Should You Look For A Potentially Great Dad While You're Dating?

How Men Have Departed From Masculine Stereotypes:

  In my experience as a dating coach, some men and women are still pretty traditional.  Many singles are confused about gender roles when dating and some men and women are consciously departing from traditional gender stereotypes in order to create more equal romantic relationships.

Should Couples Share Domestic Work At Home?
