Texas women make you go yee-haw! And in today’s guide, we’re going to look at some common characteristics of girls from Texas, learn what they usually are like in relationship so you’re better prepared to deal with one.
Important: Each woman is an individual with her own distinct personality, so don’t expect them all to be as described below. But there are some common traits that many Texas women share, so it’s time to generalize a bit.
In short, Texas women are amazing people who value honesty, loyalty, and a strong sense of family.
They’re a bit more traditional in nature than your regular US girl, but they manage at the same time to be surprisingly independent and strong.
Women from Texas appreciate partners who are open and transparent, as trust is a foundational element in their relationships.
They love men who know how to listen, how to express themselves (and their feelings) and who are not going to shy away from more “manly” tasks and outdoorsy adventures.
And romanticism is never out of date, so if you want to impress her a bit, make sure to check out my previous article about the best romantic destinations in the US.
As I said, these are mainly generalizations, but they don’t exist for nothing.. so after this brief introduction, I think it’s time we go a bit more in depth and explore what it’s like dating Texan girls and women.
Texas Women: That Amazing Southern Charm
“Southern charm” is an expression that you will hear often here in Texas, and for all the right reasons.
Ladies in and from Texas definitely have it, complemented by a natural sense of allure, style, and diversity. This combination makes them stand out and leave a mark.
And don’t even get me started on their looks! Women from Texas are naturally beautiful and even better for those who like it that way – naturally fit. Although this makes sense, as they are generally outdoorsy, adventurous and active overall.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that they don’t like to chill and enjoy some time off on one of the best beaches in Hawaii, for example… but she’s usually more outdoorsy than most.
Texas women possess a set of personality traits that make them special and I’m quickly going over them below:
- Confidence: Texan ladies are very confident, knowing that they’re naturally amazing. They like men that are of a similar nature – confident, without being cocky.
- Independence: These women treasure their freedom and have a resilient spirit. They take charge and follow their dreams with enthusiasm, so make sure you’re ready to give them the room they need.
- Hospitality: Texan girls are famous for their warmth and hospitality. They welcome others with open arms and create a cozy ambiance. Don’t try to take advantage of this though: they’ll quickly switch gears and you’ll lose your opportunity.
- Loyalty: Once you win the heart of a Texas woman, her loyalty is without limits. She stands by her loved ones through good or bad times – and this is a rare trait nowadays
- Southern Charm: As I told you already, Texas girls possess charming Southern manners. They are naturally polite, graceful, and courteous, making them irresistible companions.
Moreover, their passion for tradition and strong family bonds are additional traits that make them unique in a world that is starting to turn away from the value of family.
All in all, we can definitely say that Texas women are special, naturally beautiful, independent and strong… and they make amazing companions for the short and long term.
Speaking of which, let’s get a bit more in depth with what it’s like dating a Texan, what to expect from a relationship with her (and what you’re expected to give in return) and some tips from yours truly.
Texas women: here’s what to expect when dating one
As you can probably imagine already, dating a woman from Texas is both challenging and rewarding at the same time, but totally worth it.
Deep-rooted in Southern values, Texas women are generally more traditional than others throughout the country, but without losing their independent spirit and personal strength. A really well balanced mix – there’s no other way to put it.
Dating girls from Texas can be described as “cowboy spirit meets urban desires.” In other words, she’ll bring forth a spirit of adventure, both literally and on a more spiritual side.
She’s fiercely loyal to her roots, evidenced in her love for Tex-Mex cuisine, rodeos, and two-stepping.
Talks about faith, family, and football are not just idle chatter here, but a way things are. Expect her to know a lot about each of these topics and have strong opinions too.
The more traditional way of being and living also comes with advantages. She’ll always welcome you with a smile and she’ll always be ready to treat you to a home-cooked meal that tastes like comfort and tradition.
In other words, being in a relationship with a Texan woman is pretty much perfect, as long as you don’t mind her sometimes fiery attitude, her strong temper – which sometimes becomes pure stubbornness – and innate desire for adventure.
Which is all good, having in mind that I listed Austin, TX as one of the best US cities for digital nomads.
