Today’s woman doesn’t need you. And while that might be a real shocker, trust me, this is a good thing.
It used to be that women, at least some women, looked for a man to take care of them, pay their bills and give them the lifestyle they wanted. The assumption was that the man took care of the woman and she kept the house clean and went shoe shopping. This isn’t the case any longer, and that’s a very good thing. Women today are much more independent.
Most are completely capable of fending for themselves in the big, bad world, so they don’t need you to pay their bills and look after them. The reason this is such a good thing is that most women you’ll run across in your dating endeavors are interested in finding love and partnership rather than status or a sugar daddy.
If you have money, that’s great, but she’s probably more interested in how that will help the two of you in your life partnership than in whether or not you’ll be giving her a yacht for her next birthday.
Many women today are perfectly capable of buying their own yachts, and even those who aren’t can handle themselves financially. This is the product of women waiting longer to think seriously about marriage.
They’re getting their educations out of the way and starting careers. They’re investing their money and have learned that they can handle things even if they don’t have a man to provide for them.
You’re likely to come across lots of women like this as you date. They’re not necessarily women’s libbers, but they have learned that they’re responsible for their own life successes and that they can provide for themselves.
They still want to form lasting, equitable and loving partnerships with great guys, but they aren’t looking for someone to save them. When you’re dating a woman like this, it’s pretty important to avoid taking a patronizing tone with them.
If you’re interested in being with a smart, savvy, self-confident woman who can handle her life and who is looking for a great partner to share life with, the women’s movement is definitely on your side.
In your dating endeavors, you’re likely to come across both types of women – the ones that need you and the one’s that don’t. Today’s woman is looking for love, not someone to provide for her. Because of this, you can have an increased level of confidence that she likes you for you – not your cash, your house, or the fact that you have a cool car.
So if you’re a nice guy who’s been worrying because you drive a clunker or your apartment is an efficiency, don’t let it cause too much anxiety. More often than not, she’s looking at what’s inside, not what you can provide.
