I have my own degree but men had to historically marry down. She can't seem to fathom marrying down. However, she took the driver seat and expects me to meet her bar which she has placed very high. It is like she is saying "I am independant but want to be taken care of". I can't tell her to wear makeup but she wants me to wear a suit. She advocates for more women and stem careers and expects me to listen to her speak about this, when women are RADICALLY outpacing men in college, in general. She talks about the pay gap but then expects me to pay for dinner and not split the bill.
Am I just being bitter about breaking up with my girlfriend? I could not deal with it anymore.
