    Would you date somebody who worked as a janitor/custodian/cleaner?

    This is just a general question that I'm asking out of curiosity - I'd love to hear everyone's opinions on this.

    Would you get into a long-term, serious relationship with somebody who worked as a janitor/custodian for a living?

    If you wouldn't - why not?

    yes I would. There are people who work custodial at companies for years and they have stable jobs and make good money. Also, not everyone who is a custodian mops floors. I know a couple people where grounds maintenance is part of their duties or actual do a lot of electrical repair, too. i know one guy who does it because he is off early to be with his kids after they get home from school and works at the school, too. I rather be with someone who is a hard worker than someone someone who is waiting to find himself. I know someone who is a custodian and loves the job because work stays at work and when he is off he is writing a book.

    If the perfect guy for me happened to have a custodial job - that would be fine. means he could find a job wnywhere if we transferred with my job

    Being a janitor/custodian is not a deal breaker for me. I think I'd flinch more if I heard he worked in an office. lol. (which btw, wouldn't be a deal breaker either, but just saying).

    As long as we were intellectually similar, sure!

    I don't really have an issue with how much someone makes. I'm striving to support myself. Any money my partner makes is a bonus and I don't need him to make a lot. I've dated rich men as well as poor ones. Don't care.

    I don't care what his line of work is as long as it's an honest job, and he's ambitious and hard-working. I'd rather date a good, hard-working janitor than a self-centered, greedy banker (not to stereotype or anything).

    That really depends on your social/financial status in life, if you are holding some sort of position which requires any type of degree like a police officer, school teacher, accountant, etc. you might want to set your sights higher. However if you aren't making any real money or making less then your significant other, you are a student or are working as a cashier, inventory, delivery, etc. then beggars can't be choosers.

    If the person's hot then why wouldn't you wanna date them. I can imagine a hot janitor. Look at Matt Damon from the movie Good Will Hunting, wasn't he a janitor? I don't think any woman would've turned him down and he was very smart too. So yeah you fall in love with the person, not the job.

    Thinking about the other side though, if you have twins, one is a janitor, the other is a doctor, you may be more attracted to the doctor twin. So if you wanna be on the more attractive side, you may wanna pick an attractive job.

    Since you started this thread, I'm curious as to what your opinion is.

    When I was finished with my military tour, in 1987, I moved to an area where a big building boom was going on, Manchester NH. The unemployment rate was 3% - anyone wanting a job, could get one. I worked construction that year, and made alot of money, until the winter lay offs, where I worked in a factory until I could go back to construction. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and during that year I became engaged to the girl I was dating out there. I applied at a local school district as a custodian, just so I had year round work. Figured it was a stop gap - they hired me because I was young (early 20s) and strong, and most of the custodial staff were mid 50's and above.

    To sum this up, I was offered a head custodian job in NY State, and moved here and took over an elementary school, that was in 1991. Since starting here, I have earned my degree in child social work, started a youth program in the community that teaches children (mostly pre teens) life skills using community service projects as the means to that end. I have the complete trust of parents, teaching staff, administrators, and the people who work under me. After 23 years in this same position, I make a very good salary, have a nice retirement with the state, I have job security, I own a nice home, a large piece of property, can afford new vehicles, and I have alot of pride in my position there, and in the community.

    The moral of the story, somebody who doesn't know me, who might be judgmental, might say, "he's only a janitor" - I say that because I have heard it said before, and I chuckle. Reminds me of when I worked construction, building car dealerships, and the owner of the dealerships became angry with his sales people because a man dressed like a farmer right out of the fields, showed up wanting to look at a lincoln continental. The salesperson laughed and told him he would show him a car that was probably more in his price range. The man became angry, and left...went to a competitor and bought a car, cash. He was a wealthy man....needless to say, the sales people were ordered to greet anyone driving into the dealerships before they even got out of the car. So when any of us showed up at the job sites (which were car dealerships) the sales people would greet us before we could get out of the vehicles. Sometimes we'd keep driving and they'd chase us.

    Old saying, "Judge not, lest ye be judged."
