Male Entitlement In Dating and In Marriage – Single Christian Men Who Feel Entitled – Part 1
Stay tuned for a Part 2 to this post [August 2016: I did intend on doing a Part 2, but now, I’m not sure if I’ll get around to it or not. I might. I don’t know]. This is Part 1, and it’s pretty long.
I have been meaning to do a post about this topic for a long time.
First, here are a couple of pages about a newly released dating advice book, aimed at single women and written by a couple of men who are in their early 30s.
These authors think male entitlement is a given, and women should go along with it if they want a husband:
(Link): ‘You should prepare his meals and massage his feet’: New dating guide written by men offers women brutally honest advice on how to snag a husband
“Single Man, Married Man” was penned by seven New York-based men who are single, engaged, married and divorced
It argues ‘all men’ who say they don’t want to get married are ‘lying’
According to one author, men lie to ‘get their women to listen’ and insists telling the truth is ‘risky’
Another suggests men are more likely to feel guilty about changing their barber than cheating on their partner
A new book written by a panel of men seeks to advise women on the ‘do’s and don’ts’ of dating from a brutally honest male perspective.
Single Man, Married Man was compiled by childhood friends Jean Alerte, a 33-year-old married businessman who owns a Brooklyn yogurt shop, and Frank Gateau, a 32-year-old ‘serial dater’ who works in PR.
…Mr Alerte and Mr Gateau [who wrote the book] – who claim that when men say they don’t want to get married, they’re ‘lying’ – spent three years surveying more than 300 male subjects online and in person to arrive at their conclusions.
One contributor described as single mentions the song ‘Cater 2 U’ by Destiny’s Child as being an anthem that ‘should be on every woman’s playlist and kept on repeat.’
He advises: ‘Prepare his meals, draw him a bath and massage his feet every now and then.’
— end excerpts —
No, let me tell you how it really is.
If a man wants to be with me, he will massage MY feet every now and then, prepare meals FOR ME, and draw ME a bath.
I am not going to “cater” to his behind. I’ve been down that road before, and it is unrewarding and so not worth it (more on that below).
