  • how about as a best friend? I think one of the reasons why people get annoyed in relationships its that they get too serious, clingy and what not. I mean you are not like that with your best friend are you? I just treat my girlfriend as if she was my best friend but with obvious benefits.

    • that can be good and bad. my boyfriend treats me like his best friend, and sometimes forgets I am more than that. he will call me buddy instead of a cute name, never compliments me (instead he just jokes around and...treats me like a best friend), we never go on romantic dates (instead we just do best friend things, things youd do with your best buddy).

    • i wouldn't like that

  • Equals. I'm not into being put on a pedestal by the other person, and I sure as hell don't want to be in a relationship with somebody who thinks that I'm "theirs" in the same way that their TV is theirs.

  • I feel as though the "hot" girls were always told they were princesses by their fathers and that they want a guy unlike their father so that is out. I realize that saying only "hot" girls got called a princess is a bit mean but I have never heard "uglier" girls get called princesses in my life so until I do I will stick with that.

    I feel as though only feminists need to be treated as equals because that is what they are all about. Being "equal" right? So unless my girlfriend is a feminist then that is out as well.

    I feel as though treating a girl like she is your property is rude mean and offensive. Regardless of if you are a princess or a feminist no-one owns anyone and if you think you do then you might want to get yourself checked in at a mental institution. So that is out.

    The only option left is something else. Which is what I chose. I am not really sure what I would want to call my girlfriend but I think the safest one is simply. "beautiful" :P

    I hope this helped a little bit

    • how I would want to treat my girlfriend but I think the safest thing to do is just to call her beautiful*

      I have been up for 6 hours on 6 hours of sleep.

    • Where I live you don't need to be hot to be called a princess, there is always a guy who will call you a princess no matter how good you look...and the fathers Overall treat their daughters more like a property and feeling like a property is the worst feeling ever...

    • My point is proven :P

  • I'll do A an B. If the girl demands A 24/7, she can find a new guy.

  • I treat her with love, care, politeness, understanding, faithfulness & devotion...& honesty!

    she's my equal in all what I mentioned above...but I'm a real man which means I like dominance and I like my girl to submit for me but not by force, by love...i will treat her more then an equal, like a princess...

  • I want him to treat me like a princess, meaning: wanting to protect me, make me comfortable, take care of me, make me smile, worry about me, spoil me with silly little gestures, be there for me, want me- in almost every good sense of the phrase.

    But...

    I would do ALL this for him too and try my best at it. Maybe I can't beat someone up to protect him, but I would sure as hell get beaten up for him. Maybe I can't fix he's car, but I can fix he's computer. Maybe I can't carry him around and cuddle him in my arms all day, but I can make him chocolate chip cookies. =)

    You can't simplify the amount of caring partners give. When you want someone, you want to treat her like a princess because it makes you happy. And not matter how much you try, you will never do more then she does. Because love IS equality. If she wants you too, she will also treat you like a princess. xD

    And eventually you will realize that option A and B really are the same thing when you have someone who cares about you next to you.

  • Well, I like being treated like I am the best in his life. Though, a princess? It depends...I don't really care to get spoiled..and if you do want to spoil me, then not all the time. Because, eventually, I will get use to it..and no even realize I'm being spoiled. I just want my man to treat me like his best friend. Where we tell each other everything. Even if it would kill me to hear it. Because, I know I can always help him with it. I also want my man to treat me like I'm the only one he desires. I want to be the only one he desires. If he loves me, then he should I think. I also like it if he shows me that he is thinking about me in some way...you know a simple "I miss you" text..those little things mean so much to me.

  • I chose equal because I don't want someone putting me down to make themselves feel better or secretly thinking they are better than me. I used to be treated like a princess but it was thrown in my face because they didn't think I appreciated it when I did. I would say thank you and kiss them. They expected too much from me. Expectations and insecurity is a receipe for disaster.

  • Now, generally I'm a B girl. But it's nice from time to time to be treated like a princess by the guy you're with. However, along with my equality statement, I think it's good to also treat your man like he's the best thing since sliced bread. I can only think that if you treat them like that on occasion and appreciate the things they do that everone will have a far happier relationship.

  • Definitely his equal.

    There's nothing wrong with being treated "like a princess," but I wouldn't want him to spoil me or think that I'm "above" him or anything.

    Guys who treat girls like property are complete turn-offs to me. Possessive, controlling, jealous... just stay away.

    We treat each other like we love and care about each other, like we're best friends.

  • Close to equal, but he has to realize I'm a girl and I can't do or tolerate some things. Like I can't do heavy work and he shouldn't treat and act like I'm oe of his guy friends. But he should respect me, understand that genders have differences and similarities that neither one is better than the other and that we have to axcept each other the way we are.

  • I picked D because I'd pick something between A and B. I think it's important for two people to feel equal in a relationship, because when there isn't a balance all kinds of problems break out. My ex acted more like my father than my boyfriend and I couldn't stand it. I felt like I always had to do things his way. It feels so much better when your partner actually treats you with respect and make decisions together, compromising if need be.

    But I also want to be treated like a princess a little bit. It's not because I'd want to feel more important than him or anything like that. But I do want to feel appreciated, so it's wonderful when your boyfriend treats you like you're the most special girl in the world, because you should be to him. Just as he should be the most special guy to you. And all of this goes both ways for me. I like to treat my boyfriend like a prince sometimes too :)

  • My guy treats me as an equal & as a princess. He loves spoiling me & surprising me with things when he can/when he has the money. I like to do the same to him but he hates surprises. But he loves it when I do something special for him. I love making him food, he loves my cooking. And sometimes he returns the favor as well. He also knows how to take care of me when I'm sick & he's very protective over me. He's what I've always dreamed of =) The only thing I can't do is protect him. But when someone crosses the line, I'll bitch them out & tell it like it is. If they don't like it, they can f**k off & leave me & him alone. I'm very territorial over him I guess you could say lol.

    • it does exist. but it's usually only players who'll do that for a certain time

  • I guess it's safe to say I HATE being treated like a princess. I'm anything but a princess haha.

    I like being treated like the person I am. If we're dating, then he knows who I am and my quirks. He knows how I like to be handled, according to every situation. Besides how you treat someone varies according to the situation, according to how long you've been dating, and how close you are. It's not a constant.

  • I would like to be treated like a princess because it shows that I'm actually worth something to the guy! If I want to be treated as his property... that depends because yes, I want the guy to fight for me and be all like "She's mine!" but I don't want the guy to be all like "You are my slave", you get what I'm saying? So there's a good to be treated as their property and a bad. So yeah, princess all the way!

    • You do realize when a guy is "protective" he usually is the jealous type in general and wouldn't let you talk to other guys. A guy who thinks of you as his property would definitely not risk the chance of his property being stolen, so, I don't know where you got that notion from.
