First things first... this is not a question.
It's a statement with a question mark outta place.
"A guy rejected me because of my low status job but said he'd give me a chance if I'm willing to change it...?"
Next, NOBODY dates an occupation. They date people.
People keep people company. Not Jobs, Money, Smarts, Zodiac Signs or Ages.
YOU will never kiss any of these. You will people.
If a person judges you before they know you... they are NOT worth your while. If a person, doesn't like you for some detail outside of being YOU. Keep in mind that even they WILL NOT be what they are all their life.
People Age, Change and some even Mature.
When someone dismisses you for whatever reason,
there is someone else HAPPY, you are available again.
Self Respect is YOU “Being the way you are” .
Respect is OTHERS “Accepting you the way you are”.
If this is Uncomfortable to you… YOU ARE A PUPPET.
