What relationship advice does a professional matchmaker give her daughter about men and relationships — and what can the rest of us learn from her? Dating coach and owner of Dinner for Two Katja Rembrandt has spent 30 years helping men and women play the dating game. She understands matchmaking as well as Redhe and she has five pieces of advice. We encourage girls and women to be educated and ambitious, to kick-arse in the boardroom, but then expect them to play a subservient role in their relationship.
We need men to be raised with a stronger sense of self so that they can appreciate and admire strong women rather than feel threatened by them.
We also need to redefine masculinity so that a man does not need to be dominant and controlling in order to feel worthy. Okay, okay, okay, so redefining masculinity so that the typical Aussie bloke can appreciate and admire female success, rather than feel threatened by it, is, at best, a couple of generations away.
Women are socialised to date up. Whether we are prepared to admit it or not, many of us believe that men should be the head of the household, and should be stronger, richer, higher status, and more successful than us. They might want to meet you for business contracts, but not as a future partner.
Rembrandt encourages women to look for, and appreciate, the value of partners who are willing to support their success rather than compete with it. These men may have lower incomes and lower status. Settling is when you lower your standards and effectively put your needs second. But he's a great guy.
We put a lot of effort into finding our perfect job. We do our research, we plan, we expect it to take time and effort. But when it comes to finding our prefect partner many people leave it to fate, chance or serendipity. Rembrandt says that we should treat the process of finding a partner as somewhere between a job search and a game.
Something that doesn't make you feel like, 'Oh, my God, do I really have to do this? Unfortunately — and infuriatingly — women are often faced with social stigma of being single. This is bad enough for women who choose to be single, but for women who would prefer to be partnered it can really eat away at their self-worth. It happens. And if you happen to be single again in your 30s or 40s or 50s or 60s or 70s it may be regrettable.
Hopefully you learned something from that process. You just happen to be single at this time. Writer, author of 'Something and Over It'. View more articles from Kasey Edwards.
