Like Mulan, a woman should take charge of her life when necessary
I had a conversation with a friend in her early 30s a couple weeks ago. She had just broken up with her boyfriend of close to 5 years. I brought up a couple of points that I felt strongly about and I thought I’d share them with you.
- A woman has a finite window in her life when she can have kids safely, easily and without too much complications. If she wants children but the man who she’s with cannot commit, or does not want to have children with her, then she has to cut her losses short and move on. In this case, listening to her biological clock is the right thing to do.
- A single woman in her 30s who’s confident, and who’s established in her career should stop playing the coquettish woman she was in her 20s. If she likes a man, she should make the first move. Stuff “The Rules” and take the initiative. Men really love that. I know I do. And if he doesn’t, it doesn’t matter – you don’t want an insecure man anyway. You ain’t got time to dick around. 😉
