Do you think a woman being to independent makes some guys afraid of you?
I have a male friend, we've been friends for year, like sense the 1980's - Anyhow, we've both been married and divorced. We found each other again and have become more than friends, so to say.
BUT I get the feeling that he is scared of my Independence. I'm now a single mom, my ex ran from paying child support and has not seen the kids in two and half years.
I own a home, have a decent job, my oldest just finished her first year of college.
The kids and I recently took a trip through three states - was suppose to be four, but we came home a day early - not traveling through Oklahoma due to the bad weather.
He has been divorced twice, the second in 2006 - lives with his mom - which does not bother me. We live in a small tourist town where the rent it outrageous. I could not rent a place for what I pay for my home each month. It's insane. Plus he works two jobs and takes care of his parents ranch - he'd never be at his home, if he were to rent.
I just don't understand - so ?
What are your thought on a women being too interdependent - does is scare some men away?

I think it does scare some men, especially if you have known this guy for awhile and you have become more independent over time. When my husband came back home from deployment, I was very independent compared to what he was use to. It did scare him a bit and it was a bit hard for him to adjust to the new me. I would just talk with him and see how he feels.
