Why do men date below their level?

Anonymous
why do successful men date girls who are pretty but unsuccessful when there are so many girls out there who are pretty, smart and have good jobs?

if you were in the top 5% of successful guys, wouldn't you date someone equally as successful?

discuss.

SIMILARITY AND COMPANIONSHIP ARE THE CURRENCY OF ATTRACTION, FOR BETTER OR WORSE. HOT PEOPLE WILL DATE HOT PEOPLE. RICH PEOPLE WILL DATE RICH PEOPLE. INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WILL DATE INTELLIGENT PEOPLE.
just bc yr pretty means little unless yr dating down. beauty is rare, sure, but in a bubble of hot people yr one of many. they probably never been w one, that's y they forgo everything for looks.
