Equal effort is especially important during the beginning stages of a relationship, when a woman is relying on momentum and natural progression. Women still want Men to Take Initiative and Take the Lead It may seem old fashioned, but women are turned on by a man who takes the lead – or at least take notice of him. Going back to our parent’s generation, it was often expected of men to take the lead.
In 2014, men believe women should take the lead sometimes too.
It’s also a way for a man to effortlessly create the false intimacy needed in order to keep women on the hook and string them along.
If his way of telling you he likes you or misses you is via text message, and he’s not making plans to see you, or calling you, or proving it, then he is the type of man who will probably break up with you via text message too. He gets to have you when he wants you, and all he had to do was move his thumbs for a few seconds.
He may even subconsciously lose interest because it was too easy. Knowing that a man does not respect anything easily attained can sometimes guard women from taking initiative themselves. Modern Women still Melt for Chivalry Why is chivalry practically dead?
Most likely because these days, a cute text message can be considered romantic, and even though women really appreciate cute texts, texting is easy – and lazy.
A woman who is being treated well by her man has a glow about her. Putting forth effort (even in very small but consistent ways) makes a world of difference in any relationship. Women know that Men don’t Respect anything Easily Attained It’s a catch-22.
