It's not easy, dating a woman who doesn't need saving.As a man, you're only too used to doing that; you love doing that, just like you enjoy the occasional ego boost. That's something that you not only have to understand but, also—and more importantly—need to accept.Does your girlfriend make a fuss every time you do something for her? An independent woman is someone who knows what she wants, and never relies on anyone to finish the job for her.Is she the type who doesn’t like it when you play the dominant male in a relationship? She is a formidable person who doesn’t allow the men in her life to take over her decisions.She doesn't need your shoulder to cry on when the night's too dark and she doesn't need you to walk her home when it's late. She doesn't throw around words like ‘women's rights' and ‘feminism' at the drop of her hat; or start a debate on women's equality every time she's around a man.She's all too used to doing it all on her own for longer than you've been chivalrous to women in general. She doesn't demand respect; she reserves it just by being present the way that she is. When you’ve been living on your own as long as I have (since I was 16), it’s really hard to let go of any control independence, even if it is a little, tiny piece. I like having my own life, my own interests, hobbies, friends, etc. Dating an independent woman can be exciting and scary at the same time…or, so I’m told from the men whom I’ve dated!
Still, that doesn’t mean that she’s not open to being in a committed relationship.
She wants you to make decisions and she wants you to make plans. You have goals, dreams and visions for your future.
There is no better feeling than knowing the woman standing next to you shares your level of ambition and matches your efforts.
Let me go about my day, doing what I need to do and then we can come together later, got it? That doesn’t mean that I have to lose myself in the process though.
I do what the hell I want, when the hell I want and I don’t ask permission from anyone. I have always taken care of myself and had my own life, my own goals and my own path in life.
