Season 3, Episode 2 – “Are men scared of strong women?”
Welcome to “How to Love Successfully,” a podcast designed for accomplished female leaders ready to enrich their love lives, mirroring their professional success. I’m your host, Dr. Mari Kovanen, a seasoned psychologist and conscious dating coach. With 15 years of experience, I’ve helped individuals and couples navigate their relationships.
In this podcast episode, Dr Mari delves into the question, “Are men scared of strong women?” Dr Mari begins by addressing the concept of being a strong female leader and how this might affect dating experiences. The episode explores the idea of “strong women” as individuals who are career-focused, outspoken, and goal-oriented, often embodying a classic Type A personality. Dr Mari draws from her 15 years of clinical work and experience in therapy to shed light on the dynamics and energies that come into play in dating.
The episode emphasizes the importance of emotional safety and highlights that both men and women seek comfort and cues for safety during dates. It discusses the interplay of energies in relationships, such as the balance between the doer/provider/leader energy and the being/receiver/intuitive energy. Dr Mari emphasizes that a mismatch in these energies can lead to competition rather than a harmonious connection. The episode concludes by underlining the significance of healthy self-esteem and self-compassion in dating, encouraging strong women to shift gears from their work mode to a more relaxed and open mindset when dating.
