Ladies I want to hear your response to this one. Let's say you make twice as much as a man or you are twice as educated. Whatever the case, does the guy have a chance?

Well, I'm planning on getting a PhD; it's basically required for what I want to do (academia, in the long term). So it would be stupid of me to expect a guy to have as much education as I do at that point. I'd prefer that my guy either have at least a Bachelor's degree or be in the process of pursuing one. If, however, he's a soldier, policemen, fireman, or other job like that which doesn't require an advanced education, then that would be okay. But if a guy didn't value education, I'd have a very hard time getting along with him. In short, half as much education isn't a big deal as long as he values education and (in most cases) at least had something post-high school.
As far as money, well, people in the academic realm tend not to make a lot of money. So if my guy made only half as much as me, that's probably about what you'd make working full-time at McDonalds. A slight exaggeration, perhaps, but my point is made. A guy's gotta either be a student or be making a decent living for me to consider dating him. My job won't ever support a family by itself, that's for sure!4
