One of the perplexing things I’ve noticed about some men is their propensity to be drawn to challenging women. They are attracted by the ambitious, smart, driven and opinionated type. Once they are with her, it becomes apparent that she is a challenge for him. At some point, all these qualities can become the problem in the context of a relationship. Conversely, the powerful, confident and successful man poses the same conundrum.
Do we really want to be with someone who challenges us? I think we always hope that the person brings out the best in us, but that isn’t always the case. How do we know when being challenged by the person we are dating is a good thing or a bad thing?
