Fear or feel intimidated! And so, prefer to stay around to give such women who threaten their virility! Most men seeking a woman inferior or at least their equal. Why so? They are afraid of the woman who is independent, ambitious woman, smart, beautiful, striving to achieve her goals. This they said, many men, men who dared to recognize why they are afraid to "own" such a woman. Fear of dominance, is afraid of being left alone and not look ridiculous even to such a woman. The question is that .... if you live in an era full of men leave also not have the courage to conquer a woman like that will make strong women? Where longer a partner they choose in life, if all that is offered is a handful of people who tremble at the idea of ??a challenge? Most powerful women living alone. Why? Because men are terrified that whatever happens, she goes on! Although most said that they would like to have such women around them, do not last more than a few months to say they would not face such a "tornado". For yes, this is a strong woman: a storm that bends all found in the way!

Here is the same. A man wants a beautiful and gentle wife, but he does not like his wife earn more than him, or have a higher degree than him. He wants his wife do all the housework and obey him all the time. I think for many of the men here, they want a slave not a wife. They do not have the ability to respect women and lead a health life.

Image of women has a long history. Every century and sometimes even every decade launches pattern of a woman walking pattern that fits in time. Antiquity prototype launched woman can rule the world: Cleopatra. In the Middle Ages, she was tempted, the main culprit for the fall of man, the witch. With the passage of time, she caught and sentenced to burning at the stake, trinket royal court. Gradually, sedentary status was changed to that of revolutionary. Thus came the first woman doctor, scientist or the first woman to vote. From this perspective, the twentieth century has seen an exciting development. She was the twentieth century: femme fatale, Marlene Dietrich after printing, good woman of the 50, concerned with home, family and new inventions in the field kitchen, woman 70s promoter of freedoms of any kind, and the woman career, whose age lies today. The Bible is trying to promote a different woman. Great woman, who is hiding behind every strong man. We got used to the old woman labeled as one who knows not only the house and children. But going beyond the veil covering her face, which I knead dough with one hand and the child that it swings the other or that we keep a vigilant eye through gaps tent, also invented strong-willed woman . A woman who knows what he wants and fight for it. A woman can change the world and who knows always come out in some way from the crowd. Thanks for response.

Yes, and too bad for them. Too bad they can not see beyond their fears that regardless how independent a person is or how strong minded they are and even for that matter regardless of whether being a woman or a man that every person does have common characteristics. We are human and we all need companionship or cry in our lonely desperation.

In fact, men are afraid of ... any woman! Just as long as the us, women we are afraid of men! We are not equal, than in terms of rights. Otherwise, we are complementary. One without the other we are unfulfilled! Thanks for response.

While I agree with you on the point that men, well I will say some men are afraid of a strong independent woman. Not all men are afraid. Take me for instance, I am not afraid of any woman. There is no use to be afraid. It gets you nowhere. Now, the men that are afraid of strong women are those stupid macho "I'm a man" kind of guy. They truly are insecure with themselves. But it takes a real man to accept a woman for what she is. And of that woman is strong, independent and has a mind of her own, then so be it. Embrace it. If she truly loves you, you would have nothing to worry about. Insecurity is the main reason those macho men are afraid of a strong woman.

ok you seem to lose some of what you are saying about strong women. being a strong woman is one thing .. bending all in her path is just being a b..ch (rhymes with witch) who like to have her own way and nothing matters. being strong and determined and resolute does not mean undermining others and making them feel inferior whether you are man or woman. so , a strong woman i have no problem, but a b..ch (rhymes with witch) , yes forget it.

I am afraid of strong women, true. Who says being afraid is wrong, though. Fear is equal to care. Let the idea be this way, yes I am afraid to break the glass that's why I'm not going to touch it. Simple. The other thing is, even men who were not afraid of women gets rejected because the strong woman is choosy, not content with what the guy can give. Who would want to waste time with a woman like that? And then, a man is said to be afraid because he chooses not to waste time with the strong woman? I see no logic in that.

i dont like how it says that men are still violent and all those other things..this sounds like the kind of feminism that depicts men as uncivilized brutes and woman as innocent victims..the kind of feminism that relies on false victimhood and demonizing males..it is basically propaganda..not an actual objective view..no. i dont think men are afraid of women..

Generalities. Let's don't make conclusions based on a few. I have seen many a henpecked man following all the rules and regulations set forth by their woman. Sure there are some men who fear a strong woman only because they want to dominate their woman and a strong woman won't let that happen. There is diversity in this world. Most strong women do have men in their lives. Personally, I insist on a 50/50 relationship and will move the relationship toward that goal regardless. Strong women do not intimidate me. I have discovered my woman must have brains or I get bored. Hey, if it turns out she makes more money than me, Great! I'll hit her up for a sub-prime loan. Hmmm??? We'll test how good her collection skills are when I miss a payment. Yes, this could get interesting.

Yeah I always hear men saying that yes they do like independent women but then when they have one they can't keep up with her or are threatened by her. I think that I am an independent woman and I feel that's one of the reasons why I don't have a boyfriend yet, because they are intimidated? It does suck but It is how most of the guys do feel. They are scared of having someone that can go head to head with them. I did hear that guys like being needed by their girlfriends and independent women don't need anyone else to do stuff for them, so I guess their egos might be hurt when an independent women doesn't need them for something.

Hi didi, Yes there are an awful lot of men like that out there but surely not all of them. Those that are strong and independent and secure themselves do NOT feel in the least intimidated by a strong woman. I am strong and independent and my experience has been that the only men that felt threatened by that are the ones that were insecure or had a need to control...maybe due to insecurity. I have dated men who were equally as independent and strong as I am that do actually appreciate that I don't NEED them for anything other than their company and friendship etc. The less needy a person is, the more apt they are to find a relationship based on genuine love.

I love a woman who is independent and stronger. Why not? I appreciate them being better than men in terms of independence. It doesn't mean that I hate weak women.

The thing is: a man says he loves a strong educated woman but the fact is many prefer the opposite. In some countries/cultures men don't care. Perhaps they have more self esteem and they aren't afraid? Men who can't handle a strong, educated woman have less self esteem (not my words it's proved). They need the dumber partner so they look better themselves. Als a fact is that if women are strong and educated they are more frequently single.
