Yeah. In a relationship, we should be able to defend each other and trust in one another. To defend someone comes with more than defense; it comes with a trust they were trying to do the right thing, a trust that they are being honest and genuine, and a trust that they did that for a good reason; all of these are hallmarks of a partner that is more than worth the trouble. To defend someone is an action that speaks volumes of anybody.0
Depends on what you want. Broadly there are two types of women, shield maidens and princesses.
Shield maiden's are great because they meet challenges head on with you, but they're rare and hard to win over. Princesses on the other hand want to be cared for and protected, which is great if you are up for it, but they're usually unhelpful or even a hinderance in difficult times.0
That's a pretty cool statement. I think men have a sense of dignity too that they want defended.4
What Girls & Guys Said
Absolutely and this is called loyalty3
That sounds like the sort of thing an idealist in a fictional novel would say, as it sounds "empowering".
In real life, if your woman has to defend you, then she's with the wrong guy. If you need to defend her, then you've got a Karen.0
Obviously protecting your love one's is a two person job if you dating a guy or girl who logically doesn't try sticking up for you or at least try to be comforting than I don't think it's a good relationship.0
I would defend the man I love with everything I have… and if it meant putting myself in the line of fire, I would do that too… I just know he would never ever let me get hurt before him… and I feel likewise so it’s a battle of protection lmfao32
That "stand by your man" woman.
That's me and more.0
It is 100 percent true if "protect" means overall not just physically, I will not be fighting off muggers or bears or whatever, but I try to help him in many other ways.18
I agree. If a woman won't stand up for you get rid of her immediately0
Yep it should be expected for woman to defend her man against women just like it should be expected for a guy to defend his woman against men.0
Seems reasonable although I've not heard that before.0
Defending your partner is important no matter what gender you are. But women do often look for a man who can protect them.10
it's a lot easier to find a needle in the haystack10
I don't need a woman to defend me! But I do think she should give him support.0
For sure. Why defend a woman, who betrays or cheats on him?0
I've defended her so many times I've lost count. People that know me and her know I'm very overprotective of her.0
Yes. I have even before we got married.5
Absolutely! That phrase is spot on3
Well a hopeful one!0
I believe women are supposed to protect your emotions and your time by helping you with chores and child management and men are supposed to protect your body and your possessions by bringing food to the table and doing repairs around the home and giving the family rides to daily errands and social gathers. I’m not saying women cannot earn money or men cannot do chores but women do more chores and men earn more money.
I'm just happy you said women should care about a man's emotions.
