This is a comment by Archy on the post “Can You Ever Really Make a Woman Feel Special?“
“So women are being raised to be entitled little princesses? That’s a great way to cause a huge amount of problems for them, and also the people that want to date them. How special do they have to be? I hope they realize the princess fairy tales usually involve her being extremely beautiful and rare as hell, and princesses are what, 0.0001% of the population or less? They’re fantasy.
“The fact he comes home to you every night and wants you should be special enough, if it isn’t then make it special together. Special to me is those men and women who sit by their partners side at the hospital freaking out hoping they’re okay, the ones that hurt because their partner is sad or injured, the ones that just wanna make life feel good for them, who work hard to try have a stable home, family, etc. Being the princess at a ball in a pretty dress isn’t special, if you want to feel special go dancing in a nice outfit with your partner. Our culture doesn’t really do the whole introduction to society stuff much anymore, or the ball/dance, hopefully women realize this and have adjusted their specialness meter.“
