Hi Susan,

I relate to the difficulty of finding men who are educated, intelligent, and single. The typical social clubs I've gone to have very few men with any college at all. Have you tried personal ads or dating services? I've always thought that's a good way to find someone who falls into a specific niche. Or how about fix-ups by your other lawyer friends?

Your comments about the few educated ones being too into their careers... yes I find that's true in the 30's, but lots of them start to get more interested in relationships and life balance starting in their 40's.

I've also tried dating with a serious mismatch in income & education... it's fun for a while, but then I run into just what you and fallsfall described-- feeling more like 'mommy' than partner, resenting the financial burden, dealing with their resentment of me, and just feeling like there's a whole aspect of myself that I can't share with them. I just think a woman has to keep looking til she finds a guy who feels like an equal partner.
