Dating can be very confusing for both men and women. The #MeToo movement has definitely helped a lot of women and men speak up about sexual assault and abuse. There needs to be a discussion on the subtilities of dating and sex. 

Redefining consensual consent encourages women to not play games and stand up for yourself.  I am using my voice and platform to empower women or remind women on how to speak up  and act in those ambiguous dating situations whether is telling a man to slow down or stop when your weren’t comfortable. It’s not a difficult rule to follow, and it should be the rule we all use going forward.

Many men are trying to learn and understand women’s experiences. A little common sense is appreciated and, I think, will lead to more sustained and durable change. We should all learn to communicate better (keep it 100 style) and stop being afraid of hurting each other’s feelings or disappointing expectations. Having a bad date where two people did not click is normal normal. Happens everyday. 

A lot of us have learned this the hard way - regretting letting ourselves get into situations beyond where we really wanted to go in our hearts, we were perhaps confused about what we wanted and didn't slow down long enough to figure things out. But when you let things keep going without leaving the situation - you have to take responsibility for your own discomfort.
