I have the privilege of chatting with Debra Fileta of TrueLoveDates.com this week! She is a licensed professional counselor who specializes in dating, marriage, and relationship issues, as well as mental health disorders. She’s also the author of True Love Dates, Choosing Marriage, and Love in Every Season! We chat about everything from the dating mistakes that are holding you back to why it’s okay for a woman to initiate a relationship.
“You’re not born knowing how to engage in healthy relationships; it’s something you have to work on and train and educate and grow.”
6 Reasons it’s Okay for a Woman to Initiate a Relationship
“The problem is, when we go into relationships with that mentality that a woman shouldn’t initiate, you end up creating a culture of passive women.”
“When we’re only responding, we’re not actually aware of what we want and need.”
