In this short video, Lana Reid asks, Are you ready to be a girlfriend, wife, significant other to a man? She describes an example of a friend who wanted a relationship where the man worked, and she stayed home. However, over the course of time, Lana revealed her friend wanted to stay home but didn’t have anything to offer while her man was out working. Lana stresses how critical it is to consider what you are offering to your potential partner while you consider what you want in that partner. If things are not balanced, the relationship won’t be one of equals. For example, if a woman wants to be with a very ambitious man, she simply can’t be complacent. She needs to meet him equally in the things she wants from him. Finally, Lana asks the critical question: Are you in a position to be mentally and emotionally ready for a relationship? Take a listen.
