I dunno if putting it like that to a woman is such a good thing.

She might start walking around nude causing all sorts of car accidents.

Hi Goodpasture,

What exactly is an independent woman anyway? Any woman in a state that broke away from the colonial empires?

Yup, thats what it is. I loves me them colonial girls.

I think what goodpasture is getting at is an independent woman is someone who can actually live and survive on her own without needing a man to do everything for her.

Now I do like to do things for my wife, however she is independent and doesn't ask me to do every single thing in the book. I prefer it that way because if I ever get sick (like I did last year with the flu) I need someone to take on all the things I do (cooking, cleaning, laundry, getting my medication, etc....).

I had the same problem except that i'm not smart, i'm not funny, I don't work out and I certainly don't have a great body. I had the "nice guy" syndrome. However, I gave up looking and then a few months later, I met my wife.
Shoot! I'm so ugly I have to only date blind women!!

Yeah, I thought my wife was independent, but it turns out that she's still a subject of the Portuguese empire...

You can imagine my disappointment.

I depend on my wife a lot. I suppose she also depends on me. Seems to work out.

I doubt there is a shortage of men who want that.

I'm not perfect I know that...but where in my self-description is something that someone would find unattractive about wanting to date me?

I have worked hard and accomplished so much, but I find myself never good enough for any man.

Sorry...I don't really get it. Do men just want to date and marry bitchy ditzy bimbos with no money?
Have you actually ASKED someone if they'd like to date you?

There's no way you could be uglier than me.

Regarding independance...

I find a lot of women want someone to 'take care of them' and provide for them...and a lot of men are completely fine with that! I want someone to love me...I don't want or need him to provide financially for me or cook and clean and crap. I'm not some helpless woman!

I just want someone to watch TV with and unwind with at the day. Is that so hard?
