I always hear men complain that they hate clingy women, and that they like women who don't always want to be around them. And yet, some of the men I've dated don't seem to like how independent I am. Isn't it better that I can do things on my own without having to lean on a guy for support for everything? If I needed a guy to do everything for me, or to be around me all the time I wouldn't have survived the last seven years I've lived on my own.
One guy I work with was complaining about his girlfriend wants to be with him everyday. And yet a couple weeks later, he was telling a couple of the guys how they got in a fight because she wanted to drive to Toronto by herself, as if she isn't capable of doing it on her own. They've only been dating for about six months. What does he think happened to her when she went to Toronto before they dated? From what I heard, she goes to Toronto a lot.

"If I needed a guy to do everything for me..."
There is a broad middle ground between a clingy woman and one who is so independent she leaves a guy feeling unimportant. Guys do like to feel needed too. And there is a category of women who seem to be so in love with the idea that they don't need a man that they come off as having a chip on their shoulder.
It's probably not accurate to say men are scared off. More turned off, I'd say.0
