I’m A Feminist But I Still Want A Guy To Do These 12 Things When We’re Dating

Posted on

4. BE PROTECTIVE.

I’m not anyone’s property or a prize to be won, and there’s a huge difference between being a little protective and getting jealous or intrusive of your privacy. However, I like when a guy knows I’m not easy to get and he’s proud to be with me. I like it when a guy gets a little territorial. It means he really cares about me and wants to make sure I stay his.

5. SLOW DANCE WITH ME.

What happened to facing each other when dancing?? I hate this my-back-to-his-front nonsense—it’s sweaty and gross. I went to a wedding this fall with my boyfriend and we actually danced together, including holding hands, and twirling, and dipping. It was more fun than I’ve ever had dancing in a club and way more romantic.

6. MAKE THE FIRST MOVE.


If I want a guy and he’s being really slow to catch on, by all means, I go for it. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, but I do think guys should have the courage to be able to make the first move. I want to feel wanted and if a guy is bold enough to dive in, it’s all the more attractive.

7. CALL, DON’T TEXT.

Everyone communicates through texting now—that’s just how it is. If I see someone is calling me, I’m either convinced something terrible happened or I ignore the call and text them instead. The exception here is for a guy I’m interested in. I love it when he calls. It shows maturity because there’s nothing to hide behind. It means he wants to hear my voice, and there’s something so much sexier about talking over the phone than reading a message.
