Get out of my head!
It is so odd you post this because the other day my friend and I were discussing this exact situation. As you know I have been thru relationship hell
as of late and my friend is going through the same exact thing as I am and the other day we had girl time and discussed the exact things you just
We are both very old fashioned, traditional and simple. I don't for the life of me get what is wrong with the majority of men and women today. I too
think it was better back in the 50s and I on more than one occasion have said if I lived then I'd be married with kids by now because men appreciated
a women who was decent to them and meant what they said and was willing to take care of the house. I won't like I like to cook, clean and take care
of others. I have always been that way even as a kid. I would have no problem being a house wifey
because to me that is a wonderful job, taking
care of your family. I know there are those who think that housewives sit at home all day and watch soaps, well that is not the case.
I talk to a lot of older guys on a daily basis at work and they tell me about the 50s and how it was then and they too think relationships were
different then. People meant it when they took vows. Now it's "oh lets get married after we have known each other 6wks on a reality show" type
crap. No WONDER the divorce rate is high. Look at how society shows relationships on tv and in movies. I can't stand movies where they have one
person cheat and then they have a temp breakup then get back together. Um sorry but cheating is never ok or acceptable and in today's society it
seems like it is! Well for me it sure as hell is not. There are websites to help you cheat without getting caught. I mean wth is that?! Cheating is
betraying another's trust in the worst way. I can forgive and forget many things but not cheating. When you have been cheated on many times it gives
you very different views on it.
I have never cheated and I am one of the most the most loyal people I know, well my friends all say that, yet I have been put thru thr ringer with
guys. Oh and you know what their problem always was??? They were bitter and jaded because some woman before me cheated and used them and them spit
them out. Women like that I want to hit.
So when they do meet someone like me who is not the stereotype so many guys complain about they freak out.
WHY?!?!?! I guess I am a rare breed of woman stuck in a world of people who are relationship challenged cause I know I am not the one with the
relationship issues. I have my insecurities but I am more that willing to be open about it with someone I am with. People make relationships so hard
and it really isn't that hard. Communication really is the key. IMO people are either wimps or let pride get in the way so they won't talk to their
spouse about things that bother them when you should be able to tell your spouse anything. Ryan was my best friend as well as my bf and I could tell
him anything, even though half the time I sounded like a goof trying to get it out but I liked how we could tell each other things....guess he should
have said more
Anyway....To me if people communicated more and took the time to listen to their partner there would be less divorce, break ups and
So yeah I would have been just fine with being a housewife in the 50s. It would not have really bothered me since I like doing all the things you
mentioned lol. Although I would still have to work. I like to be independent in that way so working would be a must and it all can be done!
