Men usually prefer dating with not so smart and successful women… Let’s assume dating dumb women is the best! I called a smattering of my male friends who explained why some men like dating girls who are less successful or intelligent than they are. Many men are intimidated by strong, successful women because males still think they need to be the head of the household. A lot of men feel a sense of competition with women who are in the workforce, even if they’re in different fields, working in different offices, doing different job duties. This can cause a rift in relationships, because relationships should be nurturing, and both partners should encourage each other in all aspects of life.
However, it has never been scientifically proven that men prefer beauty over brains. What we do know is that even the smartest women do some dumb things when it comes to love.
But guys here are some things to know before dating a successful woman in case you are hesitant to move on a date with her:
1.She is independent. Women who have their own career to focus on are independent in all aspects of their lives. They understand when you need to work overtime or, conversely, when you need time to yourself, or time with the guys. Successful women aren’t dependent on you, they don’t always need you around to entertain them or validate them. They have their own careers, their own money, their own friends, and they can manage it all on their own.
2.She will encourage you in your career. She want an equal partner. Because both of you are successful, driven, employed adults, you’ll need to split home chores evenly, so she will be able to help you out in that realm as well.
3.She will impress your friends & your boss. The stereotypical dream for guys is to have a wife who doubles as arm candy when you go out. This might impress superficial people, but imagine taking a gorgeous, shallow woman to a work event and introducing her to your boss. He asks her what she does and she can barely form a sentence. She can’t talk about current events over dinner. What if you could have a smart, successful woman, still attractive, of course…
4.She has real feelings for you. It is also good to know that she is with you because she wants to be, and not because she needs to be. This should make you feel good as a man since you know with certainty that you are not being used or taken advantage of.
5.She can support herself. You will be dating someone who is secure in herself and who is not relying on you to satisfy every single one of her needs.
