Too Successful For A Mate
If you are new here, every Monday I blog about a money related topic. Nothing should be considered as financial advice, but for informational and discussion purposes only.
Is there a such thing as being too successful for a mate? In this case I’m talking about a successful woman.
Of course. women have no problem dating a successful man and when I say successful, I mean doing well financially.
“Typically” the man is thought of as the breadwinner or the financial provider in the relationship.
That’s not so much the case today, women have their “stuff” together. We are smart, driven, we have careers, we own homes, we’re educated and may not be financially dependent on a man.
However being successful and dating doesn’t always go together. Some men are intimated and insecure about a woman who has achieved a measure of success that out weighs his own. He may feel that if she has all these “things” then why is he needed.
I came across this quote from a guy on this topic and he said: I’m not intimidated by successful women, but I’m not exactly comfortable with them in the long-term, neither.
Is the thought of being too successful an “issue” that women create or is it time for the men to get over their insecurities and learn to embrace her success?
