My friends and I have have had bad experiences dating guys that make less money than us. The power balance seems to inevitably get thrown off as the girl ends up wearing the pants in the relationship and the guy inevitably finds a nit-picky reason to break up with the banker chick, only to start dating a PR girl. If having a "high powered" job or a larger paycheck than your boyfriend means that you're emasculating him ... who are bankers girls supposed to date besides the obvious...other finance types? And - what're peoples' thoughts on this? If you're a guy, could you date a girl that made more money than you? IE - if you were working at a MM bank, how would you feel about your girlfriend working at a BB? Caveat - no, I don't think that someone's salary determines their self worth etc etc etc ..
