There are so many reasons attraction exists between a man and a woman.
A man and woman can be attracted to themselves for the same reason their last relationship broke up.
Sometimes, it is amusing, and at other times, it is confusing as to why there is this conflict about what the standard should be.
Writing this blog post on who a strong woman is and what makes her fascinating is a reflection on the countless conversations and experiences that have shaped my understanding of what relationships and attraction can be.
Strength takes different forms.
Different women will show you what it means to them and how they can exude it in their own way.
Talking about strong women is not in the physical aspect alone but in an all-encompassing way.
It is about their qualities, resilience, intellectual prowess, emotional intelligence, and so on.
These manifestations of strength in diverse ways can be undeniably endearing and fascinating to anyone who takes an interest in them.
What are the fascinating reasons men find a strong woman endearing?
9 Fascinating Reasons Men Like Strong Women
1. Independence And Confidence
Men who find strong women fascinating often do because they exude independence and confidence.
A confident woman is a woman who is secure in herself.
This sense of security is what becomes the point of attraction for the man.
Confidence, in this sense, is also attractive because it projects self-assuredness and even a sense of purpose.
She is not easily intimidated, and she knows what she wants from anyone and everyone who comes across her way.
An independent woman, as it implies, is one who does not rely on anyone for her upkeep or well-being at any point.
She can take care of herself and does not put any form of extra pressure on any man in her life at any point.
She is literally secure, financially and emotionally.
Men will find this kind of woman attractive because they know that she will not put any form of pressure on them in that regard.
They know a relationship with this kind of a woman will not amount to any form of additional responsibility.
They know it is not for them to become a mentor or a father figure for another grown-up.
She is already the woman she wants to be and wouldn’t even stop evolving to become better.
2. Ambition And Drive
An ambitious woman is one with a strong work ethic, and that will be a driving force in her chosen career path.
She is a go-getter, has a can-do spirit, and never wants to give up on whatever she lays her hands on.
She doesn’t believe in the fact that a difficult task is meant to be abandoned.
She is one who believes that paths are created on mountains for them to be explored.
In fact, difficult tasks give this kind of woman an adrenaline rush because she knows it’s time to learn something new and set a new personal record for herself.
This kind of woman is committed and driven to achieve her goals, and this is usually the point of inspiration and attractiveness to her man.
She is not afraid to set high standards for herself and put in the work hard to reach these aspirations.
Men know that having this kind of woman in their lives will translate to having a support system that wants to see them succeed at everything they do.
Her energy will be transmitted to them, and it will impact their own lives, too.
They know that her ambitious nature will help them get to the peak of their dreams because they have a woman who has a high drive for success in their life.
Who doesn’t want this kind of woman as a partner?
Perhaps an insecure man!
3. Emotional Resilience
A strong woman has handled quite a number of adversity and emotional challenges in her life, and this is probably why she is who she is.
She handled it with grace and resilience and did not even flinch in the face of it.
A man who is privileged to know this part of her life will know that he has struck gold.
He knows that this quality in her will be a major source of strength for both himself and herself.
He knows that she is a woman who can weather life’s storms without falling apart.
He knows she is strong enough to chart through the waters of life without letting it get her drowned.
He has probably witnessed her handle challenges, and that will instill more confidence and trust in the relationship.
He knows that this kind of woman in his life assures him of emotional stability and security in the relationship.
A man who finds this kind of woman will definitely not want to let go.
He knows when he is down and can’t hold it down; there is a steady hand that can handle things till he gets his groove back.
4. Intellectual Stimulation
A strong woman is the queen of intellectual stimulation.
She will get your mental nerves tickled at any given opportunity.
By nature, she is curious, so this makes her well-read on various subjects that catch her interest.
This is why she will always want to engage in conversations when she finds someone who shares the same interests as them.
This aspect of her life also makes her a great conversationalist and not just the boring partner who will only reply in monosyllabic responses to interesting subjects.
This intellectual compatibility is a major thing for a man who is on the same page as her.
This will birth attractiveness, and fascination will lead to a deeper connection in a relationship.
At one point, they might be countering themselves because they share different points of view.
At another point, they are agreeing on the same subject with hearty laughter and high-fives.
This trait is enough reason to find her fascinating because men enjoy engaging partners who challenge them mentally and share their interests.
5. Supportive Partner
A strong woman is known to be supportive in her relationship.
She cannot combine all of the qualities described in this post and not be a supportive partner.
She is emotionally sound, and that makes her a stable partner who can extend grace to her man when he needs it.
She is independent, and she takes care of her needs as well as some basic needs and their relationship.
She’s ambitious and goal-driven, so that makes her a pillar for her partner’s success.
She is a source of strength, support, advice, and encouragement when her partner needs it.
It is the combined qualities that make her man feel valued and appreciated in the relationship while he adores her.
6. Equality In Relationships
As I said above, she is one who is independent and supportive.
This means that she does not need someone to be responsible for her at all times.
And the fact that she already knows what it means to be all of these easily creates room for equality and mutual respect in a relationship.
A man who knows what he wants will appreciate a woman who sees him as an equal rather than one who is subservient in the name of submission.
This is because he understands a relationship is not a place to exercise autonomy.
A relationship where equality thrives is a healthy one with more balance and fulfillment for both parties.
They find meaning in themselves without making a big deal of basic issues like splitting bills or attending to each other’s needs.
Nobody feels lesser than the other because of basic existential needs being met.
Only a strong woman can exhibit this kind of trait with a man.
And contrary to public opinion that this trait will push a man away from a woman, it will bring him closer to her.
And if I were a man, I would never let this kind of woman go.
7. Emotional Honesty
Another trait of a strong woman is emotional honesty.
On the face of it, it simply means one who is bold enough to express her feelings, desires, and thoughts in a very rational way.
She comes plain with her feelings and leaves nothing to guesswork or mind games.
She is not afraid to talk about what she feels, how she feels things should be, and what will potentially work out.
She doesn’t believe in shrinking her feelings to validate another’s.
Eventually, this will lead to building a solid emotional connection and intimacy with whoever she finds herself with.
This trait is what some may term as being rude or being haughty.
However, it is none of either.
It is being able to talk about anything and everything that may lead to unhealthy arguments or issues along the line in the relationship.
She is not afraid to have those difficult conversations and thrash them properly.
This trait is one that is desirable because it saves the man a lot of emotional stress and logic in knowing what goes on with her.
8. Leadership Qualities
A strong woman is a natural leader, and that makes her possess leadership qualities.
She is able to make decisions when necessary.
She is not afraid to be in charge at any time the need arises.
Her confidence gives her the headstart she needs to face any task squarely.
These qualities sum up to be a point of attraction for any man because they knows they have a woman who can take the lead when the situation calls for it.
It’s always an ego boost for them to see their woman lead successfully.
Also, in the relationship, they know they can rely on her sound knowledge to make beneficial decisions for them.
9. He Is A User
I’m sure you’re surprised at this final point.
Some men are attracted to strong women because of the qualities they possess.
The kind of men in this category are the ones who are laid back and have nothing to offer the woman in exchange for the quality of life she is going to bring to them.
They are simply looking for someone who will offer them the kind of life they want to live without them struggling for anything to achieve it.
They appear like the real deal for the woman because somehow they understand the dynamics of the kind of relationship this kind of woman needs.
They, on the other hand, come with pseudo-stability and fake promises of a better life.
They employ mind games to get her to see only the good they have to offer.
I called them relationship parasites.
A man like this will definitely latch on to a strong woman because of the gains he is out to get from her.
Humans have different experiences and upbringings that have formed them over the years, and this is why anyone who approaches you for a friendship or relationship should be properly scrutinized before you allow them access into your life.
Some motives are really good, and others can be selfish.
It is all up to you to be vigilant and not let your guard down before you really know who a person is.
