I recently trained in a trade, having previously been a 5th grade school teacher. I decided to learn a trade because I enjoyed working manually and having a project - and the idea of having a real 'skill' appealed to me. However, so many female friends and relatives have commented on how I'll always be single now. Men don't want a 'girl like that'. I think that's meant to infer that working a trade is a negative thing. I get that it's unusual but I love it. Yes, I'm a little bit of a tomboy, I love hockey and baseball, but I also love books, documentaries, cooking and doing my hair and make-up and getting dressed up to go out. Is it really such a terrible turn off if a girl doesn't wear a skirt and heels to work?

I can't imagine that alone being a dealbreaker. I generally don't care what a girl's profession is as long as the girl is attractive, has a feminine face/body, is pleasant to be around and doesn't have a high partner count.
The only professions that really turn me off for a serious relationship are:stripper, escort, model, actress, massage therapist, liberal journalist, and possibly lawyer but Im on the fence about that.0

I doubt any serious man would have an issue with that.0
