Since the other thread got deleted, for whatever reason I don't know why, I just thought I posted it again,without the joking title.

I am a bit of both. I like having the backyard space of a rural house... as well as the isolation...

But I wouldn't mind driving 30 minutes to town to go to work...

...which is why I prefer medium size cities like Portland, ME.

Don't care, just so long as we are compatible.

As someone who grew up rurally, on a farm, was educated and worked for many years in small towns, and has also lived a very quintessentially urban life in large cities, I'm a bit of a chameleon. I have generally always worked "collarless" jobs...not blue collar, not corporate. I would say that I've been most comfortable in my life with men who are NOT intensely corporate. There is an undercurrent/attitude that I can't tolerate that, in my experience, has come with the shirt-and-tie cube farm drone set. The guys I've enjoyed the most work less conventional jobs that they are no less serious about. Academics, those in creative fields, those in helping professions (social work, teaching, nursing, veterinary, community outreach, etc.) all tend to be more what I'm drawn to. I tend to respect guys who are more about what good their work is doing than what promotion they're getting.

But regardless of their roots, they need to be down to earth, and intellectually motivated. I don't want a ladder-climby snob, and I don't want a redneck. Makes sense, as I'm neither, myself.

Country boy all the way Wouldn't care if he was blue collar or white collar, but wouldn't want the Wall Street or big corporate CEO type.

They can be jerks in every catagory.

The key is finding a good guy in any of them.
