    Post meaning

    What does the bold part mean?


    This is true if by "nice" you mean attentive, respectful, concerned, etc. but only from a position of not having to be. When I was in college there was a famous case of the very average guy who had snagged an unbelievably gorgeous girlfriend. I asked around about it and found out she'd told someone he was the only guy she'd ever met who respected her as a person and wasn't just out for her body. Observing him, though, it was clear he also projected the confidence of someone who would not crumble into a heap and die if she dumped him. He seemed like his own person, like he owned himself, like he had a life focus. That is really the only reason his attention and respect meant anything to her.
    Thank you very much

    Sentence for sentence, this is what it says:

    This man is confident in himself and not dependent on the opinions of others. He is the master of his own destiny. This is why the woman is attracted to him.
