Alright, I'm kinda drunk so I'm gonna be real as fuck with you, so hang onto your butt. If you don't wanna read on, just ignore, but if you wanna absorb my info with a completely open mind, read on.
Men don't give a shit about your master's degree or how successful you want to be. Even if they say they do, they don't. It's not that they're lying, it's more that they've convinced themselves that they don't care. They want you to be like a woman, so when you display masculine traits (i. e, strong meritocratic aspirations) you've devalued yourself. Yeah, I know, you feel good about yourself, it makes you happy that you might earn a lot of money for your high-status job and that's certainly not a bad thing, but it coincides with the type of life you ultimately want, and the type of life HE ultimately wants.
You KNOW you're not gonna stay in permanent relationship with a man who earns less and has a crappier job than you, don't you? Ask yourself properly: "Am I 100% okay with marrying and having children with a man that I'm more successful than? Am I okay with spending the next 65 years of my life with this man?" You'll find your answer. You want a man who earns even more than you do, even if you earn a lot of money yourself, and please don't insult mine or your intelligence by claiming otherwise.
To give a little example, Margaret Thatcher, arguably one of the most famous "strong women", certainly didn't enjoy that feeling when she looked back on her life and realised what she had sacrificed. Her homelife, getting to know her children, her interactions with her husband. She regretted her vocation because she sacrificed a part of herself to it.
