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!
