Today I got told off for something very simple, peeling an apple for my boyfriend. My mum thought that I was doing it because he told me to (one of the inconveniences of speaking two languages at the house lol). The truth is that he is a risk for his own health (if you've seen him doing it you'd understand). I can understand that my mum was concerned, but it all ended up as a misunderstanding.
A few years ago I was super feminist, girl power etc. But now that I'm in a serious relationship my point of view has changed. Before, I think, we all went thru the "sex and the city complex", we all had to be maneaters and they should be begging on their knees for our love. Don't we wanna be equal? Well, let's start giving a good example! For me a relationship should be balanced: 50% - 50% = a team. If you cannot do something the other one will be there to help, one can cook and the other can tidy up the kitchen. I don't know If you'll agree with me but that's what I think. Whether they like it or not, boys have their little hearts too, they want to be truly loved and the same way we wanna be treated like the most important thing in the world, so do they!
Lately we haven't been being fair with guys in some matters ( cuz in other areas, sadly we're still far way behind ). A couple of weeks ago I was watching a gossips/talk show program and there was a girl saying how her ex boyfriend had cheated on her. Apparently in the story she was telling, she found out that he was having sex with someone else and she went crazy and started punching, slapping and hitting him with her purse. The crowd went crazy: well done girl!! And I was shocked!! What would have happened if it was the other way around? If the guy had done exactly the same thing he'd be in jail by now.
As I said, I think we should consider each other as equals, 50% - 50%. Something balanced will make us happy.
