Since us women are notorious of doing it, are you? How much money she makes, her friends etc...

It's not a matter of what degree she's achieved or what job she has. It's more about wanting to learn or improve or volunteer or something. It's about not being lazy and not being afraid of responsibility.
There is a "type" that drives me nuts: she is rough around the edges or prides herself on acting like a guy, who might be attractive but nevertheless projects a ridden-hard-and-put-away-wet look. A lot of women like this smoke and wrinkle their nose if you use vocabulary they are unfamiliar with. They love to pick apart celebrities. This kind of woman is a huge turn-off.
But even if she only graduated high school and works a dead end job, it can be OK. Is she in night school? Is she in a training program at work to advance? Is her car or apartment clean? Does she follow a bit of the news of the day that isn't on E! ? If I offered to take her on a trip someplace she's never been, would she read up on it? Is she passionate about *anything* that takes a bit of brainpower? Does she have a desire to educate me or get me excited about whatever that might be?
These are the cues to status/class that are meaningful to me.0
