Dating very independent woman
The wives were independently holding down the fort, and the husbands worked hard and were emotionally distant.
Why leave my marriage if there was no better option?
Dating a woman who is strong and has her act together is an experience ripe with lessons to be learned. If you are going to fall in love with someone like this, there are going to be some things you should know first. If there is an issue or something bothering her, you're going to know about it.
You're going to have to stop dancing around issues and start being straight with her, because that's how she's going to be with you.
You will never be happier than when you are with a strong woman, because she lives her life with a burning desire to make the best of it.
She loves deeply and will motivate you to become the best possible version of yourself -- while remaining the same man she fell for in the first place.
My husband was understandably overwhelmed and angered by our son’s disease. I studied all the literature available at the library (there was no internet in those days).
When I left my husband, I didn’t realize how much responsibility I’d be taking on. I want to crawl under a rock and make all my responsibilities disappear.
Women like this are efficient communicators and the nuances of texting aren't going to cut it. Strong women do not get jealous because they are secure enough in themselves to know what (and who) is worth their time, or what/who isn't. Strong, mature women are worldly, passionate and educated. You will not find a more trustworthy woman than a strong, independent one. Because she chooses what she wants out of life and she holds on to it when she gets it. She has lived her life with passion and excitement for long before she met you.
Sure, some texts throughout the day to keep in touch will work just fine, but your primary mode of communication will be over the phone or face-to-face (as it should be). If she is going to fully commit to you, she expects the same in return -- no games here. They are willing to have real conversations about real issues, and while there might be a "Real Housewives" episode playing in the background, her mind is still going a mile a minute about things that really matter. She probably has a stressful job that requires her to spend the day making decisions or dealing with other people's nonsense. Dating a strong woman is like strapping a jetpack to your back. When you are what she wants, she will give you her everything. Along this journey she developed hobbies, interests and has had unique experiences. When you are with a strong woman, there is no such thing as being bored.
It was lonely, losing my husband to his anger and depression after our son died.
I learned to do everything myself I stopped asking for support because my husband was no longer capable of giving me what I needed.She is a problem-solver and she wants you to be, too.
