It seems like a lot of guys don't care how much money or education a girl has when deciding to date her. I know men are mostly about looks and the visual, but don't they realize that money is important too? Most women I know with respect for themselves wouldn't meet a guy who had nothing to bring to the table (money wise) and begin dating him, but would most guys?
Most Helpful Guy
Women don't respect men that earn less than them, that's the bottom line. They may say they do, but in honesty, they don't. Thatt's why they'll say things like "men are scared by smart women". No we're not scared, you just don't want us if you make $80k a year and we make $40k. Women aren't all gold diggers, that being said, most women look down on guys who make less than them. It isn't so much that men don't factor in what a woman makes, we just know that she'll most likely resent us for being "not as good as her".
It would be like when a girl stops taking care of her body or looking good, the guy will not respect or love her as much. A man's ability to bring home the bacon is why women get married most of the time, to a strong degree. I'm not saying that love doesn't come into it, but you don't see too many women rushing out to marry broke guys. The ones that do marry broke guys tend to the medical or law students that will have good future income potential later in life. A woman's love of a man is largely based upon what he can do for her in the financial sense.
