Some people opine that men are less attracted to a woman who is on an equal or higher level when it comes to matters of the pocketbook or education, and that a successful woman should dumb herself down to get a man.
My time in the world of dating and relationships, both personally (as a former serial dater) and professionally (as a columnist, host and now a dating coach), has taught me that these conclusions, for the most part, are fallacies, the aforementioned girl-power refrain a line women repeat when they don't want to tell each other or themselves to look inward or at their dating behaviors or their choices in men.
Second, we’re not talking about a man who’s turned off by a career-driven woman because she has made it clear that she doesn’t want a family.
We are talking about situations where men get around successful, assertive women and find that to be a net negative.
The female workforce has greatly evolved, achieving places of power and success.
Have you noticed the trend that many successful women have a lot of trouble when it comes to finding a husband?
Many try to enlist the help of a matchmaker to find them someone, but even then, they have trouble with the dates they are set up on.
They’ve been saying this to defend their bad behavior towards men in order to not take responsibility for their off-putting behavior.
Please remember that I am not categorizing all professional women, but particularly the ones who defend themselves with the belief in this stereotype about men.
