I’ve always had a thing against this idea that men should jump through hoops for women. I think it’s a ridiculous expectation that many women take advantage of.
But, what I realized is that’s the thing that I have the issue with – the women who take advantage of the fact that a man will do anything to be with her. Not the idea itself.
The fact is, there are a lot of women out there who think that a man should do whatever it takes to be with them, but don’t think for a second about what they are doing to be with him. I partially blame that whole princess thing.
And, I also blame the fact that we’ve all grown up on the idea that a man will ask a woman out and she will say no. But then, instead of giving up, the man just tries harder and eventually she says yes. You know, because he proves he’s “worthy” and interested.
Call me crazy, but I don’t get behind this idea at all. You know how they say a man will ask you out if he’s interested, well, if a woman is interested she will say yes.
For me, I do not think that a man should worship the ground I walk on, but rather, we should worship each other. If a man is jumping through hoops (aka putting in the effort) to be with me, so am I (to be with him).
