I was taught that a lady does not call men...
And I am not sure if it was/is a wise teaching... but I have found it as a useful guide in general!
I am outgoing, strong willed, and can be quite opinionated... at times... I can also be quiet and aloof when in that mood! (I make myself out to be wonderful! ) I worry at times that I will dominate a man. And find men who do whatever I want or rely on me to be the initiator in communication or activities to be a turn off. I have used my mother's rule as a guide and indicator. If they are courageous enough to contact me, call me, pursue a relationship with me, then I think the man might be able to communicate with me effectively and in a way where I won't feel like I am making all the decisions or dominating him. My brothers tease me about this! They pray that I find a man "who will put me in my place." They, of course, say this in a teasing manner and do not mean it in the derogatory manner as the phrase is intended. They want me to find a loving, holy man who happens to be of an equally strong will!
I am pretty strong willed. I am strong willed in going after my interests and my work. I think we have to be in this day and age to get through various parts of our lives in the working world and in society in general. I think that we all hope to meet a man we can trust to lead. How does that sound?
