No lady here has explained (and the question has been asked multiple times, across multiple threads!) what does career choice or education have to do with being an ideal mate. Is a brother ignorant if he does not have a degree? Is a brother not worthwhile without a high-status career? How do know that the "Average Joe" doesn't have the core values & personality traits to make you happy?
I don't think they can answer those questions without sounding like a golddigger. I think what the women here are missing from the man's posting is the women are unwilling to 'grow with a brother'. That's why you see so many Black men in the military ranks [...among the most underpaid citizens in our society] married to other races. Those brides are willing to go up the 'rough side of the mountain' with a brother. ...that says alot about their character.
