Independent women should be considered a treasure to be with for many reasons. If you are lucky enough to be a partner to an independent woman, you know she’s playing for keeps. Independent women don’t need a partner to thrive so when they find someone special, they allow themselves to be a part of your life. The love is legitimate and her commitment to you is a coveted gift that you should never take for granted. She takes care of herself and has the strength to take care of you too if necessary.
Here are 6 things all independent women want their partners to know:
1. We Thrive When We Feel Free
If you are with an independent woman, one of the most important elements to the success of your relationship is allowing her to be who she is. Accept that your partner has a greater need for feeling free. It in no way means they love you less, just because they might not want to hang out with you every night. If she wants to go on a vacation alone or with her girlfriends, she’ll appreciate it when you allow her the freedom to do so.
2. We Stay Close to Our Partner When We’re Given Space
Independent women that are given the space they need to thrive will tend to stay closer to their partner by choice. They will appreciate that you honor their independence and give you much in return. Independent women have a good sense of self and have so much to offer. What they expect in return is that you believe in their ability to take care of themselves and that you support them on their journey. She will appreciate the space you allow her and through your actions, she will know you truly love her.
3. We Like Taking Care of Ourselves
Independent women like taking care of themselves; it’s a personal choice and personality trait that they’re proud to have. Going for walks, to a movie or even to dinner by themselves is easy for them. They buy their own jewelry, open doors for themselves and pump their own gas. They succeed in finance and in relationships because they depend on themselves. She is extremely proud to make her own money and make her own way in the world. She will rarely, if ever, rely on you for things she can do herself. Many times, she will do more for you than she expects you to do for her.
4. We are Emotionally Stable
Women who live their life the way they want to are emotional stable. She doesn’t sweat the small stuff and won’t let little things in life break her confidence. She knows who she is and is comfortable with herself. Due to her true and genuine nature, she is comforting to be around. When she does make a mistake (because she’s a risk taker), she won’t put blame on others. She is accountable for her own life and accepts situations.
5. We Honor Your Space
As an independent woman, she will honor you and your space. She will give you all the Independence you need and support your personal endeavors. She will do this because she knows how it feels to her to have that support. She believes in your strengths and you ability to handle life, just as she does.
Although independent women value their independence, they still require the same amount of support and love that any woman wants. Independent women also love deeply, passionately and offer support to their partners. They don’t play games as a rule and are genuine people that want the best for the people they love. They don’t suck energy from you or take advantage of you. If your partner is an independent woman, she is with you because she wants to be and not because she needs to be.
