On the topic of leadership in our relationship, she said, "women can effectively lead in relationships...it's just not typically done."
I told her she couldn't even lead a conversation in our relationship and issued her a challenge to do so for only 15 min.
The topic was anything including sports to soap operas. The bet was a home-cooked dinner.
When I say, "fail," it does not describe the next 5 minutes of what looked to be torture as she tried to direct & steer the conversation to keep it flowing.
I took a totally reactive verbal stance, didn't say more than what was required to answer any questions, and nodded in agreement to minor points.
Her reply after only 5 min: "geez...keeping a woman interested in you when you first meet her must be HARD AS HELL!" My reply...try doing it to a girl that thinks she's too cute, is acting stuck up just because, etc and then try to be funny as well.
Give this challenge to your lady, see how she does, let us know.
