3 things successful women want in relationships

30 March 2016, 19:05 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - What do successful women want in relationships? Here are three.

There is nothing worse than good sex from the wrong man for you

That thing will and can ruin your life. One of the things that a woman who is doing well in all scopes of life including relationships will eternally be grateful for is this. There is nothing worse than stumbling across the wrong person either at the wrong or right time in your life. If you can easily walk away from a man who is doing you wrong left right and center but the sex is not blinding you from making the wrong decision; or thinking you can stick it out until you are ready- you have achieved something really massive in life my dear, let no one tell you different.

A lot of women’s lives, careers, work, family life or plans have been ruined because she made the mistake of landing Mr. Wrong but he was that good in that. Everybody is asking but why can’t you just leave him, why are you sticking around? She will look at you dumbfounded but I bet you she knows. That is how some men end up being kept, living the easy going life, not doing what they need to do like stepping up and any other thing you can think of because I am sure you know what I am talking about. I am also sure an individual or two comes in mind when you think of this.

A man who is supportive and not bruised by what she is doing or capable of doing

Ego is sensitive, everyone has ego-even women have ego and ego ruins relationships. A week ago I came across an article talking about the type of women Kenyan men do not like when it comes to their careers-typical! You will get angry about it but when you realistically think about it, it is sort of true. What I always say is this; you cannot dumb down for a man or let a man take away from you. There is a woman out there who will be told to leave her work or a young lady will not study something because she knows it might affect her family-wise.  Successful women, never dumb down, they do what suits them and when the right man comes a long, he takes her as she is and appreciates her for it.

If you keep trying to please someone other than yourself, it will affect you and eventually the relationship and the same person you were working so hard to please will easily just go pick what you thought they do not want. It is not about being submissive but the type of happiness that comes from you because you are doing what you like. You are not giving him the burden of him trying to figure out you happiness because you already have that. You have no idea how tedious it is for a man not to be able to make the woman he is with happy, it becomes like a sort of failure for him. No one wants a reminder of failure so if you are not happy, you will just see him chasing after what you initially thought he did not want.  You are angry? That is just how it works. Know your own mind when getting into anything.

Being able to balance family and career

Of course she wants to succeed at both but it does get tricky. You will also find that having a supportive partner comes in handy when that time comes. If they are able to step in while you are away and not keep creating an issue from it, then you have a keeper. Thing is, most women get the polar opposite so for most, they do drop out because who is she going to leave her babies to? You cannot trust helps 24/7. That is why for some women, they resurface years later trying to revive her career and catch up with her former peers. But so much time has passed, it tends to get hard and tricky, so she easily gives up, stays at home but gets bitter and finds consolation in her children.
