Men Say I Come Across As Too Controlling – What Do I Do?

Question: 

Men Say I Come Across As Too Controlling – What Do I Do?

Given what I do for a living I come across as a powerful woman, often criticized by the men I date as “too controlling.” Is there a way to maintain the integrity of my personality without being perceived as too controlling?

Answer

Let me assure you that you are not alone.  As a matchmaker and dating coach to powerful men and women, I come across this issue frequently.

As a powerful woman, how do you feel when others try to control you? Once you put yourself in a guy’s shoes, it’s easy to appreciate that women who act controlling tend to repel  men.

Self-empowered women, on the other hand, magnetize men. Your integrity lies in being a self-empowered woman more so than a woman who exerts control over others, including men.

So how do self-empowered women act?

1.       They tend to be comfortable in their own skin, making those around them comfortable as well.

2.        Empowered women tend to have a strong sense of self, allowing them to be accepting of themselves and others.

3.       I'll leave you with one final thought:  Self-empowered women realize that their true power lies in their ability to control their own thoughts and actions, leaving little need to control others.

Best wishes!
