Dating roles

dating roles-2

As women, we need to stop emasculating our men and start empowering them to be…men!I think what stuck with me the most about this post is that it reminded me of me just a few years ago.

Let me apologize right now if you find this infuriating, but somebody’s got to tell you the truth. That means you allow the man to pursue you rather than trying to jump in and take charge.Here are my reasons why:1) Men are wired to be the pursuer – Men think differently than women. And the notion that they would be comfortable being pursued is not something they would ever truly come to terms with.For example, in my experience, no matter how capable I am and independent I become, at the end of the day, the guy always still wants to rescue me somehow, whether it be opening the bottle of wine or fixing something. Would they be flattered and appreciative if you picked up the tab once in a while? But I assure you deep down there are inherent and undeniable needs for the man to take care of the woman.In these modern times of high-tech with gadgets galore, is it necessary to stick with the dating morays of yore?Just as our technology has evolved, have our dating gender roles evolved, as well?I have found that strong, independent woman tend to want to get the ball rolling in the relationship area, just like you do in business.

You want to get his digits, ask him out, email him, buy tickets to events, and follow up when he doesn’t call after the first date to find out why.

If women want to stand toe-to-toe with men, shouldn’t they also sit toe-to-toe with them also, especially when it comes to picking up the tab? the woman is the primary breadwinner with stay-at-home dads, but those are exceptions and not the rule.

While this seems quite logical and prudent, how far do we go in terms of dating? Could gender roles soften as new generations opt for blurred gender roles? And while it might be viable and preferred by some, for the majority the traditional male – female roles in relationships will still prevail.

If he's expecting you to move faster, ditch the pressure—and possibly him.

Rules about when or whether to hit the sack with a new partner can be confusing.
