You’re very invested in fulfilling your own interests and making sure you’re still doing all the things that make you “you.” Because of this, you come across as really cold sometimes. Forever is a long time, and if you’re gonna be stuck with someone for that long, you definitely shouldn’t settle.
You get annoyed when your guy doesn’t see the need for girls’ night or working late, and this makes your guy think he isn’t important enough for you. The independent woman has a long list of traits she wants in a boyfriend because that’s just the way her life works: She has ambitions when it comes to everything… Falling for an independent girl means you have to be on your A-game at all times.
Dating is about getting to know different people until one special person emerges as the cream of the crop, and you both decide to take things to the next level.
You get to CHOOSE if he is the right man for you, and have the time to find out who he is and how he will treat you.
If you think he’s your only hope, you tend to gloss over things about him that indicate he’s a good match.
These red flags become landmines over time, and suddenly you’ve wasted a lot of love and affection on someone who isn’t deserving of you.
Sadly, most guys just aren’t ready for that kind of pressure.
You will never forget you had a full life before you met the guy you’re seeing, and so, you’re always busy. You know you have your weekly girls’ night every Friday, and you now have to fit in date night somewhere too.
The only thing is, it’s not the center of her world, and that makes guys annoyed.
You love curling up for a cozy night in, watching some Netflix and just being alone with your thoughts.
You find solace in your gym routine to help you work your shit out, and curling up with a good book and some wine after a long day seems absolutely PERFECT.
But when you’re dating someone you’re really into, you kind of want company… You want to sometimes be taken care of because it’s been so long, but you also LOVE the time you get to spend with yourself. You don’t like to get too clingy because if someone was too clingy with YOU, it would just drive you away.
You want a guy who has his own hobbies and interests, who can challenge you and make you mad, but will also treat you right.
