I have heard some women confess to fear of losing their guy if they push him, how many other reasons are there? Fear of failure? Never did it before?

Admin Confession time. Leading made me grow up. I spent years trying to be taken care of. Trying not to make decisions even when I knew I could make better ones. I had to become the leader when it came to the kids. I certainly respect a man who does lead the family when he isn't sure which way is best for everyone. Just leading myself has been some lesson. When others are counting on you to lead, it adds pressure to the leader. Once you come to terms with the leadership position, you really know that you have to do it. So, in my case, I pulled up my big girl panties and got on with the show.

"Society, American society in particular, was not ready to accept strong women in leadership positions in the corporate world, let alone in the family setting. And I think, that's why most women don't talk about their FLR because it is not mainstream, it is not depicted in the media, and in some circles it is still viewed as deviant behavior (if you can believe that!)." - a quote from my interview on this website

I think it is because people don't understand something new and are willing to heap all sorts of criticism on you when they haven't a clue. FLR isn't the easiest thing to explain over cocktails. I will talk to folks if they ask me, because they've noticed our dynamic. But most people are fairly clueless; they see what they want to see. Also, I don't like abuse put on my man about not being a "real man" because I lead the relationship. If anything he is more of a man than those typical swaggering bulls, because he is solid and protective of me while providing me exactly what I want provided. Hope this helps

Liv It is tough to explain anything sexual to others but just leading is a God given right to those in the lead. I wish it were universally accepted - we need to keep trying to break those barriers.

Gat1207 there are safety reasons - very basic. If you don't lead you can't be hurt by it. Common to passive agressives. Nothing ventured nothing lost.

Gat1207 we all are afraid of leadership. We are afraid to bluster, that our foolishness is laid bare. We prefer to hide instead of playing our cards. FLR encourages leadership in a safe environment. She learns to lead because she receives his support and encouragement. FLR grows self confidence in her. Self confidence because he submits to her well being and personal growth. If you are afraid to lead ask him to pamper you first. Accept his support in growing your self confidence. Then learn to lead by simply speaking your mind. Male dominated culture confuses leadership with superiority. FLR leadership is based on innate female qualities. A woman learns to lead in growing her self confidence her trust in herself. She leads by speaking her mind supported by her deeper understanding of him and herself and her better knowledge of what needs to be done to amend what is. Create a situation where you and he feel safe and he vows to accept and embrace you. Then simply express yourself.

Buntekuh Why do you think that Women must learn to lead. I think they know how to lead better than men. After all my women has me doing whatever she wants but if you ask her if we have an FLR she will say no. Perfect your foolishness is never laid bare but she gets pretty much what she wants. I like your words but I no believe that women need little help, maybe a bunch of encouragement, in leadership.
