The reason I am asking this because I have always been an independent man. Due to a few terrible encounters with women in the past I am very guarded. Therefore, I don't really interact with women much. Back in high school, I went to prom with some friends. A woman wanted to dance with me. I told her I didn't want to dance with anybody. One time a woman offered me ride home from class, I told her I'd rather walk home. Another woman offered to pay her own way and go to the movies with me, I told her I'd rather go alone and not be bothered. Can a man be too independent for you in this case?
