My friend Panama Jackson recently wrote about a common problem that men experience with women: entitlement issues. Apparently women can get a little carried away with expecting men to make it their life’s mission to make/keep us happy.
Ok, so I would love to argue that women don’t have entitlement issues but there is some truth to it! This is not to say that men don’t have their own, though. Nothing is more annoying then dealing with a guy who wants more than he is willing to give, but I digress.
I just believe that women want to (and are expected) to give, sacrifice, and nurture their men so much. When we don’t feel our partner actively showing appreciation, expressing concern about when we are sad/upset, then it becomes a problem. A big one.
So perhaps both men and women should get a reality check in expectations!
Panama said that women who think “a man’s happiness hinges upon his ability to keep his woman happy” is where that whole women have entitlement issue plays out. What do you think?
Do you think women expect men to make them happy? Is it unrealistic to expect the person you are in a relationship with to put your happiness as a priority?
