I’m a professional woman aged 35 who always wanted to have a good career and my own house and car. I wanted to be able to look after myself financially because too many women seem to depend on men.

The problem is that although I’ve now realised my dream of being independent and self-reliant, I’ve suddenly woken up to the fact that most women my age are married and that the men who are available usually have baggage from failed marriages or traumatic relationships.

I’m sick of dating guys who want to cry on my shoulder about their ex-wives and ex-girlfriends. I want someone who is independent, emotionally balanced and financially stable and who wants to have a partner rather than a dependent, helpless woman.
