I didn't see a confident independent beautiful nude woman. I just saw someone who maybe was confident because she high. There is a lot to be said about a beautiful woman not posing nude. I didn't see an independent woman there either. She has the habit of becoming the men she dates. If one was a wine connoisseur she became one also. If one was a marathon runner, she became a runner. Now she's a photographer.
Nothing wrong with discovering a new interest from someone you are dating but becoming their interest is just a form of conforming; not independence. My younger self was guilty of this also. I felt if I could become interested and surround myself in their interests it would keep them around longer. Luckily I grew out of this by my late 20's. I would take an interest in their hobbies but never more would I obsess or take up their hobbies.
What happened to sisters before misters. Or hoes before bros. Chicks before dicks. Your female friends will be there for you unconditionally (usually if not ditching them); if you're taking up your man's hobbies to stay relevant then you've already placed conditions on your relationship. Your female friends are your moral compass. They help prevent your brain from going stupid when your body parts are wanting to 'do' stupid. I for one wouldn't vag block but certainly would interject if she starting to get a little stupid.
I can only surmise this is why my two friends left; didn't want to hang out with a moral compass. I have been missing them dearly and hope the best for them but a friend to think it's okay to ditch for a dude isn't a friend. Also hope my daughter realizes sooner than I that men may come and go but if her heart gets broken, a good friend will be there to help mend.
