Love is an unequal partnership. It seems men have to carry most of the weight of a relationship on their shoulders, especially in modern times. Just compare the expectations society puts on both sexes:
- Should be strong and muscular
- Should be lean
- Should protect their woman even at the risk of their own lives
- Should have the more successful or lucrative career
- Should be the breadwinners
- Should provide emotional support and endure the girls moods
- Should approach and initiate contact with the girl in the first place
- Should be fun
- Should have a sense of humor
- Should lead an interesting life
- Should lead the relationship
- Should be lean
- Should be using makeup and dressing nicely
- Should not be a bitch??? I don't know lol
It is of course a generalisation as I know there are many wonderful women out there who put a lot of effort into their lives and the relationship, but I feel like on average it's true.
On average the guy earns the most and the girl spends the most on shopping sprees. On average it's the girl throwing tantrums and the guy having to deal with them. On average the guy spends more time in the gym working on his body. On average it's the guy who takes the initiative to approach and make something happen. On average the guy is expected to tackle difficult situations and make the right decissions.
Meanwhile the girl just kinda expects unconditional love("would you still love me if I woke up tomorrow without arms and legs?")
There's even the well known "girlfriend vs" memes and they're kinda true
It used to be that the woman took care of the household but nowadays it's sexist to let her do most of the chores.
I heard some women argue it's their role to raise the kids, but I disagree. 1. Raising your kids should be a reward and I'd much rather change a diaper 2-3 times daily than sit at work 8-10 hours. 2. It's also considered sexist to make the woman stay with the kids at home.
So girls, you often mourn that guys just want sex, but really many women bring nothing to the table besides sex. So what do you offer?
