My SO and I have the same type of job right now, which doesn't make alot of money but it pays well enough to get by. I'm a nursing student graduating this summer and I'm 22, while he is 30 and came here from Africa about 6 years ago. He wants to become a doctor. He already had a degree in Africa but it wasn't going anywhere in Africa and as some already know, it is almost impossible for the USA to accept degrees from other countries. So he has had to start from scratch...

I know I will soon be making more money than him and he has mentioned it but honestly, I admire his drive so much and I know God is going to do wonderful things for him and his career that I really don't mind waiting. He is still taking classes and does very well in the sciences so I have confidence in him...

Plus, from the Mrs. standpoint, IF we get married ( been together for a few years now), it isn't a bad investment because being a doctor is definitely more financially better than being a nurse. He lives rather frugally as a student and I will need to live the same even if I am a nurse because I have certain goals for my future. So, I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. 

I agree that every scenario is different. Look at the person, not always their pocketbook. It's kinda like stocks, pick the right one and it will hopefully be a good return lol.

Lol so this shows her to move on because that's your EX. NOT your current and you've said you haven't been ready to settle down until recently.

Well, if you feel like "YOUR WAITING" maybe its time to move on.
ideally if this is someone who you like and you're compatible with it shouldn't feel like a "wait" at all.

Maybe what your looking for, he just can't provide; something about his drive is suspect or maybe you're just impatient and he's not up to your speed.

Our r/s woes were not financially related. Many wondered how I could leave such a beautiful wealthy woman, but it just goes to show, its' not about the money. It's about whether that person makes you happy or not.
I have been dating, and honestly, there just doesn't seem to be very many available women on my level. Seems like chicks are either drop dead gorgeous w/ extremely limited potential, or homely with great achievements and aspirations, lol. My queen is waiting for me somewhere though.

So why dont you wait (6 years or so) on the gorgeous ones to step it up in the potential department or the homely ones to get fly?Confused Please dont be so short-sighted tru
