This is NOT a reflection of whether he could be happy with a Boss Lady.He probably would be, because the traits that initially come across as bossy may later be deemed forthright or confident.

Your Tango spoke to Greenwald about why you should never Facebook friend a guy before going out with him, who should pay for dinner and the number one reason men don't call you back. Rachel Greenwald: To me a successful first or second date is simply an invitation to go out again.
You can't really get to know who the person is deep down until you spend more time with them, so the lack of a follow-up date invitation means that someone has quickly stereotyped you.

The number one reason why men didn't call a woman back is what I call The Boss Lady.
This is a stereotype of a women who is very accomplished and successful and frankly fabulous in so many ways, but the man walks away from the date thinking that he's more interested in hiring her than dating her.
He thinks she's argumentative, competitive, not feminine, controlling and not nurturing.
