Being a strong woman is a process. So she’s been through a lot of tough times, challenges and obstacles in her life. She’s fought through all those times and in return she has turned out to be the self-sufficient, independent woman she is. Having come through, she knows her power. She knows that she can endure anything else in her path, but this kind of intensity is oftentimes difficult for a man to understand. It’s intimidating because of all the emotions and thoughts that come with this type of persona. The strong woman is willing to share her scars, and expects you to do the same. There are no secrets in her world.
- A STRONG WOMAN WILL NOT WAIT FOR YOU.
A strong woman will be 100% committed to the relationship when she knows your intentions. But the minute you start pulling away, she will also act accordingly. She doesn’t like to waste her time over a man who can’t even decide what he wants. So when she knows you are playing games, she’ll communicate, heal from the breakup and get her head back into the game.
- A STRONG WOMAN WILL LOVE YOU UNCONDITIONALLY.
A strong woman is faithful and she is very committed to whatever her relationships are. It’s more like a relationship of a mother and a child, the woman will nurture and love her man fiercely. When she feels that love in return, she will do anything she can to make him feel loved and admired. The strong woman in your life will support you, help you, and fight for you to get what you deserve. Some men can’t handle this kind of unconditional love. They often get frightened by the intensity and depth of giving. This confusion leads some men to flee from a strong woman. If this happens, regardless of how deeply she loved you, she will also let you go. She knows her worth.
- A STRONG WOMAN WILL SHOW YOU WHO YOU ARE.
It’s hard to accept the things we don’t like about ourselves and when someone points them out some people tend to just defend themselves instead of working on them. A strong woman will speak up about those parts in her man that need addressing. She will also be there to help show you how amazing and powerful you are. She will be your biggest fan and the most honest critic who will stand by you and show you pure acceptance and confidence. Some men cannot handle the emotional chaos that comes up with this type of demeanor. Thus, the relationships between strong women and the weak men doesn’t work out. They won’t even make it past the first few dates. Weak men don’t know what to do with the honesty, strength, intelligence, and independence that is portrayed by a woman of strength.
On the other hand, a strong man, who is likely raised by a strong woman, knows how to either deal with the dark nights of the soul that arise in any relationship, or leave. Barry Paul Price says, “Dating a strong woman is not something every guy can handle. He has to be confident in himself as a person, and as a man. Men must feel capable of meeting a woman’s needs. Traditionally, we did that providing financial security and physical protection. More recently, as women have expressed themselves with more independence and toughness, men aren’t sure how or when they’re needed by their woman. He ends up feeling unsure of his value and significance in the relationship. Many women tell me their man’s emotional support is just as important as financial and physical contributions. Unfortunately, men are not used to identifying masculinity with giving emotional support.”
Do you have the strength to support your woman of strength in the way she most needs it? To be a part of a team and be go-getters walking and supporting by the side of each other?
