Now, when a smart, successful woman decides to share her life with a man (ie Oprah and Stedman) and not get married, she's questioned for it?

As for Madonna, I don't know much about her to be honest, I've never really liked her or her music. She seems like a user and abuser though, and while that may have some alpha female traits, being a ***** for the sake of being a ***** doesn't cut it in my book.

Funny how that double standard way of thinking works! Thanks so much for pointing it out.

Also, I find it funny that men start threads and respond and agree to threads, saying, "Don't get married! Stay away from women!", yet they're followed up with, "What do women want? We're never good enough. I can't get a DATE...or I can't a SECOND date!" I wonder how many single women read the threads on here and decide it's not worth it. If some of the posts on here are any indication of how the majority of men REALLY feel about women, it's no wonder women won't look twice at them...great looking and successful or NOT!

Let's face it, there is probably 1 out of 250 men on City Data who actually LIKE females, If a woman is hardworking and successful in her career, she's an "alpha female, blood sucking b*tch, who needs to be put in her place". If she's a stay at home wife/mother, "she's a worthless, lazy b*tch who does nothing all day, but lay on her a$$ and expect someone to kiss her a$$ and take care of her".

No wonder there are so many single, miserable, lonely men out there.

+1
I doubt a lot of people respect Madonna. I might have listened to her if channel surfing in a rental car.

Absolutely agreed. To me, it seems they just want a plaything they can have sex with who then goes home and sits around waiting for him to call her for more sexy time. Basically, a booty call that is completely committed to him, but without all the relationshippy stuff to go along with it.

It's frustrating, really... many of the men on CD are expecting so much out of women...they have to be a homemaker, plus work full time, plus be a porn star in bed, plus look like a lingerie model (any fat is icky ewwwwww) and stay fit, wear makeup without looking like she's wearing makeup, pay her own way and on top of all that, not want a commitment of any type from her man because that would be too 'clingy'. Add onto that no medical problems, scars or any type of large blemishes, or skin imperfections because that's just gross.

Many, just typing all that out made me tired and I'm not even looking for a relationship

Please, the reciprocal exists in women who are holding out. He's a "horndog, but not much else," or "he makes good money, but he's not attractive," or "he's attractive and makes good money, but I just don't feel any chemistry," or...

Let's face it. The good ones are off-the-shelf QUICK...and stay off-the-shelf. Within 5 to 6 years after college. That's what most everyone thinks. I was having lunch with a friend who was able to do better than the dysfunctional and calloused background he came from...his divorced parents sounded like lousy people. However, he told me that his Dad advised him to "look for a wife real hard in college, because it gets harder after that." He did, and wound up marrying a girl he met in college right after graduation. She is definitely attractive, feminine and mild-mannered, works part-time, though she's way too into the church thing and has gotten him into it.

Oh NO!! Way too into the church thing!!!!! As opposed to way too into the BAR thing!? Yeah...everything's perfect about her, except that she believes that there's someone far more powerful than herself. What horrid flaw!

No, babe, I go to church, too, and I'm a member of their religion as well. However, for her, it's fanatical and it's about something deeper that doesn't need to shared. Ok? Go chop some wood.

Not me ladies. I want the toughest one I can find. I like challenges and won't settle for a cream puff.

Default Alpha Female

How exactly would you describe an Alpha Female. Does that work in her favor in most aspects or do you think that is a double edge sword? Do most women hate those types?
