Most often, women complain that as soon as a man realizes that next to him is strong and independent, he leaves such a relationship, and why? And because many women do not understand that being strong and independent is not the same with abrasive and apathetic. From the outside, it looks like “I don’t need a man,” and women persist in pretending that they have no interest in the man they meet, pushing him away, and then wonder what happened. Usually, this is followed by many statements about how men "cannot cope with her character," but in reality no one will be interested in feeling like a second plan in your life.
Nevertheless, if you understand that you are a loving, caring, but at the same time strong woman, then not every man can be with you. For a serious relationship in which you will be comfortable, the man must have special qualities that minimize all quarrels and scandals in your couple.
He knows what he wants
For both men and women, it is difficult to be in a relationship where only one of the partners has a goal, this causes tension in the couple, especially when it comes to a woman. Your man will not understand why you work so hard. Why do you get up at 5 am to go to the gym. And when your affairs will extend also on the days off, it will provoke grandiose scandal. A man will be comfortable with a woman who is purposeful and ambitious, only if he takes a similar path for himself to understand and appreciate her behavior.
A man who constantly needs praise or approval will most likely not find what he needs alongside a strong and independent woman. You will not doubt yourself and in your choice and want your man to be the same. Yes, you will most likely show him love and affection - because you care about him and want him to feel loved - but you cannot constantly remind him of how necessary he is in your life. Strong men will not expect this from a woman of this caliber, but nevertheless, you should not build yourself an "iron lady", everyone wants to feel loved and important.
He respects privacy
Women who focus on their goals do not waste time looking for approval from others. They live in the present and are too busy to worry about what other people think. A man who deliberately goes to a relationship with a woman of this type must be prepared that they will not be public. In the generation of social networks, confidentiality is difficult to find, but for a relationship with a mature, independent woman who will work in the long run, this should still be a priority.
He will be honest
A man who is a rag will never be able to hold the attention of a strong woman and he will never give her the stability she needs. If your man will blindly praise you for all that you are doing, provided that you have failed, then it is unlikely that you will perceive him as a man. A man who will go well with a woman of this type will know when to be flexible with her and when to stand his ground. And it will cause much more respect.
He will take over the reins
Just because a woman can be responsible from 9 to 5, from Monday to Friday, does not mean that she wants the same responsibilities in her relationship. In the end, many women still appreciate men who immediately make it clear that their word is law, that you are a woman next to them and not a commander in a skirt. A strong and independent woman needs that man who, despite all her strength, will see her as a lady and care for her like a real knight.
He is not jealous
Power men are taboo for strong women. Strangulation or total control, as the approach to this type of women is the fastest way to ensure that she will push you away immediately. She is busy and does not need (and does not want) to be constantly held by the hand. Such women feel better next to men who live their lives together, and not with those who are trying to remake them.
He does not belittle
When your man says how good you are at something, remember: the right man next to a strong woman will never finish a sentence in such a way, “this is very good, well, for a woman. “A man who is ready to build a relationship with an independent woman will see you as equal. It means respecting and appreciating your opinion, as well as openly telling you yours. It means being able to have deep, meaningful conversations and really listen to your point of view.
He will always support
As Mark Twain once said: “Stay away from people who are trying to lower your ambitions. Small people always do this, but really great ones make you believe that you too can become great. ”The same applies to relationships. Men who are strong and confident will have no problems when support is required. They will not betray your trust and will not dissuade you from the life you want to live. The right type of man for a strong woman will know when to stand in front of you, if you need protection, behind you, if you need support, and next to you if you need a teammate.
It’s hard to find a balance that allows relationships to flourish when two strong, independent people start to be together. Men need to understand that they can be with a woman who lives her life and does not sacrifice her masculinity. And women must understand that to be strong and independent does not mean to be powerful or abrupt. Men and women are equally worthy of respect without the need to prove their superiority over each other. Love is a team sport, and with a partner on your side, you will always win the game.
