I get this from my clients all of the time. In fact I used to say this too. That's a woman's desire for a man's masculinity, his initiative taking and overcoming → you aren’t wrong for wanting this from men.
However here is where it is off in us ladies—and it’s easy to turn around:
A man won't approach a woman who isn't open, especially nowadays with so many important conversations around consent.
A woman who seems like she isn’t open can come off as shut down or as a masculine energy woman (or at least in that moment.)
What do I mean by an open woman?
Well, just like you as a woman have a radar for masculine energy, so does a man for feminine energy.
If a woman isn't approachable, warm, open, inviting it signals to him at a primal level that you aren't up for being approached or even more so that a woman isn’t in her Feminine. Women in their masculine energy with men feel like they could become emasculating woman in relationship and could also constantly be in competition with him, so possibly derail his purpose/mission as a man.
So an example:
He looks at you across the room…
Do you pretend not to see him?
Or do you make warm eye contact and smile back (open).
As a woman you want strong boundaries, you want to filter men out that aren’t a fit for you and by no means accept anything that is disrespectful, but you also need to make sure your energy is undefended, unguarded, open, approachable, warm→ Use your b!t$h shield only when truly needed.
B!t$h Shield = Masculinity.
Your heart is your Feminine core, show it to them men you want to approach you.
Your heart calls to his.
You are always loved,
