    Well Here in Tucson you make $20 an hour and that's not bad.

    I don't care what job the person has.As long as it doesn't involve me swallowing pellets of cocaine and they can support themselves

    Next to a UPS or FedEx guy, I'm sure he's an expert package handler... so, sure, why not?

    No Never... its not a matter of how much money a person makes in his profession - but its all about what he does and why he does it??? Now think about this - what is a mailman's job?? The most un-challenging, boring, repetitive kind of job... though I respect everyone for whatever they do and as little as they make but in a bf I would look for someone who has a passionate career or at least some sort of challenge in life. A mailman is not ambitious or driven and usually not too well educated... thats why he is a mailman. Its too easy to become a mailman - I would have nothing in common with him intellectually or otherwise...

    I would much rather date a legal assistant working for a judge.. or even a financial services secretary - they would probably make less than a mailman - but would be aiming for higher in life. Same reason I would never date a bus driver, conductor or even a flight attendant.

    Interesting. After several "classy" careers---floor trader on the stock exchange, high-level headhunter, commodities trader---I would actually enjoy a job like mailman or bus driver. I'm writing a book right now, and I don't want to come home mentally exhausted and too tired to sit down at the computer. Repetitive? Dull? Wonderful, I'll be fresh when I get home.[/quote]


    Sorry - I wouldn't consider any of those careers "classy"... they are boiler room aggressive jobs... I would probably date a mailman over a floor trader or stockbroker... do tell me whats classy about it?? You're sweating on the trading floor working 18 hours a day and screaming at everyone glued to the computer screens.. fighting over nickels and dimes... u call that a classy career?? LOL

    Now an auctioneer for Sotheby's ... thats classy...

    Please tell us why " Lots of people see at as a controversial profession"

    I HAVE dated a mailman before.
    At my gym I talked with this guy for a long time (flirted is more like it)
    but he had a BF at the time. When his BF left him, we had lunch once and then became a sort of FBs.... it went on for a while but never got beyond the sex stage,,, not sure why and then I met a BF and haven't seen him since,

    Travelstud,
    You're EXTREMELY shallow.
    Good luck finding someone who would put up with you, unless he's equally shallow...

    I would be worried he might get a paper cut. Every day while he is on his route I would be worried "is today the day he cuts himself on a letter?" I don't know if I would handle that stress.

    It's about being happy. People who are constantly trying to better themselves can be boring cause nothing is good enough for them. It seems like everything to them is about stigma and class or money. The funnest people to be around are often those who settle for mediocrity. That's just my opinion of course.



    Okay... would you date a carpenter who cut one of his fingers off so now he can no longer handle machinery properly so he is forced to work as a waiter?
