When you fall in love with an independent girl, the kind of girl who is used to be only her own and likes it that way, you have to know that she is fiercely protective of her lifestyle and her time.
She is a girl who loves herself, and she knows what she deserves.
She doesn’t need you to provide her with self-worth, because she’s spent years building it up on her own. She doesn’t need you to shower her with attention, and she would prefer that you recognize her need to be alone sometimes.
It’s what she’s used to, and it’s what she likes.
After spending most of her time alone, she has certain things figured out.
She won’t wait around for you to make plans. If you haven’t called, she’s already moved on to doing something else with someone else.
If she wants to see a movie or go to a concert, she’ll probably buy herself a ticket without considering you. It isn’t personal, and you can’t get mad at her for it. Give her time, and she’ll begin inviting you.
You can’t push her to do things that she isn’t ready for or she’ll be gone.
Public displays of affection can make her uncomfortable, even if it’s just holding hands or a quick kiss as you part ways.
Changing your relationship status on Facebook right away might seem like a given to you. Sharing romantic photos on Instagram is the normal thing in your relationships. You'll have to hang back on these givens, because she might take it as you moving too fast.
Introducing you to her family and friends is big, and you can’t expect to meet them before she’s 100 percent sure of you.
She isn’t used to public declarations of love, and she might take some time to be comfortable with any of that. If you push, you won’t be in her life long enough to see how long it takes.
The most important thing to know about dating an independent girl is that she wants you in her life. If she’s taken the time to get to know you and invited you into her world, she wants you there for a long time.
