Believe it or not, independent and confident women experience a severe dating drought almost every season.
Yes, just as much, if not more than others. It never seems to rain men for our kind.
Let’s face it; we are a different breed. Independence is very intimidating, and we have a lot more to offer you than most other girls.
But, there are some stereotypes to be dismissed and a few other things that us independent ladies need you to know:
1. She is not going to push her beliefs or opinions on you.
Nothing is more annoying than the common misconception that women who are independent are feminist and regularly preach their rights and worth everywhere they go. Hello! We are NOT against the opposite sex. Embrace us.
2. Her independent character does not mean that she will never have any time for you.
Assuming is so annoying of you. Especially if it’s the constant excuse for guys to say, “I just figured you wouldn’t have time.” Being independent does not mean that she never has time for anyone else. How could anyone not need anyone else ever? We all are human, regardless of our gender or character; we all need to be surrounded by other humans.
3. She does want you around, but she is capable of fighting her own battles.
She has a voice and isn’t afraid to use it. She won’t need you to fight any of her battles for her because her capabilities come complete with that trait. Still, that does not mean that she does not want you to fight for her at times.
4. She is comfortable being the only girl at the party.
Phew! You can bring her out with your friends, and she won’t need you to be by her side the entire night. The independent girl actually wants you to spend time with your friends and know that she is completely okay being around people that are not her best friends. She knows how to talk to people without you there to introduce her.
5. Yes, we can seem stubborn. But, it’s nothing against you.
Her independence has caused her sometimes only to see things from her own point of view. Although her stubborn ways may be difficult to deal with, she just needs you to have patience with her.
6. Being her own person and having her success is critical to her.
At least you know you won’t be expected to pay for everything! LOL. This girl knows that nothing is going to be handed to her and even if that were the case, she would rather work hard and achieve things on her own. Although you might find it annoying that she is always at work or busy doing something work related, she just wants you to support and understand that.
Study up, and come love us because independent women are the best!
