The strong woman will fight for both of you, but she doesn’t need a man to fight her battles. They don’t sit and wait, as victims, for a man to find the solution.

She will not wait for the man to make the first move.
Strong women know what they want, how to attain it, and remember all that they had to endure to get whatever they have. Strong women have tenacious personalities that can be extremely intimidating for some men. They love wholeheartedly and also can continue exploring the world, with a man or not.
