South African men revealed why it is harder to approach a successful woman for a relationship than women who have achieved much less.
On Thursday, Briefly.co.za asked our male readers why it is difficult for most guys to approach successful women when interested in a relationship.
Our readers flooded the comment section with some honest and a couple of hilarious responses. We decided to take a look at our favourite reactions.
1. They look down on us
Xolani Phori commented: "They look down on us the moment we try to approach them."
2. They are bossy
Mkhuseli Mbengo wrote: "Successful woman like to be bossy and she don't want to be humble even if she wrong she will not apologise. She don't care and she is rude. If you have disagreement with her that means there is a big problem until you agree with her."
3. Because of fear
Nkanyiso Shepard Zulu said: "I guess we have that fear that they might think we are after their success, not them."

6. It makes lobola negotiations difficult
Neutral K Lehasa commented: "Negotiating Lobola her uncle will be like "She is earning R25 000 a mouth so you can lobola her with less than what she earn" and they are too bossy, thinking they own you like they own most property."
