Scared of dating guys
Let’s take a look at the many badass traits of independent women that make us so awesome and so intimidating. Independent women don’t need a man to provide for them, and men are used to being needed as providers.
When they meet a woman who put herself through college, makes her own money, pays her own bills, and smashes her own random apartment spiders, they sometimes take it the wrong way and feel emasculated.
In your twenties, especially in the years immediately after college, an age difference of just a year or two can make you feel like you're a world apart from someone.Sex comes with risks, and those risks are only worthwhile if you make it worth our while by at least putting in some serious effort into making us feel good (yes, we do give bonus points for effort).We already have a five, 10, and 15 year plan for our lives.When I met my boyfriend Jesse, I was 28 and he was 24 — not too much of a dating age difference in the grand scheme of things, but to hear some of my friends at the time tell it, you'd think we were Harold and Maude — or at the very least, Ashton and Demi.
In the early days of our relationship, I got a lot of a lot of exasperated eyerolls, "you go, girl"s, and questions about whether I was technically old enough to be a cougar.You have two options: accept us as we are or step aside so we can see who’s next in line.
