The Big Reason Why Katie Couric Is Not Married

The Big Reason Why Katie Couric Is Not Married

“Whilst not quite 50, I couldn't help relating to the article At 28, I am moving across the world for my job after being offered the opportunity. I am single, I own property, good career, I would tick boxes that would deem someone "successful" but am I really looking for a beta male? I don't think so.

I am these things not because I want to be alpha in relationships but because I don't have a relationship to provide these things. I don't want to boss people around and I would love someone to protect me financially, emotionally and physically to the best of his ability... but until then, I have to do that for myself.

Meanwhile, why can't I be successful? What should I be doing to catch this alpha male aside from living my life? Should I be sitting around waiting for prince charming turning down opportunities?

True alpha males would not be intimidated by a female's successes. I would want nothing more than a guy to come along and provide me all the things.. I'd be happy to give up work, have children and provide support, I don't want to lead financially or physically - being emotionally strong is so draining.. but if noone is doing this, what's a girl to do?

Its not fair to say we want someone to let us be alpha...I don't... however I am not going to lead a less that fruitful life whilst waiting..”
