Relationships are best when both partners are on a level playing field. Man was the one in control in a relationship in the past. However, that is not the case in the modern day. Though the situation has changed, it has led to confusion during dating. Since women equality is a relatively new phenomenon, partners in a new relationship might find it difficult balancing things. This might pose a challenge at the start of a relationship and could have an impact on how a relationship progress. Comapring the past and what is happening today, it can be noted that things have changed. 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. In fact, a majority of women get irritated if a man gets control in such a way today.
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. This is due to the uncertainty brought by the new changes. A majority of men have found it difficult to cope. That being the case, women should be proactive in setting the right tone since they are the ones who have gone through the changes. One of the questions that a lady should ask herself is what is the objective of being in the relationship. They should enjoy themselves if they all want is fun since they are the ones making that decision. It is no longer the case for women to be in a relationship for the just to have fun. Most of them think of how a dream date should be and set to make it happen.
One of the new roles that have been conferred to women is planning. Today things are different from the way they happened in the past where men were the ones who decided on the details of the date. Making of decisions concerning dates is no longer left to men alone. Throwing a suggestion about a date by a lady in many cases makes it appear she is the one in charge. Since most ladies are not used to picking date locations, it’s important to allow the man decide about it. This gives him chance to feel in control and the lady gets the chance to know his taste.Ideas gotten from the first date should help to organize a better second date. What the man said and did on the first date should help a lady make the second date fun.
Paying of bills is another issue of importance nowadays during dating. It is not obligations for men to pay bills. Its traditional thinking that women should not pay their bills on a date.
