I may be in the minority on this thought, but as a woman when you're so independant it tends to work against you in relationships. You aren't seen as a vulnerable person who needs support after a time. A man may feel unwanted under those circumstances, because you got it all together... what do you need him for?
This is actually what has kept us together. When we met I was a college student part time and working full time. We have always been financially independent. He used to emotionally support me through anything including a major death in my family.
We talked about the resentment I built up, he said he was sorry. I understood that he dealt with it the best he new how and moved on....but that emotional distance has remained...
