Strong women are usually ‘all or nothing’ types of gals. In general, they despise modern dating and the last thing they want is a temporary affair. The last thing they want is to find a meaningless connection—a man who will make them feel better for just an instant, someone to help them get through the week or a man to wake up next to from time to time.
No, strong women want the real deal. They want an all-consuming, lifelong love and a man who will give them everything they need. A man who will see their true worth and a man who won’t be intimidated by their power.
However, this type of relationship is quite difficult to find nowadays. And here are the reasons why.
1. They won’t put up with anyone’s crap
A strong woman has some ground rules and deal-breakers. She knows what she wants and what she doesn’t want from life. A man who disrespects her, who treats her like crap or who doesn’t put any effort into the relationship is definitely not someone who fits her standards.
When you are involved with a woman like this, she won’t tolerate your bullshit behavior and she won’t be giving you endless second chances. No, this doesn’t mean that this girl doesn’t know how to fight for love—she simply refuses to be with someone who abuses her in any way or with someone who makes her life harder than it is.
2. They refuse to settle for less
One might call this woman too picky when it comes to men. Nevertheless, the truth is that she simply refuses to settle for less than she deserves.
This girl won’t allow herself to be led only by her passions and instincts. Instead, she will think it through before getting herself involved in a new relationship. Even if this woman is crazy for a man, she will leave him behind the moment he starts playing mind games or starts treating her the way she doesn’t deserve.
3. They want a real man
Every strong woman looks at a romantic relationship as a partnership in every sense of that word. This means that she doesn’t need an immature mama’s boy who she’ll have to raise and who’ll constantly need her hand to guide him through life.
A strong woman wants a real man who will be her teammate and partner in crime. A man who will be her lover and best friend, her biggest support and someone she can count on, no matter what.
4. They aren’t afraid of being single
There is one thing you need to remember—no strong woman will ever be in a relationship just for the sake of not being alone. Instead, this girl prefers remaining single until the right guy comes along rather than jumping from one man to another just out of fear of being lonely.
She knows that she is a complete person even without a man by her side and she doesn’t need anyone to fill a void in her life. She doesn’t want to waste her time on a man who doesn’t suit her, in the hope that he will give her existence meaning.
5. They don’t beg for love and attention
If you want to abandon a strong woman, she will never beg you to stay, despite the fact that your departure is breaking her heart. She will never beg for the breadcrumbs of your love and attention and she will never chase you or play your mind games.
This girl won’t sit around, patiently waiting for you to choose her over everyone else, she won’t allow you to compare her to the other women in your life and she won’t ask you to put her first, if you haven’t done it yourself.
6. They’ve been hurt before
Knowing all of this, you might ask yourself why most strong women behave like this when it comes to romance. Why do they appear so difficult to handle and why are they challenging? Why are they so guarded and overly careful when it comes to men?
Well, what you should know is that all of these girls have been heartbroken in the past and that is exactly what shaped them into becoming the women they are today. Each one of them has been through a lot and the last thing they want is to allow another man to hurt them again.
