We know that being in 21st century; it is no more a guy’s job only to approach a girl or ask her out, even girls can do it. But the question is how comfortable you are taking the lead?

Act like your opinion is important
We are told often when we present our opinion to stay quiet or being tagged as annoying. Guys are supported to voice their opinion while a girl keeps on thinking should I say this or not? Maybe some other time! Putting you point is a sign of dominance and confidence and these are considered to be masculine traits. We should learn to speak freely and our thoughts too should be valued.
