Should a woman have her own interests or should she only be interested in food and cooking? Should she only be interested in the home?
What does anyone think about this? Please share your thoughts ladies and gentlemen. Are men in favor of a woman who has outside interests and wants to pursue those interests?

Are men happy when they meet a woman who has hobbies and interests or do they automatically think of redirecting her attention to him in every way? be honest...

A fine fellow here mentioned that when he heard the word independence from a woman, it had a meaning that struck a chord with him due to his experiences.

Please share and comment.. THANK YOU!!!

I don't know where to begin on a response to the post. I'm assuming maybe this question is a joke?

Hi Marian! wave

OMG... I can't help but respond to this. If a man wants a woman who has no interests outside of food and cooking, then I think that he should spend his time watching Little House on the Prairie reruns...or go to Home Depot's garden department and purchase a clinging vine. Otherwise, any real woman who fits that description sounds pretty flat and one dimensional. That doesn't sound like much of a partner/spouse to me! smile

I dunno. I thought the whole point of getting into a relationship with someone was to become a part of that other person's life while making that person a part of yours, with the intent of potentially creating a life together. I always thought a couple should take part in each others' individual interests and create something new together.


Then again, maybe I'm completely wrong. At least that's what this fella seems to be implying.


I'll put it this way: A man who looks for a woman with either no interests of her own, or one who is willing to give up her interests from the minute he walks into her life isn't looking for a relationship or a girlfriend... he's looking to be catered to and for a personal servant to accommodate him. He's not looking to be a part of her life, he's looking to take over her life.


And that's only where it begins in many cases. Eventually, that type of control ends-up dictating her relationships with her family and friends, if she's even fortunate enough to be allowed to maintain them at all.


I could go on and on, but these subjects aggravate me, and I think I've gotten my point across.

I think a lot of men and women misinterpret the term "independence." I think a good number of men have a huge aversion to the word because they have a great desire to be needed by a woman. An "independent woman" makes him feel unnecessary, useless, inferior, and not worth value in her life. And women are often misguided. The better value to embrace is interdependence. "I need/ want you. You need/want me."

Man wants significance in her life. Woman wants to not lose sense of herself in him.

I know it seems like a joke but it is based on a very real concern arising out of some emails. I may explain more later...?

But relationship is built on share experiences first. So that sharing those experiences makes two people want to get closer and share more time dreams etc..
