“She got a good job with benefits, she take care of her child(ren), got a nice crib and car. Damn shorty doing it big, so why is she single?”
We all heard that saying in one form or another, haven’t we? I was relaxing at a long day watching one of my favorite shows “Sex in The City”. It was the one where Charlotte was getting married for the first time, and she found out her husband had trouble getting it up. But that’s a blog story for another day. This episode also touch on Miranda’s issues with finding a suitable man. As soon as she mentioned she was a lawyer, the conversation ended.
She eventually ended up lying and saying she was a flight attendant to get a date. But it was apparent that some man have a problem with woman who are doing well without a man’s help.
It’s a double edge sword, because no man wants a gold digger, but she can’t make more money than you or be more successful than you. So you’re damned if you do, and damn if you don’t. Seems a bit unfair, don’t you think?
Some woman had to learn to take care of themselves at an early age. With that motivation to make it, they moved up in the world. So they bank account is in good standing and they can provide for their needs as well as their wants. But should they be single because of it?
When you’re a single mother, that motivation is heightened. You have a family to take care of so you make it happen. You strive to gain finical freedom and once you get you are proud. Why is it that some men can’t respect that and see that as a good thing and not a bad thing?
