Men I have spoken with ask - "What do you do for a living"

Members Only
I find it so interesting that on this sight one of the first questions I seemed to be asked by a man is what I do for a living. Personally I am caught off by that question. This sight is for professional individuals, if I paid the premium - for which I had - then trust me I can hold my own.
So for the women on here that are real - do you feel the same? Have you had the same questions asked?
For the men, can you give a little insight as to why that seems to be one of the first questions in an initial conservation? (fake women won't tell you the truth anyway - fake men will ask - but this question has been asked by real men also)

Interesting observation ... Thank you, appreciated.
Tuesday's exercise was 1000 words on supply chain management, 500 words on funding ... etc etc .... I can write crap like the best of them!

Alas no, my MysteryQ … English was my absolute weakest subject at school and held me back at University. It was only when I HAD to write reams of bid documents for work that my skills honed to the point where I am ... OK I think!
It shows that with a little application, one can improve on ones' weaknesses to the point where they are moderately acceptable!

Quoting michael2761:

i ask it because i want to avoid gold diggers and looking to understand are you here for support financially or are you able to support yourself and not be my new burden. i have no issue sharing my wealth but i have great issues with broke adults

Michael I hear you.. with regard to people being a burden or whatever. But I want you to look beyond the box. There are situations especially in recent years wherein one had finances. Were financially situated or due to this layoff, this natural disaster, and now COVID, they saw their savings erase. I try to not be too judgmental.. I try to hear what they have to say. As a woman who has dated poor as a church mouse to millionaires... I can tell you that the poor church mouses had a lot more character and a lot more integrity. Hard to live off of love, but they sure were men of candor. I kicked the millionaires out of my bed for them, so to speak. Nothing in life is an absolute. .... I know of someone very close to me. Had everything paid for until a car wreck and the house burning followed by natural disasters. With little to no family, their savings were erased. So I ask you, would you consider that person a "burden" because they are now a broke adult? Keeping in mind the same education, same moral codes - nothing else changed, but life. You would eliminate them due to circumstances beyond their control? .... I want to remind you before you answer of the old saying "there but by the grace of God go I"......

Quoting Onemoretime60:

I will always ask ... assuming it is not obvious from their profile.
A whole number of reasons: I am interested in what people do / what makes them tick, it's good conversation (if it's not and it's a problem - alarm bells - as if you work you should be proud of what you do, whatever it is ... I am!) and - yup - I don't particularly want to enter into a relationship with someone who needs to work - but doesn't. The only proviso is sometimes people need to but can't ... that's obviously the exception that proves the rule. We all know friends that - because of one reason or another - are genuine people but life's cards at that point are just ... shit. That's different.
And yes, I get asked it for exactly the same reason - a woman wants to know that their potential date has some 'go' and isn't an unemployed draw. I totally get that. Works both ways.

I like your responses all of them... are you a writer?

yes I have been asked that question quite a few times.. maybe they are looking for ideas.. since they don't have any money :)

I don't think there is anything wrong with knowing what a person does. I want to know what a person does, it is part of their life. I proudly show what I do for one of my jobs in my name.

Well, I'm not concerned about your profession, but I would live to know "what do you do" for fun or a breath of fresh air!

Now you know how men feel.
So how does it feel to be assessed like that?
