mod (Andy) note: "Blast from the past - Best of Eddie" - This one is originally from January 2011 . If there's an old post from Eddie you'd like to see up again shoot me a message.

When women get together with their friends and talk about the new guy in their life, one of the first questions that always comes up is, "What does he do?", which - let's face it - is code for, "How much does he make?". Your salary matters to women. Going all the way back to caveman days, women have always sought mates who could protect and provide. It's no different today.

But in today's world of empowered females, why does your salary still matter so much? Professional women today earn as much and sometimes more than their male counterparts. Yet these women expect even more from their mates than women who don't make as much. What gives? Match.com has an interview that may shed some light on the subject.

They interviewed five professionals (three women and two guys) all aged 25-30. Not surprisingly, the women had the most to say on the subject. Regardless of how much money they personally made, they still want a man who can take care of them and pick up the tab. And they don't just want it, they expect it:

Haley: My current boyfriend pays for everything and I think I make more than he does, but I like it that way because it feels romantic, caring and chivalrous. Dating a man without money is really tough because you end up paying for everything and that wears on you after awhile.

Yeah, us guys know how you feel, honey.

So this made me curious. Does a woman's interest in your salary turn you off, or have you just come to expect it? I'm not talking about obvious gold-diggers here, I'm talking about regular women you might be romantically interested in. Do you prefer a woman to be coy about it, or would you rather she just ask you the straight-up numbers?

Let's face it: being the one with money in a relationship is empowering (though we all know that men don't ultimately have the real power in a relationship). Having money eliminates a certain amount (but not all) of relationship B.S. If nothing else, it gives you the power to say no to attending her idiot sorority sister's wedding in Hoboken. But what do you trade for that power?

I'll admit, I've been out of the dating scene for almost a decade now. And I married a woman who was at least my equal and really had her shit together, so finances have never been an issue. Plus, she's a Southern girl, so even if my money was ever a concern of hers she'd been raised with the gentility to never let me know it.

I'm interested to hear from you guys. Does it bother you that a woman expects to be taken care of? Or is that just the traditional male role? I'd love to hear from the female monkeys, too. Do you ladies in the business ever date "down"? What's it like to make more money than your boyfriend? And any male monkey's who date "up", what's it like to make less than your girlfriend? Is money still that big a dynamic in relationships?

I'll leave you with Beyonce's take on the subject:

    I dispute the entire notion that women are attracted to money more then other things. When I first got out of college I totally looked like the "preppy banker" and I had a job in finance at a big-name firm that was good enough to sound lucrative (even though it wasnt) and I did OK with girls but nothing special. Hit or miss with alot more misses. Now that my career is more established and I can dress/look basically however I want I have much longer hair, only shave about once a week, and dress in a way that does not say "money" at all (when i ask women to guess what I do for a living most say "artist" or "musician")....and my success with women is at a much different level then it was back then. I find that most girls are really bored by finance jobs even if they are high paying...nowadays if I have to tell a girl what I do I just say something like "im a finance geek" or something like that and move on to another topic. I think women are attracted to fun and excitement much more then money. Most really super-attractive girls in NYC will be gone in under 30 seconds if you start talking about how much money you make.

    In b4 sexism.

    On the real, if a girl asked me what I did, I would straight up tell her I was back office or something. If she still likes me after that, then she's a keeper.

    This has to be the only site that this is even an answer on. Do you really think the average person has any idea what the difference is..."I work at CS/GS/MS/JPM/Barclays/ Insert bank here" "ohhhh".....No girl cares whether you're running a trading desk at GS, a banker at Barclays, or do Settlements at Morgan...they don't. Trust me.Most people have no idea.

    I'm sitting at the bar some years ago and its still pretty early. Next to me the two bored waitresses chatter. One's hot, one's not. The Hot One rambles on loudly and obnoxiously about her boyfriend who she so very much adores. He's attending a top MBA program and already has a $150K gig lined up. He's handsome, he's kind, he's amazing in bed, she'll do anything for him, he's the apple of her eye...yakkedy fucking yack.

    The next morning when I left her place, I lifted $60 of her dresser. I never spoke to her again until about six months later when I went back to the spot. Rinse, repeat. She didn't leave any cash lying around the second time, however.

    Remember that story the next time you feel like pedestaling a bottle of beer that will turn into yeast juice in 12-16 months.

    ...and what's more exciting then praying your husband sells a painting or two so you can feed your babies this week?!?

    It's also worth considering a couple things. Dressing the way you did vs. the way you do might imply something to the girl(s). Being confident goes a long way and if girls think you are trying to impress them with your money, but you are really a douche, don't expect too much more attention from them then what it takes to garner a few drinks from you at the club. I'm not saying your a douche, but it's possible given your relative sucess and youth combined that you came across this way...so that could be a factor. Also realize a year can make a huge difference in a woman's life, so does location (kinda). Assuming the more ambitions people flock to larger cities, the girls you typically meet there are going to be far less inclined to settle down and would much rather hook up for the night. Girls I know from back home are 25-27 and they freak out because all of the guys/girls back home are settling down into longer term relationships, getting engaged, married and many are having kids. When you are just one of a few in that setting, as a girl you will be much more eager to find a decent guy and skip a few steps. Girls I've meet in larger cities tend to be even older than the 25-27 age bracket and rather content with just hooking up for the time being. Of course they want to settle down if they found the perfect man, but for now they will stick with hooking up with the decent guys and typically stay more focused on their career.

    With that said, they still have that internal clock that tries to convince them everyday to get married. If the timing is right you could find yourself in a position, given your age and financial status, to be a very good target. Even if they don't intend to walk the aisle anytime in the near future, they will slowly start to find someone worth being with, even if it's subconsciously.

    I never pay for anything. I have all the power. I don't cuddle after sex. I occasionally beat her to keep things dramatic. I have a 17 year old mistress.

    Virtually everyone in this thread is a sucker, trying to analyse relationships in a logical/rational manner. Don't ever communicate with a womans brain, communicate with her pussy - and fuck her mind.

  • Bondarb's picture

    You guys are giving girls way to much credit for being rational and analytical about who they hook up with. At the moment when it is decided whether or not she wants you she is full of emotion and isnt doing a cost/benefit analysis about whether you can provide for her children. Once you have hooked up with her, she will continue to do so if you are good in bed almost without exception. This idea that women are constantly focused on balancing the finances of some future family has no basis in reality in my experience....and I have a few years on most of you guys.

    That said, I agree that if you are in a relationship that is focused on the future and all you talk about is your job, bills, kids, etc then if you become poor it will change the way your girlfriend views you. but that is only because YOU based your whole image around money and being a provider...I know several guys who are flat broke and regularly have attractive women who want to have serious relationships with them. I have one friend in particular who when we are out if a girl mentions money he'll laugh and say "yeah if you want money talk to him (pointing to me), I am basically broke!" and girls love it because he has a fun vibe and you can tell that he isnt uncomfortable with himself.

  • marcellus_wallace's picture

    ^^Agree with you to a point.

    That said I think a young banker with the whole getup vs. the dude with long hair, unshaven just relaxed. Shows who actually has $$$ or cares to have $$$. The banker with the getup ain't exactly dressing/presenting themselves like that for fun or by choice. They are doing because its connected to their profession and potential wealth.

    The other dude is saying, I am fine being how I am because I know either way I will make $$$ or do well for myself. It is that same I don't give a shit attitude that the artist/writer uses. Ethan Hawke in reality bites. That wins girls over.

  • Midas Mulligan Magoo's picture

    Going off some of the comments here I would venture to guess that a majority of the comments come from guys who are on their first, second or third sexual partner. The shit I am hearing is not only fucking stupid...pathetic...lame...etc...it is just embarrassing for you.

    1) the notion that you need something other than a pulse to get pussy is comical, what the fuck to do you idiots think this world revolved around for 49,500 years before Shylock came along?

    2) Bondarb gets love because from reading his post i can tell he has had sex with more than one woman in the last 12 months...if you do not fall into this category you need to either immediately:

    a) commit fucking suicide
    b) get laid

    There are no alternatives, monkeys.

    3) Fuck what women say... they lie it is in their blood, their guts and their brains. They lie without even knowing they lie. If you are doing anything with a woman and counting on her "honesty", her "reason", her "logic".... you will be the one getting fucked.

    4) Pussy is a disposable item. Every broad...no matter how perfect is replaced by a newer model every 5 years.

    5) YES!!!! Women are cell phones.

    6) STOP pedestaling the pussy. It is just pussy. Like an empty milk crate. That is its value. Disposable.

    7) If you are less than 40 years of age at this point and you are committing to any woman who does not absolutely worship the ground you walk on, you are the sucker at the table.

    8) Use your balls, not your brain.

    9) Sing opera before quoting Oprah.

    10) As a continuation of #1....$$$ is something women take from LAMES...if you believe that $ has anything to do with getting ass you are out of your mind and have no clue about the way the world works. Put away your pocket protectors and travel the world. Finer women than you can ever see in NYC, LA, MIA, etc will lick your feet clean...and you fools are mortgaging your lives...

  • macro's picture

    What bondarb is getting at is that money and success are more for yourself than for women. Doing something that he loves every day and getting rewarded for it has imbued him with a swagger that women find attractive. But for people who chase money out of insecurity, they will just be pouring something into a hole that can never be filled.

    Women inwardly laugh at rich dudes who have no game. A lady friend of mine lives in LA and rolls with a crew of hot girls who find these rich guys who pay for everything (weekends in vegas, resorts, etc). They use them for a bit and then move on to the next, all while keeping his balls blue. They go home from these vacations and hook up with poor guys.

    Perhaps it's just a product of the family I was raised in (my dad had/made money, my mom was a homemaker and good looking), but I just feel that the whole rich guy (high IQ) and hot girl (high EQ) is the natural order of things (at least at the top). It provides a good balance of parents for your Children too... mom can help you to be well-mannered and cool in school, dad doesn't give a &^@! as long as you get straight A's and make varsity. They can do good cop bad cop when you get in trouble...

    Haven't you guys studied any marketing? The "young banker" and the "dude with long hair" are competing in different markets, offering a different product/service, catering to a different niche, etc. The "dude" will probably slay way more indie chicks, hipster chicks, artists, pot heads, etc. While the banker will do much better with models, professional cuties, MILFs, etc.

  • Jackiesinthesun's picture

    Being a chimpette and in a long term relationship, I find it's not about money, it's about a man acting like a man. 'providing' is an ambiguous term. Most women just want to be treated like a lady, I'd take a gentlemen that opens my door, compliments me, surprises me with something thoughtful sporadically (doesn't have to be pricey) and cooks every once and a while over some jerk that's making more than me.

The only point I was trying to make, is that I didn't like the general point marcellus was making because his argument doesn't take into account the differences in girls they're likely to attract.

    Why your salary matters to her? Hmm. I guess I'll write an article for the women entitled, "Why your cellulite matters to him".

    As the now famous Craigslist ad so beautifully described, women are a depreciating asset while a man's earning ability is an appreciating commodity. All men just need to keep that in mind when a woman who will begin to develop cellulite around the age of 25 can be seen taking interest in you for anything else other than your personality and character (being self sufficient can fall under the category of character). If your earning ability (not your independence or self sufficiency) is on her top 10 ten short-list then run--run until you can't run anymore.

    My wife is very successful and worked during the years when I was in business school. For a period of about four to five years she made more than me. At the current point in time I am making much more than she does, and I much prefer this way. She is still working with an intense media type job, which I hate because my hours are so bad.

    When i am free, she is often not free - for me it would be nice to,have somebody I could lean on to help me with the small things I never have time to during the week. Or she will bug me incessantly with questions about her business that frankly I just don't want to deal with after working 100 hours the prior week.

    I would ultimately prefer to 100% take care of her but we are making great money, she has a super cool job she loves, and she is a type A who would go crazy sitting at home all day. She is a super cheapskate and we save a bunch of money, which is great for both of us long term. We try to leave egos at the door. She was the bread winner in the past. Now that role has shifted to me. For all I know, I will be fired next month.

    But yeah I know her girlfriends do chat about what their guys do for work. They definitely keep tabs and the single ones are always asking if I know any good guys at work.

    Staying on topic: call me 1950's but I will always date a girl who makes less than me. It's a power thing, and I like calling the shots in a relationship. Period.

    Jesus Christ, if my GF answered my texts maybe she would get gifts and dinner.

    It is so funny to read this post in the thread after almost 2 years! Your that time GF is now just a friend and settling down in life with someone else. Cheers to the crazy old times!

    I'd like to think questions about money would play second fiddle to whether you enjoy your time together, but hey, I must be pretty naive.
