I'm attracted to ambition and drive. Respect is necessary in a relationship and that is one aspect that drives my ability to respect someone.

I don't think the job matters as much as what they're passionate about and how they're working towards it. I have big financial goals, but my current love interest is about to start a PhD program- not really gonna be a rich person, but I think he's brilliant and he's emotionally honest and very thoughtful/deliberate about us. And he has a passion and he's building his craft. Money has nothing to do with it, since I have more than enough

M. I think there's a minimum threshold, unless you're comfortable with paying for literally everything. It comes down to personality, maturity, and their happiness. I dated a flight attendant who's annual pay was about what my bonus was. She wasn't driven by money and is happier than I'll ever be. It all depends...

I make it clear very early in relationships that I have zero ambition and drive; just happen to have the mba, engineering degrees that made consulting and above avg salary easy to come by

Not based on salary, but passion and drive. Usually the two find themselves in sync. Dated a girl with low salary but worked in social work and loved it. That was enough for me, but similar salary as a basic waitress? Pass

Money doesn't matter at all to me (female) but passion and drive do. Academics, social workers, teachers are my favorite to date. Basically anyone excited to keep learning and growing and getting better is fine by me.

Female here. For me also, financial stability is important but not necessarily the main focus. There are other important things at play- honesty, emotional maturity, loyalty, etc etc. and agree with what most are saying about being passionate and ambitious about his job. I dated a bar tender once, lifestyle didn't work for me. And I'm a older 🐠 so guys that I date now are either already at a stable place or on his way. I've seen too many of my friends in unhappy marriages with so much money they don't know what to do with. 5th ave pent-house and Birkin can't always make you happy.

You should have the dating candidates send you their resumes and choose the one that's most qualified for the job.

So Deloitte2 is a customer service rep, bartender, waitress, social worker, etc. making 35k a scrub?

M here. A girl I'm seeing now is on her way to becoming a dentist. That was and is a major piece of what attracts me to her. But it isn't by any means the only thing. I wouldn't consider myself a gold digger. It's just another piece of the puzzle

I am watching the RNC convention after watching some of the DNC convention last week. They are opposite. It does seem to me that RNC is much less negative and alive.

I prefer positive politics over negative from Biden.
