Why succesful women get the worst men

11 October 2014, 09:40 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - I have said some because it is never all, generalization is never good. Successful women get what they want most times because they push so hard for it to happen and they do make it happen. Thing is, when it comes to personal relationships or their personal lives, it is never that perfect and that is because they take that same attitude or approach that they use in their work lives and apply it to their personal lives.


Why the worst men? Because that is what they are. You see a very powerful woman, but when you look at the guy, it simply does not make sense. It is not because they never get to meet these men, just that they do but these men do not take too kindly to their tactics. It is okay to go after what you want, being the aggressor, thing is, learning to create the perfect balance. They went after the said men but they did not know when to pull back. Because the real man that we all want wants a woman that knows when to submit and exhilarates in the aspect of being the hunter. So when she is busy chasing him, he gets irritated because she is too predator-like and lets her go. So she will go for the guy that accepts her for who she is and lets her have her way but she will never be too satisfied.

Sexually Confident is one thing, being in heat is another thing

Approaching him and letting him know that you are interested is good. Take the step back and let him make the move. But when you are sexually aggressive with a man you want more than sex from, then you are going about it the wrong way. He needs to know that he is in control. If you want to be in control, you will get just that, but with a weaker man.

Trying too hard

He asked for the number but you are the one that calls to ask what happened. Calling him back to thank him for the date is trying too hard. If he did not like the company, well too bad for him, move on to the next one. Begging a man for attention makes you desperate. You can call to set up the date but the rest is up to him. Let him call the shots, if he is too shortsighted to do so then he was not the one for you.

 Scare tactics

If you need to scare someone to do something with you, give you more than they are ready to or you are pushing at a wall then stop. Go look for something more substantial where you do not need to force things to happen and make them happen there. Otherwise it was never meant to be.
