I'm about to graduate from college and extremely career driven. I don't care if I have to work 60 hours a week to be the best at what I do. I'm a true "type A" personality.

Type A is defined as : highly independent, take charge, decisive, direct, business-like, ambitious, efficient, motivated, persistent, focused, risk taking, practical solution oriented, dislike routine, high achieving, no-nonsense, multitasking, deadline driven and change oriented.

I'm also only attracted to men similar to me. I respect intelligent and savvy men. I'm generally attracted to type A men and men who even exhibit neurosis such as being high strung or a perfectionist.

But from the group of people I know, it seems like most of these men end up with women who have no ambition whatsoever and I wonder if they're attracted to that. They end up with administrative assistants, rich daddies girls who live off trust funds, social workers, nurses, teachers, ex-models, writers, women who went to college but never had careers, etc.

Are professional women in the corporate world not seen as feminine of sexy? In my free time, I dress very feminine and cocktail waitressed for 4 years while in college. When I was cocktailing, I felt like every type of man was attracted to me.

Now, working in a corporate firm doing serious work, I feel like a ghost. Is being a corporate worker and a driven woman unattractive and unfeminine?

I don't find women in the corporate world any different then men in the corporate world. I would not want to date either.

It's not the position, it's the person in the position. I prefer women who are unlike myself; quite frankly I look at myself everyday in the mirror and interact everyday in the business world with people who act like me. So I suppose the answer is a person will have personal affairs with people who either like them because they are the same as they are at work, or are different from the way they are at work.

I guess it all depends on who YOU want to socialize with, then find someone who thinks the same.

If she's attractive she'll be seen as attractive. It's that simple

So according to you administraive assistants, social workers, nurses, teachers and writers have no ambition?

Maybe your superior attitude is what they find unattractive

Yes. In my opinion. There's a lot more to life than work. I wouldn't be attracted to someone who worked 60 hours a week because I have more important things to do during that time that I'd like to do with my partner.

To be completely honest, yes. A lot (not all) of women who have fought their way up the corporate ladder have had to adopt some masculine traits to get there.

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

first of all, here is something you should already know-
most corporate employers, have "culture workshops" twice a year, and essentially, itt's a facilitator explaining sexual harrassment laws...and after she/he is finished....you realize if you look at a woman too long in the workplace it can be harrassment...so,,men have listened and learned, the workplace should not be the place to approach any supervisors or execs.
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
