Tips dating independent women
It doesn’t mean I can’t “time-slot” a man into my life, as some men have feared.
Yes, my life is gloriously full, AND I want a relationship. Before my divorce, I was more of a follower than a leader, more passive than active.
I can’t speak for all women, but I can tell you that this independent woman makes time for the people who are important; family, friends, and the man in my life.
Independence doesn’t mean I want to live alone for the rest of my life, doing everything for myself.
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).
I became an expert in Fanconi Anemia, because most doctors had no idea what it was or how to treat it.

There’s a certain type of man that can date an independent woman, but if he’s doing any of these things, the relationship is not likely to last long. And if you try and throw her down for them, you can kiss her goodbye.
Like many women, I stayed married because I thought it was as good as it gets.
