If you are in love with a girl who is used in spending time on her own and doesn't want to change that, there's no reason for you to panic. Dealing with an independent woman is hard but you really won't regret trying. Because independent women are smart and fun to be around. So if such an independent girl has chosen you to be her partner, then at least you should be proud; it's not easy for an independent girl to be in a relationship but if she's chosen to do so, then it must mean she really likes you.
So here are 5 things you need to know about a girl who loves spending time alone:
1) She won't be telling you everything she does in her everyday life.
Expect her to do her own thing often and without letting you know, at least at first. It’s not that you don’t matter; it’s just that she’s learned to love doing what she wants, when she wants, and without asking permission or informing anyone. As she spends time alone regularly, she has picked up hobbies and activities that she enjoys doing alone, like running or reading. Be proud of her for her interests, and encourage her to keep pursuing them.
2) She will be reserved at the beginning.
To start with, she will be reserved about the things that are important to her. However, the more you get to know her, the more you will find out. When she is fully open with you, you can be proud to be one of the very few people she chooses to be close to. She’ll also probably want to take things slowly because she’ll not be used to all the attention. Don’t think she doesn’t like you enough, she probably likes you a lot; it’s just all new to her.
3) She is a fan of actual conversations.
She expects you to actually listen to her, not just stare vacantly at her face when she's talking. Because she will notice that you're thinking about how much shit you have to do at work tomorrow or what body part you're going to work out at the gym in the morning, and she's not about to repeat herself.
4) There is no need to distrust her.
Independent women are loyal. They expect honesty and commitment from you, but they are more than willing to return it with the same fierce passion they apply to every other aspect of their lives. You will not find a more trustworthy woman than a strong, independent one. Why? Because she chooses what she wants out of life and she holds on to it when she gets it. When you are what she wants, she will give you her everything.
5) She wants you, but she doesn't need you.
That's right, an independent woman is not needy. And that's fine. Should be at least. She has learnt how to always make it on her own, so don't expect her to ask everything from you. But that doesn't mean she doesn't want you. She wants your company and when she does, you will know. You just have to respect the fact that she's used in getting by on her own.
