10 Things All Single Career Driven Women Secretly Want But Don’t Say

We aren’t needy in anyway but that doesn’t mean we don’t need someone in our lives. Someone who’s supportive of our career goals and isn’t threatened by our success. Someone who knows how important it is to have a life outside the relationship. Someone who understands what giving their partner the space they need means. We want to be in a relationship with someone who’s mature and understands that personal growth is as important as maintaining a healthy relationship.


We sometimes need a shoulder to cry on.

We don’t expect you to solve our problems for us but it would be nice to know that there’s someone who’s got our back.

We want to be with a man who isn’t afraid of our success.

Why does a man always feel threatened by a woman’s success? We want to be able to support our families just the way you support yours. What’s wrong with that?

We want to be wooed, we want romance and the works.

​Just because we’re career driven, doesn’t mean we don’t want to have a great personal life or don’t appreciate the occasional romantic gesture. Why is it that we have to choose between one or the other? Why can’t we have it all?

We want to date chivalrous men, the ones who’ll open the door for us and pull out the chair on a date.

It may sound hypocritical to you when we rant about equality of genders and then at the same time want our men to be chivalrous but why does it have to be one or the other? Where are all the good men gone?

We want to feel needed and loved.

We want you to know that we are here to support you and stand by your side. We want you to rely on us because there’s nothing we would rather do than be for you in your times of need.

We need your help with our work and chores.

As much as we’d like to pretend like we’ve got it all under control, we will never say it out louad but we could really use your help.

We want to be cuddled and held.

We are all we need but it’s nice to have someone to hold onto and fall asleep with at the end of the day.

We want to be with someone who wants to be with us and not just anyone.

We don’t want to be in a relationship for the sake of being in a relationship. We want it to be something remarkable, something that makes us feel special.

We want people to stop commenting on how we’ll always be single if we continue to make our career our main focus.

Are men really that needy that they can’t accept the fact that we have a life outside the relationship? I really don’t think so. And why does a woman have to be in a relationship to have a complete wholesome life? Seriously, who decides these things?

We want to be pampered and praised, we want your approval. We don’t need it, but we do want it.

It’s not like we’re dying to get your approval but it’s always nice to get a compliment every once in a while. It’s nice to get that reaffirmation that we’re doing the right thing.
