First off, I'm getting attacked by my bro here because I'm considering bartending. For some odd reason bartenders are consider "one step closer into becoming a stripper." I only want to bartend for the money, guys won't interest me especially since I already have boyfriend. I've only been with two guys at this age, and only slept with my current boyfriend. I've been approached by many men and I just don't get why I'm getting attacked by my bro, when he knows I'm not trashy. I'm in it for the money, but I won't ever go as low as stripping to make money. I'm still bartending?
Do you view bartenders as trashy?

I don't think bartending is a trashy job. In fact, I think it's a really cool job! Especially if you're good at it. My big brother worked as a bartender for many years, both in small pubs and in very fancy, high-class restaurants. By doing that, he got super good at knowing all the different types of alcohol, knowing which ones go well together, knowing how to create cool drinks (also non-alcoholic ones) etc. Still today, when he invites the family to his and his girlfriend's place, he sometimes asks us if we feel like having a cool drink before eating the starters. He also got to learn some of this awesome tricks like throwing this shaking cup over his shoulder and catching it again with his other hand. It's a lot of fun to watch him :-).
And I also wanted to say that I don't really find it fair if you're putting yourself over strippers (making sure to everyone that you're not "trashy like them"). Stripping is not a trashy job either. That's just something stuck-up, brainless macho guys say. Anyone who has some empathy knows that stripping is a bloody tough job (as can bartending be, depending on where you work). It demands a lot of you, physically and emotionally. Not everyone can get naked in front of 100 people. Stripping is probably harder work than most of those office jobs.0
