Guys (men especially) Should you be bothered?Ambition is a Woman
December 25, 2008 2:57pm CST
Today's woman is a thing of wonder, She's smart,agressive, and confident. She wants the same things that men do: a sense of fulfillment,power and of course, loads of cash. And she has what it takes to have it all. Women today are ambitious. They don't sit around, waiting for their men. They are out there,bashing heads and competing with the male population. Now tell me guys, does it bothers you?

I think its great! Especially in this recession people need two paychecks. I'm not working, because I'm in school. I'm trying to get a job tutoring/mentoring high school seniors; preparing them for the transition to college. My girlfriend is trying to find work as a bartender. I don't have a problem if she makes more money than me and helps support me for a change. I supported her for almost five years. I'm glad she found something that she wants to do. I think that the guys it does bother are living in the past. Like hunter-gatherer past! Today's women can take care of themselves.

Thanks for the response, and you are absolutely right that women nowadays can take care of themselves. I wonder if while you are searching for job in tutoring and so your girlfriend too of the same job you are seeking, then she got hired and you were not...How would your reactions be?

Well, if we were in competition for the same tutoring job and she got it and I didn't I wouldn't be happy. Because she's not in school and it's a part time gig that doesn't pay well. She can do better than that. I unfortunately can't for lack of time. If we were both going for a job that I really wanted I would be upset, because I really wanted that job! She wouldn't go for a job that I wanted that bad anyway, because she loves me. Just like I wouldn't go for a job that she wanted, because I love her. If it was just a job to make money I wouldn't care if she got it, because we pool our resources anyway. Money is money. But if it was a job in Sound Recording which is what I'm going to school for and what I want to do. I would be angry that she tried to take that job from me. Not because she is a woman, but because thats not what someone who loves you does. It's funny because many of my friends in school are taking the same major and if they got the job I wanted I wouldn't be too happy either. Of course who would be. I'm not sure what your point is.

Hello cynthia, you are just saying that indeed now a days women are just smart enough, to find ways and means of taking care of themselves that they will always try any possible thing to be able to have some extras. It's good to know that you are not depending much from your boyfriend at least you are still doing that part time job. I hope your boyfriend is not stopping you to have that part time job...Tell me, if given the chance, are you willing to work full time? Happy mylotting
