Dating: 8 Things Women Don't Do Anymore
After my Hub post listing the things that men don’t do anymore, I was challenged more than a few times to address the things that women don’t do anymore. Well honestly, compiling this list was more difficult than I thought it would be. Maybe I’m not being fair in my assessments, but trying to mirror the prior list was really impossible to do. I hesitated to title this post, “Things Women Don’t Do Anymore” because women still do the things they’ve always done. The problem is, along with the things women still do, there are a lot of things that they now do that they would’ve never done before.
It honestly took some time for me to come up with anything substantial. I can hear the boos and hisses coming from the male readers, so you guys feel free to add to this list if you think I missed something.
The real title of this Hub is, "8 Things Women Now Do That They Didn't Use To"
1. Women now ask men out on dates (and make other first moves)
Call me old fashioned; I don’t like the idea of women asking men out on dates. What someone else does is none of my business but the climate that it creates is a culture of men who depend on women to take charge.
2. Women now act less than lady-like
You don’t have to look too hard to find examples of this one. There are women brawling like savages with video footage as proof (if you need it). Females strutting around in public half dressed, with all of their business showing, cursing and doing whatever they can to bring attention to themselves. This is certainly less than lady-like behavior.
3. Women now refuse to submit to men
One major example of this is the doing away with the phrase “love, honor and obey” in marriage vows by women when planning their weddings. In fact, when wedding guests hear the word ‘obey’ at a wedding ceremony, there is a certain air of discomfort and even the raise of an eyebrow or two. If you’re marrying a man worth submitting to (which you should be doing in the first place) then you shouldn’t have a problem obeying.
4. Women now buy or pay for sex
Gigolos are nothing new but I’m not even talking about that. Today’s woman of means has no problem wooing a man with gifts and cash to get sex (and sometimes love) and this is for some of the same motivations that men have—arm candy.
5. Women now openly agree to man-sharing
Back in the day there were occasions of man-sharing but usually the women involved didn’t know about it or they pretended not to know. Now women openly identify their man’s “side piece” and the other woman wears the title proudly.
6. Women now are more open to alternative lifestyles (female partnership)
I’m not talking about being born gay or lesbian. There are heterosexual women who, out of their frustrations of not finding men they deem available in all the ways that matter, try out female companionship. #Truestory
7. Women now question everything a man says
This may, or may not, be a good thing. Men who are trying to run the ‘okey-doke’ on women have a hard time pulling it off now. Women are not so quick to believe everything a man says. There is no lying about one’s profession or marital status because women will log onto Google and solve the mystery with a few points and clicks. If a man wants to run game now, it takes some elaborate planning because women now question everything.
8. Women now think nothing of having extra-marital affairs
There was a time when, if infidelity broke up a marriage, it was not only assumed to be the man having the affair it was the man having the affair. Now, a woman creeping on her husband is just as likely as it is for him.
Even though it was more difficult for me to compile this list as it was the other one, I won’t blame it on the fact that I am slow to criticize women. What both of these lists boil down to are a lack of respect for the opposite sex and a lack of respect for self. At the end of the day, things are not supposed to stay the same as time moves on, but certainly our values should.
