While there are plenty of fish in the sea, I’m sure you’ve discovered by now that not every fish is for you. So, when you’re looking for that perfect match, who are you drawn to? Here are 10 reasons you may want to consider dating a strong woman.
1. She is proud of who she is, but won’t be easily offended
Because a strong woman has a high self-esteem, she isn’t likely to take things personally. She knows who she is and where she stands, so she will be able to view comments directed at her from a powerful perspective. Don’t think this means she’ll stand for being insulted. She’ll be quick to let you know when you’ve mislabeled her.
2. She expects you to be confident, but will love your strength
Strong women don’t just value personal strength, they value strength in others as well. She doesn’t want you to become weak so she can stand tall. Instead, she wants you to be an equal match, displaying as much strength as she does. This means you won’t have to weaken yourself in her presence. You’ll be able to voice your opinions and disagree with her if you feel differently than she does, without ruining the relationship.
3. She wants you to blindly adore her, but will give you an adult relationship
Being petty, jealous, or immature isn’t her thing. What a strong woman values is a grown-up relationship that deals with life in a mature way. Her confidence that you adore her will keep her from being overly worried, and she will have the same expectations of you. She isn’t likely to be involved in an abusive relationship.
4. She is forward and blunt, but you will always know where you stand with her
A strong woman will let you know when you’ve upset her, so you won’t have to play the guessing game. This can be a great asset for resolving conflict and getting to the bottom of issues in your relationship, which can help to prevent them from growing into something more intense in the future.
5. She has high standards, but will help you to achieve more
Because she has such high standards for herself, she’ll push you to the same level, coming up with ideas and strategies and encouraging your self-belief. She believes that you can accomplish anything, and she’ll be your biggest supporter along the way.
6. She is tough, but she won’t back down from difficult situations
When times get tough and you need someone by your side, she’ll be able to stand strong right next to you, so you can stay strong yourself — or have a moment of weakness. This doesn’t mean she won’t ever be weak herself, but she’ll show true strength when it’s needed.
7. She is determined, but will keep things interesting
Strong women know who they are and what they want, and because of that they are constantly changing and growing as they overcome bigger and better challenges. This will keep your life exciting and entertaining as you face new challenges and discover new ideas.
8. She expects authenticity, but will give you her heart
Her strong sense of self and unwillingness to have a fake relationship will keep the relationship authentic. She doesn’t want to settle for second best, so she will fight for a deep and intimate relationship.
9. She has her own opinions, but offers a lot to conversations
Being full of her own ideas and opinions makes her a great person to engage in conversation with. She’ll be able to express her opinions thoughtfully and with conviction, so you can enjoy a give-and-take when talking.
10. She is self-motivated, but she will motivate you as well
Because a strong woman has to develop a motivational attitude towards herself to accomplish her goals, she has it down to a science when it comes to motivating you. She’ll be your biggest supporter and will defend and promote you to others.
Dating a strong woman will push you to a new level of maturity and emotional depth, as they challenge you to love them vigorously. Your efforts wont be wasted, as strong women are loyal and committed to their partners long-term, and can offer a fulfilling and exciting relationship.
