What a "whole" person consists of is the sum of their qualities. All the qualities are added up, even if not conciously.
I think that in reality some people's total sum as a whole person ads up to more than other people's total sum. Authors of various books would agree with me. We all have a value on the dating market.
Even if her and I were mono, I feel like I have a lower value than her, and therefore she is dating down, due to me having less of an education, and my humble career. The only thing that I can see that spans that gap is that I'm a bit younger, etc... This is probably at the root of me feeling inferior. The fact that boyfriend #2 exceeds me in many areas just adds to how I already feel.
