Girl goes on a date with a guy. On the way home he gets a flat tire. He called AAA and they said they'll get there asap. The girl said I can just fix it instead of us waiting. He said, "No we should just wait." She waited & waited, no AAA. So she got out and took care of it. The rest of the ride home, he was quiet, he said he'd give her a call but never spoke to her again. Her male friends told her, "Why would u do that? You totally emasculated him. Shoulda just let him be a man." *This was from an article I read if it sounds familiar. Anyways, would u call her back? Why or why not? Thoughts?
I seriously doubt I would EVER find myself in that kind of scenario, but will be the first to admit I could be upped by a woman taking command of a stereotypical male role. Any guy that would deny that is lying.
With that said, the question is, would I date her again or call her back? The answer would be yes for two reasons. The first reason I would call her back is because I respect her for who she is. The second reason I would call her back is I am not a pussy with a fragile ego.
This is hard to answer because it's about something I am able to do myself. But presuming the issue was over anything else that I would have been kind of expected to be able to do, but wasn't, while she was able and actually did it... I'm ashamed to admit but I would probably not call her back. In that particular case she would have emasculated me. Apart from me feeling uncomfortable over it - I could just assume that something would change in her own mindset as well - she would probably think less of me.
Well that wouldn't happen with me because I actually know how to change a flat tire lol. But a woman knowing how to change a tire is a good thing in my opinion it's something I'd teach my girl, these are things you gotta know in life.
if he rejected her for being competent in his presence, he should not be dating. you should want your partner to be competent so that when there is a crisis there's always someone to pick up the slack. not to mention adults should date adults. not over grown children.
& her friends should be fired. no friend tells a friend to make themselves useless to make someone else feel good. thats incredibly disrespectful.
also she can change a tire but can't make a phone call... why was she expected to wait for his call.
I understand this plight. Ya gotta stop dating the insecure ones. I have lived on my own and learned to do a lot of things. Currently I take care of a huge victorian house on my own and I have become pretty handy. I have to constantly remind myself, let a boy handle it if he wants or his ego will suffer. I have a natural desire to just take control and handle things because I have had to learn how to do it all on my own and I believe if you want something done right do it yourself, but I also believe in retaining my friendships with men lol
