for example, I know an educated, smart, attractive lady who makes 190k a year from her job, has 2 rental properties in the US, another rental property in malaysia, has her own car rental business as side income. In total, her income is around 300k a year. would she intimidate the average joe so he wouldn't date her?
Most Helpful Opinions
I'd date her if we clicked. It's only intimidating if a guy feels she expects him to be rich too. So, I wouldn't be inclined to approach someone that wealthy, because I would assume that they are likely looking for someone who lives a similar lifestyle to her own. But if I started talking to a woman... and we seemed to hit it off... I'm not suddenly going to be intimidated if I find out she has all that wealth. I may be a little surprised that she seems into me. But I'd go with it. It's not about the money, it's about the person. The only "intimidating" part would be the average joe assuming that he likely wasn't the kind of guy this woman would be looking for (which is usually a fair and true assumption you must admit).0
No. It's like asking if a wolf is intimidated by a dog just because the dog has a home and the wolf is homeless.
The animals that we are, pay more attention to who's manlier and physically stronger.
If you're interested in a guy but question whether he will be intimidated, give the support he needs and reprogram his subconscious mind by making him listen to the most powerful masculinizing guided hypnosis affirmation meditation:https://www.youtube.com/embed/E85pctJ1byk0
I dont believe guys are intimated by rich successful women. Guys think first with their penis0
What Girls & Guys Said
LOL, no, they usually want to date and marry them. But do you think this woman, especially if she's Asian, is going to want to date an "average Joe"? No way, she's going to think he's beneath her. And guys know women like her think like that.3
You're definitely Jennifer. Anyone can be intimidated by that person if they let themselves be. 300k per year is not a lot but in comparison to most people it is.
Yes some men are intimidated by that but they are doing it to themselves it has nothing to do with the women.
Same with women thinking men dont like smart women. That is your choice.
I hate the word smart though. Anyone can gather knowledge. Smarts are so overrated. Self-discipline is gold. And the ability to change is diamond.1
No men aren’t intimidated by that. What a woman makes isn’t really even in a man’s equation as to whether he would date her or not. Most times it’s irrelevant. The same w a female’s education. Sounds shitty but that’s usually how it is. Women on the other hand tend to value men based on what they have. Men are perfectly fine dating a hot chick from McDonalds, women usually aren’t. If a man is interested in her because of her money that should be a red flag that there’s a good chance he’s going to be a lazy POS. Women tend to tell themselves oh he’s intimidated by you cause you’re a boss bitch, but in reality it’s not that he’s intimidated by you he doesn’t want to put up w you. Most men don’t want a girl who has masculine qualities. If things were good between us sure I’d date her, but not because of her money. Also, if she’s always busy chances are she isn’t going to have time for him so that may be another reason why he wouldn’t date her.3
No. Men couldn't care less how much a woman earns. He never sees a dime of it anyway.
The only issue this would cause is that she's most likely looking for a partner who earns as much as she does, if not more. I don't earn that so I'm out lol.13
Men are more likely to be intimidated by tall and muscular women, it's more masculine traits.
Hmm, we prefer being the bread winner, but personally I wouldn't mind being the stay at home dad. If I have to clean at work I am less likely to want to clean at home. But otherwise I think I would think I am less of a man normally, but willing to be the stay at home husband.1
Some men it may, but, some it wouldn't. I personally don't give a crap about how much she makes. It has more to do with if she's happy with whatever she is doing.
If I had the choice between the above-mentioned woman making 300K a year, who hated her job (s), constantly complained about them all the time, and someone making 30 to 40 K that was perfectly happy doing what they do, I would rather the latter. The constant complaining, and nothing ever changing would get old real quick.0
Why don't you explain to the class why you are intimidated by money. Do you feel you lack a principles and that you will easily fold when offered money to do things you would not do otherwise? Are you fearful of money because you think people can control you with it? How is someone else having money a personal problem for you?0
Not intimidated but more self-restrained as far as courting them goes.
It doesn't increase her desirability but it makes the time and effort spent to seduce her less likely to be fruitful.
Thus men that have better alternatives are more likely to go for them.
And men with a total income over 300K certainly have them.0
Not "intimidated", we just don't want the hassle. Women like to say they "intimidate" men when the reality is men see women like this as too masculine and demanding. I don't know how many times men have to say we don't care about your business success. You are using a woman's measurement of men, not a man's measurement of women.6
its not intimidation as much as these are not important qualities a man seeks in a woman and having her be this successful means she is going to be super impossible to deal with since you need sex and she needs nothing from you. Moreover, she is either not going to share her money with you or she is not going to respect you. one or the other0
No. This is the myth that will never die.
A woman who knows how to treat a man well will always be attractive to men. If she's smart and rich, that's just a bonus.
Many smart and/or rich women n struggle with men, but it has nothing to do with being smart/rich, and everything to do with their personalities and attitudes toward men and relationships. Those are the facts. Do with them what you want.0
Not intimidated, no. Usually guys will avoid women like that more because of the woman's attitude than intimidation.4
Men do not get intimidated by successful women. As a matter of truth, most men do not find them attractive because of the person they become their attitude and the kind of energy they emit after being “successful"0
I'm not. All 3 of my ex's were pretty smart and the last was from a rich family. Her dad was a famous author and, last I heard, had 28 books that he'd written. It never bothered me at all!!0
That would drive me nuts. I think it’s masculine instinct to be better at girls at everything, and that includes money. Anyway, you date who you want, but I wouldn’t date a girl who had more money than me. No offense girls:)0
The real question here isn't that a man would be intimidated, but would she be interested in dating a man she considers below her as many rich people would. Most men go for whomever and when rejected, go to the next.0
I would not be, it shows she is smart, driven and knows how to manage money.
Nothing wrong with that at all.0
No man cares about your job or your career. It means nothing to us. We just want you to do something that you’re happy doing so you’re not a wretched bitch to be around.1
Not in the least. Money plays no factor unless she's literally shoving it in my face bragging that she makes more than I do otherwise good for her ** applause0
A womans money isn't worth much to a man cause women don't often spoil men. In relationships a womans wealth is generally a plus. Similar to the concept of if a woman can cook. Money isn't intimidating so much as for women it naturally sets wealthy women with a smaller dating pool due to how hypergamy is set up.
A poor woman you see will see every guy as an option whereas a rich woman has less options thanks to how hypergamy works.
Hypergamy the natural instinct to look and more often than not need a partner or individual (s) that earn the most in both clout and money. This means most women instinctually are naturally in a weird way are prone to the core concept of gold digging. A woman making 300k owns a buisness isn't gonna consider any guys who probably are barely scraping by at 10K or even hell up to 299K, MOST women want the highest possible amount so we are talking then. ONLY guys who are making EVEN or vastly more than what a woman is already earning or making.
Which sounds good until you do the societal polls of how many men are making 6 figure salaries. And its like the top 10% maybe 15% if you include the ones that inherit wealth. The point is that its not that rich women intimidate men. Its just 85% to 90% of men just aren't valid hypergamous partners. And sure women can date lower but whats the point in that knowing full well how modern divorce courts work. Its actively taking on the risk of having to pay out the partner that is making or earning less.
Whether women want to admit it most women are monetarily incentivized to be predatory. It doesn't help that women can argue prenups be invalidated if they were signed in distress.
Men aren't intimidated by rich women they just know how society works a rich woman isn't gonna pick a poor ass schmuck that may as well be living out of dumpster. Its just the ugly reality of how society works.
there are a lot of men that are intimidated by rich smart women who make more money than them
They aren't intimidated they know a rich woman ain't gonna stay with a poor man its just the reality of society.
Maybe 1% tops of women are sugar mom's and even then most of society calls those women more often than not cradle robbers.
there are a lot of men who are very egotistical and wouldn't marry a woman who makes more money than him.
Why are you asking this question when you’ve already decided the answer?
because i want to see how many people agree with me.
