There is not, by any means, anything wrong with being invested in a partnership or enthralled by the idea of intimacy, romance and the future. Rather, I seek to discuss the decidedly independent breed of women, who may have a different approach to dating.
In current society, many women embrace their individualism, and gender roles aren’t such black-and-white matters.
Although certain imbalances and deep-rooted sexist undertones still exist, the playing field is definitely more evenly balance than before. Yet, I have noticed that some men are confused — and occasionally insulted or intimidated — by the whole idea.
Independence shouldn’t make a man feel nervous or any less masculine; a woman’s strength is not a threat to a man’s masculinity.
Furthermore, the need for independence doesn’t rely on solidarity because it is not a matter of isolation; it is a state of being.
