3. Taking The Lead Builds Emotional Muscle
This is important for the work he will have to do later. “Honey, we need to talk,” isn’t solely a woman’s responsibility. He has to be able to tackle the important topics that are crucial to a happy marriage: money, children, in-laws, career, and intimacy, to name a few. It starts early in dating when he takes the lead. He calls, he asks for real dates, and he initiates those “you and me” talks to take the relationship to the next level. She feels like she has a partner in the growth of their relationship for the future, and that makes her feel safe enough to go forward.
Taking the lead doesn’t mean taking control of her life or calling all the shots. That’s a sign of an insecure guy she will lose respect for later. Taking the lead means he sets his sights on her, and he’s willing to do what it takes to win her love.
A guy who wants to win big and marry up doesn’t text for “hang out, booty call” dates, nor does he sit back and wait for her to make the moves. When he meets the right woman, he gladly steps up, takes the lead, and offers real love. A good guy relishes the role of leadership in dating. It’s natural for him, and there’s nothing better for a woman than the delicious feeling of being courted. So let him do it! You’ll love dating, and you’ll love the relationship you get.
