It is fact that a successful blue collar worker is seen as lower status than a lowly white collar worker.
I knew of a guy who dropped out of university but started his own business and built up a rental portfolio (he bought several houses on rent ) but girls would decline him because he did not have a degree.
I think society needs a serious re-think actually regarding university.
It gives someone undeserved status boost without actually adding any value. It also breeds a sense of entitlement.
The real truth regarding women entering university was not about gaining an education but to have access to high value men.
However what has happened is that whilst the number of women in universities has grown is that more women have higher expectations of the type of men they think they deserve.
My mum used to tell me that perhaps it is better for a guy to find a girl that is not particularly educated (left school at 16 or 18) and worked in a bank.
Of course. Our friend Sat seems to be suggesting the majority of women are chomping at the bit to marry under their pay bracket, and that's so untrue.
Even in the lower echelons of our white-collar educated demographic, a female business & marketing graduate earning £26,000 would turn her nose up at a guy who's gone to trade school and bringing in £25,000 doing carpentry or similar work. It's not just the money, which in the example I've given is just a grand, but the fact that she thinks, "I've gone to university; he's "just" a manual worker without a degree."
However, the same guy grafts hard and starts his own business. After a few years, he's clearing £50,000+ while office girl has gained a stone or two (😅) but hasn't managed to break through the £30,000 barrier. Now she thinks, "That guy was actually okay." He could've become a total scumbag during that time, lmao, but that £25,000+ leap in earnings has suddenly made him more desirable.
In reality that's how the world spins on its axis. The Hollywood-ised fantasy being promoted by Sat is partially true but it skips and ignores a few essential and unavoidable truths that some ladies would rather not have illuminated about their fellow woman.
