Why Am I Successful, But Single?Jan 11th, 2010 | Author: admin | Category: Fly Letters
Dear Fly Guy,
I’m sure you’ve heard this same question a million times before, but I need you to answer it for me. I’m a single, successful woman and I just don’t understand why it’s so hard to find a man. I don’t want to put anyone else down, but it seems like women who are less deserving always end up with the good man. Is there something wrong with me? Or is it what I suspect, that men are intimidated by a woman that’s just as successful as they are? Please help.

Dear Ms. Confused By Dating,
I can understand your frustration, as this emotion is shared by many beautiful, successful women just like you. To answer your question directly, are men intimidated by successful women? Some are … but none of those men were right for you anyway, so let’s not dwell on them. Let’s instead focus on a point that many women in your shoes tend to overlook:
“Education affords you many things in life, but love isn’t one of them. That requires a completely different skill set.”
While impressive, a resume doesn’t make you anymore deserving of true love than someone with a GED. Love doesn’t care about those credentials … it only cares about your intentions. So if your heart is in the right place, then in time I’m sure you’ll attract a like-minded spirit that makes you happy.
The key is not to give up. I wish I could give you a more accurate timeframe for when love will find you, but it doesn’t work that way. You just have to be ready for the moment when it comes. I hope this helps.
