Strong women — you know one and you’ve probably even dated one in your lifetime. She is the epitome of ‘no-nonsense’, and she does not settle for anything less than perfect in a partner.
If you’re dating a strong woman, you may already know what she likes and dislikes as she may have made it amply clear. But in case you still aren’t aware, here are seven things strong women will definitely not put up with.
A strong woman knows how to command respect and respect those around her. She cannot stand you being disrespectful to her or the people around you. Learn to be nice to everyone around you if you want to win her heart.
When she says no, she means it and expects you to respect her for it. If you curtail her freedom and try and have your way with her, you’ll surely be shown the way out in no time.
For her, equality is a vital element in every relationship, and she believes in treating everyone around her with a sense of equality. You cannot expect her to do all the chores or be on 24×7 baby duty. Shared responsibilities are always the way to go.
Not supporting her dreams
A strong woman is usually an ambitious woman. She wants to be motivated to achieve her dreams and it’s a bonus if you provide her with a source of motivation. Belittling her ambition is the worst thing to do to her.
Not being expressive enough
While the world sees her as the resolute woman that she is, you are one of the only people who may have seen her vulnerable side. While grand gestures of love may not be her style, be sure to at least express your love in small ways now and then.
Listening to each other is the cornerstone of nearly all relationships. And she expects nothing less from you. If you ignore her and don’t hear her out to often, she is sure to see red flags every time you enter the room.
Strong women thrive on honesty and expect the same high level of truthfulness from you. She is a bloodhound when it comes to detecting lies and if she senses anything but the truth, you’re definitely a goner.
