10 Reasons Why Most Men Can't Handle Strong Women
We all admire them, the strong women in our lives. They may be your sister, your mother, a celebrity, an athlete, or a political figure. Women often become strong because of struggles and pains in their lives. Strong women are independent, brave, resilient, and self-sufficient. These women are very influential; yet, often times these women struggle romantically.
Today we will discuss why most men have difficulty with a strong woman.
1. She Knows What She Wants
A strong woman knows what she wants. She does not depend on a man, or anyone else, in order to obtain it. This can be threatening and intimidating for their romantic partners. Strong women are in no way submissive. It takes a very strong and self-confident man to be a partner with a strong woman.
2. She Doesnít Need a Man to Fight for Her
It is important for men to feel wanted and needed in a relationship. However, strong women have proved repeatedly that they can handle their own battles. Yes, they are capable of love and they show it, but if thereís a problem, they will handle it on their own. A strong woman will fight for both herself and her man. They do not fall into the victim mindset and they will not wait for a man, or anyone, to find a solution for them. This is difficult for some men to handle and it is important that a strong womanís partner walks along side of her and not in front of her.
3. She is Not Intimidated by Intimacy
A strong woman, again, knows what she wants. She will expect her partner to give intimacy ranging from strong conversations to making love. She will be very clear about her expectations. It is important that a strong woman is made to feel the passion and desire from her partner.
4. She Will Require Honesty
To some men, it is difficult to show vulnerability and talk about their feelings. This will not bode well for a strong woman. She will dive right into the issues at hand, discuss her hurt and trauma and will expect her partner to do the same in return. She needs to know that when difficulties arise, her partner will be alongside of her.
5. She Requires Integrity and Consistency
A strong woman needs a partner who is not indecisive, but is confident and respectful. Her partner needs to demonstrate that he has integrity and will love her unconditionally. If she begins to feel disrespected or not loved, she will throw this out on the table for an open discussion. The worst insult to a strong woman is trying to make her feel or appear weak.
6. She Can See Through Lies
Since strong women are honest and trustworthy, they rightfully expect the same out of their partner. She is able to tell right away when her partner is lying. Her partner needs to understand this and be honest, truthful and loyal. Any sense of fakeness or selfishness and the relationship is likely over. If her partner is not honest, they will be kicked to the curb.
7. She Will Not Wait for You
A strong woman will stand by her partner through sickness and in health, but the moment that you begin to show that you are losing dedication to her, she will high-tail it out of there. She is not one to play games. She will not wait for her partner to decide if he is going to stay or if he is going to go. She does not keep secrets and she expects her partner to do the same.
8. Sheís Intense
She has likely been through some very challenging times in her life and has become very powerful and intense because of it. She knows that she can handle anything in her path and this can be very intimidating to a man. She wants to show you all of her scars, tell her battle stories and listen as her partner does the same. If he is not willing to do this, then she will likely dismiss him.
9. She Will Show You Who You Are
It is hard to accept some troubling things about ourselves, whether it be that we get overly frustrated in certain situations or we have a bit of road rage. However, a strong woman will tell her partner exactly what can be improved upon with his personality. She will also then stand by him while he works on himself. She will show him that she accepts him, loves him and helps him project confidence.
10. She Will Love You Unconditionally
A strong woman is faithful and mature. She will not get wrapped up in petty worries and check his phone. She already knows when he is lying, so as long as he does not give her a reason to question his love and dedication, she will dedicate herself to him. She will love him, support him, fight for him and help him in any way that she can.
