If you are a woman who has her shit together, refuse to accept mediocrity, hate playing games, and want all the good that the world has to offer… you probably have a hard time with the opposite sex. A lot of men will pass over a strong take no prisoners type of female. But a man who has his shit together knows a badass woman makes the best girlfriend. Here are just a few reasons why:

1. She’ll keep it 100.

There’s no fronting, what you see is what you get. A confident female doesn’t feel like she has to pretend to be something she’s not to get a man. She demands that you either like her for who she is or leave her the hell alone. Simple. The badass knows her worth, and values her dignity. She doesn’t feel the need to pretend to be something she’s not to reel in a man. If the person she’s interested in is scared off by her, so be it. Better than wasting everyone’s time.

2. She can handle herself.

Whether she’s out with the girls or away on a business trip, you don’t have to worry about her. She knows how to handle her shit. She’s not the type to get falling-down drunk or put herself in dangerous situations. She’s been around the block once or twice and has this stuff handled.

3. Better to be wanted than needed.

If you feel that it’s better to be wanted than needed than a badass female is for you. If she’s with you, it’s not because of the material things you can offer, but the emotionally joy you bring. She can provide all the material things in life herself, and her overall happiness doesn’t depend on others.

4. She lives life to the fullest.
