A strong woman is unfortunately still a rare find in our patriarchal society. Yet, possibly because the odds are generally stacked against them, a truly strong woman is a real force to be reckoned with. She has been through thick and thin and managed to survive.
She is confident in her abilities, yet understands the need (or even the necessity) to let herself be vulnerable at times. It is thе intimate knowledge of her own true inner self that grants her the sort of confidence and self-assurance that most people seem to seek endlessly throughout their lives.
The strong woman knows that one moment you are the teacher, and the next you might be the student. So, how does a woman like this keep a man?
Men in this overbearingly manly world might find it rather difficult to keep a hold on a strong woman. She defeats every expectation that a man has been taught to have about women (even subconscious ones). Only a truly confident and self-assured man can handle a woman like that.
Here are some keys ways how men might struggle to deal with а strong woman:
1. A strong woman doesn’t need a man to fight for her
A man needs to feel wanted. He needs to know that he is battling for the eternal love and admiration of his woman. A strong woman will show you that she loves her man, but she’s also independent and can manage on her own. The strong woman will fight for both of you, but she doesn’t need a man to fight her battles.
2. She knows what she wants
They know what they want and how to get it. She is tenacious, so don’t expect her to sit around and wait for you to make the first move all the time.
3. A strong woman is ok with being vulnerable
Men have a hard time opening up to difficult questions. Strong women dive right into the depth of hurt, traumas, and life-changing experiences. They require a man who can be honest and vulnerable, because they have endured so much in their lives.
4. She is not intimidated by intimacy
She is passionate and not afraid to show it. She will openly demand it of the man; be it in the sack or in conversation.
5. She’ll catch your lies
She can sense lies in an instant, so don’t try to sugar-coat a white lie. Don’t give her bogus explanations.
6. They need integrity and consistency
They want to know that the man they love has integrity, respect, and is a man of his word. If they start to feel that their man is pulling away, they will react accordingly and have no problem letting him go if they feel they are being played.
7. She is intense
She has had to be extremely powerful. She knows she can endure anything else in her path, so this kind of intensity is often difficult for a man to understand.
8. She will not wait for you
This type of woman will follow you to the depth of hell if she knows you are committed to her. However, the moment you start to pull back, she will let you go.
9. She will love you unconditionally
Just like mothers with their children, the strong woman will nurture and love her man fiercely. When she feels that love in return, she will do anything she can to make you feel loved.
10. You learn about yourself being with her
It’s hard to accept the things we don’t like about ourselves when someone points them out. But, a strong woman will mirror those parts in her man that need addressing. She will be there to help show you how amazing and powerful you are. Some men cannot handle the emotional chaos that comes up with this projection.
