I don’t normally like dating advice to women from women. Usually, such advice is hateful and antagonistic, rather than actually being empowering. This is because I don’t think people, in general, are self aware enough to provide good constructive advice to others like themselves. As a result, it becomes an “us and them” spew fest.
Every now and then, though, I’ll come across a gem that I think is worth sharing. Amy Young provides advice exactly as it should be provided, she gives advice about having first date sex if you should or shouldn’t, there’s no hard rule on when to have sex on the first date, but there are some telltale signs that can help you determine if you should try for sex or not., she is articulate, intelligent, and really gets to the heart of the issue. She doesn’t respond with antagonism, but instead, responds with an actual understanding of what’s going on. Her understanding translates into an actual plan for how to respond as well.
Call this post male privilege, or whatever you want. I do think I’m in a position to provide constructive relationship advice to men and women alike. I’ve done it for numerous people, and the advice works. I also share great advice on pluc the other people provide, and Amy Young is definitely one of those people. Her words apply to men and women alike, so watch her video, and learn a little something.
