I've always found myself attracted to men who work in the corporate world or wear a uniform of some kind... like cops. I think that's mainly because of how they must present themselves; clean cut, professional, and sharply dressed. To me there is a rare sight better than a man in a clean pressed shirt and tie or full uniform with shiny shoes.
Until this past year, I've always been rather unlucky in careers. I was a waitress and bartender for about 9 years before finally finding the job and position I currently hold, and in my corporate world, everything is run by men! Yet there are no men running around in suits and ties.
I've had a total of 3 promotions and 4 raises since starting my job a year ago in July, and they have treated me well. I now make 182% what I started off making. I was promoted to a high level in the company last December, and I really took hold of the reigns to steer the crew in the direction they needed to be (and I wanted them to be) heading in.
The man I've found myself attraced to is my equal now. It's a wonderful feeling, knowing that I'm self-sustaining and independant finally. I do not need a man in my life to take care of me anymore. I've always been "taken care of" by others, and it's a good feeling to be successful finally. Living alone is lonely at times, but for a full year now I've managed to survive on my own. I could finally be more selective about the men I chose to date, not just take what was available to me at the time and force myself to be happy about it.
We are equals. We are a team. We are peas in a pod.
