My sil is trying to set me up on a blind date with some guy in her class. I asked her how much he makes, she said he works parttime at walmart but he's in school to be a lawyer. So i told her that when he makes partner, then i'd go out with him. She said my expectations are too high.

I make a comfortable living for my son and I. We're able to travel, dine out, shop, he goes to private school, we take at least 3 vacations a year. I don't want to risk being used or being someones sugarmomma.
I'm not anxious to find a fella, but I occasionally do miss having a companion to spend time with.


Edit: Let me explain this. When I first met my husband, we were both starting out. I was in college and he was starting his business. Those were hard times, but that is what you have to look forward to when you're young. You also know that at some point, your hard work and dedication will pay off. And for me, it has. Yes, this guy may be awesome, and I am sure he is attractive. But I don't want to start over. I am in a good place in my life, both financially and emotionally. So if having financial standards make me a gold digger, so be it.

You want to find a guy based on his salary over his personality? Good luck with that.

Ok.  At this point in my life, I wouldn't date someone who worked at Walmart, either.  I deserve better.

Understandable. I wouldn't date someone who made way less than me because I would feel like they were using me. They may not be, but it's just where I'm comfortable.

I met my husband when he worked at a gas station. Had I waited until he finished school I may have missed out on the wonderful life I now have with him. OP I can see why you are SINGLE.

I think it's great to have standards! For me I don't look at salary, but I don't date anyone not established in a career.

idk, if he works hard and likes what he does (ie doesn't skip work and sit around on his ass) it doesn't matter what he makes or you make you wouldn't be a sugar mama. Happiest couple I know- she makes all the money, he works hard and they both love their jobs. Sometimes he feels like he should be pulling in more money but they have more than they need and are happy. Happy is the important part. That being said I wouldn't want to fall in love with some one who leaves school $250,000 in debt. It might be better for his future family if he kept working at wall mart.
