In this day in age, it is the norm for a woman to be independent and able to hold her own. I speak from experience I have been independent for quite some time now. But sometimes I wonder is being too independent detrimental to your love life? I mean is the ability to do everything for yourself a predisposition for disaster when it comes to love. Let’s be realistic men love to feel wanted and needed. However when you are so used to making everything happen for yourself that you unknowingly don’t allow a man to be a man you’re possibly creating a barrier in your relationship.
A barrier where your man may not feel the need to step up and be the best man he can be for you because you don’t require him to. I mean why would he want to go out of his way to take out the trash when you will do it. Or you could possibly be intimidating him. A woman so accomplished and determined (I often find this to be my issue) it’s not like you mean to, but when you are so motivated and have everything you want what can that man do for you?Some men say they want an independent woman, which on paper looks amazing, but when they get in a relationship with an independent woman may be more of a challenge.
Of course, everyone’s love life is different some men may feel comfortable and OK with their woman being independent, embracing and encouraging independence. While other men may not feel as comfortable it all depends on the relationship, either way, people are able to adapt and make the changes necessary to make a relationship work. I believe Miss. Independent can want and need a man it just may not be in the traditional way.
