A woman claims she is still single because men are too intimidated by her.
Jana Hocking, from Australia, believes men don't like women who are career-driven and successful.
In a column for news.com.au, the 36-year-old said she couldn't understand why she and a number of her pals were still single, despite being active on the dating scene.
But after reading an interview with a successful female veterinarian, Jana said she realised what the issue was.
The relationship expert said: "You see, I've been on two different types of dates. There's the guy who wants to tell you all about his career, and proudly talk about the crazy stress and responsibility that comes with it.
"Then there is the guy who likes his job but is more excited about the footy on Friday night, and is ready to settle down with a nice lady and set up a home with kids and a white picket fence."
"Now there is absolutely nothing wrong with these guys, the thing is though, find yourself on a date with either one, and often you will see their eyes glaze over as you start telling them about your job, including your ambitions and goals."
Adding: "It would appear, from the outside, that many find it emasculating for a woman to kick ass in their career.
"Heaven forbid if she makes more money than them."
Admittedly, Jana says, there are men out there who don't care about this stuff and want their partner to do well in their career. They are just extremely rare.
"My question is... why?!" she asks.
"Is it a caveman thing, deep ingrained in our psyche that man is big tough hunter and woman stays home and looks after the cave?
"Are they worried that we are encroaching on their masculine energy? Do we come across as bossy or outspoken?
"Umm... have they not been following along with the #MeToo movement? Turns out we are quite capable of looking after ourselves."
Concluding, Jana says that anyone who isn't keen on dating a confident woman with a mind of her own can stay away from her.
She says: "So choof off with your old school views and do me a favour ... don't swipe right. Because just like yours, my time is precious."
Jana has previously written about first dates and why men should always pay.
In a column for News Corp, she wrote: "You know straight away if the guy goes Dutch then he is more than likely not very interested in the date going further.
"Let's end this debate once and for all and just say, blokes pay for the first date! It's hot, it's manly, and will have us bragging to our friends."
