Very, very true.

Generally career oriented women do not date or enter relationships with non career oriented men who lack goals and a degree, which holds true for many young people this generation that is full of entitlement. Im sure it might have been different in the boomer and to some extent gen x dating scenes. But in todays time with so many women going to college and collecting so much debt how can a blue collar man help her out emotionally of being in debt besides sex. Generally I see mainly career oriented women go for career oriented men. Also i have to say this. Their are plenty of people who work white collar but work in lower management and low paying departments who treat their work as job and not a career. Women in this field or line of work will probably date a blue collar guy. Also their are blue collar and grey collar workers with degrees who make money or even forged a career and steady income out of what they do maybe in relationships with career oriented women. But at the end of the day it all boils down to money, especially when kids are involved.

Since when is a blue collar job not a career? I think what the op means is non-college educated?

Yes, I'm pretty sure OP's first language is not English, her grammatical mistakes reflect a second-language learner, not a native speaker.

ESL or not, doesn't deligitimize her question.
