Does He know the difference? Do you?

I was reading an article about the differences between the concept of “girls vs women” when it comes to relationships. I wanted to laugh, but I am at work trying to look super busy on a rainy Friday.

To be honest I was not surprised by any of it, it does not read as though it is disrespectful or demeaning in anyway. I feel like when we are girls in a relationship we want certain things from our partners, we want more of this, more of that, just more. When we grow and live life a little bit we just want their time and live our own lives at the same time.

Women who truly know who they are, willing to admit when they fail at life, and take responsibility for it, yet still get up and face the day like a boss then she is worth making an investment in, right? Do men think they know what kind of woman they really want? However when they come face to face to a woman who knows who she is, what she’s about, and knows that she is not perfect in anyway what so ever they are actually intimidated and run away or call them some ridiculous name. They knew this woman was out there, but like Mr. Darcy says to Elizabeth, “Are you so severe on your own sex?” she looks at him and responds, “I’ve never seen such a woman, she would be a fearsome thing to behold.” end of conversation, mic drop Miss Elizabeth.

Do you agree with that? I try to think of myself as an independent woman. Yes, I am fully aware that I currently do not live alone. I will again eventually, but I don’t require a man to be with me 24/7, 365. I can handle being alone, and do things on my own. I do enjoy PDA , but not all the time. I am not afraid to take control in the bedroom, but at the same time I want him to take full charge and not be ashamed of it. I am always looking for ways to improve my life, but that does not mean I want to do this life alone either. I’d love to have the chance to come home at the end of the day to someone who is happy to see me, apart from an overweight cat.

How do you see yourself? Guys, would you even know the difference? I personally see myself as a grown woman who is always looking for ways to improve my life for myself. It may sound totally selfish, but who is going to judge me on that? I pay my bills, and I live off what little I have, and I don’t ask for a lot, just to live a little bit of life. I guess time will only tell if someone sees that in me.
