Written by – The man (who thinks) he knows what every woman really wants.
I have received interest from gentleman who claims to know what every women really wants and is going to be submitting a series of articles giving his male viewpoint. Considering most posts come from ladies, I have to say that I for one, am interested to get a male perspective.
Ladies – these are absolutely open for discussion. What do you think?
Post 1: The ‘Independant’ Woman
I have heard the phrase ‘I am an independent woman’ many times but is being an independent woman compatible with being ‘in a relationship’?
Definitions of being ‘independent’ are
* not being connected with another or with each other, seperate
* not being dependent on another for livelihood or subdisistence
* not dependent on something else for strength or effectiveness, free standing
When I hear the phrase ‘I am an independent woman’ only makes me think there are immediate barriers to a full and proper long and committed relationship, it’s an arms length relationship they want because they want ‘independence’.
This does not mean each person in a relationship cannot have a degree of independence in day to day life but if two people choose to spend their lives living together married or not, then they become one, each supporting the other and each accepting the support of the other in whatever capacity that may be, not independent of one another.
