Technically only children, the disabled and the elderly should "need" other people to take care of them. Relationships are supposed to be out of want not out of need.

Neither true nor false, in a general sense. The answer to this is on an individual basis.
For starters, please do not conflate being strong and independent with not needing or wanting companionship. They are not mutually exclusive by any stretch of the imagination. Homo sapiens is a highly social creature and most of us desire the companionship of others, even if only occasionally. Furthermore, looking at all the people out there who feel really awful that they can't find a long-term relationship suggests to me (and presumably anybody else) that the desire for close, intimate companionship for emotional and social reasons--nevermind sexual--is also exceptionally common.
It's too hasty to just say that "strong and independent women don't need men". That can be interpreted to suggest that it excludes strong, self-sufficient women who achieve success independently and of their own merit yet want the companionship and closeness of a romantic relationship.
On a super technical, overly pedantic level, a strong, independent woman doesn't "need" a man in the strictest sense. That should not, however, be mistaken for not wanting and desiring that kind of relationship nonetheless.

If a person thinks they NEED someone else to be happy, then they aren't content with themselves.
Happiness doesn't come from others, it comes from the inside of a person. So... if a person isn't happy within, then how can they be happy around anyone else? I don't think they can

No. Without men, the world wouldn’t be as developed which what brings you this happiness. And you wouldn’t have this so called “strong, independent women” in the first place without men.

"Need" and "Want" are different.
Do men need sex? Strictly speaking, no, they don't. Do they (at least in some cases) really want sex? Yeah, many do.
And so it is with strong independent women. They want a fundamental part of life. People pair off. As the commercial says, "that's what they do".

"T or F: Strong & independent women don’t need men ?"
Strong & Independent women usually need the state as the stand-in for a man in order to remain "strong & independent". As least if we go by the feminist definition of a strong & independent woman.
An actual strong and independent woman that does not rely on anybody at all is completely rare. While I'm sure that there are some around, we have very, very few prominent examples from history.

Women need a man no matter how strong and independent they are. Women are never safe without the guidance of a man. Feminists may call me sexist but anyone with common sense knows how the world works.
