Folks, let's make this clear: a woman doesn't need a partner to be confident! A single woman is the most confident because she knows that she doesn't need a boyfriend or husband to be happy. A single confident woman would rather be by herself than in the wrong relationship.

Many of us have this weakness. We all like to think that everyone has a good opinion of us. The reality about this is harsher for women than men. Society expects women to act and behave in a certain way. A  sign of a confident woman is that you don't let anyone's opinion affect you. 

3. You're focused on your goals and aspirations
