The real successful women never forget they are feminine no matter how much the alpha male tries to beats them down.

Meet men outside of work. My personal rule has always been "Don't **** where you eat." I have strong relationships with my male colleagues and occasionally socialize with them outside of work. But they are not romantic prospects and I have never treated them as such. Their wives and girlfriends if they are not single invariably like me and trust me.

I am respected in my field, but I do not date in my field. It just seems like a recipe for disaster.

I was thinking the same thing. How arrogant and self important must someone be to think this? Ugly attitude OP.

Maybe you're ugly and the men don't find you attractive?

I am hot in a pencil skirt. But then, in my profession, we wear jeans.

No. I worded that poorly if thats how it came across.

What I meant to say is you generally don't find Type A personalities in those positions. Even one of my professors did a quiz of the class and found that nearly every type A was some sort of business major such as finance, business management, accounting, or IT.

I would not date you.

1. There is more to life than work.
2. I don't care for corporate culture.
3. You sound bitter, and judgmental if you are looking down your nose at social workers, teachers and nurses.
4. I also have no desire to be with an over-the-top type A personality.

And by the way, any woman who says that "we can have it all" is lying to you.

You are a woman right?

also, i find this an odd question...
most woman in the workplace want to be judged on there merits,,not being an object- the worst thing a guy can do is compliment her on her looks as an exec.

you keep all this separate from work-you want to be a professional,,then be professional
I understand that. I'm not talking about being attractive to co-workers, but outside of work. Is it a turn off for a man to ask a woman what she does for work and for her to respond:

"Financial Analyst"
"Auditor"
"Financial Sales"
"Accountant"



etc. These are traditionally male positions that are now 50% taken by young women.


Do most men have a preference for women with traditionally female dominated jobs such as

teacher
nursing
waitress

etc.
