Independent women have so many silly assumptions made about them.

There are all these preconceived notions that are so wrong, they're laughable.

I don't know if people are threatened by independent women, intimidated by them, or jealous of them.

I don't know if they just don't like anything that challenges their opinions of what a woman should be or what, but if you're a woman and you can happily and successfully take care of yourself, people can get downright nasty.

Even when they're not being mean, exactly, plenty of their assumptions are nasty, too.

Here are some of the biggest misconceptions about independent women.

See if any of them seem familiar to you, and be sure to chime in with your experiences, too!2

1. Independent Women Aren't Interested in Having a Relationship – Ever

person, singer, singing,

Ever, ever, ever, no exceptions, if you're independent then some people assume you never want to be with anybody.

2. But It's Also Impossible for You to Be Single and Happy – You're Totally Faking It

person, singer, singing, CAN, WHATEVERI,

There's no way you're actually happy about being single, either – that's impossible!2

3. Somehow, Being Independent Means You Have Sex All the Time

person, anime, profession, mobile device, vehicle,

That's basically all you ever do, right, like one of those highfalutin modern women?

4. Probably with Tons of Partners, so You're Promiscuous, Too

person, woman, facial expression, religion, emotion,

Not only are you having lots of sex, but you're having lots of sex with random people – and a whole lot of folks actually assume that independent women are always after married men.

5. Or else You're a Frigid Old Spinster

person, blond, woman, singing, singer,

Okay, I don't even understand people at all anymore.

6. And You're Absolutely Destined to Be a Cat Lady

person, facial expression, emotion, profession, Like,

Well, of course – if you're a woman who can stand on her own two feet, obviously no one but your cats will ever love you, and also you're clearly a witch who needs her feline familiars with her at all times.2
