I was perusing Men’s Health this morning, seeing what words of wisdom it was doling out to its readers these days when I found something that may actually be of more “help” to a female audience.

When it comes to dating, men should make the plans. I think this would solve a lot of dating drama. Men have a natural knack for making plans, be them Death Star attack strategies, bank heists, or prison breakouts. But I’m not here to reinforce gender norms, much.
