I struggle back and forth as many modern women do with wanting to be taken care of because I own my own house and pay for all my bills myself. But sometimes I DO get tired of it and I always have a sugar daddy or rich husband fantasy not too far away in the back of my head. I go to a gym where there's a lot of rich people and I often envy the women who never have to lift a finger to do much and not work at all or every worry about their finances: think pampered Orange County Housewife types. And yet, as much as I envy them, I'm proud to have my own economic power and not rely on a man.
Still though, and I'm pretty sure this is frequent, as a modern woman, I struggle with it everyday. And strangely some men are still intimidated by a woman who has her own home. They're like " You bought this yourself?" Um yes, why is that surprising?
Then surprisingly, once, a client laughed at me when I said I enjoyed being a financially independent woman. He said " You're relying on MEN just like the same way a housewife relies on her husband." I didn't agree with that, but it got me thinking a little.
