I am in need of some general advice and was hoping you could help.
I’ve been dating for about a year now and have found a recurring problem. Men in general are quite emasculated by my job. I work in the City and do make a decent wage for someone my age. I’m career driven and make no apology for that.
I can see guys physically sink in their seat when I tell them what I do. Even those who have good jobs themselves seem to find it a turn off, as if they’d prefer a girl who’s amazed by their career instead of having a good one of their own.
Do you think there’s a way I could overcome this?
Thank you for sharing this with me. Although, I have to say this is a fairly easy letter to answer, for a good reason.
Simply, you just have not met the right partner yet. Trust me when I say that there is someone out there who will be in awe of you and who will want to see you achieving so highly without finding your success threatening. This person will want to hold you on a pedestal no matter who you are or what you do.
Hold your head up high and be unapologetically proud of yourself. I saw a quote the other day on Instagram that said ‘if somebody makes you feel like too much, let them go and find less’.
I hope this help and well done for your achievements.
