I was just thinking of the term "Independent" today and wondering is that why I am still single... The longer I have been single the more independent I have become. It was not by choice but out of necessity to make it on my own. I do think it may be to my detriment in a way because a man and woman are meant to Compliment one another. I still pray for God for the right man to come into my life so we can both compliment one another and help each other on our journey in life. He doesn't have to do like all the hobbies I do but his Catholic Faith should be strong. We are here to help each other get to heaven and help others along the way.
That's just some of my thoughts. Hope that helps a little Kathleen
Well, we should be able to bring those strengths and skills gained in this time alone into a healthy, carefully crafted relationship, and these skills are good to have. In my opinion this is just something women have to deal with today. You have not done anything wrong. How could it possibly be wrong?
Are we not supposed to work on ourselves while we hope to also meet someone?
What would be wrong with it?
I don't think being dependent is completely attractive to men today, either.
Just ask men who answered that "a woman should pay her own way on the date" because it helps to create balance and maintain it- on my interview in my profile here, why they said that.
