    should that not be one of the first things you ask? When is it ok to have that talk?

    I think anytime is an appropriate time? If someone asked me what I do, I'd tell them.. Doesn't really bother me

    No asking for a date wasn't asked yet that's how new it is. Do you think you need to go on a date and have that talk there?

    Not at all, as long as you don't ask him how much he makes lol, it's something about him that would be of interest to most people meeting him, perfectly normal to ask

    Seeing as your job can potentially define a lot of who you are, it's one of the first questions I'd ask a date.

    Surely you should be asking his name first? If I'd just met someone and that was the first question they'd asked me I'd be a bit put off

    Superficial gold digger types usually ask this pretty early on in an interaction, rather than taking an interest in you/the connection, but there are ways of asking without being quite so obvious/making it at least look like you're not just performing a box ticking exercise :scrooge:

    Beautiful, intelligent ambitious women don't tend to work in grocery stores so I probably won't have that problem.

    that's essentially what a first date is though, a box ticking exercise.

    That's what I say but I'm always being told not to think that way. I don't wanna ask a dude and it turns out he has a *****y Job making him feel bad after.
