I’m not going to feign weakness to endear myself to someone.

I’ve found that many men will tell you they love a strong woman up until the moment you demonstrate said strength and then you realize they do not, in fact, love strong women.

A strong man knows the difference between me needing his care and wanting it. A strong man finds the place inside him to be himself and wants me to share that space with him. He respects my need to be unflinchingly who I am.
