Dominant woman dating
But when these same qualities cross too far into the relationship, we don't like it. Men appreciate an accomplished, successful woman but don't want to have to come home to a stressful, competitive environment after spending all day in a similar type of work environment.
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.Most men don't care where a woman got her three degrees or that she's made partner at her law firm -- it's a nice bonus, and, understandably, a woman is proud of these achievements, but it's not what leads a man to be attracted to her. It could have nothing to do with her level of accomplishment (maybe she's a Ph. ) and more to do with that woman's easygoing nature and her ability to create a feeling of emotional safety and peace within a relationship. Joshua Pompey: I think you hit the nail on the head, Neely, in regards to accomplishments being "a nice bonus." Great accomplishments don't cause men to feel an attraction towards women.They will only have the potential to enhance that attraction if we already feel it. We strongly prefer to find partners who have more than high school degrees, have serious work ethics and have dreams of their own that they aspire to achieve.To unpack this issue a bit more, I decided to ask... As you say, women are more successful than ever, receiving higher levels of education, and the disparity between men and women in positions of power shrinks every year.But are men really intimidated by strong, smart and successful women?
