“I am giving 5 stars Because this podcast has some genuinely great tips for dating and has caused me to re-examine some of my tactics, which I appreciate. However, I do have some thoughts: 1) I disagree with the idea that setting a boundary with a man by the way of saying what you need is an ultimatum. My last relationship lasted almost 7 years and would never have happened at all had I not said what I wanted and needed. Ultimately, it wasn’t the right fit in the end, but it was beautiful while it lasted and In it I really learned to be vulnerable and share my truth and also allow him to do the same.
Unless I am misunderstanding this note that you’ve given to multiple women who have said to men that they’re looking for a relationship, I think this is very disempowering advice. Can you clarify? 2) I have an issue with the most recent episode you put out about women not supporting women in their success’s. It’s clear from listening that you have had some bad experiences with female friends and them not celebrating you...I am sorry you’ve gone through that. However, just because that is your experience, doesn’t mean that’s the norm. Yes, there are some women who let jealousy get the best of them, but there are also some who will become your greatest ally in life, career and love. The same way you advocate for women not categorizing all guys as bad just because they have had a bad experience or experiences, I really think you need to give women the same benefit of the doubt. In my life I have been lucky to always have so many women champion me. This stereotype that women cannot support each other needs to be rooted out, just the same as the idea that there are no good men. Neither are true. Consider the fact that by sharing ideas like this, you are becoming a part of that false narrative. Instead of making a sweeping generalization, maybe just state that it is your own experience. Again, love so many parts of the show and your advice, but those two things have made my ears perk up and I’d love for you to examine your viewpoint on them or explain more deeply.”
