Dating can be an exhilarating experience, especially when it comes to dating an independent woman. You know the saying, “A woman needs a partner like a fish needs a bicycle”? That’s definitely true when it comes to an independent woman. So, if she’s dating you, you can be reassured that it’s because she wants to.
An independent woman is an absolute marvel. She is strong, decisive and knows how to challenge life’s obstacles with a headstrong mind and soul. She will have a mind of her own and won’t need to depend on anyone. But no matter how strong these women might be, they also need love and care. Even if they look like they need no one to love them, they do.
It’s going to take time to totally win over a strong woman. Such women have either been hurt before or have been taught to be self-dependent from the start. She can deal with her own problems. She isn’t a damsel in distress, waiting for someone to come and save her. Be it financial, family, or other issues, she will solve them herself. So, she doesn’t need a man to do her job.
However, if you are really up for the prize, take time, and be patient with such a woman.
You need to understand that a woman who has been single for a long time has always been used to doing things by herself. You need to understand that it wouldn’t be easy for her to tell you everything. She will have the tendency to keep things to herself. She will bear the burden of her problems alone because she’s used to it. She’s been used to getting through it alone.
You need to understand that after being single for a long time, she almost forgot how it feels to have someone admire her and love her other than her friends and family.
You have to make the first move. You have to teach her how it is to be in a relationship. You have to teach her how to love and to accept admiration and appreciation. Because after so long, someone does actually admire and like her, and she needs to understand and accept that truth.
Communication is key in any relationship, but especially when dating an independent woman. You can’t take her for granted, or assume she thinks the same way you do. Talk to her.
Additionally, independent women value honesty and transparency in a relationship. Be open and honest about your thoughts, feelings, and intentions. Don’t play mind games or try to manipulate her in any way.
Independent women don’t go into relationships because they crave attention, need validation, or want reassurance. In fact, they’re perfectly content with the lives they’ve built for themselves. So, if she opens the door for you, she must have seen something different about you and that’s your chance to make her feel that she needs you. Because if she doesn’t sense any essence of having you, she might drop the chance. She can come across as intimidating, but don’t let that discourage you. She is as human as anyone else and has her own vulnerabilities and insecurities.
Again, a man who wants to keep a strong-willed woman must have the right amount of courage, patience, and understanding as he lets his sincere intention drive him through.
For all the single, strong, independent, career-driven women out there, these are the things that guys who will be dating you need to understand. It sure will be difficult, but there’s someone out there who will understand. If there’s none, then you should never settle because you’ve built yourself for a long time. You’ve come this far, and you should never go back to how you used to be.
