I realized how different men are now; they have become more feminine and vain. I remember in the olden days, men were the ones who comforted the women, drilled nails on the walls when our mothers need to hang the frames and of course carry the groceries. Now it seems women are getting more independent doing most of the things at home and some men are taking it for granted.
What amazes me most is how feminine men have become these days. There are the ones who seem to have permanent mood swings and need to be comforted all the time. I’m not saying that men should lose their feminine sides but there should be a limit. Some men I know or heard of are not shy to show their emotions and cry if they need to. Of course there are good and bad things about such men and there is nothing wrong to show emotions. In fact, I like men who can talk about their feelings, as long they don’t over do it. Occasionally I still like that old fashion man who will put his arms around me and make me feel safe. These days men also enjoy confusing the women with all the mind games and testing our patience to the limit. Men were much more simpler and straight forward in the past.
When I was growing up, my mum taught me how not to rely on men and learn how to repair things around the home and at the same time she also told me that men should be gentlemen. Now I see some men even carry their partners handbags, I think that is a bit too much for a gentleman don’t you think ? And women shouldn’t make their men look like a fool either. Also there are men who let their dates pay dinners and let their wives pay most of the bills. Over the years my perception of some my beliefs might have change but my values remain the same, I think some things should remain old fashion especially when it comes to love and family values. I don’t think I want nor need a man who has a constant PMS and cries more than I do. For me the best quality of a modern man is the one who knows when to be the man and when to let out his feminine side.
