Re: Male egos, and strong, independant women...
Jeez, what about us men that want our egos stroked sincerely and honestly? I mean I'll do the same, sincerely and honestly. Honestly. I detest insincerity and dishonesty when it comes to women stroking my ego!

why do you need it though?


Because it's nice. The opposite is indifference, which is a killer to any relationship. Or dont you think?

I guess I see a difference between paying attention to a lover, and having havng to build up someone's fragile ego. Everyone should be responsible for their own self worth; their own self confidence. Men should not NEED their egos stroked. They should be doing that for themselves. Women can just give them a lover's attention which is extra. LIke gravy on top. Likewise, women should not look to men for validation, but appreciate the time spent with them.

Re: Male egos, and strong, independant women...
Why is it when men do it it's because of their 'ego'
But when a woman does it it makes them 'strong and independent'?


Do what?
 Quoting: Woodsprite


Oh come on.
If a man asserts his authority he has an ego problem (bad).
When women do the very same thing they are strong and independent(good).

Re: Male egos, and strong, independant women...
I read a very nice post by a male on here a bit ago, talking about Male Egos, and how women today don't 'stroke' it enough, therfore, men don't ask women out.

I felt the need to add a side bar to his thread, because while he may be speaking for some men, there are others that need to be adressed.

I'm talking about the men that get intimidated/jealous of a strong, independant woman.
I've had the problem with pretty much every man I've ever been with....no matter how much I 'stroke their ego" to make them feel good.
They just can't handle a woman that makes more money than they do...or is blessed with a gift that generates income without having to slave away at a job you hate.
My independance is threatning to them....because I do not 'need' them.

Personally, this bums me out to no end.......because when I'm in love with someone, I want to 'shine' for them...so they can be proud to be my partner...be able to tell their friends 'Yeah, that's MY GIRL!"
I know that personally, I'd much rather want to be in someone's life that 'wanted' me there, not because they 'needed" me to be there.

Are there no men out there that can appreciate a smart, talented , attractive, independant woman out there these days?

Why should we have to "pretend' that we 'need' you?
Why isn't it good enough that we love you , and want you in our lives?
Why do you get all threatened when we 'succeed', and are shining for you, so you will be proud to have us on your arm?!
Do you really want some woman that depends on you for EVERYTHING?
Emotional fulfilment, financial support, emotional support?
Seems to me it would get old pretty quick having to be EVERYTHING to another person, have them lean on you for it all.

Because of these things, is why I really don't date anymore.
I'm sick of having to fight to be me, to be 'allowed' to create...
Sick of men that get pissed off and leave because I made more money in 4 days, than they did in a month...
Sick of men that get all upset, because I don't need them in my life, I just 'want' them to be in it...

A woman's life does not have to revolve around a man, and I'm sick and tired of having to tip-toe around their so easily bruised egos.
Partnerships should be an equal exchange of love,respect, and support for one another...not some competition, or some deadly game of having to constantly prop up your partner's ego, or it all comes crashing down.
 Quoting: Woodsprite

I lost the best friend of my life in this manner and live with so much pain all I can do is work myself to death. If whatever power that is out there will get me to the plate one more time I would not make that mistake again. Success Money Power.........is nothing

They were both wrong, and I don't have any regrets about doing those things at all.

Both of those women were out of line, and consumed by rage.

I'd place money that I spent more time and effort to instill good values in my son that you ever have.

You have no regrets about doing something wrong?

And the women were consumed with rage, but you did the slapping?

See, this is where we will never agree...because I know what I did wasn't wrong.

God made man and woman different - not equal. And woman was designed to be a man's helpmate, support, and heart of his household. A man doesn't want to be with another "man" which is essentially what you are. If you haven't been able to figure that out, you will forever be chasing your tail in circles and will end up in a really unhappy marriage that ends in a divorce.

Birdie take that bible and wipe your ass with it. You are what is wrong in the world.

Woodspirit ill take you on. After spending 17 years with a woman who has blamed me for her own mis-givings i would welcome a partner in crime that did not need me but wanted me loved me for who I was and not what they wanted me to be. Wow I might actually be able to live my life and quit worrying about whether my e could pay her bills.

Lady you are a one in a million and any real man would love to have you as a best friend lover and confidant. Yes and i am older than 40 and less than 50. I used to make great money and was miserable now I make a decent living and have time to live.

Yes i am looking for someone like you might have found that needle in the haystack.

 Quoting: CaptBill



When I'm talking about "strong"...it dosen't really have anything to do with Authority.
I'm speaking about emotional strength...women that don't crumble if something goes wrong...don't feel like they have to have a man 'to make it all better' or 'handle the crisis', 'fix the problem'
Women that don't give up in the face of adversity....that aren't intimidated, even though the odds are stacked against them.
They may get knocked on their butt...but they don't sit there and cry about it, give up....they pick themslves up, and keep trying to accomplish whatever their goal is, or handle the crisis that has come their way
Maybe I should have made it 'strong willed' women in the thread title, because a lot of people are confusing it with power and control, authority issues.

There could be power dynamics in play if someone 'asserts his authority'. Being assertive is good. Asserting authority may not be good. You don't have to have control and authority over a situation. to be assertive.

But I have never given off an air of being 'unapproachable' when I was out to socialize.

Sick of men that get all upset, because I don't need them in my life, I just 'want' them to be in it...

A woman's life does not have to revolve around a man, and I'm sick and tired of having to tip-toe around their so easily bruised egos.
Partnerships should be an equal exchange of love,respect, and support for one another...not some competition, or some deadly game of having to constantly prop up your partner's ego, or it all comes crashing down.

Go crawl back into that festering womb from whence you were shat and keep your needless opinions away.

You really shouldn't speak so badly about my Mother though...she just died a year and a half ago asshole!

I missed this.

So, what exactly is your point then? WHAT is it you are looking for? If you don't WANT to find someone to spend the rest of your days on earth with someone who loves you and will take care of you when you're 80 and crapping in a diaper, then what are you doing? Just hoping to find a series of meaningless relationships until your looks run out??

Hate to break it to ya bebe, but it just doesn't work the way *you* want it to work because it just wasn't designed to.

God made man and woman different - not equal. And woman was designed to be a man's helpmate, support, and heart of his household. A man doesn't want to be with another "man" which is essentially what you are. If you haven't been able to figure that out, you will forever be chasing your tail in circles and will end up in a really unhappy marriage that ends in a divorce.


Sorry, but I believe that is utter Bullshit.
You sound like so many religious fanatics out there, like the ones that force women to cover their entire body, and walk 2 steps behind the man.
No, I won't end up that way...because I plan on never marrying again.


This has nothing to do with religion. This is the way we were MADE. It is called the natural law. Men and women were designed to interact in a specific way for very specific reasons. Call it something else if it makes you feel better. It's just the way it IS. The sooner you wrap your head around that, without feeling ANGRY about it and trying to FIGHT it, the sooner you will find a man to LOVE you.

I don't want a man that thinks men were created to tell women how to live, and what to do...so I'll happily be alone if it means i have to live with such opression..
Men and Women were created to love and help each other....the only thing that seperates us, is women were given the gift of being able to create life within our bodies.
You remind me of my son's Sperm Donor....he is Hispanic/Puertorican.
He also believed that 'the man makes all the decisions in the household, and the woman has to follow whatever he decides is best for her'.
I said fuck that a long time ago.
I don't believe it's right, and I never will!

Sadly, I am afraid woodsprite is not at all familiar with the natural law and natural order.

Woodsprite does know natural order maybe not what the christian philosophy says but she is deep, has a knowledge of the cosmic order of things, probaly a loner, scares men with her eroticism and so sexy that she makes men weak at the knees. They cant control her and they know it so they run not walk walk away. I would guess shes had a few gf's and is better looking than most.

Woodsprite dont worry sexy there is someone that you will met that is your equal. I would have to say someone who is caribean or a Northern Californian. My guess is you live in the south. To many many baptists down there for you. They have to much deep seated biases.

Tree Nymph have fun you will someone soon that you can dance with.

sevenmrelives

and as for the poster that responded to my live comfortable and have time. Your right I am not throwing it away. That why I am glad to have found an independent friend. And I mean independant in all forms. She even loves indy cars. yeah. six foot tall and has scared most men away.

Re: Male egos, and strong, independant women...
I'm Bisexual
Native Spiritual people call me 'Heyoka"....both sides equally developed, I walk backwards to bring balance to the circle.

After my first husband, I ended up with a 'wife', for 8 years.

3 years after the wife, I married my second husband.

I can fall in love with either sex...I don't just see the outer wrapper when it comes to people...what's inside is more important to me than their genetals.

Oh, good grief. I just saw this. I'm out. No need to waste my breath any further. Nevermind.

I'm just looking for a companion, someone to love, that's all.
I highly doubt that I'll ever find anyone compatable enough for me to want to spend the rest of my days with....because of the issues we've been talking about.

Hopefully, when I'm an old lady, and need help, my son will be there for me.......just like I'm here now, taking care of my 73 yr. old Dad.
Marriage dosen't mean that your partner is going to take care of you....they probably won't be in any better physical condition than you are.
Working in Nursing Homes, I've seen firsthand how spouses dump the other sicker one off in these places, and let them lay there day after day, and they die alone.

Pretty much.

Some 26-y-o handed me her number on a napkin last week.

It happens often enough that I think I can go another ten years or so and then keel over dead and happy.
