I’ve certainly dated a few guys who added little to no value to MY life — hence why they were axed. I tended to be the “more” ambitious, “more” driven, “more” hardworking, and or “more” responsible one by the end which lead me to wonder why I was with someone who seemed pretty lax when it came to their goals, their careers, their futures. And I know PLENTY of other young, unwed women like myself who are perfectly content being so (unwed). Many of them are in relationships — as I have been — where the guy is the one totally guilty of taking a smart, attractive inside and out woman for granted; leading her along with the promise of more commitment to come that is later found never to be. So I don’t think it has anything to do with her providing genuine value. There are guys out there who will take a good woman and abuse her for everything she is worth and move along in a blink. His loss (not hers) and vice versa for the ladies out there who take a good man for granted.
