I am not talking about egostistical hardheaded women who think they know it all and everybody else knows nothing. There is a big difference between women who think for themselves and those who think that only their own opinions count.
So true. Well said. The same can be said about men.

You know what is truly disgusting from all these “successful, strong women” commenting?

How absolutely sexiest they are toward woman who aren’t as “successful, ambitious, or strong.”

So your degree and career make you women more deserving of love than lowly women?

Men don’t want to date you because you are ugly on the inside.

A teacher or secretary with a sunny disposition beats these career women any day.

Check you arrogance. It makes you very off-putting and repulsive.

Way to throw women with less ambition, less career success, less forwardness under the bus! But you’d rather be single than compromise … your dream came true!

Because the hair dressers, teachers, secretaries, waitresses I know are happily married with loving families. But hey, you career and strong women have your toys and careers!

Yay! You must be so happy!!

I don’t think most men have a problem with successful women, it’s that many successful women forgot how to be soft, and men want soft.

Like the Stevie Nicks song says,“Give to me your leather, take from me my lace.”

Also, men do want to be a leader for their woman. Is it really that hard to let him?

It doesn’t mean you have to act dumb, or incapable....... Just let him lead....so easy !

Wow! Way to assume facts NOT in evidence. Nowhere in the title of this thread does it mention women who have a career or are ambitious. Possibly a course in reading comprehension would stand you in good stead.

Susan, that is the very reason I have introduced it here as a discussion.....it's called "my perogative."

However, it is possible that a course in manners as your comprehension would stand you in much better stead.

Umm, name calling does not make for a discussion. Nor is it your anything much less prerogative to be uncivil whether or not you started this thread. You obviously have an agenda. And you'd better figure that out.

Have a nice day.

Pardon me , kindly point out where I've called you any name here, or where you consider that I've been uncivil to you in anyway ?

I have figured out long time ago that whoever you are in life, we all have an agenda......thank you for reminding me.

NB:- Civility is not not saying negative or harsh things. It is not the absence of critical analysis. It is the manner in which we are sharing this territorial freedom of opinion in discussion. If our discourse is yelled and screamed and interrupted and patronized, that's uncivil.

Just wondering... do men like strong , opinionted women who stay true to their beliefs?, see i am strong and opinionated on certian things, like i need respect, that's all i ask for, i love with all my heart, but there's a fire inside me, i can be a fighter and i stand up for what i believe in, and i stand up for the innocent and the people who can't stand up for themselves
Example: i see someone being mean to someone else for no reason, i stand up for them.
Example: a man says a womans' place is in the kitchen or you can't do that your just a woman, now make me a sandwhich woman
Me: nope i can be anything i wanna be; and only if you say please :)
I mean i like making whoever i'm with happy but i will not be pushed around or treated badly and stay, i have self respect and know what i deserve.

To have an opinion is a very powerful concept. every person has at least one toward a subject they feel strongly about.

To have an opinion is not a negative. however, I do not regret to inform you that it's unnecessary to have an abundance of them.

To have an opinion is very influential. at least we all make it seem as such.

To have an opinion isn't as meaningful as we lead it on to be. we are told to choose our battles wisely. treat your opinions likewise.....

Opinions are an opiate onion:...they sting they burn but they taste oh so delicious on your tongue

Thoughts echo in actions
Each having their consequences
Positive actions disseminate gracefully
Creating a lasting bond with the soul
Pass on your thoughts to beautiful minds
Positive actions can build stronger bonds.....

Every action has its consequences
Bound to a fate of its own
We choose an action by choice
Informed or under compulsions
Wound in a complex circle
Once we knock the door with uncertainty
Fate is there watching over us
Given the task to execute the action
Awaiting the consequences as remuneration

You've already said enough, and along with you, I have no idea what you're talking about in your attempt to implicate me by false accusations; involving your slander and in any questionable behaviour, typically involving sexual impropriety

TEN WORDS WOMEN USE




(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

&#8203;(Remember&#8203 ; boys - when they say "I'll be ready in five minutes" that's exactly the same amount of time when we say "I'll be home in five minutes"


(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement of ten misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing.(Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome.(I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot'- that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome'. that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!


(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

&#8203;(10)&#8203; We have to talk: That means - Sit down, shut up and listen. Open your trap and you're dead-meat.

Also, when a woman asks your advice - similarly, that means sit down, shut up and listen - don't give any advice at all.

...as long as their beliefs are to listen and abide by what their husband wants, then I have no problem with women being strong and opinionated.

I'm all for it!!!!
