My SO makes less money than me right now! That is about to change though, he’s in a field with huge money growth and I’m… a librarian.

I never really thought about it, though I might if he were older than me, but I am 7 years older than him so I never really considered it an issue. And in October, he’ll make more than me and it will only go up after that.

I never really considered it dating down, it’s just the way things are.

If you defined dating down as dating someone who was not ambitious or driven or hard working, then no, I wouldn’t. Ever.

Also, he pays for everything, the only thing we split the cost of are big trips. Its a point of pride with him, though I try to sneak in paying occasionally.

I make more money than my FI! But not by much.  And actually wheni first met him he was unemployed. But it’s him that I fell in love with…not his money.

My ex was unemployed. Please note I said ex.

He enjoyed living off of me for many a year…… He was lazy and entitled.

I have no issues with dating a man who earns less though, as long as they contribute!

My Hubby earns more than me, but then, I only work 3.5 days a week now. I am paid a wage that is more than most FT people earn though- lucky me.
