(My Love#10/1 (fb) - BTS) - Beverly Dayton was dating Nick Howard, but she eventually found him quite bossy.
(My Love#10/1) - One evening, Howard ordered a
restaurant dish she wouldn't normally order, then took her to a boxing
match that only he wanted to see. She found that she did enjoy herself
after all. The next day, her friend Holly invited her to a "Female
Freedom" rally where equal gender rights were advocated, and decided
she wanted to be treated equally on dates too. She put Howard on hold
for a couple of weeks while she dated gentler guys who valued her
opinions, asking what she wanted to eat and where to go, but she was
indecisive and the evenings withered. At another women's lib meeting,
she came to the conclusion that female freedom was more about job
quality and less about romance(!). She called Howard, who rushed over
and declared his primitive love for her. She was thrilled.

This story was later reprinted in My Love#25, where
she became a redhead on the cover only.
