“She made broken look beautiful
and strong look invincible.
She walked with the Universe
on her shoulders and made it
look like a pair of wings.”
― Ariana Dancu.
Strong women have been through a lot in their lives. They can tolerate the pain, stand through their past struggles and remain independent even at times when they are on the verge of losing everything or have lost everything.
No matter how much misfortune or injustice they have faced, they will never depend on anyone else. This makes it extremely difficult for a lot of men to handle strong women.
Why is this so? Here are your answers
(1) A strong woman is not a damsel in distress:
Most men love to be a hero for their women by saving them, by helping them. But strong women don’t need men to fight for them or to save them. They have won their own battles and know how to manage them. So, if a strong woman comes across a man like this, she doesn’t care much because she doesn’t need him at all.
(2) Honesty is one of the key elements a strong woman wants in her partner:
Men tend to keep secrets and often become dishonest. A lot of women put up with them because they love their partner. But a strong woman values honesty. She wants her partner to practice it in the way she does. No matter how much she loves her partner, she would not think twice before leaving him if he turns out to be dishonest.
(3) It’s not easy to lie to a strong woman:
A strong woman can detect lie easily. So, if a man is trying to play smart, it won’t work. This will turn her off in return. So, if a man really wants to be with a strong woman, he will have to be completely honest with her.
(4) A strong woman is focused and knows what she wants in life:
Most men tend to control their woman’s choices, give advice regarding what they should do, etc. But a strong woman knows what she wants from her life. She doesn’t need anyone validation for this. Whatever she is doing is absolutely her decision. So, men who are extremely interfering will not be able to be with a woman like her.
(5) A strong woman is intense:
Not just physical but a strong woman is extremely intense when it comes to emotional and intellectual intimacy. This passion is most difficult for most men to deal with. They either feel shy or lack that passion themselves to match with their woman’s.
(6) A strong woman needs a man she can count on always:
A strong woman doesn’t need a man to depend on but also, she can’t be with someone who is always dependent on her. For a strong woman, her partner should be supportive and strong like her, independent like her and at the same time, compliment her.
(7) A strong woman is extremely committed:
A strong woman values commitment in the way she values honesty. Once she is in a relationship, she will give her level best and will remain loyal. But if she is not reciprocated, she would be strong enough to call off the relationship.
(8) A strong woman doesn’t wait for a particular man:
For a strong woman, love comes on its own. She doesn’t look for love. She lets love find her. If anyone tries to play games with her so that she falls for him, she will move away. She is bold enough to show interest in men but will love him if his feelings are genuine. Else, she knows that life is big enough to explore.
(9) A strong woman is extremely passionate:
The fire of passion burns in a strong woman. She is extremely enthusiastic, dreams big and enjoys exploring the world. It takes a lot of energy and determination to cope up with her. She has become strong because she has faced challenges and have been able to come out successful. If a man lacks such skills, she will look for other pastures.
(10) A strong woman has deep insights:
A strong woman is not scared, to tell the truth about their partners because they are not scared of losing anything. A lot of men can’t deal with these truths; it’s hard for them to accept such truths. This makes their relationship bitter and they find it difficult to love their strong partner.
