Okay, would a woman in general, date a guy who is inferior than her? What I meant by that, he might not have much money than you; He might not driving a nice car like you; he might work under you; his education level is lower than you. All the factors to be considered, would you date a guy like that? It just a question to ask our ladies here in general.

Does that matter? I always believe that if the man is not rich and can't provide me with the glitters of the world, then I will compensate for the loss by earning and enriching myself and seek for self satisfaction as long as he can provide me with his true and sincere love. I believe he did not wish to be in that miserable position but fate has it that he meets a woman who can accept him as he is and let him be inspired by every success of a woman. We will never know what the future holds for us. The inspiration he gets from having a successful woman might spur him to be successful one day and he can change the whole scenario and be someone we never regretted to be with in the first place. I will date a guy for what he is and not what he has.

I don't believe there is anyone out there who is 'inferior' to me and not having as much money, in my opinion, does not make them so. I couldn't care less how much is in a man's bank balance; there are qualities that are so much more valuable for sustaining a relationship. It's his attitude towards money that I would take notice of because, if two people have different views on how to deal with finances it can contribute to big problems down the track.

dating men inferior than us is just normal.. but in a long run it can be a cause of misunderstanding and arguments. i said it based on my experiences alone. i have dated men inferior than me before and the main issues that always concerned them is than they feel unsure about their feelings for me coz they believe theyre inferior to me and they worry about how other people will look at them. they thought people will think that theyre only using me and my advantages to make them superior. thats all.. happy mylotting!

Yes, I still date guys who is inferior than me. I know woman nowadays really stands up at the crowd, there are lots of women who take her superiority over or to some point. Others may see it very unsual thing but somethimes it speaks up to personal understanding.

That title was VERY misleading. I was going to say shame on you but its nice that you cleared up any chance for misconceptions. I would date a man that makes less money than me. That is actually what I am hoping for. I want to bring in the income along with the man, but I wouldn't mind making more. i think some men might believe that more money being contributed means that household duties are unnecessary since they are the reasons for the house in the ifrst place. i think a man with less money would be more sensible and attentive to maintaing the household and the relationship.

In my opinion, this won't really be a problem. Being inferior than me does not make the man's whole being. For all I know, he might even be a better person than I am. As long as he does not wallow in self pity, dating somebody like this would be great. Maybe I would learn a thing or two.
