On dating men with “potential”

I agree. Healthy minded women should not fall for potential alone. Sometimes men have really bad (i.e. “non-nurturing”) mothers. Most psychologists agree that these men need to work on their ability to become independent. And yet there are plenty of ways that men with such upbringing can compensate for [at least some of] their dependancy. If the couple is reasonably functional (i.e. maybe one semi-serious argument per month — at most and one really bad argument per year) then what is so wrong with traditional role reversal? But alas, all of us are individuals and one-size approach has its limits. But of course — good advice overall.
