Independent as in she doesn't always want to do things with you but has her own set of hobbies , her own friends. Not the clingy type at all
How do guys feel about it?
I feel like its a turn off because the guys I've dated dont seem too fond of it and my female friends who love doing everything or a lot of the things with their siginifcant other are in serious and loving relationships.

define independent !
there is a huge difference between an independent mature woman and an independent wild woman, first one can raise him up and would make life easy for him and even be his happy life partner, while the other type can drive him crazy, keep him confused and break his self esteem and make his life a living hell since in her opinion she doesn't need a man to complete her, and usually this type are the ones with daddy issues or early life stage heart broken, they look like a wild horse gorgeous, independent and full of life so she attracts you then she drops you of her back and break your neck !
respect and honesty comes first in relationship, independence is a bonus feature !0

I think it takes finding the right person who is ok having basically separate lives and coming together when suitable and knowing when independent becomes distant and aloof so they can reconnect.
Personally it's not for me, I love doing things with my spouse and though we spend so much time together all of its treasured.
But we have a friend couple and they're like this... it genuinely baffled me that they could do so many things separately and enjoyed being alone so often or doing bigger things with friends instead of each other.
But they're so happy, they've been together almost 10 years and even marriage and a baby hasn't changed their independence. It's just what they need and they're completely fulfilled by it even though I can't personally relate to it - it works!
Just have to find the matching person who feels the same way0
