So what is successful to you? Beauty, sexual experience, fitness, confidence? Because when I first opened this thread the picture I had in my mind was a woman who made it in the corporate world and had a corner office with a view. I think most men would be happy to go for a girl like you described.

And if she is what you are thinking, she dumped you...so who is struggling???

having so-and-so degree, making $X per year, owning a house, being "well-off", those are achievements. I believe that some men are threatened by them, but for most men they are neutral qualities. when you start talking about very high-achieving women, though, there's more risk of intimidating men with those achievements, and an aggressive (negative) attitude is often a package deal with a high-achieving woman.
This guy understands women. (I'm assuming you are a guy)

(the way she looked at me and her tone of voice its was a clear sex invitation) + (I made her laugh for two hours) And I showed how to dance salsa to a co-worker of my cousin who is also around that age - She was with a guy and she preferred my company to the guy (older than me) she brought to accompany her. All these things during 2 different parties. My cousin is a Single Mom and has 3 daughters.
So, two people that know cousins of yours are some how representative of women at large? I suppose you would think so, given that you don't know any better. But...ahhh, she works at a bank lol.

Boyfriend no boyfriend I get the girl.

I grew up around adults pal. If you don't know what success mean you should go back to school.
Well, I have my opinions of what I consider successful in a rainbow of arenas; from professional, academic, artistic to lifestyle success. You toting that you have a mommy, daddy, and a cousin, doesn't really give much of a clue as to what you consider a successful woman.

Might be a good question for a different thread.

Hmmm... what do you consider to be a successful woman? Have not put much thought into it. But I would hazard to say that it takes a older gal that looks back on her life and was mostly comfortable with her life choices. Whether that was making it to the top of a Corporation or being a stay at home mom that raised some really great kids (or perhaps a combination of both?). The saying used to be, "Behind every successful man is a good woman pushing him".

Perhaps behind every successful woman is a good man as well.

Oh well enough musing.

I think successful women struggle because they're used to having power in their careers but being that they don't have a "peepee" it doesn't translate to the bedroom. So they feel awkward, juggling their roles. The same can be true for unsuccessful men and successful women. Just look at Jessie James and Sandra Bullock...he couldn't handle her success and he, therefore, sabotaged their relationship.

Well, given that the thread title includes "successful woman", it's a reasonable inquiry to make sure the OP and his readers are on the same page, imo.

I pretty much agree, tho, outside mommy, these women aren't usually hanging out with post teens.
