and by less, I mean considerably less. If one person makes minimum wage and the other gets paid a decent salary, will those lifestyle differences become too much over time?
I've already noticed that when I talk to guys who make a lot less than I do, that a lot of them make uncomfortable comments about money. They'll also reference my big "fancy" job. I am thankful to have my livelihood but my job is not fancy at all and I'm not rich. I budget and sometimes worry about bills too but since u make in some cases double what they bring home it can be awkward
Would I be shallow if I only dated guys who make similar salaries? At least then I wouldn't be hearing them complain about how through can't afford things that are normal for me, and I won't have to deal with a lot of the insecurity and resentment some guys seem to have.

I am attracted to women who are successful or have ambition to be successful in their professional lives, I think I'd find it difficult to relate to someone who was content to stay in a minimum wage job or on benefits.
It isn't about salaries for me, I wouldn't care what they brought in, as long as they wanted to achieve something in their working life. For example a lot of academics achieve great things in their research but don't earn much money. I don't think I could be with someone who didn't share my aspiration to achieve something they could be proud of in their work.
If it's purely about wanting someone who can match your salary so you can go to nice places together then perhaps that is a little shallow. If it's about wanting to be with someone who share's your outlook in that way, then no I don't think that isn't shallow at all.1
