Some ladies have become really familiar with the relative peace and quiet that comes with knowing how to be by one’s self and enjoying every moment of it.

Better single than sorry is a very valid philosophy and to find women who shun societal and media pressures to wait for the perfect one is in itself a blessing.

Obviously, however, there are always two sides to a coin and being in a relationship with such women could have it’s own little quirks.

5. Independent to a fault

She’ll likely be really independent… almost to a fault.

She’s spent so long taking care of herself that she’ll not see the immediate need for you to do things for her or even get involved in some parts of her life she’s enjoyed by herself for such a long time.
