For some women, there is nothing they wouldn’t do for their man. Although love should be unconditional, many women feel the need to prove their love to a man, even if it means compromising their beliefs, safety or even their freedom to show them what a “down A$$ chick” they are. However, a man who truly loves you will never ask you to do anything you’re uncomfortable doing in order to prove your love to him. Your love and devotion should simply be enough, and couples who share true love will never have to prove anything to each other. However, if your man begins a sentence with, “If you loved me, you’d…,” run because most likely, nothing good can come of it. Showing your love shouldn’t be shameful, painful, humiliating or illegal, and while you may think you’re assuaging his insecurities, you’re actually just allowing him to manipulate you. Think there is no limit to showing him how far you’ll go to prove your love? Think again. Here are 10 things no woman should do for a man, simply because he asks her to.
Recently I had a ‘girl you know you’re too old for that’ moment. As I hung up the phone from a heated argument with a ‘friend’, I decided I wasn’t done talking (despite the fact that I was the one who ended the conversation and hung up the phone).
I called him back to finish off my thoughts. ‘Ooh this is good’, I thought as I recited in my head the cutting words I would say once he picked up the phone. As the phone rang a couple of times, it was clear that he wasn’t trying to answer my calls; and he didn’t. So I called back again only to receive his voicemail. As I started to call back for the third time, I stopped myself and hung up the phone. I really didn’t even want to talk that bad. However, my anger increased when he refused to answer my calls. In the past, I would call back until I got tired (pathetic I know. I just hate to be ignored).
I laughed at my sudden, silly, girlish behavior. I knew I was too old to act this way; but even us grown girls have our moments right?
This behavior, among other things, needs the ‘girl you’re too old for that’ stamp, to remind us to leave the girly, childish behavior to the girls. As women, there are some things we should outgrow before we call ourselves ‘grown’.
So what are some of the behaviors that you know you’re too old for? Are you guilty of any of these?
