…ofessional older men who are single because they offer much, MUCH less than they expect from women. I’ve run into men who expect a nurturing maternal mate, while they do not reciprocate in kind. I find this to be especially true of financially independent men. It’s as if financially independe…
Thank you for the well wishes and Happy New Year to you as well. I think this point you bring up is huge. Many financially independent men lack the ability to nurture women in ways we need and desire, which leads to women in the lives of some of these types of men being transactional (i.e. I have a boat, my own home, retired, XXX…this is what I have to offer).
Like you I appreciate men who choose to stay single understanding they don’t really have much to offer. The problem is, maybe a guy is compassionate and self-sufficient, he just can’t provide a woman with a trip to Paris or a Coach bag which are deal breakers for many women.
Like many women, men have decided that being alone is more feasible. The bad part is that only introverts really want to be alone. I think as men have evolved, so have their appreciation for women and life.
I can’t agree with you more about shedding all the roles and responsibilities women must fulfill to accommodate men and a relationship. It feels good to worry only about yourself. Men probably should be alone more to experience how we feel inside of a relationship sometimes where there is no nurturing, only expectations.
