Female roles in dating

06 Nov

Despite women’s rising financial strength, a Nerd Wallet study finds, men are still expected to pay for everything from first dates to monthly bills.

The Nerd Wallet study asked more than 1,000 people across the United States who have been living with their partners for at least six months a range of questions regarding attitudes and responsibilities about cash.

These new realizations can be the impetus for more shared roles at work and at home but this new consciousness and wholeness begins with dating. Are they attracted to a woman who makes more or is more successful at their career?

What if she suggests a date idea or offers a differing opinion?

In the past, women were attracted to men who could protect and provide and men were attracted to beautiful fertile, nurturing women.

Men were reportedly more focused on work and women upon relationships.

The feedback would sound something like this: “She didn’t give me enough [insert need]” or “He didn’t care about the fact that I [insert need].” In relationships, people often get so busy trying to get their own needs met that they forget about the unique needs their partners have, too.While researchers have long examined the dating and mate selection patterns among young adults, the vast majority have utilized Western samples.In order to further our understanding of the changing nature of dating behaviors and attitudes, this study examines a sample of young Chinese adults and focuses upon the gender differences therein.Dating and romantic relationships are a normal, yet essential, part of life during the adolescent and early adult years.Beyond the basic desires which most individuals experience during this time, researchers have noted the relative significance of dating, not only for individuals but also for societies.
