Dear MISSter Simms,
I wanted to get a guy’s perspective on this question I’m about to ask you. Ready? Here it goes. Do you think it’s possible for a powerful woman to date a not as successful man, and if so, how can we do it without emasculating them? You don’t know how many guys I think I’ve scared off because of my income level and fierce streak of independence. Help!
Think about it like this. How would you feel if one day you woke up, showered, put your clothes on, drove an hour to your job, and your boss told you you were no longer needed because you had been replaced by a robot? I imagine you’d feel terrible and wage a one woman war against robot kind.
That’s exactly how men feel around powerful women. We all want to feel needed and men are no exception to this rule. If you want to keep dudes from heading for the hills every time they’re around you, you have to make them feel like they’re important. Like they are a necessary and vital park of your life. That’s it! You could be making a million dollars, and your man could be making minimum wage at Walgreens, but he’ll stay around as long as he feels like he has a place in your life.
