My boyfriend is one of them. Well, depending on what constitutes as rich, he does make almost three times what I do. He also graduated from an Ivy League school and I've had to tell him several times that I don't understand a lot of what he's saying (sometimes it's computer jargon, sometimes it's politics, sometimes it's science). I dreaded meeting his family. He comes from a family of professors, lawyers, doctors, scientists, historians, etc. Each person he would tell me about in his family was just incredibly impressive.

But then I met his family and they are the most nicest people ever, just like him - down to earth, sweet, and sincerely welcoming.

We've been together almost eight months now, and although his intelligence blows mine out of the water, there are still things that I'm better at. Like I kick his ass in Words with Friends. And I can outrun him in a race. Regardless, it's not a competition. We get along and complement each other nicely. I used to feel that I wasn't smart enough for him. But he has never made me feel like I was less than. And I think that's what is important.
Nice to finally talk to someone who's so similar. My fear was millionaires, still kind of is. You're right, there are things I'm better at, and she's not once made me feel inferior. I've spoken to her family and they are very nice. That's not what I'm worried about however. I do think it's mainly jealousy that there are some people who can have whatever they feel like whenever they feel like, especially when they don't even need to work for it themselves, and just get it. And I'm talking 25k and 40k+ cars. Brand new, among other things. It's not all bad, I mean to be fair I do live in semi luxury, but it's when you come across people like that... You know?
