    The problem is that men and women define “independence” in different ways. For a man, it means being allowed and accepted for who he is rather than what a woman wants him to be. For example, I am a former Buddhist, current agnostic…I want to be accepted for who I am (the way women want to be accepted for who THEY are) without being “changed” or any BS about “being unevenly yoked” (want to talk about being “unevenly yoked?” How about MY intelligence vs. yours?).
    Women define “being independent” as self-determination; being able to do for herself. The Bottom line is that “independence” is an overstated term with an even more overstated implication. In order to be a part of anything which includes others outside of ourselves (such a relationship), it means that we must be willing to surrender some (or all) of our individuality and independence (most of that concept is based on fear of being “played,” not love of self). Most men don’t want an “independent woman;” we want a best friend!
