Dating men lawyers

For a generation of SWANS — Strong Women Achievers, No Spouse — these myths have become conventional wisdom.

If you attended a good school, have an impressive job, have career aspirations or dream of future success, men will find you less attractive.

“I’ve been told by well-meaning relatives: ‘Don’t talk about work on a date, dumb it down, and it’s bad to earn so much money because guys will be scared of you.’ And I got the word ‘intimidating’ a lot,” said Alexis, a 35-year-old lawyer in San Francisco. Nearly half of single women believe their professional success is intimidating to the men they meet.

Put another way, many high-achieving women think their success is not helping them find love.

A smart woman wants to date a smart man, since men less intelligent than her frankly bore her to tears.

Because, as fabulous as these ladies are, all of their failed relationships have one thing in common: themselves.And frankly, telling them that men are losers or even proving it conclusively doesn't improve anyone's plight. Now I've been running and attending young alumni events for Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, MIT, Columbia, Duke, Swarthmore, Penn, Cornell, Berkeley, Brown, Dartmouth, Oxford, Cambridge and similar well-regarded institutions for a while.I've also been privy to the dating woes of hundreds of men who wrote me subsequent to their reading . Some smart women put themselves in a no-win bind when it comes to finding an intellectual match.And if a woman makes a lot of money, men will be intimidated.Conservative and liberal pundits alike mythologized the failure of feminism and the “waste” of these talented women who were searching for soul mates.
