Usually, the impression I get from these type of women are that they think they're overall better and stronger than men and try to compete with them rather than just having a real love relationship that involves respecting and appreciating each other for our differences.

I describe myself as strong and independent when I come to a site like this if a question or response calls for it, or if I'm talking to friends and refer to it - but when I meet a man, that's definitely not something that is going to fly out of my mouth thinking it will impress him. I don't state "I'm strong and independent". If I'm single and the guy realizes I have a home, a career, a car, and money in the bank then he can figure that out for himself. I think if a woman feels the need to state that at the time she meets someone or it comes up on one of the first few dates, she could be saying it as a means to let you know she doesn't expect you to take care of her and that she is likely letting you know she is not full of drama as she's worked hard to be where she is. Women like this still love companionship and romance, and want to show that they will be good partners, capable of sharing a life with you with their accomplishments instead of mooching off you and expecting to be taken care of.1
