Do bossy women get married?

My friend Allen is dating a smart woman who runs her own company. Allen seems to be really impressed with her now but she told them if they met 5 years ago, he probably would have run for the hills.

She admitted that before they met, she was a real piece of work – very strong-willed, opinionated, and well bossy. She finally realized this was not serving her well on the dating scene. According to her, bossy women don’t get asked out – and few end up with the men they want.

Once she started to find a balance, she noticed a big difference in the type of men she met and attracted. This makes me think about the fine line single women often have to worry about: bossy versus confident. Men love confident women! A confident woman who is too bossy? Well, let’s just say some men view them as a challenge – others think of them as the type to avoid.

Ladies, have you found it difficult or challenging to project your confidence without appearing overconfident or bossy? Is it a good idea to to tone it down when you meet someone new? Would that be misleading?

Guys do you believe that some women can really be attractive while being confident and bossy? Do you think women should balance it more so they don’t send the wrong message?

Seriously, PR? Seems more like fiction/wishful thinking to me. Thus my Marc Cherry (creator of Desparate Housewives) reference.

Wondering why you would ask, Simp, but 400 or so….

ITL, On a little league team there are maybe 12 to 15 kids…Just trying to figure out why you would not think in a group of 15 or so parents, there would not be 6 or 7 that would be open for all kinds of after hours activities. Now in your office of 400, I would be willing to bet I could find EVERY Kind of Freak you could imagine…..

PR?

the question assumes I get to know at some point..

I would be mad,take it on the chin like a man and boss her out! It’s her prerogative to do as she pleases….

If it’s me and she finds out,I expect her to get mad but stay!

The bible,that most of these folks quote but selectively apply would provide an answer Sexxcool..

The bible has the original polygamists we emulate…

Abraham and all the legion of them..

Philandering wives were and are sti cast aside

Polygamy is holy!
