I met a cool guy in my creative writing class. I've known him for quite awhile now (about 3 months) and we enjoy each other's company and hang out one or two weekends a month.
However, he never says what his job is.
Not to get on the
but while I believe a person's job doesn't define them, since I'm starting to have romantic feelings about this guy, I am curious what he does for a living.
All I've been able to "piece together" is that he works at the largest hotel in our district, works at night, and the one time he called me during his lunch break (which was at 8 p.m.?) there was A LOT of music and noise in the background.
My girlfriends all think he's a janitor and embarassed that if I find out I'll look down on him and not want to hang (not true, though I admit, I'm not sure I'd want to date him, I'd probably just want to remain friends).
What do you all think? And if indeed he was a janitor, would you date him? I don't think Im better than him, but I want a guy that is going places and right now, he's not in school or trying to get a better job.
PS: If I just ask him the way my Mom has suggested and he says, "Yeah, I'm a janitor" what am I supposed to say next? "Oh okay, that must be fun?" "Do you like your job?" Anything I say afterward seems like it would be patronizing
