At 23 the fun begins. When you are young, girls care much less about how much money you make. They care much more about how cool you are status. How attractive you are looks. Living at home in your parents basement is simply not going to cut it. You should have a roommate for the first year or two, post college. If you are extremely good looking or have extremely high status musician, DJ etc. A girl who is a solid 7 still has dating options.
Girls in the 5 and Below Range: As mentioned in the graph… Who cares. Simply avoid them and move on. One day you will black out from partying too much and make a mistake. Do not talk to these girls on purpose! Everyone has a loss somewhere on their dating resume. Girls in the 6 Range: This means you should generate at least the median income.
Girls in the 7 Range: You need to be in decent shape, have decent social skills and not be socially awkward. More importantly, since this is about money, you should generate at least 1. Girls in the 8 Range: Competition is heating up aggressively.
Just like improvement, dating is not a linear curve. It is an exponential curve. Girls in the 8 range know they are attractive. They are approached all of the time and will raise their standards yet again. You need to be in shape, decent looking and have solid social skills.
You also need to generate serious amounts of cash flow to stay in the 8 range consistently. This means you need to generate at least 3. It becomes much more complicated at these levels. Now we are in the upper echelon. These girls have an incredible amount of options. For all you know, they are already high end escorts for wealthy men in the 9 figure range.

Everything in life is relative. Net Worth Can Be Meaningless: Live in an RV… Girls will not care at all. This is where being well rounded will help you immensely. You should have many hobbies.
You leverage these hobbies into interesting experiences which can include the following: No attractive girl is going to enjoy spending her time around a type A boring person. They want excitement and fun. Looking at a year yield curve is no where on her list. Boring City, Limited Upside: This is absolutely critical. If you get into the 3x median income range and find that there is no way to leverage your income… It is time to leave!
In addition, the cities with the least to do typically have the least attractive women! You can apply this across countries as well. Find interesting hobbies and use them to meet the girls you like. If you can spend 3x the median income in your city and are not able to meet women, this is a clear sign that 1 looks, 2 social skills or 3 status needs to be raised immediately. Something needs to be fixed. It explains income, it explains dating and it even explains life experiences.
This is simply reality. Staying Above Average on the Income Side: This one is easy. Read our post on careers and you will have a hard time being below average.
