Independence is great—to a point. Call it ego, male insecurity, whatever you like. There's no getting around the fact that we need to feel that we're in this for more than just sex (yeah, I know... sounds weird coming from a guy). If you keep telling a man (and showing him, too) that you can do everything on your own, then what do you need him for? As shallow as it may sound, we do have to have our ego fed just a bit (maybe some guys more than others, but I think you get the idea).

Most Helpful Girl
I am strong, independent, and able to live my life without a man in it. That's just the plain and simple truth and if I'm honest, that's the kind of person I want to be. I never want to be the kind of woman who feels she can't be single- that tends to lead you to some bad relationships because you grab the first guy who comes along.
That's not to say that if I'm dating someone my life isn't better for having them in it or that I don't come to rely on them for being there to share things with, get support from, and generally go through life with. I most certainly do. I lean on my friends, family, and the guy I'm dating when I need to and I count on them for making the good moments in life better. I would also never tell a guy I didn't need him- that seems rude and hurtful for no real reason. Any guy I date becomes an important part of my life.
But I'm happy to know I'll always be able to survive on my own two feet...0
