Are men attracted to strong women?

A man likes a strong woman, but she should be strong in subtle ways. He has to know he's doing the right thing for her. In order to have a really terrific woman that he wouldn't want to leave, a man has to be confident that his love was strong enough for her so she wouldn't go somewhere else. He's afraid he can't measure up to that. Good women are too much for most men." This is a clear and poignant statement of Jimmy's lack of ability to be in touch with the wide spectrum of his own talents or to value himself sufficiently. This is an interesting contradiction many men live with. The strong male armor and ego identity is often based upon a lack of connection with their true strengths. Boredom sets in, power struggles, complaints,loneliness. Many men start to wonder why they started in the first place. To cope with these disappointments, some men go from one woman to the next, searching for the perfect partner.

I like a strong woman who saves her vulnerable, weak side for me. Men like women who show them their vulnerability, and that's just a fact of life, and I'd rather have a vulnerable woman all the time than a strong one all the time, but what I would most prefer is both the strength and the vulnerability.

There are, but oftentimes the guy just isn't enough of a strong protector/knight to bring out the woman's vulnerable side. Too many guys are sissies nowadays.

I once went out with a girl who rode horses a lot and I still remember the awesome strength of her thighs.

It will not happen anytime in your closeness becasue you are scared to date a strong woman? I've once dated a girl who could fix cars.
