This piece of advice comes from the brilliant Carlos Castenada. For those under 40, you may be unfamiliar with his work. He wrote a series of books between the 1970s and 1990s. Castenada apprenticed with a Mexican shaman and wrote about it in his books. His work is filled with wisdom and adventure. As well, it’s probably more applicable today than ever.
I learned these actor tricks and techniques while I was making my rounds as an amateur actor in NYC. I can tell they do work!

Women are often made to feel pressured by society or their families to get married and have kids.
Traditionally, this would mean that she would take on the primary care-giving role for the child(ren) while her husband went out and brought home the bacon. As a result, women who worked and stayed single often received pity or concern from others. You’ll want to make sure she knows you respect her.
Many women in a relationship feel like they have to hold back saying things to their men. Things they want to say but may bother him to hear. Learn how to communicate better with the woman you’re with.
Basically, by pushing I mean when men try to control a woman or over step her boundaries. I hope that doesn’t sound too vague. It’s critical men understand the balance between pushing and backing off.
