    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

Would you be comfortable dating a woman who made significantly more money than you?

    being the broke lanky guy...i just met a girl two weeks ago who is born SUPER rich (for real..), stronger than me (not hard), 2 years older than me (im 19...), and about the same height (184) , wich means she was taller than me with her shoes and hair!
    eventhough she i fucked me the whole time on the dance floor...i got so uncomfortable that i didnt even got her phone number... [​IMG] good god..she was the hottest, most perfect girl that ever hit on me

    I don't think this would bother me (although I've never done it).... however, I would hesitate to date anyone who worked more hours than I do.

    You must not know much about SF. The only women in the world who make more money than the big-timers on SF are Christy and Alice Walton.

    It goes without saying that both rate -1,000 on the SF looks scale, and are also obviously outside the max date-able age of 24.

    Therefore, your question is moot.

    What about JK Rowling and Oprah?

    My wife has always made two to five times more than I did. It was fantastic.

    However, after a while the financial ambition becomes kind of a turn off because it sort of dominates her thoughts at all times.

    Really, just once, I'd like to talk about a book or something.

    Nah. It's better to have a woman who talks about money all the time instead of, say, make up or revenge or how much she hates you. ;-)

    Dated someone that made way more than significantly more than me, I was fine with it but the desire to compete was kind of killing me.

    Not much background to this one. Would you be comfortable dating a woman who makes significantly more money than you? I don't mean a few grand above you; more like double or triple what you make.
    Only if she had big tits. Really big tits! Firm, natural really big tits!

    Half of the Wal-Mart clan went to my school when I was there; they are the richest white trash in the world. The boys only care about basketball; 22" chrome rims on their ridez, sweatpants with the leg rolled up everyday with a hat cocked to the side, eating burgers from the food court and reading SLAM and the Source. I don't know if that's the way all heirs to 20+ billi are, but it was a pretty sad sight to see everyday.

    I wanted to revive this thread as I recently met a girl who will surely be making A LOT more money than me that I am considering dating...

    I'm decidely in the "yes" camp on this issue. I would not be insecure at all about dating or marrying a woman who makes more than me, and in fact I would be psyched to be with a rich, successful woman.

    That being said, I have a somewhat more complex question: Would you date a girl who is super successful (a probable salary of > 500,000 and a Doctor) who is down to earth, interesting and fun to hang out with, but not very attractive?

    This might seem kind of shallow at first, but from my prospective, I'm having a real dilemna with this issue. On one hand, I hit it off with this girl and she's just out of a top med school, top of her class and poised to be incredibly rich and successful, and I will most likely never match her success/wealth myself. She is very into me and made this clear by asking me out. The thing is, I'm not really that attracted to her - she isn't ugly, but just doesn't really do it for me. We have pretty good chemistry though...

    Do I give it a shot and go on the date or not?

    I don't understand this ^.
    You have good chemistry?
    What is the question then, Kenneth?

    What does this mean? Are you holding out for a Victoria's Secret model? If she's attractive enough to be girlfriend material (which I would put around a 7 on a 1 - 10 scale), go out with her. If she's not, don't. If it's a borderline call, go for it. Very often a woman's personal qualities make up for what you initially perceive to be physical shortcomings.

    When I say we have "good chemistry" I mean that we have a lot in common and have had good conversations the two times we've talked.

    Ambulance chaser - I'm not holding out for a Victoria's secret model, but I have dated and can pickup much hotter girls than this one. I'd put her at about a 6 on the 1-10 scale and its pretty borderline. I like her personality and respect her drive, but just not initially attracted to her really.

    I'm wondering if I should give it a shot and maybe develop an attraction or if its a waste of time.
