I'm a 29-year-old professional Latina. I'd love to find a good man—preferably a Latino—to share the rest of my life with. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to find such a man. I don't know what's going on with our hombres who feel so threatened by intelligent women with good jobs and aspirations. I feel that if I didn't work and stayed home cooking, cleaning and taking care of a bunch of kids all day, I'd have found a man already. What do you think?

Don't despair. Miracles happen every day. Keep your hopes up, but don't center your life around waiting for a Latino in shining armor. Expand your social circle, do unusual recreational activities. Remember not everyone hangs out at the dance club every weekend. And your assumption is wrong: The type of woman you describe becomes like that after finding a man.
