Would you date a stripper?
Would you date a pot dealer? What about someone who euthanizes animals for a living? Perhaps this brings up a bigger question:
Is it cool to NOT date someone based on their profession?
Lauren: I used to believe it was unfair to rule someone out just because of their job. Like me, many younger peeps have jobs that simply pay the bills. It isn’t their passion in life, just a means to an end. However, after I dated a stripper, my opinion on this has changed to...
If you aren’t cool with what someone does for a living, move on. You will always be bothered by it, or trying hard to make ‘em quit. Why waste your time or energy on that?
When I dated a stripper at first it was hot (just being real). Free lap dances and drinks...I was in heaven for a few months. But, as time went on, I realized how unhealthy it was to be around a strip club environment: drugs and drunks everywhere, unsafe, always up late. Also, I started to question my Boo’s choices, wondering, “What kind of person wants to work in this environment?” In other words, I was judging. Not good.
It was hot while it lasted, sure, but not something I’d ever do again.
William: You and your Boo mut have a similar moral belief system from the beginning. Otherwise, it won’t work out. Back in the day, when I was Lauren’s age, I would have definitely dated the stripper. However, as a man now in his 60s, that wouldn’t happen.
When you get older, you stop putting up with bullcrap. We just don't have time to waste.
Let’s say I walked over to a fly lookin' woman (who is a stripper) at a bar. Here’s how the conversation would go down:
