Here’s Why You Should Date A Woman With A Strong Point Of View

Opinionated women can be intimidating. They’re strong and sassy, which can be scary AF to guys who are insecure. For all the rest of you, I’m gonna let you guys in on a little secret. If you’re willing to bite the bullet and make an outspoken woman yours, it might just be the best thing you ever do. Here’s why:

  1. She’s intelligent AF and a total information sponge. You’ll never have to spoon-feed this lady information. She’s got it covered and, frankly, she finds your efforts to ‘educate her’ patronizing as hell. When you date an opinionated woman, you need to remember that she’s smart and constantly seeking to expand her intellect. In fact, she’ll probably teach you a few new things.
  2. She cares about more than just guys. Opinionated women like to learn about everything the world has to offer. What that actually means is that they don’t spend 99.99% of their time obsessing over guys and whether they like them or not. When you meet a lady like this, it might come as something of a shock.
  3. There will never be any awkward first date silences. Isn’t it infuriating when you take a girl out on a date and she expects you to carry the conversation all the damn time? It’s almost like she thinks that you’re there to entertain her rather than it being a 50/50 effort. Well, there’s none of that BS when it comes to opinionated ladies. They have so much to say, you’ll hardly get a word in edgeways.
  4. Oh, and you will never, ever be bored. PYou won’t have to sit there listening to her chit-chat about girl drama. This lady is so not about that. Instead, she cares about the big issues in life and she’s not afraid to start a mini-debate over the breakfast table. If there’s one thing that you will never, ever be when you’re with this girl, it’s bored.
  5. She’ll hold her own in social situations. This is not a lady that you need to molly-coddle through life. If you take her to a party, don’t expect her to cling to your arm all night for security. Oh no, she’ll be out there mingling and striking up a whole load of conversations with anyone who will listen to her. Sure, she might ruffle a few feathers now and then, but that’s a small price to pay.
  6. She’ll have no problem chatting with your friends. You should never worry about introducing this girl to your friends because she’s got this in the bag. She’s not the kind of girl who fears talking to new people — she freakin’ loves it. She’ll likely start telling your friends all about her opinions and asking them what they think. Before you know it, they’ll be BFFs and you’ll be the one feeling left out.
  7. You’ll be able to ask her for real world advice. When you’re struggling with something, having an opinionated woman around is the best. She won’t sugarcoat the truth when it comes to advice. Nope, this is a strong lady who has faith in her own opinions. That actually means that she’ll offer you some pretty solid advice.
  8. She has a rare level of confidence. When a woman is opinionated and is forthcoming with her thoughts and feelings, it means that she’s confident AF. If she wasn’t, she would try to hide herself away and only speak when spoken to. That’s so not her. She has a rare level of confidence which means that she won’t need constant reassurance from you.
  9. She’ll challenge you in so many ways. While stepping out with a ‘challenging woman’ might sound like a form of extreme dating, it can actually be pretty damn awesome. When you date a woman with opinions, she’ll always keep you on your toes. You’ll have countless debates and talks every day. The plus side of that is that you’ll become an actual pro at putting together a strong argument.
  10. You might actually learn something from her! Opinionated women don’t just pull their thoughts out of thin air, you know? The reason that they’re so confident in what they say is because they’ve thought about things a whole lot and looked into them too. When you go out with a girl like this, you’ll likely end the evening feeling way more enlightened.
