You don’t have to send him a bottle in return to be on his level. He’s not trying to make you feel like you can’t afford your own beverage. Let him do what he believes a man should and appreciate him for his efforts.
It seems as though for the younger generation of men... After being married for 22 years and then getting a divorce...
No woman should try to to a man that she’s capable of paying for her own meal, opening her own doors or pumping her own gas. When a man wants to do something nice for you, let him!
The worst thing you can do is prevent a man from doing the aforementioned, or act offended if he does.
Being a woman shouldn’t be associated with being weak.
I like to explain femininity simply as an appreciation for beauty.
It’s not a bad or negative trait to be independent as a woman and the mere suggestion is absurd.
What has happened in our society is a subtle war between men and the alpha female.
Being feminine could mean tapping into a quiet strength. Being so confident that you let your man take the lead, trusting in his ability to do so.
Don’t try to compete with men or falsely accept that you have to be the same as a man to prove you’re as smart or independent. Just because you can do for yourself doesn’t mean you should deny a man from doing it for you.
