I discussed the dating tricks for independent women in my article entitled: Does Your Independence Turn Men Off?
Independent women might be raging with confidence and glowing with success, but some of us have difficulty taking a step back with our independence, which can hinder our dating life. Since this is a two-way street, what can a man do with the independent feisty woman? Men, you’ll have to Step it Up. Be strong and confident in your nature and advances. A strong, independent, and feisty woman needs a man that can keep her on her toes by sweeping her off of them.
Try these tricks:
- Hang Around: Most women who are tough and independent still have a soft nurturing side. Get to know her and see if her feisty nature is something you can dig.
- Teach Us Something: Since you feed off the need to take care of her, you better figure out things that you can take care of. If a woman is a contractor, you can’t build her house. Learn how to fix her car, then. Show her your dedication by the excitement you also get out of learning something new for her and yourself.
- Show Us Up: If we already “know everything”, you have to learn how to communicate with us. Figure it out. She instructs everyone else in her life how to do things or take care of her, or she does it herself. A feisty woman will respect that you can be the man to take care of her. Show her that she does not have to give you a road map, because already have one.
If an independent woman is in the middle of proving herself, she may have a difficult time backing down. Appreciate that she is a dedicated hard-worker and will be the same later down the road for a family.
