5 traits of an independent woman

Nairobi - 5 traits of an independent woman.

She does not wait around for things to happen but makes them happen

If she is interested in you, she will make a move and let you know. If she wants to talk to you, she will not sit around staring at the phone wishing you would call but she will pick up the phone and call. If she wants to go on a date, she will let you know. It can be a bit off putting if you are used to holding the reins but at least with her, she never makes you second guess her intentions or wonder too much. She will just let you know.

She has no time to play games

She is confident enough in herself to know if something is working in her favor or not working at all. She will spot it and she will not wait around trying to force a situation but move on to something that works in her favor. She is confident in the fact that better is around the corner and she can have it. No need to waste time.

She is every aware of herself and her situation

Probably comes from her fast paced life because she is always busy so management of every aspect of her life is very important including her dating life. She is not going to be the one to waste your time or lead you along because she knows if you are not the one for her; it is better t cut you lose for someone else. She will not be afraid of letting you know why and she will not beat around the bush with it. Very aggressive but at least you are not wasting money on dates that are going nowhere.

She will not change to suit your temperament

She is not aggressive because she has had no man’s ‘touch’ but because that is the way she just is. Do not think that after you rope her in you will be able to tame her nature. She is looking for a partner not a ring master. So if you think you cannot handle her now, you will not be able to handle her later because you are not the one that will tame her.

Independent women are not the definition of ‘man-haters’

Do not be confused. Of course there are those women who portray themselves as independent because they do not need a man. That is not a true independent woman. For her she is conscious of herself and knows her weaknesses and limits. She is not against dating neither is she against relationships because she appreciates that balance and welcomes it. She is not afraid of sharing herself with anyone and that will show in her dating life when she is willing to share her interests and passions with you.

She is not high strung or too involved in herself, just get to know her and she might prove to be a very interesting a different individual.
