take for example a girl with an established career and is able to support herself comfortably and you, are still in school with very little income. Would you feel emasculated due to the financial imbalance? How can she get you to overcome this, or is there nothing she can say or do? Would you pass up this girl because of the situation?

Very emasculated, personally. Extremely insecure. Everyone knows women take income into account. Of course, women also look at trajectory; but not as many guys see that. So, if you make it clear that you greatly admire his trajectory or otherwise ambition, then perhaps he'll understand that he has value despite the income and establishment differential. So, emphasizing what you find valuable in him: or his *potential* for growth or future income.
I think it could easily turn into a insecure-implosion. As in, "There's no way she actually wants me when she makes that much money and I make next to nothing." So, discontinued/avoided dating.
Mmmm. I'm not sure if you should address it directly. I would think it'd be better to work it into the conversation subtly, unless it is a VERY big problem for him, in which case he will bring it up and you can talk frankly then, maybe.0
