Hi Sarah! I recently have dealt with the same issues and have struggled with it often. Several male friends have told me that being a strong independent woman who is honest (and loves sports) was intimidating for most men and those are all of which I am. I often times catch myself wondering what it is that I can do to fix it but have recently realized that I just need to continue to be who I am. It is a struggle but with Gods will he will bring someone who accepts my independence and all the quirks I have to go with it :). Hang in there! Just know you are not alone.
