Do You Date a Career Type?
Aside from trying to compensate for a woman’s low self-esteem, some women date career types of men to protect themselves from getting hurt in the relationship. There are a lot of us who are just too scared to be close to anyone. Our experiences in the past, disappointments, or failed relationships can actually make us hesitate to be in a serious relationship once again. Women tend to think that those men who are very successful in their careers also won’t have time to get serious in a relationship. So when things don’t work, they both will not have a hard time letting go of each other. So for women, dating a career type is a way to avoid emotional fallout.
The explanations provided above on why women would choose to date career-driven types of men might seem unfair to some. Of course, it isn’t right to judge how successful men truly feel about the women they date. Although there is a common perception that such men are generally commitment-phobic, there are still some who would want to be in a serious romantic relationship with a woman who they think fits them perfectly.
