  1. Kat this Article is 100% on point. Morover, I guess the HARVARD Business Review article proves what I have known all along! NAMELEY that:

    “men still prefer female partners who are less professionally ambitious than they are. Because of this, many single women face a trade-off: Actions that lead to professional success might be viewed less favorably in the heterosexual marriage market.” I say FOOEY to all of this!!!!!

    SO MANY MEN do NOT want to even look at me as marrage material b/c of the fact that I am a sucesful female profesional lawyer, partner at a NYC law firm and duly admitted to practice as a lawyer in the courts of the State of New York, JUST b/c I am successful. FOOEY!

    If I were a dummy, Dad says I would be married along time ago b/c I would NOT be expected to do anything exept look pretty for my husband. But since I am smart, men shy away from me b/c they do NOT want to be shown up, he says. Dad (who has advanced degrees and has taught at Stanford and MIT), says that men just want me for s-x, so that they can tell their freinds that they have had s-x with me, but are not interested in establisheing any kind of relationship with me b/c I am to smart. DOUBEL FOOEY!

    I wish men would just accept me for what I am and PROVE the Harvard Busness Review wrong. But they won’t b/c they are men and are just interested in showing off to their freinds by pointing to women like me and telling their friends that they were abel to sleep with me. TRIPEL FOOEY!
