I do think if you start the realtionship pursuing the woman, you will spend the realtionship that same way. In many cases you may find yourself chasing a woman who wants to be there but is constantly running away, because "it has always been this way"

Turn it around. Do you think the following is real, healpful, meaningful advice for women? "A relationship can only work if you love him more than he loves you."

Nonsense.

I think that many men would be content with having a steady FWB relationship, and then having the extra free time to hang out with their guy friends doing guy stuff. I've seen many relationships where the women are keeping the focus on having regular time together and keeping the mood romantic. The women are more into being in love. Otherwise, their guys would be content just to have a more laid back situation. Sex is enough, and they don't need to be in love to do that. So basically, if the women didn't require being loved back, most men would be fine with that. Women keep most relationships moving towards that goal of marriage and kids. Especially when both are in their early 20's.

So you're saying men don't need to give love at all?
Ouch....I'm not even a man and that hurts. It makes men sound so cold.

I think it's best if both partners have similar love for one another, and work to keep the love strong on both ends. An imbalance can make both end up frustrated and dissatisfied.

I could not be with someone who didn't love me as much as I did them. I don't think I could tolerate it. If there's imbalance, it better be him adoring me, or I am not committing.

I thought I made it clear that I was talking about young couples and young men in their early 20's. Young men are very hormone driven. They also are more interested in playing the field when they are young.

Women are usually ready to nest sooner than the men they are dating.

In all my years I've never heard such a thing. How silly.
