Shy's question about intelligence makes me wonder about career-oriented & successful women. Do you think being successful works against us?
I'm finding that not many men are "supportive" of my recent achievements. If fact, I have been "dumped" recently b/c of it (two dates, nothing major)...And yesterday one of my guy friends was like "you working tomm? oh yeah! thats right, you are ALWAYS working..." in a really negative, sarcastic way that I didn't like.
You can't please men! Before I didn't make enough $ for them...now that I am making decent $, I am working too much or too hard! I feel like there is no winning here...
Course I may not have to worry about it b/c I have no time for dating. I just cancelled tomm night with someone b/c I have to work...and he's like, "call me later and we can meet for coffee tonight!"...and then said he had to go quickly...but I have class tonight...maybe I should miss class...I dunno...I'm sure he'll lose interest if I call him later & tell him I can't meet him tonight either...sigh. stress.
