Of course. How else would you get anything done? Lol. In all seriousness though, for serious future planning, someone does have to take charge and start planning and making moves. I'm not saying like bowl over your partner and do whatever you want without taking their opinions into consideration, but yes, someone needs to take charge.
Well, there is nothing wrong in someone taking charge of the relationship, it allows the other person to relax and play the support role. It doesn't really matter as long as the relationship remains healthy, friendly and also lovely.
There is nothing wrong in woman taking charge as well
Usually, guys would be the ones in charge of their relationships. But I guess some ladies pretty to be the one in charge, other times it's kind of a struggle where both people want to be in charge and make all the decisions, planning and calling all the shots and then when they don't agree, they would fight over it.
In my opinion , If someone has to take charge during the relationship then the other person has to put in a little more effort because she might start to feel like you don't like her as much or you aren't as committed as she is.
I think both sides should agree on what needs to be done and if it isn't clear after a while, I stop kicking it with them , because I have put all I had in a relationship before, and she used me and broke up with me. Trying my best not to go down that road again.
