Would you rather date someone who works at McDonalds/Wendy's/Taco Bell, or a Dope Dealer?

Why does a fast food job mean someone is a deadbeat? They could be in school, or doing the best they can.

That's what I'm saying. I don't want to judge anyone trying to put food on the table, especially for kids. I would rather it be legal, sure, but I guess desperate times call for desperate measures for some. Glad my husband works hard at a good job. I'm one of the lucky ones.

Anyone with a fast food job is a deadbeat, and likely owe money, whether they are a scholar or "doin the best they can".
A single minimum-wage job won't even pay for all your bills, let alone have anything left to share.

Dope Dealers have jobs and take enormous risks just to make money and put food on a table, and water in the pipes, and a roof overhead, and still have enough to share with someone special!
They are trying harder than a guy that stands there taking no risks flipping hamburgers for a can of red bull an hour!
They are weak, scared wusses who will be forever poor!

I know tons of successful people who, at one time or another, worked in fast food. It's stereotyping and generalizing to say someone is a deadbeat because of their job. Actually, you're the one that looks like a jerk. I guess being a drug dealer is preferable in your world? You've gotta be a class act...

I was married to a local "kingpin" and I loved him with all my heart but once he started selling that stuff, I ran as fast as I could! That's been about 35 years ago.

So happy for you you don't have to choose. Hypothetically now, pretend you had to choose a fast food drone or a dealer, which would you date?

No I don't just date guys that get can get me pregnant however most girls end up pregnant. Me personally I have always dated guys with a job. I don't date guys without jobs...and dope dealers are not working class...they are lazy bums that don't really Wanna work to begin with...I also don't do drugs which is another reason dope dealers are not for me!

really.
Does "lots of people" live in their cars, or still with parents?
Can they even afford a car, insurance, or gas?
Are you just a self-loathing deadbeat yourself?
