5. Move, I’ll Do It.
Men like to feel needed and useful. If you constantly diminish this inherent trait in him, he might begin to wonder why he’s even in the relationship. Give your significant other a chance to help you. Asking for help doesn’t make you a traitor to the feminist movement, it simply means that you don’t have to do everything yourself, and if he’s a good person, he’ll want to make sure you’re taken care of – so let him! If you do everything yourself, or tell him he’s doing something wrong, or allow your dad (or your ex) to change your tire or wash your car, then you’re sending him a message that you have no use for him in your life. If he needs your help, or help from someone else, let him be the one to say it. If you want him to be a man, let him be one!
