Heaven Made Matches Start On Equal Footing.
Relationships are best when both partners are on a level playing field. In the past, the man was the one in control in a relationship. However, that is not the case in the modern day. Though the situation has changed, it has led to confusion during dating. Being a new phenomenal, equality might make new relationships difficult. This might pose a challenge at the start of a relationship and could have an impact on how a relationship progress. A look at the not so distant past could show how dating has changed today as compared to the past. In the past, it was expected that making decisions and paying off bills was to be done by men. Fewer women, however, are looking for those qualities nowadays. If a man gets control in such a way today; many women get irritated.
Most of the men, however, often go back to the tried and tested methods of the past as they have not been able to adopt to the changes. The uncertainties brought about by the new changes are the cause. A majority of men have found it difficult to cope. Since they are the ones who have gone through the changes, women should be proactive in setting the right tone. One of the important considerations that should be done by a lady is what they are looking for in the relationship. If all the lady wants is to have fun, they should enjoy themselves since they are the ones making that decision. For a majority of women though, that is no longer the cases. Preparing to have the dream date is what on the mind for most of them.
One of the new roles that have been conferred to women is planning. This is different from the past where men were the ones who decided what happened on the first date. That no longer happens nowadays since both have equal responsibilities. In order for a man not to feel controlled by a lady, she should avoid making suggestions about a date. Since most ladies are not used to picking date locations, it’s important to allow the man decide about it. This gives a good idea of his likes and also gives him chance to feel in control.In planning for the second dates, the ideas of the first date should help make it better. In making the second date more fun, a lady could pick clues of the first date and put them into use.
During a date, the question of who is to pay the bill is an important issue to consider today. Men today are not obligated to pay the bills. Its traditional thinking that women should not pay their bills on a date.
