When I hang out downtown later in the evening after work I see all the girls I would've chased in my early '20s in hopes they'd talk to me fully aware they wouldn't because I didn't make enough money. Now I make the living they were hoping for and we still want nothing to do with each other. I just don't look like the dude they'd want.
I'm lucky I found a girl that likes me for who I was and appreciated that before I became the guy I am now.
It's a win-win situation all around!
