Do most women want to date down and men date up?
Most Helpful Girl
No, both sexes generally prefer to date equal or better. Occasionally, people will give up on something like sexual attraction for money (usually women to men) or quality conversation for sex (usually men). But I'd imagine people don't want that, they just know if you want something where there's a huge mismatch, you usually give something else up. Studies show similarities often draw people to each other, actually.1
