, living from hand to mouth. The non-college educated man clearly does not participate in cultural activities because this is foreign to him and is content being a couch potato, watching endless hours of television.

Thirdly, there is the man who comes from a lower socioeconomic background. Although there are some men from lower socioeconomic backgrounds who do become educated and affluent, these are in the minority. Most men who come from lower socioeconomic backgrounds remain that way. They believe in ekeing out a living and not thriving and growing. Men from lower socioeconomic backgrounds are often passive-aggressive, fatalistic, and do not believe in success.

They believe that success is beyond them and that it belongs to someone else, not them. Men from lower socioeconomic backgrounds usually have an adverse reaction to affluence and wealth. They believe that rich and successful people are unethical and greedy. The average man from a lower socioeconomic background believes in hand outs and bail outs. He usually has a high school education or less because he is adverse to education believing it is irrelevant to his economic life.

Next, is the unambitious man. This man can come from any socioeconomic and educational background. This is the type of man who is content with his job and/or career as it stands. He does not believe in asserting himself and putting in the extra hours to obtain a promotion. This man is often adverse to hard work and views work as a chore, not a challenge. This man believes in working enough to pay his bills and not to get terminated. He views work as a means to an end.

The second part to the unambitious man is the man who refuses to work. He usually comes from a very affluent background. His parents usually support him or provided him with financial security so that he does not have to work. He has leisure time at his disposal. He usually disdain people who work, seeing them as dull and unimaginative. This man would rather spend his time in leisurely pursuits than to use his potential to contribute to society. This man is often immature and does not assume responsibility in any relationship but would rather have someone else take care of him and his needs.

Last but not least is the man who lives with his parents. Ladies, steer clear of this type of man. He is usually a loser who is risk-averse and is afraid to take manly responsibilities and live on his own. Usually his parents take care of his financial needs as he does not have to pay rent in addition to his parents performing chores that he should perform himself. This man usually have a low paying menial level job as he does not see the need to having any type of substantial job because he is living with his parents. Please note: the average man who lives with his parents is a BOY, not a man. He is content to live in adolescence and not to assume adult responsibilities such as a moderately well paying job and an apartment. Studies furthermore show that men who live with their parents do not achieve anything of significance, especially in the career arena.

Now you have it, women who are affluent, professional, and college educated seek men who are equally affluent, ambitious, and aspire to the better things of life. Tertiary education opens one's horizons and outlooks in life regarding cultural and intellectual outlooks. People with college education and beyond are more mature, cultured, progressive, and affluent than people without college education. Women with college educations should not have to settle for crumbs, but reach for the stars!

      My initial thought after reading this was that it's a satire. More women hold college degrees with than men. Perhaps the author is aware of that? If you read the article with that in mind, then it's less offensive, mildly amusing, and in the best of light, pushes you to think about the fact that, hey, every person you will ever date is crazy/bruised/flawed in their own way. Not to go all fortune cookie on y'all, but you may as well ditch the search for perfection and find the crazy/bruised/flawed that you also happen to be crazy about, no?

      how pretentious are you? I have never read such ignorance before. I am a highly educated, successful woman married to a blue collar plumber, who has an associates degree. He has traveled and experienced more than I have. He is kind, generous, loving, and supportive. I find many of my highly successful male colleagues egocentric, male chauvinistic , and controlling. you can have them. To generalize is ignorant.

      To RNDletters: YOU are the one who probably never attended college. I have, thank you. If you have been around(it is woefully apparent that you have not), there is a marked difference between highly educated, successful men and those who are not. If you have been around men who were not college educated, they are woefully deficit in the intellectual arena. The average man who is a high school graduate and/or from a blue collar background does not read much and are not fund of intellectual activities. They deride books and intellectual activities as an utter waste of time and energy. They are more attuned into more mundane concerns. Anything highly cultural and intellectual is totally out of the purview of the average men who is a high school graduate and/or comes from a blue collar background.

      If you read(hint the word r-e-a-d) some books about blue collar life and men who are high school graduates. Such cultures do not place a premium importance on academic achievement and upward mobility. Men of such calabre believe in the immediate pleasures of life. They believe that education should be rudimentary at best and something to get a passable job. The average college educated woman will never go with men of such character and would actually deride them because they are, well, beneath them. If you are aware( it seems that you are not), men who are cultured and intelligent have college educations and/or more. College educated women want men who they can talk to and share commonalities with and men with high school educations and blue collar backgrounds just do not measure up! Forget about talking to a college educated woman, if you are totally unambitious and/or a poor man who wishes to remain that way. She will NEVER consider you at all!

      The author of this article has clearly never been to college! This made me laugh! And the comments were even more amusing then the article themselves. IF you want someone who's cultured and intelligent then their educational level will not tell you anything.

      Thanks for the laughs!

      While this information is very enlightening and for the most part correct (I will add a sidenote in that I believe there are exceptions to every rule), you did not suggest where we might find men who we DO want to meet.

      I know this was not the focus of the hub, but please do us a service and address the other side of the coin? I believe you could do a wonderfully thorough job.

      To John Smith: More and more men are white collared professionals. Blue collar men are an endangered species and are derided by the rest of society. College educated men are more affluent and more cultured and have guarantees of a professional and ever-expanding job market than blue collar men who have to take the few crumby jobs that are left over.

      Mr. Smith, you say that you are educated. I am so sorry, you are not educated unless you possess a college and/or postgraduate education. A high school educated person in my estimate is considered to be uneducated. So sir, you are so far from educated to say the least.

      No intelligent college educated woman wants a blue collar man. A blue collar man has nothing in common with an affluent college educated woman. College educated women are sophisticated, intellectual women who were exposed to various avenues of learning and thinking through the college experience. Blue collar men usually finished high school and have a narrow prospectus on life. Blue collar men are not well-spoken nor intelligent. The average blue collar male's average pasttime is watching wrestling and/or other mundane shows on television.

      What? This blue collar description decribes MOST men ON EARTH!!!!!

      I was a 'blue collar' but I spoke and thought very well. I didn't need an 'accredited' institution supported by a state to say I'm 'educated'.

      I'm guessing many great leaders in history that did not get a degree from MIT are 'blue collar' idiots.

      Thank you for sharing. I have read what you have stated before, but never have taken this to are so correct with everything you wrote. I hope other women take your advice or they will find out the hard way that this is a truth.
