So I made a question earlier on about what guys think about smart girls, and one of my responders said they're nice as long as they don't have that, "I don't need a man" attitude. He basically said that having that attitude takes away from a girls femininity and makes them less nurturing and stuff like that. I for one, do not think you necessarily need a man in your life to survive. I would personally think that if some chick was constantly walking around going, "I need a man, I need a man" that would be a turn off. I am also independent, and headstrong, so that may have something to do with it. Lol. Now of course once I got into a relationship I would need MY man, but I'm not going to center my life around getting a guy. I'm VERY nurturing, caring, loving, gentle, patient, and kind. I am also, due to my life circumstances, strong, and realistic. I know, and had to live through the consequences of someone elses, "I need a man" concept. Do I WANT one? Sure. Am I going to break my neck for one and act like I'm not capable of making it on my own? Nooooo. Soooo guys, tell me what your opinion is.

I feel the same way you do and have actually learned something as to how the men have been perceiving this statement. When like you I am self reliant I still want a man, but don't "NEED" one... as a woman I always assumed men would understand it in the same way I do as in I don't need one to survive so if I'm interested in you then I'm genuinely interested in YOU not WHAT you can provide because " I don't NEED a man... I must say my eyes have been opened by this post... So wise to be so young in your thinking... just don't wait til your my age to learn how to better express it. As from your post and the men's responses I have been expressing it all wrong !1
