When it comes to relationships, have you ever heard the phrase, “women should not initiate”? This is all too common advice, and unfortunately, it’s advice that comes with a lot of controversy as well as negative repercussion. So should women initiate? And what does that look like in dating, as well as in marriage?
The bad relationship advice series continues at TrueLoveDates.com by unpacking this relationship advice and why it can actually wreak havoc on your relationship in the long run.
Should Women Initiate?
I’m joined by my friend and author, Phylicia Masonheimer, as we tag-team this important subject.
Both Phylicia and I heard and applied this bad relationship advice that women should not initiate at different points in our lives, and in this episode we each unpack how it impacted our respective marriages, discuss why we think this is bad advice, and then offer you a healthier alternative to relationships.
If you’re a woman who has ever wondered about a woman initiating in a relationship, or if you’re a man who has ever had questions about this topic, you don’t want to miss this candid episode that’s not only grounded in psychology, but in biblical truth.
