1. They don’t settle for the minimum.
Strong women have high demands and if someone does not treat them as they deserve, even if they care about them, they will go away. They don’t compromise on their expectations and they know what kind of people they deserve to be.
2. They are not afraid to express themselves.
They are not afraid to tell someone that they made a mistake or to call them to order because they have just lied. This is why they are often called ” intimidating ” because they know how to defend themselves and they will not deny it.
3. They don’t ‘need’ a man.
Of course, they dream of love and affection, but they don’t need a man to feel complete. For them, love is always a choice ; and not something they are looking for, for fear of being alone or aging. They know how to be satisfied with their own life and love is more a plus than a necessity.
4. They know how to move on.
They learned how to move on, when necessary. They will never find themselves begging for someone to stay or for a second chance. They know they will be fine and they can find someone better.
5. They never allow themselves to become options
Strong women will not tolerate being treated as options or as one of the many women with whom a man has relationships. Commitment and honesty are very important and everything that goes away from them is unacceptable.
6. They don’t play by the “rules”
In life or in love, don’t expect strong women to follow the “love rules” you’re used to or to play it safe. They will surprise you with their audacity and they will never shy away from doing something they really want.
7. They know how to handle rejection.
They are not afraid of the word ‘no’. They’ve heard it before and they’ll hear it again, but that doesn’t stop them from trying. Strong women face more rejections, because they think outside the box and fight for what they want, rather than waiting for things to fall into their mouths. The more risks they take, the more they have to deal with rejections. But these rejections only make them stronger.
8. They ask the tough questions.
They will ask these questions that men tend to dodge. They will ask them where they are and how things are going. They will ask to meet their family and friends and to be involved in their lives. Strong women are passionate and curious in everything, so love is no exception.
9. Their hearts have already been broken.
Even if they act as if they were insubmersible, they have already fallen in love and have already had a broken heart. These sorrows, although they soften them, do not make them indifferent . They still have a lot to give, but they need to know who is worthy and who will only play with them.
10. They do not seek validation from others
If strong women are looking for validation, it is through their successes, their work, their friendships and the way they live their lives. They know the right person will find them when the time comes. They will never let their sentimental status define them or decide their value.
