The archetype of the virgin has been misunderstood. Originally, virgins such as Aphrodite and Artemis were not so much celibate as they were self-possessed, independent, and whole unto themselves. Their dedication to their own passions was part of their allure. They would never bend over backwards for a man.

With the so-called sexual liberation movement, women have more freedom to be the pursuer, chase men, ask men out, and have casual sex without reproach. But, does dating like a man really work?

In 1995, the book The Rules: Time-Tested Secrets for Capturing The Heart of Mr. Right burst on the scene and became an instant bestseller. In it, authors Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider argue for a return to the more traditional form of dating (man pursues woman). It struck a chord with millions of women, because it felt right and … It works!

Many say it is anti-feminist to expect a man to court you, pursue you, pay for dates, open doors, and initiate marriage. This is based on the assumption that these behaviors are grounded in the idea of the woman as the ‘weaker sex’ (dependent) and the man as the leader (independent).

But, is it possible that in-fact these behaviors demonstrate an honoring of Woman that the more modern tit-for-tat way of dating does not?

Is it possible that holding boundaries, making a man earn your love and attention, and being hard to get is not so much about being weak, but is actually a way to maintain your autonomy and avoid draining your energy?

Most women still desire a steady, loving relationship with a man who is crazy about them. But, millions waste years with men who will never commit or in a marriage that actually diverts her from her own life’s purpose.

In this presentation, we will discuss why chivalry, being hard to get, and doing The Rules® is actually the most empowering way to find love. It puts power back in the woman’s hands – where it belongs.

Charlotte Cressey, a certified Rules Coach will explain why “The Rules” work and for a different reason than you may think.
