Women and The Fear of Settling Down

Men are not the only ones who are afraid of settling down, women are afraid of settling down too and for the same reasons as men. Contrary to popular opinion, women are not necessarily afraid of settling down because of some past hurt that was showered on them by some doggish-man. And the same goes for men. There are a lot of women who do not want to give up their single life and settle down with one man. Women hold on to their bachelorette-hood as tightly as men hold on to their bachelor-hood. Of course there are the men and women who happily step into marriage and domestic living with much gusto. OK, we ain’t talking about those. Happy for them though. There are women who love spending their money in any way they like without having to think of two people when they can be thinking about numero uno.

Maybe that woman have lived her life on her own terms and have gotten use to her life that she really doesn’t see the need to give up her single life when she has been wildly successful and happy living her own life. Now there is another reason. If that woman is a strong woman, there are men who are put off by strong women. They may feel intimidated by that woman and will seek a woman who is less intimidating. NEXT! That is what I say if a man feels intimidated by me and cannot step to me as a grown, mature man. Why would I want a man who cannot stand up to me, but folds or runs every time? Why would I want a man who wants his ego to be stroked just so he can feel like the man? Neither will I play the damsel in distress so that I come off more pleasing and submissive to a man.

There are so many women who have held down their household by themselves so they don’t have time to be …
