A woman has been branded a 'snob' by her friends and users of the Mumsnet website for refusing to go on a date with a man who still lives with his parents and works in retail at the age of 30.

The woman took to Mumsnet to vent her frustration where she was met with mixed response...

"I'm in my late twenties. I'm intelligent, have a career, earn above average and have my own house..."

"My friend seems shocked and calls me snobby because I don't want to go on a date with her friend. Her argument is that it's about the person and not their ambitions etc but surely this is a part of a person? I'm attracted to intelligence, ambition and independence."

It's clear that her friends thought she was out of line, but so did many other users...

"My son has a Masters Degree, is highly intelligent and works in retail. He also lives with us. He is a great young man, but has struggled to get other work for a number of reasons." replied one woman.

"You are ridiculously snobby. You know nothing about this man apart from his job title. Do this bloke a favour & decline a date." bluntly replied someone else.

Others urged the woman not to be so hasty in her judgements, rightly pointing out that "he could be finishing his PhD or working at the shop and writing a bestselling novel at night for all you know."

Do you think the woman was out of line?
