I've been out a few times with this woman who is a self-proclaimed "independent woman." Someone who wants a boyfriend but doesn't "need" one - she has her own life and her own friends and doesn't seem to be the type to hang out every night (at least not at first).
Any of you girls like that? Maybe busy with career or mostly-content with your life and schedule, and just finding a way to make a boyfriend "fit" into your life? Any advice on how to handle a relationship with a woman like that?

Yup, I can help you with this one. She will let you know when/if she needs help. Dont assume she does. If you arnt sure, ask. Dont be clingy she will be turned off. In case you dont know what clingy is (lets face it some people dont). Its texting, calling too often, and being too needy as in "I want to see you". Especially if she just saw you the day before. She will need you for some things and try and be there for those things, of course if your schedule permits. Consider yourself lucky you dont have to do much. Whenever in doubt don't assume, ask. She won't be the girl who has to talk to you everyday and know where you are every second of the day and she will expect that you not grill her about where she's been and why she didn't answer when you called. If you call and she doesn't answer, she saw the call and she will call you back. Unless there's a life threatening emergency do not call her again and again of said initial call. This type of person will dismiss you if you are not in some way enriching her life. Things are looking good for you though, since you too have been out a few times... it means she will make time for the right person and that she quite possible likes you. Its its great that you posted the question to get some feedback as to how to handle this type of person. This shows you care and are willing to learn how to make it work. If she doesn't see that you are awesome then its her loss! Good luck with Ms. Independent!1
