Men Don't Get It
Why don't some men have a clue when it comes to paying their way? If a woman even hints about it, they're ready to start an argument and bring up old things in the past that have nothing to do with the topic at hand. They are stuck in a certain mentality, that as long as they are buying some food or buying you something here or there they are "taking care of you."
I'm not talking about all men. Some men know what to do; they'll work and help you with household chores without even needing to be asked. My son is one of these "men who gets it"— he splits the rent where's he's staying now, and if he was still living with me, he'd be paying rent too! It's just stressful when men act like this, and then get mad when you won't satisfy their every need.
