by Isis Duero

She's funny, sexy and smart. She surprises you with gifts and has a great sense of humor.

She's the perfect woman for you.

You love her and know you want a serious relationship with her. It’s time to settle down.

But, what happens when she isn't ready and wants to keep things light?

The answer may surprise you.

The women of today’s world know they're meant to be great, and they have a purpose in life other than just to procreate.

Here are eight reasons the woman you love isn't ready to settle down:

1. She won’t settle down yet because she wants a career.

She wants to be a professional and have power, just like men do.

She wants to wake up one day and say, “I did it!”

She wants to feel proud and content with herself.

Women, like men, have the need to feel accomplished. They need to feel they have something no one can take away from them: an education and worlds of knowledge.

They want to be taken seriously and show the world they aren't just pretty faces.

2. She won’t settle down yet because she wants to enjoy living alone.

She lived with her parents until she was 18 years old. Then, she went to live with a roommate in her college dorm, and she went back to her parents after graduation.

Now that she has a stable job and lives alone, she wants to enjoy her home.

She wants to decorate, light candles and incense all over the house, walk around in her underwear, leave a mess in the bathroom after doing her makeup, spend Sundays in pajamas without showering, eat takeout every day and not have to worry about anyone else but herself.

3. She won’t settle down yet because she has wanderlust.

She went to study abroad in college, and now she can’t get enough of European culture.

She's become a travel junkie, and she won’t settle down until she fulfills her desire of traveling the world.

She wants to explore life on her own. She wants to see new places, discover new cultures and have new experiences.

4. She won’t settle down yet because she wants to enjoy her friends and family.

She wants to take a whole day off to go to the spa with her friends.

She wants to go to dinner with her mother in the evening and go dancing with her male friends at night.

She wants to go to sleep in New York and wake up in Miami.

She wants to be able to do things without having to explain where she disappeared to, or why dinner hasn't been served yet.

Women enjoy their freedom.

5. She won’t settle down yet because she loves that stimulating, thrilling feeling of not knowing what to expect.

It’s exciting! She wants to live her life without having everything planned out.

She wants to just enjoy the ride and welcome the things and people that naturally come into her life.

6. She won’t settle down yet because she wants time for personal and spiritual growth.

She wants to learn the things she likes and dislikes.

She wants to get to know her inner self and grow emotionally and spiritually.

7. She won’t settle down yet because she wants to enjoy her economic independence.

Now that she's finally graduated from college, has a stable job and makes decent money, she wants to enjoy spending it.

She wants to go to that fancy restaurant on the beach, buy the car of her dreams or splurge on that expensive watch she saw in a magazine.

She wants to pamper herself because she deserves it.

She knows her priorities will change once she settles down, and she starts thinking about buying a house and saving up money for family trips.

8. She won’t settle down yet because she wants to make sure you're ready to put your grown-up pants on.

She wants you to go on adventures, make mistakes, get to know yourself in solitude and have all the experiences you were meant to have before you settle down.

She wants to make sure you've done everything you need to do as a single man, so you'll be ready to start experiencing things as a couple and spend the rest of your life with her.
