4 Things men love about independent women.

Dating when you are young and care-free can be tricky enough, but throw kids into the mix and it can become a nightmare. Not to mention the dating pool, which can seem impossible to navigate and find someone looking for similar things as you.

There are many things nobody tells you about dating with kids. One of which is that men love women who are independent. The man of your dreams is probably looking for a woman who has it together, and is strong and independent.

According to researchers at the University of Texas, the ideal woman (according to science):

‘Should fulfil the functions for evolution and procreation.’

This means that women who are attractive to the opposite sex, fertile and able to bear children, and are overall healthy are considered to be most perfect.

But science doesn’t know everything and it certainly doesn’t know what makes a man’s ideal woman when it comes to their personalities. Or what’s on the inside counts just as much, if not more!

So, if you’re ready to start dating again and can navigate your way around the dating field and your busy schedule, here are four things men love about independent women.



Men love it when a woman is independent because it means that she is strong and can provide for herself and her family. It also means that she is able to support him and provide him with love. Luckily, you don’t need to do much to show your strength, as it’ll come shining through because you’re a single superhero mum!


Megan Jones, relationship expert from THEGOODESTATE says:

‘Men love a woman who has bags of confidence, because it shows that should any problems arise later down the line she knows how to handle herself, those around her, and the situation.’

So, don’t be afraid to stick up for what you believe in and show him just how confident and sexy you are.


A woman who is independent knows how to love and look after herself. This is something that men love to see, because it means that you can both do your own thing and that you won’t be checking up on him every five minutes when you are apart. Being independent and able to be alone and do things for yourself will show him how much you love and respect yourself. This in turn will make him love and respect you too!


It comes along with being an amazing mother, but the men you’ll date will love to see your ability to solve problems effortlessly. This fierce attitude will show your man that you are able to deal with anything that life throws at you. And who wouldn’t fall in love with such a badass?
