It depends on your victim.
While it's true, it makes sense for men to prove themselves more (because of the hunter instinct), from my observations, it doesn't matter if you're a woman or not--it depends on your victim's psyche. Here are some examples.
You'd have to prove yourself if:
-Your victim has gone through lots of trauma, especially regarding relationships and trust.
-If they've experienced abuse.
-Have many romantic and/or sexual prospects.
-Analytical/skeptical/in their heads often
-always being chased
You DON'T have to prove yourself if your victim is:
-bored with life
-don't have much romantic and/or sexual experience
