It’s no surprise then that people who waste time whining and complaining about trivialities are of no interest to them.
When a problem arises, someone with a strong personality will simply focus on what needs to be done to fix it.
I'm an independent, caring, honest, athletic, average-looking female in my 30s, I'm happy with who I am and know I have a lot to offer, but and I'm having trouble meeting the right guys (or any guys at all for that matter! I actually get along better with men than I do with women, and I think I have a lot of similar interests with most men. I've had troubles in the past discussing my emotions with others, but that is no longer a problem as long as I am given some time to figure out how I feel before being forced to discuss it. I could understand if these personality traits scared some people away, but I haven't even had a chance to display these personality traits because I can't seem to find a date!
I love sports (play softball, run regularly, and love to try new activities), I work out regularly. I've gotten used to being on my own and having to do things for myself to the point that it often makes me uncomfortable when people want to do things for me or give me gifts. I always donate and support friends' charity endeavors, and I always buy little gifts or make little treats for those I care about. My personal trainer, who acts as my pseudo-therapist, says that men are intimidated by me.
They almost certainly won’t spend precious time and effort seeking the attention of others.
Instead, strong people simply keep their collective heads down and do what needs to be done.
This tremendous work ethic and ability to take advantage of opportunities can intimidate the less motivated, which can in turn invite hostility.Why agonize over a problem or situation when one is powerless to control it?As someone who continuously strives to do the best he or she can, those that try to use them as a sounding board for meaningless complaints and pointless banter are quickly turned away.This is particularly true when working or concentrating on some other important task – strong personalities simply don’t have the time or inclination to engage in trivial conversations.Needless to say, small talk is a big part of daily life in America.
