"DON'T criticize her family," says French expat Thibaud Pittie.
Dating a woman who is strong and has her act together is an experience ripe with lessons to be learned. If you are going to fall in love with someone like this, there are going to be some things you should know first. If there is an issue or something bothering her, you're going to know about it.
There are just too many disappointments, disadvantages and even dangers that threat women who pursue such a course of action.
There is no better feeling than knowing the woman standing next to you shares your level of ambition and matches your efforts.
You will never be happier than when you are with a strong woman, because she lives her life with a burning desire to make the best of it.
Seth Shostak In my own relationships, I know that I should break up with someone who doesn't encourage me to be strong and make my own choices and do what's best in my life, so if you're dating someone who doesn't want you to be the best person you can be, you shouldn't be dating them.

If you want something sugarcoated, you should probably go get yourself a cupcake, cupcake. Don't expect to carry on a relationship solely through text messages. Any juvenile attempt to make her jealous by talking about or posting photos with other women will backfire. 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.
Women like this are efficient communicators and the nuances of texting aren't going to cut it. Strong women do not get jealous because they are secure enough in themselves to know what (and who) is worth their time, or what/who isn't. Strong, mature women are worldly, passionate and educated. You will not find a more trustworthy woman than a strong, independent one. Because she chooses what she wants out of life and she holds on to it when she gets it. She has lived her life with passion and excitement for long before she met you.
