A strong woman is rare, beautiful, and 100% self-made. She’s been through a lot with ups, downs, and everything in-between, but has always managed to fight her way through whatever hardships life was throwing her way. A strong woman is independent, relentless, gentle at heart (although will show it just to a lucky few) and knows what she wants in life. She is determined, hard-working, intelligent, and will not settle for just any partner. He should be her equal, a supportive and understanding man she can count on. She is honest and knows her self-worth. Here are 8 things a strong woman will never tolerate in a relationship.

Being respectful to each other is the corner stone of a successful and happy relationship. A strong woman knows this and will not tolerate offensive language, bad treatment, belittling comments about her looks, hobbies, work, etc. She’s open to healthy criticism, but without sarcasm and negativity. She’s been there, done that, and now wants someone who will make her happy, not miserable.
Lying is something a strong woman simply can’t stand. She would rather hear a blunt or harsh truth than stay in the dark not knowing what’s going on. Sugar-coating things is definitely not her style and she wouldn’t want her partner to do it either.
Insecurity leads to jealousy and all kinds of weird behaviour in a relationship. A partner that feels insecure will not be able to fully trust her, no matter how perfect she behaves herself. That’s why a strong woman doesn’t tolerate insecurity that results in unkindness, suspiciousness, and low self-esteem. A guy like that will not stay in her life for long even if he somehow finds his way into her heart.
A strong woman is unforgiving when it comes to those who are unfaithful. It’s the worst kind of lie, one she will never let go. If a partner wants to see some other women as well, he should discuss this beforehand, discussing the boundaries of such a relationship. Otherwise, she’ll let go of a partner like that in a heartbeat.
She’s strong and confident, but this doesn’t change the fact that she wants her partner to be all that, too. She knows her weaknesses and had moments of doubts and various hardships, that’s when her partner should support her and be there for her in every way. In other words, she’s looking for a mature man she can fully trust.
Inside the relationship we all have certain expectations and when they’re not met we try various tricks to get what we want. Just like women, guys have a rich arsenal of manipulative instruments they’re not afraid to use. Maybe he would like his girlfriend to be more fit, so he’ll try to push her into going to a gym by implying she’s overweight. He may also try to make her wear things he finds attractive, ignoring her opinion on the matter, just to show off what a woman he’s got. Well, all these tricks don’t work on her! And she will not tolerate if a partner tries to overpower her in such a way.
Crossing the boundaries
While most ladies have a hard time figuring what they like and what is too much, a strong woman knows exactly where her boundaries lie, especially when it comes to relationships. If says ‘No’ or ‘Don’t you ever do that again’ – she means it and she will not tolerate her partner overstepping her boundaries over and over again.
Being too dominating
Men are quite used to being the lead in the relationship, that’s why being together with a strong woman is tricky. She’s independent, free-spirited, and will hop into the driver’s seat whenever she feels like it or things that she has a better understanding of things. In this case, a partner should let her lead the way! Being too dominating, always trying to decide things for her and not consulting with her on different matters will definitely lead to breakup. A strong woman won’t tolerate such behaviour.
