I realize this question already has a BA but I liked the question & am answering it the way I see it. I also answer questions not for a BA but to try & help resolve something if & when I can though ofcourse BA is well appreciated ;)
I don't go by Adam and Eve's evolution but I go by the facts as we know them i.e. that it may have begun in Africa (it's evolution cause it changes and adapts which explains the various colors/races/ethnicity etc) then from the Hylobatidae (Gibbons) & Ponginae (Orangutans) to the Homo Erectus and Neanderthals & finally to the Homo Sapiens Sapiens which is us 'humans'
By and large the male has been the dominant species as far as physical power goes while the female has been the 'submissive' species. Submissive (not less powerful - when required) cause the female has historically has had the power to bear with situations (like bearing the pain of pregnancy, PMS etc). The female in even the earlier species has cared for the young, looked after well being of the elders etc. In short the female has always been endowed with emotion, compassion etc. Everything that has it's positives has negatives 2 - nature's law.
A woman thus is generally happier if allowed her freedom like anyone else. Owing to her passion, compassion and other such qualities given to her by nature her world centers around 'pleasing' (by cooking, washing etc etc) those near and around her - such as u
The man that is seen as crude & dominating has always been the 'provider' and 'thinker'. 'Chivalry' etc too was created by man made society ;) to protect & ensure women's rights & that women are treated with the grace and gentleness they deserve to be.
Man is also generally more of the persona nongrata than women are but there are certainly women who are 2 :D and that is because of the way nature has made both of them.
When a woman shows her love by 'catering' to her man (which is natural instinct), she expects him to be happy with it while some men are insatiable with anything (maybe they are confused with themselves). I personally love pampering the woman I love & my daughter. May it be cooking for them or massaging them when they are tired, running their errands. But again not everything done makes them happy. The woman I love, loved me cause I am as she describes me 'strikingly handsome, aggressive, strong clarivoyance, deep voice, high position ...'. Though she'd love me & say she's lucky to have me there would be times she would simply get angry when I massage her legs in the night when she's tired etc. That's confusion / conflict within her that shows up as irritation when one is unable to vocalize it. That hasn't changed me one bit. I'd still do what I do for them no matter how much I'm pushed away cause I understand dey are human & prone to errors.
In your case, this man or any other I'd say don't change yourself. Just change your perception. Appreciation can be felt even in their irritation :) - just learn 2 read d other person
Luck part exists 2 :D
