Dating between social classes
A couple of days ago, while having drinks with some friends at Intercontinental hotel (which turned out to be a horrible experience, as the place is nothing like a 5 star hotel…or even a 4 star -the food is substandard and the roof of the bar leaks), a friend mentioned her recent experience on a date.She had gone out with a guy who, although was wealthy, obviously had a working-class background.Being a girl brought up in an upper-middle-class home, the first thing she noticed was the huge gap in their personalities.According to her, his mentality was very different from hers.
I’ve met several, but spending more than five minutes discussing Arsenal’s prospects makes me faint with boredom.I once dated a Marquis who was paralysed with horror when water began to pour through the ceiling of his dilapidated country house. He was the life and soul, could party until 4am, then get up early with no ill-effects. There was a whiff of danger about him that I found intoxicating.Also, you know that the only way both of you could travel together on a regular basis is if he pays for you, and that just seems wrong.Likewise, it could be the other way round and you are the girl from an upper-middle-class family, while your man has a working class background.
