One of the most exciting things about dating an independent woman is that she’s not afraid to take chances, and she will always feel like a challenge for you. She will surprise you with her strength and intelligence and may keep you on your toes most of the time! She may also push back against some of your ideas which can be frustrating if you’ve never dated someone who wasn’t afraid to stand up for themselves. Here are some pointers on how to deal with her!
Understand that she can take care of herself.
One thing you should know about independent women is that they can take care of themselves. Independent women are capable, strong, and self-reliant, which means they don’t need you to worry about them or try to fix things for them.
Don’t try to make decisions for her (or even give advice) unless she asks for it specifically. Remember: independent women don’t need a man’s interference in their lives–they have their own way of doing things and will appreciate your respect and acknowledgment of that.
Be honest about where you’re at and what you want out of the relationship.
You know that your independent woman is going to be a strong, confident person. She won’t have any problem telling you when she thinks you’re wrong or making her own decisions. But what if she doesn’t know what she wants? What if she’s just as confused about the relationship as you are?
Don’t be afraid of voicing what is on your mind, even if it might make her uncomfortable or angry. It’s better that way than keeping quiet; she will like you to be just as direct as she is.
If there are things about yourself or the relationship that bother you, bring them up early on. This way, you not only avoid conflict but also give yourself time before making any major decisions about where things stand.
Don’t try to change or force her to be something she’s not.
An independent woman is who she is and doesn’t need your help to become someone else. If you love her for who she already is, let that be enough! A good relationship isn’t about changing each other; it’s about accepting each other as they are and loving one another unconditionally.
Allow her to pursue her passions and interests without judgment or criticism, and let her know how proud you are of her accomplishments, no matter how big or small they may be.
As an independent woman, she has a lot of interests and passions. She might be interested in the latest fashion trends or want to learn how to speak a foreign language. She requires a lot of mental stimulation. Whatever she’s interested in, encourage her to pursue those things without judgment or criticism. Let her know that you are proud of her for pursuing what makes her happy.
Trust that she trusts you.
Trust is a very important part of any relationship, but especially when dating an independent woman who doesn’t need your constant reassurance. When you’re with someone who has her own life and knows what she wants out of life, there’s no reason for her to constantly consult with you on every little decision.
She won’t ask your opinion on where she should take her vacation next year because she already knows what place would make her happy! And if she does ask for advice on something important, then by all means, give it freely without questioning why she didn’t come to YOU first instead…
