During the past two and a half years doing my Podcast Kat on the Loose Sex, Dating & Relationships, I have noticed that there are certain issues women still feel bad about this day and age…and it is way past the time we normalize them!!
So here they are...
1 . NORMALIZE BEING AS SUCCESSFUL OR MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN YOUR PARTNER –
Long gone are the days that women were simply housewives and men were the sole financial providers. Nowadays it is completely normal to see women becoming very successful entrepreneurs and excelling in their businesses – and many times making more money than their men.
So please do not feel bad or apologize If that is your case. If a man is intimidated by how much you make, by how successful or career driven you are, he is not the man for you!
2. NORMALIZE BEING INDEPENDENT –
And I am not only talking financially but also emotionally. Being in a relationship is wonderful, but it does not mean you need to forget about your individual needs. I see so many women giving up their hobbies, their friends, and their passions – to spend their entire time with their partner. Everyone is entitled to time alone, their own interests and activities – and that will only strengthen your relationship. Most men love a woman who has a life apart from their time together, and a lot of exciting things going on!
3. NORMALIZE WANTING TO HAVE GREAT SEX –
This is still such a taboo topic to so many women out there, it is just unbelievable…just as much as men are comfortable talking about it and asking for it, women need to be as well. A lot of people grew up in cultures where sex is not something you bring up in conversations, but the more freely and open you are with your partner, the better your sexual life will be – and that is healthy not just for men, but for women as well! Wanting to have great sex does not make you a bad person!!
4. NORMALIZE ASKING FOR WHAT YOU WANT IN EVERY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP –
So many of us are so used to taking a back seat to our partners, many times we forget to speak up. So whatever it is that you want/need from your date/partner, communicate!
Communication is so important and one of the top reasons why couples do not stay together…on today’s episode of my Podcast I talk about ways to communicate more effectively with my guest Writer and Podcaster Joe Pardavila.

5. NORMALIZE TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR AGE, WEIGHT, LOOKS, AND BEING PROUD OF IT!!
This one should go without saying but it’s the number one complaint out there from men on dating apps - don’t start anything with a lie - nothing that starts based on lies will work out in the long run.
If you lie about your age, about how you look, your weight, your height, your financial status; if you lie about your appearance and alter your photos too much, it is guaranteed that this potential relationship will not go anywhere.
Whoever you are going to meet needs to like you for you, so don’t cover it up - put yourself out there, be brave, be kind, be nice, and the right person will really appreciate you for who you are.
We need to be with someone who appreciates us, the good the bad, flaws, and all – because of course nobody is perfect!
