Dating gender dynamics

Sarah Walton was likely hoping you would make this mistake when she wrote the screenplay for the film The Dating Ring.

It's not uncommon for women to pay for themselves, initiate messaging, and even sex.

I started writing the answer to this post and before I could type a word, realized I had no idea what the answer was.

So I polled women I knew and respected of various marital statuses.

My blue eyes that have a slightly cynical outlook, my hips that are 2 sizes too big, sarcastic leanings and an extreme love for NCIS are what really defines me 😉 ): My role as a divorced single mom, I feel, is to seek healing, honest-to-goodness, soul-changing healing.

This healing takes time, pain, time, trust in God, time, and patience…oh, and time. Do what I dreamed of, go on adventures, ask people all sorts of questions, reflect, seek and live!

Here, a woman assumes a dominant role, but this is only to avoid being treated as a subordinate.

Ironically, this makes the woman more subordinate because she assumes if he pays for dinner, she will need to repay him with a physical token of affection.

Straying away from that call (which could mean taking control, impatiently initiating yourself, etc.) can mislead, confuse or awaken love too soon.

It appears gender equality exists in relationships, but a new study published in has found looks can be deceiving.

Laina Bay-Cheng, study author, and Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Buffalo noted men and women were equally likely to see themselves as "wearing the pants" in a relationship, but there were implications in these power differences.

Exploring the dynamic of a relationship between a female boxer and a male librarian, Sarah wanted to challenge both herself and the audience to see these characters as unique and not just another gender assumption.
