Rich Cooper outlines the con's of dating a career woman. I found these issues to be my experience as well.
1. She doesn't know how to shut off her competitive mindset she used to battle men all day in her job. She becomes disagreeable, argues more, and her submissiveness evaporates. Women aren't very good at compartmentalizing like men. She will bring it all home and you will get to hear all about it.
2. She puts in long hours. Skips lunch. Stop working out. Stops eating right. Falls asleep easily. Is wiped out at the end of the week. Her work erodes into her personal life. She will be headed to an airport Sunday afternoon so she can be at some convention/meeting first thing Monday morning. She will get back late Friday evening tired from her trip. She will work on Sunday. She won't use all her allotted vacation.
3. They age prematurely due to the stress. I saw the wrinkles come on and her face change in the 2yrs.
4. They internalize female power and bring that into your relationship.
5. They don't need a husband/boyfriend. They need a wife/girlfriend.
6. They don't even have time for their own personal interests/hobbies outside of work, much less your interests. Her job is #1, her personal interests are #2 when she finds time. You will be #3.
7. I also noticed she started approaching sex like a man. No charm, no feminity......just I need some sex can you come fuhk me. Blunt and abrupt. That intimate connection dries up and it feels a little transactional.
I've never been needy, never needed much from my significant other, but being with a career woman is a very unnatural position for the man and woman to be in. In these relationships the woman becomes the man, or as in my case, the man gets tired of the battle and checks out.
For the first two years my girl wasn't this way, but she became this. I'll never date another. Hopefully this will serve to warn others. They might be a decent choice for something casual, but not for a serious relationship.
