Independent women are stereotyped as being failures in relationships because their career, financial status or academic accomplishments makes them unapproachable to members of the opposite sex. They are seen as being aloof, egotistical and detached concerning matters of the heart.
This mindset is wrong, as there is no basis for women to be treated with disdain for being independent and well-off from the sweat off their back. So, I ask, does her ‘apparent’ success make her unlovable?
Not every woman was born with a silver spoon stuck in her mouth; some had to work their butts off to earn an income that allows them live within a certain level of comfort.
Yet, despite her efforts, she’ll still get belittled, ridiculed, criticized and stereotyped by some for being able to afford basic things, and catering to her own needs. She’ll get judged for flaunting her wealth. Judged for spending frugally. She’ll get judged period!
Independent women do not need to be stereotyped by people intimidated by her status; or taken advantage of by men who like their women dependent and clingy. She doesn’t need to act poor to find love.
The focus should be on her strengths, rather than on the amount of cash at her disposal.
