Independent women

Independent women have nowadays their own funds, ideas, hobbys and friends. They do not need to listen to what men say and think. They pay their own bills when they go out with possible partners (of course when they find time in their busy schedule). These women lead a very interesting life, full of targets, deadlines, meetings, presentations, responsibilities, aerobic classes, cars and good clothes. They always look sharp, nice hairdo, makeup, the latest trend in business dress code and the latest duo technology for their notebook processor. This dynamic rithm is continued until the women reach 30-35 years and they suddenly realise their friends think in 2 because they all have spouses. When they walk in the park they look with contemplation to the women who look after their babies and small kids, talking about the problems and they joys they encounter. Our case study women notice that they would like to have some other source joy in their life, except money, properties and car. Then the ides comes into their minds: find a man, marry and make kids. The only problem is it may be too late, the target men already have gone through these procedures with other women, not so independent, not so career oriented, who did not sacrifice so much for their development, stable income and targets.
After this our women agree that this is the price they need to pay, go to the office, plan the project organization for the next 3 weeks and go home at 3 a.m. After 1 week they decide to buy a cat or a dog and take care of the pet, substituting this way the need to care and be cared by someone.
Around the age of 35-40 our women have already adopted the 'Sex and the city' lifestyle. Therefore make a baby with the first man they have intercourse with after a long period of abstinence. Or find an older man tired of many failed relationships with top models lacking of personality, find a waiter which you can transform into a successful actor or fall in love with a man who can't marry you because you are not of the same religion as him.
Even Forbes magazine gives this advice to men: "Marry pretty women or ugly ones. Short ones or tall ones. Blondes or brunettes. Just, whatever you do, don't marry a woman with a career". A recent study has shown that even career women prefer the man to be the primary breadwinner of the family.

So, my dear women, do you think the future sounds nice? Don't worry just yet, this post is exaggerated and it is meant to make us prioritize everything in our lives with better care: ourselves, family, job, friends and so on. What do you think about all this nonsense?

  • As in any other aspect of life, ballance is the answer. Have a carrer, work 12 hours a day, but that's it. Longer hours on daily basis mean lack of efficiency in my opinion. Take care of yourself and of those around you and do not hide in your work for more than a couple of weeks when everything goes wrong. Success recepe from me :) Easy to be determined, hard to apply, like all solutions given to us :D

  • I do not agree with 12 hours per day. This means I live in order to work. Long live the French work schedule for 6 hours :)In Romanian program, let's say I agree with 8 hours. But that's highest tolerable limit in my opinion.

  • Well, you cannot always be there for only 8 hours (especially if you also have a one hour lunch break) There are moments when extra hours are needed. But I guess what amounts to more than four extra hours is simply inhuman. As for the French schedule...well, that is a little exagerated for me!

  • In my opinion there are few happy women who have a career. Any women must work for financial independence, but don’t exaggerate, a young women need time also for friends, for parties, for travels, for reading …and maybe until 30 year, for marriage.

  • Annonymous, I hope you're right and women nowadays can prioritize their tasks and manage to find time for themselves.
    I don't want to see or hear of women who sacrifice their physical and mental health for too high standards in order to prove to themselves and others that women can do men's work and in addition take charge of family responsibilities.
    I want to see in Romania the model of European families where women are treated as privileged members and therefore are understood, helped and respected.
