I think guys who can't handle an independent chick are just insecure. I love independent chicks cause I try to keep myself busy. I have hobbies, and I plan on maybe going back to school. I wanna also learn how too cook, and give massages so I can REALLY pull chicks. Or REALLY hang on to one, depending which comes first. So why woud I want some chick always bothering me? Absence makes the heart grow fonder and (too much) familiarity breeds contempt. It's better that way. You appreciate the time you have much more that way. And at the same time you can set yourself up to be as complet of a success at whatever you want. It's win win.
