It’s not easy loving a strong woman, particularly for weak men.
They do not subdue or diminish who the men around them are, and can be, in and out of a relationship.
Strong women are not too big, too outspoken, too capable to be cared for.

The second negative perception of strong women is that they are intimidating, unlovable, ‘too much’ for their male counterparts, or unable to be handled or loved because of their fierce independence. Strong women are not too self-reliant to need anyone by their side.
