Date who you wana date but it shows that you are controlling and you want to have "one-up" on your man. you don't want them to have one up on you. its not a power issue. you should focus more on the feelings and less on wallets.
What possible reason could make it bad? The only one I can think of is if you're not even giving a chance to people who make more and for some reason are going only for people who make less. But if it's involuntary, who the hell cares?
