24 Reasons Strong Women Won’t Date You

Strong women are amazing. We are outgoing, charismatic, fun, passionate, together, independent and loving. Most men if not all dream of dating a strong woman. Strong women are desired because of all of the wonderful qualities she possesses. A lot of men don’t understand why they haven’t had success finding and or dating a strong woman. We must first understand why you are not getting the time of day in the first place. I’ve put together a list of 24 reasons why a strong woman might not want to date you. Read on to better your odds and level the playing field. Eventually you might just land the woman of your dreams.

1.   Fearless

Strong women are not afraid to tell you what you did wrong. Not afraid to call someone out on their lies. Not afraid of you or anyone else. They know how to admit their faults and apologize for mistakes. They also have no problem letting someone else know about their poor decisions or wrong doings.

2.    High Expectations

Strong women have high expectations and high standards. Even if they like you and the sex is great, if you are not treating them the way they deserve, they will walk away.

3.    Move on

Strong women know how to let go of the things that no longer serve them or bring them joy. They have no problem letting go of someone who isn’t adding value to a relationship.

4.    No Man Needed

Strong women crave love and affection. They are good at giving and showing it but they will never need a man to complete them. Love will always be a choice to them; not something they’re looking for out of fear of being alone or getting old.

5.    Never Settle

Strong women will not tolerate being treated like an option. Being part of a bunch of women you are dating, does not interest them. Strong women know what they want and deserve in a relationship. They want to be put on a pedestal and treated with respect.

6.    Rules are for breaking

In love or in life, don’t expect them to follow the rules. Don’t expect strong women to follow any dating practices you’re used to or play it safe. Strong women thrive on risk taking and breaking the norms and dating is no different.

7.    Strong women can fight their own battles

Strong women can stand up anytime for themselves and will not hold back. They are used to fighting their own battles and do so proudly. A strong woman holds her own in conversations, arguments and negotiations. She doesn’t need you to fight for her or stand up for her unless they want you to.

8.     No compromising

Strong women won’t compromise their standards for you. They know what kind of person they deserve to be with. If you were an outgoing, hard working individual who has slowly let themselves go or neglected the person you sold a strong woman on, they will not be sympathetic or make an exception. Your ethics are what attracted her to you and your laziness will quickly detach her from you.

9.    Surprise!

Strong women will surprise you by how daring and bold they are. She will never shy away from anything she truly wants. She can have fun doing anything and she knows how to make any situation a whole lot more exciting and entertaining.

10. Content with their own lives

Strong women are satisfied with their own lives. Love is a sweet addition not a necessity for them. They always want more and strive to be better versions of themselves. They are just as happy and content without you in it.

11.    Confident confidence!

Strong women are overconfident that they will be fine and that they will find someone better than you. They are confident in themselves and their ability to perform and master any craft.

12.    Rejection

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 they go out and get it. The more risks they take the more they get rejected. Rejection doesn’t depress them or hinder them but instead fuels their fire and desire for more. They don’t waste their time on things that don’t serve them. If someone rejects them they can easily move on without a second thought.

13.   No? No problem

Strong women are not scared of the word ‘no,’. They’ve heard it before, and they will continue to hear it, but that doesn’t stop them from trying.

14.    Who? What? When? Where? Why?

Strong women will ask the questions that men like to evade. They have no problem asking where they stand and where things are going. On a first date, they will ask deep questions about family. Maybe even questions about financial acumen or any other sticky uncomfortable questions. They aren’t afraid to get to know people or know where they stand.

15.    Did you say passion?

Strong women are passionate and curious in all aspects of their lives. They are passionate about what they do and who and how they love. A strong woman loves with intensity and an immense passion for which there is no comparison.

16.    Heartbreak Hotel

Even though they act like they’re unbreakable, they’ve fallen in love and gotten heartbroken before. Because they love with such passion and such commitment they often find themselves disappointed or hurt. They can bounce back but a broken heart takes time.

17.    Wise beyond their years

Strong women are wise and smart. They just need to know who is worthy of it and who is just playing with their hearts. She cares a great deal. Often, she juggles so much that she sometimes forget to relax and smell the flowers.

18.    No validation necessary

Strong women look for validation from their success, their work, their friendships and how they lead their lives. They don’t need a significant other to tell them they are doing a good job. It’s nice to receive compliments but strong women know that actions speak louder than words.

19.    Patience in love

Strong women know that the right person will find them when the time is right. They don’t let their relationship status define their worth or define them.

20.    Hard to get

No matter how sweet talking, well dressed, put together you are, strong woman might reject your proposal. Living busy, full lives is important to them. They don’t have time for insincere men or men who aren’t committed to getting to know them. It takes time and patience to get to know a strong woman but it’s worth the wait.

21.    High quality standards

If you don’t meet their standards they will reject you. Strong women usually have organized, clean, well put together home environments. They take care in the way they dress and carry themselves. If you dress like a slob, your home is a mess and you don’t pride yourself on your appearance, a strong woman will toss you to the curb.

22.    Straight to the point

There’s no beating around the bush for strong women. Strong women prefer a straight to the point, no holds barred approach that leaves no room for misinterpretation. They are direct communicators. Strong women don’t like to waste your time just as much as they don’t want to waste their own.

23.   Busy Busy Busy!

Strong women tend to lead busy lives. They have full schedules, lots of activities, commit themselves fully to their work and/or home life. If you want to get to know her you need to respect her busy schedule. By working with them to find an optimal time to get together, you will have success.

24.    They have a life

One thing you can guarantee is that a strong woman isn’t a needy woman. She had friends before she met you and she will have friends while she is with you. You are not the center of her universe. Even though she makes you feel special, she has other things going on. Jealousy is not appreciated with a strong woman. She does not have time to deal with insecure men and their jealous nature.

A strong woman has a deep level of independence, deep passion, power, and honesty. Only a man with integrity and respect can truly love her and earn her love and respect in return.
