Gone are the days of women being meek and mousy. These days, women are taking life in a different direction than their predecessors, and it’s making some men a little uncomfortable.
If you are on a mission to create the best life for yourself, then you might be surprised to find that not everyone will like that, especially men.
Here are 10 signs that you are a strong woman who might intimidate men.
1) You Are Your Own Superhero
Just like the song, you are an independent woman. You can do everything for yourself, and wear a killer pair of jeans while you are at it.
Strong women don’t need a man to pick up the pieces of her life: she’s got that covered. Some men don’t know what to do with a woman who doesn’t actually need him.
2) You Know What You Want in Life
Nothing is more intimidating to another human being than being in the presence of someone who knows what they want in life and isn’t afraid to go after it.
Having the guts to take risks to find success is very intimidating to people, especially men who are used to providing a life for women, and not the other way around.
3) You Cherish Honesty and Vulnerability
As a strong woman, you know that it takes a real balance of being honest and letting yourself be vulnerable to the world to find success.
You have to be frank with yourself about your strengths and weaknesses, and you have to be willing to confront those weaknesses. Strong women expect their men to be the same way.
4) You are Comfortable with Intimacy
Strong women aren’t intimidated by being intimate, both physically and mentally. A confident woman is sexy in and out of the bedroom, and some men have a hard time being in a relationship with a woman who is so confident.
5) You Can Read People Well
Men don’t always realize that a strong woman is so strong because she knows herself inside and out. That kind of connection means she can spot the bullshit from a mile away.
When something or someone doesn’t feel right, it’s because she knows that they aren’t in line with her expectations in life and it doesn’t take her long to figure out someone is lying to her.
6) You Respect Others and Demand Respect Yourself
Resilient women not only respect themselves but demand respect from other people. They don’t do this by walking around with a chip on their shoulder though; in fact, just the opposite: they are living their life the way they want, and some men can’t handle that.
Men need to show you respect at all turns because you’ll show him the same kind of respect.
7) You are Intense
Sometimes you are hot, and sometimes you are cold. You love hard, live hard, play hard, work hard. Everything you do is intense.
You are getting the most out of your life. And that’s not how all men want to spend their time, especially when you are in a fighting mood. It’s just too much for some men.
8) You Know Your Worth
You don’t need a man to tell you what your life is worth, and that is awesome. If you want a man in your life, you’ll need to find a strong man who knows your worth too, but it’s not on the top of your to-do list because you are out loving life.
9) You Give Things Your All
Whether you are washing dishes or chairing a board meeting at your company, everything gets 100% of your attention.
That’s how you’ve made it this far and found so much success in your life. Strong women don’t back down from a challenge and are ready to take everything on with 100% of their being.
10) You Encourage Others to Be Their Best Selves
A Strong woman can get the job done. They know that they aren’t perfect, and they are working on improving themselves and their own lives every day.
That’s what makes the happiest. But if you are lucky enough to be in a relationship with a strong woman, you’ll become your best self, because she is working on being her best self. She’ll expect that from you, and you’ll thank her for it in the end.
