The question says it all. It's a common belief that women tend to date men who are 'above' them in general, whereas men prefer dating women who are 'below' them. Well, not exactly 'above' and 'below', but I don't know how else to put it here.
So is this actually a 'norm', which very few people tend to break? Because in my personal experience, this has indeed been true most cases.

I'd like to tweak that statement...
Men generally prefer equal or lower
Women generally prefer equal or higher
I do think this is true but with a fair amount of exceptions. :) This trend probably has a lot to do with what is instinctual to both sexes when it comes to attraction. Women want providers, men want feminine.1
