Kevin Mc Cardle, a professor at UCLA in the School of Management of all places, has a short and very clever reflection in the online edition of America magazine this week.

I probably don’t need to tell you that it’s tough to navigate the dating world as a feminist.

Although we don’t want our primary role while dating to become being a Feminism 101 instructor, I think it’s exciting to remember that we can open up the world of feminism to those we are intimate with.

Isn’t sharing your interests and ideas with one another a huge part of dating anyway?

In all honesty, what I said above about remembering the possibility for feminist evolution should be taken with a grain of salt. Because my efforts to engage my dating peers in conversation about feminism have been dismissed or laughed at too many times for me to romanticize it.

You’ll know the best way to introduce your feminist identity to those you’re dating or romantically interested in.

But their willingness to engage with them in a thoughtful and sincere manner was what I really paid attention to.

Come up with a framework of negotiables and non-negotiables to employ when you hit the dating scene.
