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:
10. They can handle rejection.
They’re not afraid of the word ‘no,’ they’ve heard it before and they will continue to hear it but that doesn’t stop them from trying, strong women face more rejections because they actually go out and ask for what they want instead of waiting for things to come to them and the more risks they take, the more rejections they’ll face, but these rejections only make them stronger.
11. Most men find them intimidating.
Strong women are not too ‘challenging’ or intimidating as a lot of men think. The thing is, they are not going to make it the sole meaning of their existence. To them love is a bonus, not an all consuming need. They have their own goals, ambitions, and dreams going on. Strong women wants someone to be a part of their lives, but not all of it. They may seem strange but they are still capable of being great partners.
12. They are genuinely busy.
Many strong women are career women also. They tend to lead extremely busy, hectic schedules. Many men see this as playing hard to get, and others think that they are too busy to ever fit a man in their world.
