Is it a turn off or intimidating if a girl you are dating makes way more money than you do? What if she buys you expensive gifts etc and pays for your vacation etc... Would you feel bought?
Guys, would you date a girl who makes way more money than you?

Are you the girl making more money than me? If so I'd let myself be bought... doctor
On a more serious note, men feel like they have to be the bread winners, pride, manliness etc. It's only a recent thing that women are no more independant, most young men now will have prrobably come from a home where the dad made the money/most money... it's something most will have grown up with.
As a lad... I don't think I'd be bothered. I'd just be grateful I'm with a girl who's making a good living and if things got serious, talk of family etc I'd actually be pleased. I'd happily look after my kids, work part time rather than go and work all day. She can do it instead :) hahaha1
No for multiple reasons, one I have traditional views secondly the chances of that happening are very slim. The only high paying jobs around here in Kansas are mine, factory and plant jobs not really work that requires a women's touch plus women don't really do that kind of work.1
I have a partner that does make more than me but that's all right because she is doing what she loves and I am doing what I love. That doesn't mean she is better but we found something that will make us feel closer because we let each other follow our own goals with no thinking "I can't do that because it wouldn't be fair" or "society won't like us for bending the rules". We grew as two people looking to build a future together not two building for the one to support us.1
If she makes way more money then me then it would probably mean she is very successful. I would have a huge amount of respect and pride in her for that! It would also most likely mean she is intelligent, which is a HUGE turn on! So YES I would date a girl who made more then me and it would make her that much more attractive to me for being smart and successful!0
I wouldn't mind it but I also wouldn't want her to pay for absolutely everything. I would also like to contribute to some degree whenever I can.1
That's not gonna happen bc i will be earning more thann her. So no prob, i would date a rich girl1
I would defiantly date a girl who makes more money than me. Money is money0
so what she makes more money than you. You really gonna base a relationship of who makes more money and other trivial aspects in life? It matters more if you two are compatible and care for each other than anything else.0
Never in a million years1
No it is an embarrassment to the guy and possibly hurt his pride. Maybe male gold diggers will date.1
It is a little intimidating because guys usally like to get nice stuff for their girl1
Say what sugar momma?! :D0
I wouldn't stick around just for money so no it wouldn't bother me1
Heck yes, it would take some pressure off me to bring in all the money. Go make that money girl!0
I won't care if she made more money than I do or if she bought/paid things for me but if she uses that to her advantage, then we'll have a problem. I know a few guys that broke up with there girlfriends because she made more money1
No. I don't because I think guys want dignity1
Thanks is great0
Yes y not !!!1
Yes. Some guys are insecure about that because they have a traditional view that they should be the provider and therefore earn more money. If a girl earns more money then great! I wouldn't let her buy me heaps of stuff, it wouldn't be fair
In my point of view , i will feel useless :> but it doesn't matter if its true love because true love defeats everything1
As long as the love and commitment on both sides of the relationship I wouldn't feel intimidated by a women who made more than me0
No , cause she would always show off1
Yes why not0
No for a time period guys will notice she is not for love only for money then the guy will kick her out from his heart1
Sure we would if we love that person enough0
No i cant1
