Is Romance Dead?
When it comes to women being attracted ( including the most successful women), they look for someone to be assertive. Verbeeck says
“Although we’ve evolved towards being more equal, there is still a lot of work to be done towards true gender equality. Nonetheless, we must embrace that men and women are different, in the same way we embrace that each of us is different on an personal level. In order to pursue true equality, women do not need to “become masculine”. Instead, we must embrace our differences and our natural state of being, whether that be feminine, transgender or something else – and own it. We cannot and should not defer from who we are at our core and our genetic predisposition. I notice nearly all the women I work with are looking for someone who will take charge. Someone who she can look up to.”
Women look for men that are stronger than she is in some aspect, whether it be physically, professionally, or in something else entirely.
Inga Verbeeck’s Tip to Modern Men
Verbeeck’s tip to modern men: “Be a gentleman. Learn how to court a woman in a romantic situation, and not just for sex. At the same time, while women don’t want to be dominated or disrespected, be a bit more of an alpha. Be assertive but be respectful. Don’t be afraid to take charge in any situation, and of course we’re always looking for men to make the first move.” As with all things in life, balance is key. In a world of ying and yang, men and women have always balanced each other out. I think it’s time we return to this truth and celebrate it.” Learn more about relationship Inga Verbeeck and how she can help you meet your match by visiting her website.
