11. She might come off as strong and intimidating. But inside her external disposition, she is a person who wants to be cared for, protected, and shielded by someone. She just needs time to get familiar with the constant support system that you are.
12. When you’re dating a self reliant girl, she will gradually display her vulnerabilities, and her weaknesses and you will frequently get to see her resilient, no-nonsense, opinionated self. Reassure her of your presence. She will open up, slowly but surely.
13. She will be scared of being hurt, being left, being cheated, and being played. She needs you to embrace her in your warm words, to shelter her in your love. One day she will no longer be in fear.
14. Expect her to come off as lacking emotions and sympathy but hold on, she has a heart of gold, and she is kind and considerate. She looks cold on the surface but is a soft, gooey cinnamon roll inside.
Dating a girl used to being on her own is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Don’t let their strength, independence, and resolve intimidate you, because that’s what makes her an amazing person.
