Women don't want a real man that has to get his hands dirty. It is funny how women really want a manly man, rough and rugged, and tough, but he can't be dirty or smelly from his job either.
I am a licensed heavy diesel tech. I make $40 an hour. I have never even needed a resume or interview to get a job because my trade is in such high demand. Yet, when I was younger, the girls thought I was a knuckle dragging neanderthal grease monkey and would never give me the time of day. I never dressed as a mechanic at the bars, I always wore nice clothes and my hands clean. But once I mentioned I was a diesel tech, they lost all interest. Over and over. It took me a long time before I learnt to simply not talk about what I did for a living.
