I don’t read a lot of blogs by women on how to act around men, but I find what’s interesting is that this is the same sort of thing I advocate for guys looking to attract women. You have to view yourself as valuable or the insecurity/neediness/whatever will “leak” through and scare the other person off. So I agree with the principle, but I don’t know about the nomer “emotional dependency”. I think, as a man, I would much rather be a strong enough guy so that I wasn’t “dependent” upon any one person for emotional stimulation, but rather still have one person I actively select to get this from. Does that make sense?
