Exception proves the rule would be the most charitable.

Once you go beyond that, you will find someone worth having.
90% + of women are shallow,as are 92.89 % of men.
Slim pickins.

Woman care about 2 things

Money
Fame

Good looks usually gets you fame and popularity, money everything else.

I have never met a single young woman who does not care about money as well as how much money everyone thinks they have, and I have met very few young woman who can manage their money on their own with out the help of a man or parents. Woman tend to be a lot more aware of financial assets when picking a "mate".

One should also be asking this question simultaneously - why do men have such a problem with women who make more money than they do??

I don't think the root of the issue is women looking for a man who makes more money, but a man who's looking for a woman who makes less than they do....some exceptions apply as I've met my fair share of golddigging sloths of men.

While I've never been with a woman that made more money than me.

Interesting idea.....

My tender fragile male ego could handle a woman picking up the tab....

Do you really believe that's the ONLY thing a woman is interested in? You've got some issues, man.

Well lets see I live in Granite bay the wealthiest suburb in Sac, I am under 30, own a home, and got married before I could finish my grad degree. Why dont we ask Rufus the homeless crack head, with no savings, if he is having trouble getting a date this friday. Trust me if there is one thing woman hate being associated with, its a broke man. Woman hate to feel inadequate about things they can not control.

You're hanging out with the wrong women - what does this say about you? People like you who believe this crap are misogynistic clowns. This is just ignorant.

Oh, come on, man, this has nothing to do with what you answered before, or the original question. Who would want to date a homeless crack head? That has nothing to do with ONLY being concerned about financial assests. And your supposed success story doesn't either. Are you saying your wife married you ONLY because of your assests? If so, I wonder how long your marriage will last? Also, what does feeling inadequate about things they can't control have to do with anything? There are so many things none of us can control - doesn't make me feel inadequate. Worrying about things you can't control is a waste of energy.

Not if they love the guy. I think most women just wish for the security of a modest little home they can call their own. The thought of not having a roof over their head would be a scary prospect for the nesting type.
