Do you think that men have a vital interest in keeping women dependent on them? Why?
Personally, I do and I don’t because of the situation depending. I kind of figure men want some type of security, whether it’s keeping that female companionship aspect in their lives to replace mom or just to know they have a woman there like a security blanket. This sounds pretty insecure, but that’s the only reason I can think for why I would personally want to keep my SO dependent on me. Otherwise, I really don’t believe it’s correct to try and force a relationship, but alas, I’ve found myself doing things in my own relationship to please my SO, and thereby keep her wanting more (or at least that’s the idea in my mind as to why I’m doing the things I do for her…) or satisfied with me.
Curious to hear what some of you have to say about this, and also, do you think age has any relevance to the issue?
