1. She is incredibly independent.

The first thing you need to know about a stubborn woman is that she is used to being on her own and is incredibly independent. She has her own life and her own way of doing things and she’s definitely not quick to shift things around in order to make room for anyone new, including you. Before you fall in love with a stubborn woman, you need to be ready to give her space and time to be alone. Insecurity and clinginess will not work for her.

2. She won’t be afraid to tell you when you’re being an ass.

You’ll never have to worry if you’ve pissed her off because she’ll just flat out tell you. She isn’t into beating around the bush or dropping subtle clues for you to pick up on. That’s not her style. She’s upfront and you’ll always know when you’ve upset her, which makes fixing things a whole hell of a lot easier.

3. She can be a lot to handle.

Not going to lie, a stubborn woman can be a lot to handle. Arguing is her love language. She is headstrong. She will push you. She will always tell you the truth, even if you don’t want to hear it. But you’ll also find that these are the things that make you love her.

4. She hates being wrong, but she will admit when she is…eventually.

It will take her some time, but she’ll eventually come around and admit to her mistakes. After all, she’s stubborn, not unreasonable.

5. She is passionate.

If you’re going to love a stubborn woman, prepare to be with someone who is passionate as hell. She defends what she believes in with all of her heart. She loves hard and laughs loudly. She cares deeply and isn’t afraid to show it.

6. She’s loyal as hell.

If you’re loved by a stubborn woman, you’re lucky because she’ll try her best to never let you down. She’ll always tell you the truth and will defend you if she ever hears anyone talking shit. She’ll stay with you through thick and thin. If you’re looking for a fairweather woman, look elsewhere.

7. Playing the games of modern dating is a surefire way to make her lose interest in you real quick.

Because she’s upfront about the way she feels, she thinks the games associated with modern dating are cowardly and will be majorly turned off if you play by those rules. The literal second she senses you’re messing with her, she’ll check out and be over you. She’s not into games. She’s into honesty and loyalty.

8. She’ll take longer to fall than most, but when she does, she’s all in.

She’s protective of herself, of her feelings, and of her life, so it will take her a little longer than most to fall in love. A stubborn woman will never let you in right away. But once she knows she can trust you, once she understands that you’re not messing around, she’ll be all in and ready to commit to you fully. A stubborn woman is a woman who loves intensely and will be one of the best relationships of your life. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
