Why Dating a Successful Woman is Important to Your Success

Why Dating a Successful Woman is Important to Your Success

Many men are intimidated by strong, successful women because males still think they need to be the head of the household. A lot of men feel a sense of competition with women who are in the workforce, even if they’re in different fields, working in different offices, doing different job duties. This can cause a rift in relationships, because relationships should be nurturing, and both partners should encourage each other in all aspects of life. So guys, instead of being intimidated by successful women, check out these reasons why dating a successful woman is important to your success.

1. She is independent.

Women who have their own career to focus on are independent in all aspects of their lives. They understand when you need to work overtime or, conversely, when you need time to yourself, or time with the guys. Successful women aren’t dependent on you, they don’t always need you around to entertain them or validate them. They have their own careers, their own money, their own friends, and they can manage it all on their own. This makes things even better when you come back together and have that much more to talk about and share.

2. She can help you make strides in life.

Successful women are eager to move their own lives and careers forward, and they will do the same for you. They’re intent on doing the best the can in every aspect, and they’ll want that same thing for their partner. Smart women can help you brainstorm for work projects and keep you on deadlines. They’ll encourage you in your career because they want an equal partner, but this also transfers to home life. Because both of you are successful, driven, employed adults, you’ll need to split home chores evenly, so she will be able to help you out in that realm as well.

3. She can impress your boss.

The stereotypical dream for guys is to have a wife who doubles as arm candy when you go out. This might impress superficial people, but imagine taking a gorgeous, shallow woman to a work event and introducing her to your boss. He asks her what she does and she can barely form a sentence. She can’t talk about current events over dinner. What if you could have a smart, successful woman, still attractive, of course! (Talk about stereotypes – smart women can and are still beautiful! You don’t have to sacrifice beauty for brains.) Not only is she arm candy, but she’ll impress your boss with her knowledge and personal success, and she’ll be able to talk to your boss’ spouse and help forge a more personal relationship, which will only make you look more appealing and interesting to your boss and coworkers.

4. You will have more money as a couple.

What’s not to love about dual incomes? A successful woman cares about her job and makes sure she’s getting paid what she’s worth, and will more than likely request raises when she feels it’s time. This means you don’t have to worry about supporting the entire household by yourself. You’ll be able to live on one check for a month, and the other income can be for fun, travel, dinners out, and more! Conversely, you can save more and build a dream house or retire early and see the world.

5. She will appreciate the small things.

Successful women often have to deal with a lot of crap at work. They have a lot of responsibility and work really hard at their duties, so they might be more stressed when they’re home. This means they’ll appreciate the small things you do that much more. Imagine how relieved she’d feel when she comes home and sees dinner on the table, or when you offer to do the dishes before bed! Instead of expecting you to give her the world, a successful woman knows she can provide all of that stuff for herself – so the little things are going to stand out so much more. Be considerate and think of what you can do to make her life a little easier, and you’ll reap the rewards in terms of her love and happiness.

6. She will help your ego.

Who doesn’t like to brag about their partner! Instead of floundering when someone asks what your other half does, you’ll be able to brag about her job position and how many sales she made last month, or how she’s started changing the company – or started her own company! Instead of having to say your wife spent the day getting a manicure or cleaning up the kids’ rooms, you get to say that your partner accomplished something major at work or closed a big deal. Your partner’s accomplishments will make you look and feel even better because you’re paired with such an amazing person.

7. She will be successful in many different ways.

A woman doesn’t have to just be successful in her career. If she works hard in the office, you can rest assured that she will work that hard at home, too. She’ll be a great wife because she’ll tackle home chores just as she does work duties. She’ll be a great mother because she’ll raise the children to be successful, just like the two of you are. She’ll be great at managing a social life on top of everything because that’s who she is! She’s successful and driven and worth it!

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

Relationships are complicated and when you’re unhappy, it can be difficult to tell what’s causing it and what needs to change.

Sometimes it’s as easy as opening up to your partner about your problems, while other times it may be necessary to switch partners or roll solo to get your mind straight.

When you’re in the thick of things, it can be difficult to tell if you’re unhappy in your relationship or just unhappy in general (in which case, a relationship may be just the cure you need).

Here’re signs of an unhappy relationship that is possibly making you feel stuck:

1. You’re depressed about your home life.

No matter what you do in life, you’re going to have good and bad days. Your relationship is no different.

However, no matter what you’re going through at home, you have to feel comfortable in your own home.

If you constantly dread going home because your significant other is there, there’s a problem. Maybe it’s something you already know about, everyone has an argument or just needs some alone time.

When that yearning to be alone becomes an insatiable obsession over the course of months and years, it’s time to realize you’re not the exception to the rule.

You’re unhappy in your relationship, and you need to take a look in the mirror and do whatever it takes to make yourself smile.

2. You aren’t comfortable being yourself.

Remember all those things you discovered about yourself when you first got together? The way your partner made you feel when you met that made you fall in love with him or her in the first place.

If they don’t make you feel that way anymore, it’s not the end of the world. If your partner makes you uncomfortable about being you, then her or she is only dragging you down. It’s up to you to decide how to handle that.

You need to be comfortable with who you are. This means being comfortable in your skin and with the way you walk, talk, look, breath, move, and all the other things that make you uniquely you.

If the person who supposedly loves you doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, know that you can do better. They’re not even one in a billion.

3. You can’t stop snooping.

Mutual trust is necessary in any relationship. The only way to get that trust is with respect.

I can find you anywhere online, no matter how private and secure you think you are. The odds of you having a password I can’t crack are slim. If we’ve met in person, I could install a remote key logger on your device without even touching it.

Finding your information online hardly takes a clandestine organization. Any idiot with a Wi-Fi-enabled device can cyberstalk you. I’m just the only idiot in the village admitting it.

So now that we know everyone snoops, it’s time to address your personal habits. Governments snoop because they don’t trust us. If you’re snooping on your partner, it’s because you don’t trust them.

It’s ok to have doubts, and it’s perfectly normal to look into anything that looks weird, but keep in mind that data collection is only half of an investigation.

If you find yourself constantly snooping and questioning everything, clearly there’s a trust issue and the relationship likely needs to end.

4. You’re afraid of commitment.

If you’ve been dating longer than a year and you aren’t engaged, it’s never going to happen.

Commitment is important. People will come up with a million ways to describe why they can’t be committed.

No matter who you are if you like it, you need to put a ring on it. Find an engagement ring, stick a gemstone in it and marry the person. If you’re not legally able to get married or you don’t believe in it for one reason or another, have a child (or adopt one, however you’re able to) or treat your partner’s family like your own. It’s a huge financial and mental commitment.

If you’re not ready for one or the other after some time, don’t waste anymore of your precious life on the relationship.

Your relationship should be something that propels you forward. If it’s not going anywhere, make it an open relationship and call it what it is—dating multiple people.

5. You imagine a happier life without your partner.

If all you’re doing is imagining a happier life without your partner, it’s a sign that you’re in the wrong relationship. You’re unhappy and you need to get out.

Your partner should be included in your dreams. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a future with someone.

Try to remember what you dreamed of before you got your heart broken by the realities of life, love and the pursuit of human success.

Remember when you would crush on that cute kid in class? You would secretly imagine marrying him or her and going on an adventure—that’s the way life should be.

If you’re not at least imagining adventures together, then why are you in that relationship?

6. You resent, rather than love your partner.

When a relationship starts to crumble, you begin to resent your partner for all the things you once loved about him or her.

When you’ve reached this point, your partner has reached at least No. 2 on this list. From your partner’s perspective, your unhappiness with them is picked up as bashing them for being who they are.

If you’re both unhappy in the relationship, it’s better if it ends as quickly and painlessly as possible.

7. You chase past feelings.

It’s okay to reminisce about the past, but if all you do is wish things were like they used to be, it’s a sign you’re not on the right path.

You’re unhappy and, at the very least, you need to have an open dialogue about it. This isn’t necessarily a sign that the relationship should end, but it definitely needs a spark.

When you talk to your partner candidly about what it is you’re looking for, you never know how they’ll react. The risk alone is worth it, good or bad.

Final thoughts

If you’re feeling stuck in your current relationship, it’s time to reflect about it with your partner. Don’t ignore these signs of an unhappy relationship as they will slowly go worse and harm both you and your partner in long-term.
