We have evolved over the years in many areas: hygiene, technology, education, and many more. We’ve also evolved in schools of thought, including the women’s rights movement. Women have made major contributions to society, such as Angela Davis and Elaine Brown (officials in the Black Power Movement), Condoleezza Rice and Hilary Clinton ( government officials for the United States) and Sonya Sotomayor (the first Latina Justice on the Supreme Court). This girl power has motivated many young women, myself included!
BUT this is not even the meat of the convo I want to have today!! Ladies, does this girl power overflow into our relationships with the opposite sex in positive or negative ways? We literally can do anything we put our minds to including being intentional in our dating relationships, however, what is effective and what isn’t?
I know me personally, I am a reserved person and typically when I get to know the opposite sex, it is initiated by the male. In some instances, I’ve initiated with the opposite sex and its ended terribly! In my own experience, when I did this, the males didn’t take me as seriously and thought that I was not looking for a long term relationship, but more so a “fling” of sorts. However, I have friends who have gone after their men and have had fulfilling relationships. A friend of mine told me that “society has corrupted our minds into thinking that going after a male is press (desperate)”. And I agree with her; we are an evolving generation and the ideals our parents lived by are not the ones in place today.;however, as a woman, you can’t help but have reservations at times about what is too much…. Hmm. So I have questions for both my female and male readers…
Ladies: do you prefer a man pursue you, or you go after what you want? How do you perceive women who do/don’t go after what they want.
Gentlemen: is your view of a woman or her expectations from the relationship changed if she pursues you?
