I don’t know what sustains an everlasting happy relationship. But I do know it hurts bad when someone has forgotten the simple gestures of caring. Are all men like this? If yes, I think it’s quite natural that, in time, women are not going to need a permanent male partner in their lives. With the growing opportunities for women nowadays, we will get to a point where we don’t need to survive on just marriage. Casual partnership might just be sufficient because we will keep searching for what we want. Gone were the days where we needed to depend on men for shelter, security, and food.
Yes, I was angry. That’s why I left to cool down. How difficult it is to console me after that? Of course, I am hurt. Being quiet about it is only going to make it worse because it just shows that you don’t even care to ask. Is it because he’s afraid of me? Am I that scary to be approached? If he was sorry about it, he should initiate. Why does it always have to be me? Why does it always have to be me making the decision. I feel like I’m babysitting sometimes. It’s as though I need to teach him how to do stuff.
Maybe that’s why young women have affairs with older men. Because they know how to take care of a women’s heart. They understand that women get weary… and just a little tenderness would do. It doesn’t have to be expensive. It doesn’t have to be diamonds. Just a little tenderness, which I believe, men nowadays have taken for granted what a woman’s heart can take.
