Strong women are good at handling just about everything life throws at them. Sometimes it’s a juggling act and the struggle is real, but they handle it because they pride themselves and define themselves by their strength and independence. One of the only things that really scares a strong woman is falling in love. This is because it requires her to go outside of her comfort zone in so many ways. It’s such an irony how really strong women are able to overcome really tough times in their career, but find it difficult to allow themselves enjoy the experience of falling in love, especially if they have been hurt before. Many just decide to focus on their career and forget about love.
These are some of the reasons why strong women find it hard to fall in love:
7. They are outspoken and opinionated.
Strong women are not the type to smile, nod and agree with everything a man says. If it were the case, it would have made falling and staying in love easier. When a strong woman disagrees with something, she has no issues speaking her mind. Unfortunately for her date, it may come across as combative, even though for the woman, it is okay to disagree on some things. As a matter of fact, strong women generally like to be challenged intellectually.
8. They hate being second choice.
Strong women can never tolerate being treated like an option. They just won’t allow it! They appreciate complete devotion and commitment and anything less than that is always not okay for them.
9. They are forced to trust a bit.
Even if they can’t fully open the trust vault at first, they know that the guy in question is new and hasn’t done anything to deserve being distrusted. They’re strong, but they’re not heartless, so they have to open up and give him just a little bit of trust, and that’s not an easy thing to do.
