Strong, independent women can seem intimidating at first, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Some of us women were just born to lead, to boss every experience and opportunity with intensity — and that includes the dating world. Not all women are born to be the submissive and doting types, but that doesn’t devalue how amazing we can be.

  1. We go after what we want in life. When we see something we want in life, we go after it full throttle. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it. If we want a certain career, we chase it to no end. You want that new big screen? We’re going to work hard by your side to make it a reality. If you’re the guy in our life, we’re going to chase goals not just for ourselves, but for us as a team as well.
  2. We know how to get stuff done. We take the lead when stuff needs to get done. If there’s a party to be planned or a responsibility to be tackled, we’re in it to win it. We enjoy feeling a sense of accomplishment and thrive on productivity. If we’re in your life, get ready for amazing task handling and our get-stuff-done attitude.
  3. We’re not afraid to make the first move. As dominant women, we don’t hesitate to make the first move, because why wait when we can get things started sooner? We’re passionate aggressors and we love intimacy to the degree that you’ll rarely have to remind us about sex, because we’re too busy anticipating when we can jump you next.
  4. We won’t let our stuff get out of line. We like to keep our stuff together because it’s literally in our nature to do so. We don’t let life get away from us and we handle our responsibilities like the grown women we are. Our natural aggressive natures allow us to delegate our attention to the most important matters first; that way, we get to enjoy everything else in between fully.
  5. We don’t need a Prince Charming — we’re already queens. We’ve crowned ourselves in our own lives, which means we’re not looking for a king to rescue us or save us from the things we can’t do ourselves — we’ve got this stuff handled. We make amazing girlfriends because we’re not looking for someone to complete us, or take care of us; we’re looking for a true partner in life.
  6. We mesmerize with our ‘zero f*cks given’ attitude. You’ll be completely in awe of the way we literally don’t give a f*ck about most things. If there’s a problem, we’re on it and we don’t hesitate to tackle life’s challenges when they come up. When you’re the guy in our life, you don’t need to worry that we’re going to routinely fall apart when something difficult comes up. We’re going to face those roadblocks with hungry eyes because we’re eager to find solutions.
  7. We’re smart AF. There’s no shortage of intelligent conversations with us — it’s in our nature to absorb information and learn new things constantly. We’re thirsty for knowledge because knowledge is power, and it only further fuels our successes.
  8. We don’t slack off. While we do come down off our dominant highs sometimes and like to spend lazy days on the couch with the amazing man in our life, we also know that chill time can only be enjoyed after crunch time. You won’t find find us slipping into lazy ruts because at the end of the day, we function at a higher level overall after we’ve bossed our lives first.
  9. We want to love you as hard as you love us. We’re not just dominant in our careers and in the bedroom, we’re also dominant in love. As dominant women, our hustle matches the way we love. If we love, we love hard and fiercely — there’s no in between. If you’re willing to step up to the plate and be the leading guy in our lives, it’ll be one of the best choices you’ve ever made.
