As the title says, I'm looking for romances that have a strong woman as the male main character's love interest. They also must end up together, as I'm getting bored of watching a romance that ends with both characters derping around in denial.

Which traits does a strong person possess, in my opinion? Willpower, courage, cunning and solidarity. It would be a nice bonus if she's physically strong, too. But that's not as important as her character.

Examples: Kaichou wa Maid-sama (Misaki), Toradora (Taiga)

I assume you're looking for anime? Anyway, here are some suggestions; I don't know if all of them have all of those traits, but they all come close. (Also, while these women end up strong, they don't necessarily start there.)

SA: Special A
Ah My Goddess
His & Her Circumstances (Kare Kano)
Mysterious Girlfriend X
Angel Beats
Hanasaku Iroha
Happiness
Kimikiss: Pure Rouge
Otome Youkai Zakuro
Steins; Gate
Valkyria Chronicles
Bakemonogatari
The World is Still Beautiful

It's not strictly a romance, but there are romantic elements in The Rose of Versailles, and Lady Oscar has all the traits you're looking for. Highly recommended.

Even though Usagi is kind of a crybaby, I think Sailor Moon Crystal also qualifies. =)

That's all I've got. I'm more into action/adventure than romance. =P

Yona of the Dawn
Shirayuki
I'm not a fan of the series itself, but Kurisu of Steins Gate is pretty awesome.

Saiunkuoku Monogaratari: Biggest crime that this series doesn't get the love it deserves. Also needs a relicense.

Kamigami no Asobi: Yes, this is otome, but Yui's pretty cool and smart for an otome heroine.
