Whenever you try envisioning an independent woman in your mind, some images of a really intimidating boss lady in a corporate suit who is making waves in her professional industry is what often comes to mind. And that’s fine.
There are so many independent women out there who are stirring things up in the fields of science, technology, finance, fashion, politics, and so much more. But there is also one aspect of the life of an independent woman which a lot of people tend to forget about – Their Love life.
Everybody thinks that because she has it all going for her, she doesn’t need a man. Most independent women tend to believe that of themselves too, you think a Man has nothing more to offer you because you already have everything you need but that’s not entirely true.
Men, let me shock you… AN INDEPENDENT WOMAN NEEDS A MAN TOO, YES!
Let’s face facts, they need a man’s support too, they need romance, they need intimacy, they crave attention ;Infact they crave alot of attention even though they might not really show it or say it, they need hugs too, they need to wake up to cute morning messages, they need to be showered with gifts as well, they need to be taken to romantic dates, long walks, they love to be heard, they love staying up late and having long laughs, and shared experiences of sorrow, joy, and appreciation for the simple pleasures of life. They crave for all these things too and more but Men seem to neglect this tiny detail and feel because she’s got money, she’s got a good business, she’s got friends, what more can I offer? You can offer love, unconditional and sincere love.
Being an independent woman in this part of world is a hassle. Parents advice their girl child to get a man first before pursuing her career why? Because age is not on our side, most of them get it right and the others end up being an extra burden to their husbands, worst part is; He wouldn’t even treat her any better and then seeing her mates doing well they fall into a phase of depression and regrets. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m not saying we shouldn’t listen to our parents but that Era is gone. It’s much better to have something doing than staying idle and waiting for a Man to come pick you up and on the other hand being independent doesn’t mean you don’t need a Man. Actually, what you need is a Good man!
I can’t speak for all women, but I can tell you that independent women make time for the people who are important; family, friends, and the man in their life.
Independence doesn’t mean she wants to live alone for the rest of her life, doing everything for herself. It doesn’t mean she can’t “time-slot” a man into her life, as some men have feared. Yes, her life is gloriously full, and she wants a relationship. Unfortunately, many of the men don’t understand how that works.
The next time you date a woman with an independent façade, know that deep inside, there probably lives a wounded little girl who sorely wants a relationship. Don’t write her off so quickly. When you extend your warmth, your confidence, and your willingness to be vulnerable, she’ll probably open up to you and be a wonderful partner. She’s looking for a strong man who will embrace her independence and give her permission to let go. She doesn’t want to do it all by herself anymore.
The best relationships are between two independent people with full rich lives. They respect one another and learn from each other. They join forces to become an amazing couple. That’s definitely what this independent woman wants and not to be left alone. Beautiful day ahead.
