Why is it that successful women seem to not be able to stay in a healthy relationship? Sure this doesn’t include ALL successful women, however, with the recent news of J.Lo getting another divorce, it made me wonder. Halle Berry could be another example. Both women are extremely talented and not to mention gorgeous. It seems like men would be jumping through hoops to date these beautiful women, but they sure have had their share of men problems.
A survey from EHarmony.com was taken that explained some of the reasons men may feel “intimated” by a successful woman.
For one thing, men are misreading you: “A mistake that lots of men make is assuming that the same skills that have created success in their professional life translate to their romantic life. If a man too often “brings the office home” with him, it can have a negative impact on his love life. The same goes for you as a woman. If you’re busy, stressed out, and can’t get out of “work mode”… you likely won’t be communicating the soft, feminine woman inside you.”
It’s also about the attraction, not your success: “If you’re a successful woman, there’s something you need to know. Your career accomplishments aren’t all that a man is looking for. A guy doesn’t fall in love with an Ivy League degree, a six-figure income, and an impressive job title. He falls in love with a woman. Whether you downplay your success, or rely on it to draw men to you, the truth is that neither option will attract a man to you or make or break your relationship in the end.”
What do you think? Why does it seem as though successful women have a hard time finding and keeping a man?
