This is a comment by Jon D on the post “It’s True That Men Have to Fall Harder For Women Than They Fall For Us“.
To certain extent this rings true when you consider that men overwhelmingly bear the brunt of having to “be romantic” for their women. You never hear a man complain that his wife never takes him anywhere or doesn’t bring him home special gifts or leave little love notes hidden for him to discover. It’s because we’re conditioned not to expect that stuff, whereas women are conditioned to expect it and when a man fails to deliver, it is further evidence that the man does not care for her much because he is not willing to make an effort.
I say it’s time for women to make more of an effort, especially in marriage, to keep romance alive. The next time a woman complains her boyfriend or husband is “boring” they need to ask themselves what fabulous fun ideas they have come up with in the last year.
