It’s been three years since I’ve written a post about “How To Date An Ambitious Girl” and still, there are stereotypes that need to be overcome.
Society views strong ambitious women in a particular light, and the views tend to come out in the questions we’re asked from family, friends and potential suitors.
Recently, Lauren Conrad stopped by Sway45 radio show and had an amazing response to a “what’s your favorite position?” question.
Here are four questions ambitious millennial women are tired of hearing:
1. Do you know how to cook?
I always get this question from men I date (or actually guys who are trying to flirt or get to know me better in the hopes of getting a date). Recently, I probed one guy asking him why he would even ask such a question since all adults should be able to cook, and he said: “You’re of the independent women movement. Y’all order take out.” Really?
2. Why are you single?
Well, if I knew the answer to that question, I wouldn’t be single now would I?
3. Do you want to get married?
Do you ask single men this question, or is this solely my responsibility as a woman? (For an explanation of how skewed this mentality is, click here.)
4. When are you free?
I mention this in my “How To Date An Ambitious Girl” post. This girl probably has a to do list filled with items longer than the hours that exist in a single day. She hates having idle time, so every second or block of time is filled with something she should be doing. So, asking her when she is free is quite frankly annoying. It hits a chord because she feels like she should never be “free” persay. In her mind free time is a waste of time. So, to ask her when she is free will never get you a straight answer and definitely won’t get her to give you any of it.
