These days, women are becoming more and more empowered. As a result, they’ve become clear on what they want, and they won’t settle for anything less.
Being with this kind of woman could be the most fulfilling relationship you’ll ever have. They’re driven, but understanding, passionate but nevertheless loving. And they’ll make you a better person…
If you’re up to the task.
Here are 9 things you should prepare yourself for if you want to date a strong and independent woman.
9 things to expect when dating a strong, independent woman
1. She doesn’t play nor tolerate games.
She means what she says. If she wants to be with you, she’ll say it. If not, you’ll be the first one to know.
A strong woman doesn’t have time to play any games, and she will never tolerate it from you, too.
2. She expects you to know what you want.
No one knows her own mind better than a strong woman. Therefore, she finds indecisiveness weak and annoying.
She doesn’t expect you to make hasty decisions, but she expects you to make it, and stick to it. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as it’s something you believe in. In short: she just wants you to know your sh*t.
3. She craves deep and honest conversations.
She’s done enough small talk to last her a lifetime. What she wants now, is someone whom she can have genuine conversations with—someone who is passionate about something and cares about what’s happening around them.
4. If she gives you respect, she expects to be respected back.
This is a partnership, not a one-way street. She will treat you with respect. But you better treat her right, too. Otherwise, it’ll be over before you know it.
5. She’ll never let you down.
At least never intentionally.
If she says she’ll do one thing, she’ll do it. She won’t stand you up on dates. She will be there when she says she will. She’ll always follow through with her promises.
Strong women value the time and effort that people give them. The same way she expects you to value her time as well.
6. She wants to be with someone as ambitious as she is.
A strong and independent woman can’t tolerate being with someone who brings them down. They want to be successful in life, so they want someone who is just as hungry for success as they are.
She can’t respect someone who doesn’t work hard because she will always work twice as hard than anybody else.
7. She wants loyalty.
A strong woman doesn’t demand. She won’t even beg. But she expects loyalty in her partner.
However, she’ll expect loyalty because you are willing to give it to her, not because she asks it from you.
She will never stay with someone who doesn’t understand what that means.
8. She wants spontaneity.
A strong woman likes the opportunity to exchange her little black dress and stilettos for a movie night in her pajamas on the couch. But she doesn’t want to do that every night.
She’s adventurous. She likes being on the move. And she wants to be taken out on date nights from time to time, too.
9. She will never settle for anything less than a lifetime commitment.
She’s smart and reasonable. She won’t expect an immediate marriage proposal. Heck, she might not even want marriage.
But when she commits to you, it’s forever.
A strong woman knows what she brings to the table.
Strong women don’t invest emotions and energy on a relationship they know won’t get anywhere, so when you feel that she’s throwing herself headfirst in your relationship, never doubt—she’s thinking of you and her for the rest of your lives.
