Afraid of Commitment?
Some people labeled as “independent” are actually afraid of commitment, even though they may also recognize their need for friendship, love and intimacy. You should know that for many of us there is strength in giving up some of that independence in exchange for the trust, commitment and love of another person. But before you can realize this potential you may need to adjust the way you’ve become used to doing things a little bit.
Attention is a Relationship Builder/Saver
New relationships require a lot of care and attention. So much, in fact, that many independent people may start to feel smothered and will seek time away by themselves. To them it is just time to replenish their energy reserves, but to their partner it may signal that they are pulling away or losing respect for them. Independent people need time alone, but they may also need to deal with a little discomfort in order to build the trust, security and commitment necessary to take a relationship to the next level.

Decide if You Are Commitment Material
Before you give a relationship your full attention you need to answer one question: Are you commitment (marriage) material? You might say, “Well, I don’t know. I suppose I might be if the right person came along.” That may seem like a fair answer, but the reality is that independent people have to make their intentions known, or they could be at risk for being labeled as “not suitable for commitment.” An independent lifestyle can be a red flag for some people, but it can be less so if you express your intentions before any misinterpretation can set in.

Let Yourself Be Vulnerable
Independent people can do just about anything on their own, and most worthy partners will respect that. But one of the great things about being in a partnership is being able to help each other every now and then. It allows us to feel good about ourselves and feel needed in the relationship. One of the biggest reasons why men and women lose interest in a relationship is because they no longer feel loved, respected, trusted or appreciated. Being vulnerable is not a sign of weakness in a good relationship; It is a sign of trust and the openness to love and be loved.
Beware of Becoming too Picky
You’re independent, you’ve worked hard and you’re looking for the same qualities in a partner. Independent people have very high standards and there is no doubt about that. That is part of who they are. However, if your standards remain too high, you will likely never find anyone worthy of your company, besides yourself. Part of what makes a relationship successful is finding strengths within your partner to admire. You have control over how you choose to interpret them, and according to research, wearing rose-colored glasses on occasion does more good than harm when it comes to a happily ever after.
Take Turns Leading the Relationship
In any relationship it is usually the most independent (or less interested) person who holds all the cards. They call all the shots, make all the decisions and have the ability to control the relationship. Just be aware that alpha and beta relationships can get along fine when one person is leading the partnership, but they do even better when they both get a turn at the wheel.

Opposites Don’t Always Attract the Best Sex
What do successful, powerful and independent people truly crave in the bedroom? According to research, they want to be dominated, desired and lusted after. In other words, when it comes to good sex, two alphas may be the recipe to a very happy ending. There are certainly some advantages to being in a relationship with another strong, independent person, so don’t let your fear of losing control of the reins interfere with taking this type of partnership for a trial spin.
