Do men like confidence?

While I was in DC this weekend, I hung out on U street a couple of nights. I noticed that a lot of women in DC seemed confident, chic, and polished. Not unlike the women I know and meet in Atlanta, but definitely confident. It is one of the things I think men are impressed by. Of course when the confidence crosses into arrogance, it could become a turn off.

My friend Brian once told me that when a woman tries to appear confident a lot of times, it comes across as bragging. When she starts talking about her degrees, wealth, or accomplishments, he starts to wonder who she is trying to convince.

I think that men do the same thing, but when a woman attempts to be overly confident, it is not received the same way. Most men don’t even care about the number of degrees or the number of zeros in her bank account.

Do you think that men like confident women? Isn’t it a good thing to be happy with who you are?

What do you think the difference is between confidence and arrogance?

…and for the record, Leggs, I don’t get along that well with my Mama, lol. So I doubt it is Mama love I’m looking for. Or maybe it is…I knew, something was wrong when I discovered I wasn’t breastfed as a baby.

Nahhhh Celisea, I’m more like that Greyhound that fades on the third turn after leading by two links from the time the chutes opened and the dude on the mike says, “here comes Rusty”.

@ Leggs…I took a psych profile (okay on multiple occasions), and one of them said that I was a “Ready, Fire, Aim” type. I like that “shoot from the hip” in you…can identify.

I’ve been trying to change my shoot from the hip demeanor.

Me,too but I’m still a work in progress…when I was younger I was a sharp tongued, short tempered woman…. What’s worse is when people tell me these stories of how I’ve let someone have it back in the day and sometimes I remember and sometimes I don’t…that’s how often it happened.

Okay now I’m owt…be safe on the wet roads!!

Yep, we’re seeing eye to eye :)

Yes today was fun. Trolls roaming past their alloted “roam time”, temper tantrums, small display of manty-ism, virginal eyes/ears, but all and all A PRETTY GOOD BLOG DAY :)

Night folks

Oh, and all of what Sassy said at 4:49…I’m a work in progress too. My kid tells me mama you’re too direct with it sometimes. Most times nothing ill intended behind it….just saying what I think.

@SassyMe ~ I’m the same way. Two of my friends love reminding me of how I read some guy or put someone in their place…that was yesteryear. I’m a finely polished diamond in the rough (lol).
