There’s a general misconception that strong women don’t like men and relationships and that they’d rather be single for the rest of their life than get married.
While it’s true that strong, independent, confident women don’t need a man so as to feel happy and emotionally fulfilled, they do want a man who will be as strong as they are and who will be able to keep up with them in every aspect of life.
They want to experience raw, deep, genuine, once-in-a-lifetime kind of love. Yet, most strong women have a hard time falling in love.
I see myself as a strong woman, and I’ve been in a couple of meaningful, fulfilling relationships. Yet, they all failed. Trying to figure out the reasons for this, I’ve talked to other badass women I know, and we’ve come up with several answers.
The main reason why strong, independent women have a tough time falling in love is that we don’t want to compromise our values.
We have principles and values that govern our lives. We know what’s morally good and what’s wrong. We don’t let anyone make us go against beliefs and principles.
We don’t trust anyone unless they prove they deserve our trust. We want actions, not words. We want to know our guy is completely honest with and loyal to us. We know how it hurts when someone betrays your trust and therefore we do our best to keep our hearts safe.
We don’t need anyone to lead us through life. We know what we want and how to get it. We have clear goals and dreams and work hard towards them. We’re not afraid to accept challenges and take risks. Because we’ve failed many times, but also stood up, and firmly continued walking towards our goal.
We don’t like flaky people. We don’t want a man who will say one thing and do another. A man who will make promises and then fail to keep. A man who is afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve and ashamed to show his vulnerable sides. A man who will make us doubt his feelings for us. A man who will be afraid to love and be loved.
But most importantly, we’re not afraid of being single. Let’s say this right here and right now. Being single doesn’t mean being lonely. We’ve been alone for a longer period of time, and we’ve never felt lonely, depressed, unworthy, miserable. Remember that!
We’re not afraid of being single. We’re afraid of being with a man who won’t treat us the way. not we, but everyone deserves to be treated. A man who will pretend to be someone else. A man who will use all kinds of manipulation tactics and mind games to make us fall in love with him.
We’re not afraid of single – we’re afraid of being with the wrong person.
