With ambition comes an acquired appreciation for time.We carefully allocate the time we have each day to the things that are most important to us — whether it's a career, hobbies or otherwise. In the pursuit to find someone who dedicates his or her time to many things before romance, the time he or she does spend with you is then inspired by a genuine interest.
Some of us may revel in the idea of a relationship and in the possibility of experiencing “forever” with someone.
However, there are also some of us who revel in the idea of being independent more.
For us, the latter group, it's not necessarily about the comfort we take in being with someone else, but in the comfort we feel in being confident, content and capable — alone or not.
Furthermore, the need for independence doesn’t rely on solidarity because it is not a matter of isolation; it is a state of being.
It is important to understand that a desire for independence doesn’t cease to exist when we choose to be with someone; in fact, it shouldn’t really change at all.
Independent individuals are not a feat to be “conquered.” We give and we will take, but we still need to be our own.It seems that a sense of independence and level of ambition go hand in hand.There is not, by any means, anything wrong with being invested in a partnership or enthralled by the idea of intimacy, romance and the future. Rather, I seek to discuss the decidedly independent breed of women, who may have a different approach to dating.In current society, many women embrace their individualism, and gender roles aren't such black-and-white matters.Although certain imbalances and deep-rooted sexist undertones still exist, the playing field is definitely more evenly balance than before. Yet, I have noticed that some men are confused — and occasionally insulted or intimidated — by the whole idea.Independence shouldn’t make a man feel nervous or any less masculine; a woman's strength is not a threat to a man's masculinity.
