8 Things A Strong Woman Will Never Tolerate In A Relationship
Once you have a relationship with a strong, independent woman, you may be wondering how to keep her. She needs enough space to spread her wings and do things on her own, but giving her that space can be intimidating. The key is to trust her enough that once she’s done saving the world, she will come back to you at the end of the day.
A strong woman has high standards and clear morals. If you can not respect her, she’ll move on. If you are in a relationship with a strong woman, here are 8 things she absolutely will not tolerate:
Respect goes in a two-way relationship. Disrespect is the most terrible thing you can do to sabotage your relationship with a strong woman. A strong woman knows her value and she will not tolerate being treated disrespectfully.
Also, trivializing her opinion surely counts as disrespect. All of us are entitled to a respectful attitude from our better halves. The best thing a man can do is treat her the way he wishes to be treated. Of course, it’s difficult to estimate what a woman expects from a man. We’re all different. To avoid complications, it is advisable to communicate as much as possible to find out what is good for both.
2. Trying to Control Her
When one partner tries to control the whole relationship, things become unbalanced and can quickly become ugly. A strong woman is used to taking care of herself and handling things on her own. So, do not try to make decisions for her or take the reins in every aspect of the relationship. This does not mean that she wants total control either. There should be an equal balance between the two of you, along with excellent communication.
3. Pushing Her Boundaries
Knowing and respecting the morals, values and personal boundaries of your partner are extremely important. Strong women know their self-esteem and have no difficulty saying “no”. She will never tolerate anyone who tries to break her values or morals for selfish reasons. She will expect better from you, and if you can’t respect her boundaries, she’ll move on.
A strong woman will never tolerate a cheating partner and you will never get a second chance. If you betrayed her once and she caught you, do not waste your time explaining. She will immediately end the relationship because she wants to have a partner who appreciates her as a person. Your insecurities are to blame and she will never blame your behavior on herself.
5. Being Negative Toward Her
Everybody sometimes has a bad day, but a strong woman knows how to pull herself up and get up when she falls. Being in a negative state is not just unattractive, but it also pulls down the people around you. If you are constantly negative toward your partner and her ideas, thoughts, and opinions, she won’t tolerate it for long.
6. Not Supporting Her

Do not think that a strong woman will continue to tolerate a partner who has no interest in helping her achieve her dream. For that matter, she does not want you to trample her heart either. Support her desires or a strong woman will be looking to leave the relationship. If you do not get her back and really believe in her and motivate her, she does not need you in her life.
Strong women appreciate most people who can take her to the next level and help her see things she may not be able to do, help her to do things she wondered if she could. As confident as she is, sometimes she becomes nervous and it is up to you to help her. Remember that her worst mistake is not who she is, but something she can learn from. If you do not support her and be by her side through her achievements, she’ll find someone else who’s willing to be standing in the front row, happy to watch her succeed.
7. Treating her with inequality
A strong woman wants equal rights in all aspects of the relationship. And if she needs your help from time to time, tell her that she can always count on you. Make your relationship balanced in all parts including gender, social status, education, income, etc. and she will appreciate all the respect you give her.
8. Emotional constipation
A study examined women in lesbian relationships has discovered that most strong women wanted two things. The first one is independence in decision making and the second is having a deep emotional connection and communication with their partners. However, both of these things are also desirable in heteros-e.x.u.a.l relationships too.
Women are usually more emotionally intelligent than men, so they can pay more attention to hidden verbal and body language clues that can reveal emotions. Strong women prefer their partner to express both positive and negative emotions and they are very likely to understand why you feel that way and may even offer you help.
