Politicians, pioneers, superstars: these 20 women who marked the decade



Whether through their power, their convictions, their speeches or their media coverage, some women have established themselves as essential personalities of the 2010s. Portraits.

They marked the decade with a hot iron. Whether they are leading politicians, pioneers in their field, fierce defenders of great causes, or stars adored on social networks. Whether they change the world, or entertain it. If we had to retain only a few – a subjective and non-exhaustive selection of course – here are the 20 women who shaped the 2010s.

Greta Thunberg: we’re serious when we’re 17

Her steel blue gaze is enough to lower the eyes of politicians when she talks to them about CO2 and deforestation. Greta Thunberg arrived a little late on the scene of the decade, but in a few months has become an incarnation of the fight against global warming, in particular the spokesperson for a youth increasingly aware of this topic.

On December 4, 2018, the young Swede speaks at COP24 , the United Nations summit on climate change. Since then, she has also spoken in particular before the British Parliament and the French National Assembly. Always with the same maturity, the same aplomb, the same seriousness. On December 11, the one who will blow out her 17th candle on January 3, is named personality of the year 2019 by Time magazine.

ALSO VISIT Who Is The Most Famous Person In The World

Yes, 2010 is still the decade of Angela Merkel, the most powerful politician in the world. Since 2005, the figure of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) has been Federal Chancellor of Germany. Merkel has been named “the most powerful woman in the world” thirteen times by Forbes magazine.

On several occasions weakened , in particular by the setback of the CDU / CSU in the 2017 federal elections, the 65-year-old leader is still holding up. But will the 2020 decade also be placed under the sign of Angela Merkel? Nothing is less certain: the Chancellor has promised that her current term, which ends in 2021, will be her last.

Malala Yousafzai: the school of peace

In 2012, after leaving school in Pakistan, Malala Yousafzai was the victim of an assassination attempt. Targeted in particular because of a blog that she maintains for the BBC, where she describes acutely life under the Taliban yoke, and in particular the oppression of women. Despite the bullet going through her neck and skull, she survives. Since then, Malala Yousafzai has continued her fight against religious extremism and for the right to education. She also fights for the education of young girls all over the world. In 2014, at only 17, she won the Nobel Peace Prize , becoming the youngest winner in the history of the prize.

Simone Biles: Triple Golden Saltos

If there was an athlete to be retained, it would be her. At 22, Simone Biles redefined the notion of the limit in gymnastics , with formidable consistency throughout the decade. Quadruple Olympic champion in Rio. Five-time world champion in the general gymnastics competition, in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2018 and 2019. But why the hell did she not win anything in 2016 and 2017? Don’t look, she had taken a year off. It’s simple: with 25 awards, Simone Biles is the most medal-winning gymnast in history on the world stage. All that’s missing is a few gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics to start the 2020 decade on the right foot.

Emma Gonzalez: disarming

Her face, covered in tears of sadness and rage, struck. In March 2018, Emma Gonzalez gives a poignant speech during the “March for our lives”. Over a million Americans gathered to say stop gun killings. A month earlier, Emma Gonzalez escaped the shooting in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen high school students killed with semi-automatic weapons by a former student.

The young woman calls out Donald Trump , pointing out, according to her, his inaction and becomes a spokesperson for the “Never again” movement: “never again”. Emma Gonzalez has since been a key figure in the fight against the “National Riffle Association” (NRA), the all-powerful lobby defending the carrying of firearms in the United States.

First woman appointed Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from 2011 to 2019, recently appointed President of the European Central Bank (ECB), first holder of this post without training as an economist or experience as a central banker, Christine Lagarde, 63, Lawyer by profession, former vice-champion of France in synchronized swimming, has learned to coordinate and to impose herself in a very masculine world. All this while being relatively popular: 63% of French people have a positive opinion of Christine Lagarde, according to a poll published in July. Enough to come back to play a political role at the national level? Nothing is less certain: 7 out of 10 think that she would not make a good President of the Republic.

Theresa May: this way the exit

She was up against the wall as he threatened to collapse. After months of political chaos in Great Britain and heartbreak over Brexit, Theresa May resigned as Prime Minister on May 24, 2019, on the verge of tears, outside the door at 10 Downing Street. At 62, she took the head of government in July 2016, in the wake of the referendum which saw the British vote 52% in favor of leaving the European Union. An exit that the former Prime Minister paid for and which now seems inevitable, after his successor Boris Johnson triumphed this December by winning a majority in the British Parliament.

Christiane Taubira: Sed Lex

Its face will remain that of one of the laws that undoubtedly unleashed the most passions during the decade : the one opening marriage to same-sex couples, approved by the National Assembly on May 17, 2013. Christiane Taubira marked the memories by his speeches and his fiery responses to the opposition: sometimes lapidary and wrathful, “you don’t know that there is as much love in a homosexual couple as in a heterosexual couple!”, sometimes lyrical and invoking poets like Verlaine or Aimé Césaire. Talented oratory recognized by her supporters and detractors. Since then, Christiane Taubira has been more discreet. But she remains adored by a part of the left, who is still hoping for a return to the prominent political scene.

Dilma Rousseff: the harder the fall

The death knell sounds in 2016 for Dilma Rousseff , first woman invested president of Brazil in January 2011. The head of state is dismissed, accused of having disguised the public accounts. Nicknamed the “Iron Lady”, like a certain Margaret Thatcher before her, Dilma Rousseff was known for her strong temperament and praised for her capacity for work, before seeing her popularity rating drop below 10% , after her name has been linked to the corruption scandal of the oil company Petrobras. Former guerrilla tortured under the military dictatorship, dubbed and pushed by her predecessor President Lula, Dilma Rousseff left her mark on the 2010 decade. By her rise, as by her fall.

Marine Le Pen: in Papa’s footsteps

Her electoral successes attest to this: during this decade Marine Le Pen consolidated the place of the National Front, which had become under her leadership the National Rally , in the French political landscape. His party won the European elections of 2014, the first round of the regional elections in 2015 … Not to mention the second round of the 2017 presidential election, 15 years after his father Jean-Marie Le Pen in 2002. Successes often attributed by observers to a “demonization” of the far-right movement. But will the party’s militant base crumble? According to a senior RN official, interviewed in May, the movement would only have 25,000 up-to-date members , against just over 30,000 at the start of the 2018 school year.

Peggy Whitson: A Life in the Stars

Photo Date: 06/24/09.Location: Bldg.8, Photo Studio.Subject: Peggy Whitson Official EMU Portrait

In 2016 and 2017, you have surely seen her posing alongside Frenchman Thomas Pesquet aboard the International Space Station. The NASA researcher, a doctoral student in biochemistry, is a veteran of space expeditions . With 665 days in total, Peggy Whitson holds the record for time spent in space for an American astronaut. From 1992 to 1995, she directed the scientific section of the Russian-American cooperation program Shuttle-Mir. Peggy Whitson is part of the long line of space pioneers, a line started by the Russian Valentina Tereshkova, the very first woman to go into space in 1963. Peggy Whitson also remains, to this day, the only woman to commanding the International Space Station.

Maryam Mirzakhani: math boss

You may not know her name, but Maryam Mirzakhani is the only female Fields Medal recipient, the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for mathematics. It was in 2014 that she won the award with three other researchers, for “her exceptional contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces”. To put it simply, the Riemann surface is a notion which makes it possible to take into account the singularities and the topological complications which accompany certain analytical extensions of holomorphic functions. Always not ? Short. With this medal, Maryam Mirzakhani marked a disciplinary field still seen, by some, as the preserve of men. Unfortunately, the Iranian researcher passed away in 2017, at only 40 years old. By paving the way, no doubt, for a future generation of mathematicians .

Alyssa Milano: a hashtag to break the silence

Until now, she was best known for her role in the 2000s series Charmed. But, since 2017, Alyssa Milano has established herself as a fighter in the #MeToo movement , a hashtag dating from 2013 that she relaunched in 2017, following the wave of accusations leveled against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. “If you too have been harassed or sexually assaulted, reply ‘me too’, ‘me too’, to this tweet” :


Her partner in Charmed, Rose McGowan , also urged women to break the silence, being the first to accuse Harvey Weinstein. The actress has also published a vitriolic book, “Debout”, in which she denounces the hypocrisy of the Hollywood system. All this while refusing to mention the name of the producer: “we all know the name of the Monster, but I chose not to use it. I don’t like the name of the Monster. I refuse let it be in my book. ”

Susan Wojcicki: Say It With Views

Susan Wojcicki has been the “CEO”, including general manager, of the YouTube streaming video platform since 2014. We can easily understand why when we see the power and influence of Youtube today. Last year, the site had more than 1.9 billion connected users each month . At 51, Wojcicki, who sharpened her guns at Google, is often listed in the rankings of the world’s most powerful women. She is also considered by Time magazine as “The Most Powerful Woman on the Internet”.

Emma Watson: actress and feminist

“Him for her” . In July 2014, Emma Watson was appointed by UN Women “Goodwill Ambassador”. Since then, the actress has made the fight for gender equality one of her hobbies: “We are fighting for a united world, but the good news is that we have a united movement: ‘He for She ‘,’ Him for her ‘ , concludes the actress, citing the name of her solidarity campaign, at the end of a speech unanimously applauded by the United Nations. Model for teenage girls around the world in the Harry Potter saga, Emma Watson has become during the decade a feminist voice which, carried by her notoriety, resonates throughout the world. In February 2019, the Briton was one of the personalities gathered at the Élysée Palace, as part of the Council for Equality between Women and Men.

Beyoncé: African-American icon

Stage beast , capable of performing shows lasting several hours, dancing in high heels and shouting without weakening. 6 albums including 2, “Beyoncé” and “Lemonade”, acclaimed by the critics. A performance on the national anthem, during the inauguration of Barack Obama. Two over-publicized deliveries, in 2012 and 2017. The former member of the “Destiny’s Child” trio will have gone through the decade by strengthening her status as an essential star. Her hit “Formation”, to the glory of women and African-American culture , even became the most awarded song in history… ahead of a certain “Thriller” by Michaël Jackson.

Adele: royal voice

“Never mind, I’ll find someone like you” , “okay, I’ll find someone like you” laments Adele in her breakup anthem cult. Difficult, in any case, to find someone like the British artist. A star who, whatever she comes out, is sure to be a resounding success. Two albums released in 2011 and 2015, soberly titled “21” and “25”, sold respectively to 31 and 22 million copies worldwide. 15 Grammy Awards, the most prestigious musical award. On September 4, 2018, Adele receives her engraved stone at the Royal Albert Hall Walk of Fame, in London. At 31 and in a decade, the singer, who describes her musical style as “marked with his warm voice the history of music.

Rihanna: chameleon pop

Ok, “Riri” began to be rife in the 2000s. In 2005 precisely, with his hit Pon De Replay , before inviting us in 2007 to take refuge under his “Umbrella ” (ela, ela, eh, eh). But we have to face the facts: the last decade is clearly the one in which the Barbadian singer has consolidated her star position. Unifying hits like “We Found Love”, “Diamonds”, “Work” … Rihanna is the most certified artist in the history of digital music. But as singing songs that end at number 1 can be boring, Rihanna has also tried fashion. And again, the success is overwhelming. Teens are snapping up her beauty brand, Fenty Beauty, generated $ 500 million. Not to mention a fruitful partnership with the luxury brand LVMH. The Rihanna empire still has a bright future ahead of it.

Emilia Clarke: serial queen

Sometimes a role will suffice. In the 2000s, Emma Watson stuck to it by lending her features to Hermione Granger, the unforgettable witch best friend of Harry Potter. And in the 2010s, this cult role undoubtedly returned to Emilia Clarke. Emblematic face of the equally iconic ” Game of Thrones” series , which between 2011 and 2019 established itself as the series of the decade. Emilia Clarke is and remains, for now, Daenerys Targaryen. First of the name, Queen of Meereen, Overlord of the 7 Crowns, Protectress of the Kingdom, Mother of Dragons and Unburnt (for the short version). Or if not, call her “Khaleesi”: “queen”, in the language of the Dothraki people, and first name of thousands of little girls born in the decade.. To see if, like Emma Watson, Emilia Clarke will succeed in dissociating herself from a character who sticks to the skin. Spoiler : it could be complicated.

Kim Kardashian: the triumph of the void

Sometimes doing nothing is enough to mark a decade and in this game, Kim Kardashian is undoubtedly the big winner of the 2010s. Do nothing, okay, but on condition of being filmed and staging on social networks. It all started in 2007 for “Kim K”, with the reality TV show “Keeping up with the Kardashians”, or the 24 hour daily filmed daily of an American household. Since then, Kim Kardashian has taken advantage of the explosion of social networks to expand her media kingdom. They are 63 million on Twitter and 154 million on Instagram to follow his fittings and his idyllic vacations. Not to mention an ultra-commented wedding in 2016, with rapper Kanye West. And in 2014, a photo that “breaks the Internet”: Kim Kardashian who holds a glass precariously balanced on her bulky buttocks. Champagne, and wishing you a happy decade 2020.

Frederick Douglass Biography Wiki, Biography, Age, Career, Contact & Biography Information

Who Was Frederick Douglass?

Abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass was born into slavery sometime 1818 in Talbot County, Maryland. He became one of the most famous intellectuals of his day, advising presidents and lecturing to thousands on a variety of topics including women’s rights and Irish household rule.

Douglass’s writings include several autobiographies eloquently describing his experiences in slavery and his life after the Civil War, including the well-known work Tale of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave . He died on February 20, 1895. ADVERTISEMENT Thank you for watching! Visit the website
“Tale of Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave” He also subscribed to William Lloyd Garrison’s weekly diary The Liberator .

At Garrison’s urging, Douglass wrote and published his first autobiography, Tale of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave The book was a bestseller in the United States and has been translated into several European languages. ADVERTISEMENT Thank you for watching! Visit the ADVERTISING website Thank you for watching! Visit the website

Though Douglass’s work earned many fans, some critics expressed doubts that a former slave without formal training could have produced such elegant prose.

Other books by Frederick Douglass

Douglass published three versions of his autobiography during his lifetime, revising and expanding his work each time. My Servitude and Freedom was published in 1855. In 1881, Douglass published the Life and Times of Frederick Douglass , which he revised in 1892.


When was Frederick Douglass born?

Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey was born into slavery in Talbot County, Maryland, around 1818. The exact year and date of his birth is unknown, although later in life he decided to celebrate it on February 14th.


Douglass initially lived with his maternal grandmother, Betty Bailey. At a young age, Douglass was chosen to live in the home of the plantation owners, one of whom may have been his father.

His mother, who was present at times in his life, died when he was around 10 years old.

Learn to read and write

Despite a ban on teaching slaves to read and write, the Baltimore slave owner’s wife Hugh Auld taught Sophia Frederick Douglass the alphabet when he was about 12 years old. When Auld forbade his wife to offer more classes, Douglass continued to learn from white children and others in the neighborhood.

It was through reading that Douglass’ ideological opposition to slavery took shape. He read newspapers eagerly, searching for political writing and literature as much as possible. In later years, Douglass did well The Colombian Orator for clarifying and defining his views on human rights.

Douglass shared his newfound knowledge with other enslaved people. He was rented to William Freeland and taught other slaves on the plantation to read the New Testament at a weekly church service.

The interest was so great that more than 40 slaves attended classes each week. Although Freeland did not interfere with the class, other local slaveholders were less understanding. Armed with clubs and stones, they dispersed the community permanently.

When Douglass switched between the Aulds, he later had to work for Edward Covey, who had a reputation for being a “slave breaker”. Covey’s constant abuse almost broke 16-year-old Douglass mentally. Eventually, however, Douglass struggled in a scene that was powerfully portrayed in his first autobiography.

After losing a physical confrontation with Douglass, Covey never hit him again. Douglass tried twice to escape slavery before he succeeded.

Frederick Douglass: Wife and Children

Frederick Douglass married Anna Murray, a free black woman, on September 15, 1838. Douglass had fallen in love with Murray, who was helping him on his last attempt to escape slavery in Baltimore.

On September 3, 1838, Douglass shift via train to Havre de Grace, Maryland. Murray had given him some of her savings and a sailor’s uniform. He was wearing identification papers that he had received from a free black seaman. Douglass made his way to abolitionist David Ruggles’ safe home in New York in less than 24 hours.

When he arrived, Douglass sent Murray to New York to meet him where they married and took the name Johnson to hide Douglass’ identity. Anna and Frederick then settled in New Bedford, Massachusetts, where there was a thriving free black community. There they took Douglass as their married name.

Frederick and Anna Douglass had five children together: Rosetta, Lewis Henry, Frederick Jr., Charles Redmond, and Annie, who died at the age of 10. Charles and Rosetta helped their father produce his newspaper, The North Star . Anna remained a loyal supporter of Friedrich’s public work, despite the marital conflict caused by his relationships with several other women.

After Anna’s death, Douglass married Helen Pitts, a white feminist from Honeoye, New York. Pitts was the daughter of Gideon Pitts Jr., an abolitionist colleague. A graduate of Mount Holyoke College, Pitts worked on a radical feminist publication and shared many of Douglass’ moral principles.

Their marriage caused considerable controversy as Pitts was white and nearly 20 years younger than Douglass. Douglass’ children were particularly unhappy with the relationship. Douglass and Pitts remained married 11 years later until his death.


After settling in New Bedford as a free man with his wife Anna in 1838, Frederick Douglass was eventually asked to tell his story at abolitionist meetings, and he became a regular lecturer on slavery.

Impressed by Douglass’ strength and rhetorical skills, founder of The Liberator William Lloyd Garrison wrote about him in his newspaper. A few days after the story was published, Douglass gave his first speech at the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society’s annual meeting in Nantucket.

Crowds have not always been hospitable to Douglass. While attending a Midwestern lecture tour in 1843, Douglass was followed and beaten by an angry mob before being rescued by a local Quaker family.

After the publication of his first autobiography in 1845, Douglass traveled overseas to avoid the reconquest. He sailed for Liverpool on August 16, 1845, and finally came to Ireland at the start of the famine. He stayed in Ireland and Britain for two years, speaking to large crowds about the evils of slavery.

During this time, Douglass’s British supporters raised money to gain his legal liberty. In 1847 the famous writer and orator returned to the United States as a free man.

North Star

Upon his return, Douglass produced several abolitionist newspapers: The North Star , Frederick Douglass Weekly , Frederick Douglass ‘Paper , Douglass’ Monthly, and New National Era . The North Star’s motto was “Right has no gender – Truth has no color – God is the Father of us all and we are all brothers.”

Women’s rights

In addition to the abolition, Douglass became an outspoken advocate of women’s rights. In 1848 he was the only African American to attend the first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York. Elizabeth Cady Stanton called on the congregation to pass a resolution setting out the goal of women’s suffrage. Many participants rejected the idea.

Douglass stood up and spoke out eloquently, arguing that he could not accept the right to vote as a black man unless women could also claim that right. The decision was made. However, Douglass later came into conflict with women’s rights activists for supporting the Fifteenth Amendment, which banned racial discrimination while respecting gender restrictions.

Civil War and Reconstruction

At the time of the Civil War, Douglass was one of the most famous black men in the country. He used his status to influence the role of African Americans in the war and their status in the country. In 1863, Douglass spoke with President Abraham Lincoln about the treatment of black soldiers and later with President Andrew Johnson on the issue of black suffrage.

President Lincoln’s Declaration of Emancipation, which went into effect January 1, 1863, declared the freedom of all slaves in Confederate territory. Despite this victory, Douglass supported John C. Frémont in the 1864 election over Lincoln, citing his disappointment that Lincoln did not publicly advocate the right to vote for black freedmen.

Slavery was later outlawed throughout the United States with the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution.

Douglass was appointed to various political positions after the war. He was President of Freedman’s Savings Bank and Chargé d’affaires of the Dominican Republic.

After two years, he resigned from his embassy over objections to the specifics of US government policy. He was later appointed Minister and Consul General of the Republic of Haiti, an office he held between 1889 and 1891.

In 1877, Douglass visited one of its previous owners, Thomas Auld. Douglass had met with Auld’s daughter, Amanda Auld Sears, years ago. The visit had a personal meaning for Douglass, although some criticized him for the reconciliation.

Vice presidential candidate

Douglass was the first African American to be named Vice President of the United States in 1872 as Victoria Woodhull’s run mate for the Equal Rights Party ticket.

Douglass was nominated without his knowledge or consent and has never launched a campaign. Still, his nomination was the first time an African American had appeared in a presidential election.

When did Frederick Douglass die?

Frederick Douglass died of a massive heart attack or stroke on February 20, 1895, shortly after returning from a National Women’s Council meeting in Washington, DC. He was buried in Mount Hope Cemetery in Rochester, New York.

How to Ask a Guy His Intentions without Scaring Him?




Few times in a relationship are more frustrating than when one person is eager to make things formal and the other is sending confusing signals. How do you strike a balance between keeping your cool and determining whether you have a future together?

If you wonder how to ask a guy his intentions without scaring him, keep reading the article. We have a bunch of advice for you.

Ask In The First Place

Directness has no stigma, and it’s definitely the quickest method to obtain a response. When you ask a guy where he sees the relationship going, you also demonstrate that you are not a pushover. You are advocating for yourself rather than waiting for him to decide.

Therefore you should directly ask the other person without creating any awkward situation in the near future.

Don’t Set Qualifications

Qualification is an easy trap to fall into because we all want to be adored (especially by the person we’re attracted to), and we don’t want to put people under pressure. However, inquiring about a man’s intentions is not a difficult task.

You have the right to know where he sees things going, and you don’t have to say things like “I hate to ask this” or “It’s okay if you’re not ready to talk about this.” Don’t put yourself down. It’s an important and sensible question.

Don’t Wait Too Long

The more you wait, the more uncomfortable it will become. You don’t want to find out six months into a relationship that you and your partner have completely opposite ideas about where you’re going.

The sooner you ask, the less awkward the conversation will be, and the more likely you will discuss your future plans if anything changes. Create an expectation of openness from the start, and your relationship will run much more smoothly in the future.

Share Your Intentions

If you want more openness, why not start by being transparent yourself? After all, it’ll be simpler for him to be open and vulnerable if you’re open and vulnerable. This kind of openness really helps as this has been very effective on couples that are already married.

Tell him how you feel about the relationship and where you see it going. Then wait to see how he reacts. That is a direct answer in and of itself if he continues to be evasive and non-committal.

Avoid Beating about the Bush

Years of your life could be wasted attempting to gain a direct answer to an oblique inquiry. “Do you desire children?” or “When do you see yourself getting married?” are likely to elicit unsatisfactory responses.

Because while you may be interested in his answers to such inquiries, you truly want to know how he feels about your relationship. General inquiries about marriage and children may result in unspoken mind games and misunderstandings, and a lot of wasted time.

Asking About Priorities

When you ask this question of your lover, a few responses will reveal what he is seeking. If he claims his car or his career is his first priority, there’s a high likelihood he’s not looking for a long-term relationship.

The best answer is that your relationship is his top priority. This response indicates that you will marry in the near future. It’s also a positive sign if he tells you that his friends and family are his top priority.

This is an excellent subject to ask because he won’t suspect you’re looking for information about marriage and your future together.

Checking Common Friends’ Relationship Status

This is a question you should ask yourself if you know all of your boyfriend’s buddies. This is a question you should ask him if you know a handful of his buddies but have never met his coworkers or the guys on his softball team. It will give you some insight into what he is searching for.

According to studies, guys who associate with other unmarried men are less likely to settle down and marry. Men who hang out with married men are more likely to become married themselves.

If most of your boyfriend’s friends are married, he will not want to be the sole bachelor in the group for long, which suggests he will begin to consider marriage.

Your partner will not want to be the lone guy in a relationship if most of his friends are single and live a single life. The answer to this question can depict your future.

Long Term Commitment

This is a less nuanced method of determining what your lover wants. You can keep him from figuring out what you’re asking for yourself if you say it in the appropriate context. You can start the subject by telling him about a coworker who is utterly opposed to marriage and relationships. If you act as if you’re merely asking for another person’s opinion, he won’t realize you’re attempting to figure out where your relationship is heading in a subtle way.


Ask Views Regarding Age of Marriage

This question will tell you whether you should anticipate your partner to propose in five or fifteen years. It’s also a deceptive manner of deducing what he’s thinking.

If your boyfriend is 25 and believes that 30 is a nice age to marry, he may propose to you during the following few years. There’s a significant likelihood you’re in a dead-end relationship if he’s 25 and thinks 50 is the finest age or says never.

This question should ring the bells that this will not be easy with the same person. The best way is to steer clear of this person and find someone else who will have a commitment to the growth and future of the relationship.
