It takes a brave man to handle a girlboss. She has so much going on and often appears too busy to date anybody. While she may not be too busy for you, she is definitely too busy for playing games. You won’t find her spending extra time playing hard to get. She isn’t concerned with beating around the bush to tell you how she feels and when she says that she is busy, she is actually busy. Here are a few things to know before dating a #girlboss:

1) She’s not afraid to go after what she wants

She will challenge herself. She will push herself. She realizes that nothing comes easy and you don’t get the reward without the work. She hustles and she hustles hard. She feels the same way about relationships. If she wants it, she will work for it and do what it takes to get it.

2) She is incredibly independent

She does not need anyone. She is capable of succeeding on her own and certainly does not need the help of a man to get her where she wants to be. She is self-reliant and self-sufficient. She doesn’t need people to think or do for her. She has never been that and will never be that way. She can pay for her own things, but chivalry is still appreciated.

3) She works hard, but she also knows how to have a good time

There is nothing better than grabbing a glass of wine, watching a movie, and spending time together after a long day of work. She may work a full, 8 hour day at the office, but there is nothing better than coming home to the person that makes her the happiest.

4) She may be crazy busy 

She is used to doing things on her own.  She doesn’t expect someone else to take care of her. She takes care of herself.  She works hard and spends her day pushing through her to do lists. If she pushes you to the back burner, it might not be on purpose.  Instead, it might be because she’s used to doing things on her own.

5) She wants you

Even though she may not be used to having someone else there, she still wants you there. She gives her love, time, and attention to those who actually deserve it. If she thought that you didn’t deserve it, she wouldn’t waste her time. If she is spending time with you, she wants you to be there.

Make no mistake, girl bosses may be different than some of the girls you’ve dated in the past, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Girl bosses will challenge you and impact you in ways that you never expected. Their drive and ambition gives them a completely different outlook on life and if you’re lucky enough to date a girl boss, hold on tight because she just might give you a new perspective too.
