Some Men want a 21st-century woman with 20th-century values.

Most men do not settle for mediocre women, which is a good thing. No one should ever settle!
Unfortunately, most women definitely will settle. I believe that it’s because we have been convinced that there is a shortage of men, all men are liars and all men are cheaters. I guess some of us just take what we can get. Go figure. 🤷🏾‍

It’s ok to not settle when someone doesn’t have to settle to be with you….Let that sink in.

Does anyone else feel that men want a lot from women in relationships?? Sometimes more than they can give?

My question is, why do some men think it’s ok to want a 21st-century woman with 20th-century values when they want to remain as 21st-century men?

When my grandparents were married, my grandmother was a stay at home wife. She cooked, cleaned, and cared for her children while my grandfather worked. This was the living situation for most couples at that time.

Let’s be clear…the MEN COVERED ALL EXPENSES!!!! My grandmother told me that she got a weekly allowance from my grandfather because she didn’t have her own money. This caused women to be more submissive. Men ensured that their family had a roof over their head and food on the table. It was extremely rare for a man to sit at home all day and depend on a woman. Men were independent and didn’t expect anything from women or depend on them to keep the family afloat financially.

Fast forward to 2017.

More women are the head of the household and have most of, if not all of these qualities below
1.A good paying job
2.A car
3.A house
4.They are great mothers
6.Great cook
9.Ok with splitting the expenses 50/50
10.Dresses well
11.Keeps hair, nails, and feet done at all times
12.Good credit

These are qualities that society has said women need to have to be “wife-material”.

These are all great qualities, and I would want all of this things as well if I was a man looking for a wife. But….as a man, can you match this qualification???

If the answer is no, please go back and re-evaluate your standards.

Some men want a woman to be submissive and have said “Back in the day women treated men like men” Ummm question..are you the man that the men were “back in the day”!!

It’s unfair to expect a woman to cook, clean, take care of children and entertain you, after working all day. On top of that, also expecting her to pay bills, and carry the family on her back solely or with little help! You can’t have it both ways!

“Back in the day” men courted women, they opened doors, they paid for dinner (with no expectation of the woman tipping), they picked her up in THEIR car and walked her to the door. Men married women, had children and took care of their families. It was very rare for a man to be with a woman for years, have children with her and not marry her. That was the standard, and the men were considered less of a man if he couldn’t do these things. Nowadays, some men expect women to split everything 50/50, take care of them emotionally, financially, and sexually all while having no intention of marrying the woman. We call it “playing house”. These men then say we don’t treat them like a man. Interesting right?!! Women are expected to play both women…. the old school submissive women, and the new school independent women. Not to say it’s anything wrong with being both, but there’s no way I should be forced to be independent and deal with the ups and downs of a relationship. If I have to be independent I would rather be single.


I’m not man bashing! I love men…just shedding some light on a few things we talk about as women.
I’m not judging anyone in this situation either because I was in this situation for a while myself.
How do you feel about this….Comment Below!

  1. This is a great post! I always feel like the expectations for women keep growing, while (some) men are not stepping it up at home. If women are taking a leading role at home and financially they shouldn’t be expected to let the man make all the decisions like they did when men were solely supporting their families. Although I would not ever want it to go back to wives being submissive, the shift in roles has made things more complicated.

    1. Thank you so much! I feel the same way as you, back then women with good husbands that weren’t controlling could submit and cater to their men, but now we are working and being a mom and it makes it very hard to be catering to a man when we can’t even cater to ourselves. There’s just not enough hours in the day! 😩

  2. Preach! I’m perfectly ok to be a stay at home lady who cooks, cleans and does all the housework and you can support me financially, etc. but if that isn’t happening then ya better step up to the plate and do 1/2 of the daily chores too!! Otherwise, yep…staying single is fine with me! Not willing to settle…no need to these days!

  3. Such a good way of presenting that argument… enjoyed reading it and agree!

    If I’m to be a stepford wife AND equal provider why would some schmuck expect to stay a gamer dude and not pull his own weight financially or on the home front? Never happened to me, I have a good one myself- but boy have I seen that happen a ton to friends of mine.

  4. I dig this one. I think there’s nothing wrong with tradition from prior generations. But more importantly, I believe a woman as much as a man should be able to do what they feel in regards to relationships, ownerships, jobs and children, and by no means should any action taken – especially from a women – being considered as un-natural or strange. Fact is, women are by no means less or more important than men, in my eyes at least. Maybe it’s just me, but that’s how I’ve always seen things, so the idea of a stay at home mother who doesn’t (isn’t allowed to go to work) just seems so uncommon and barbaric to me.

    For me at least, if a woman wants go to work, okay. If she wants to be a stay at-home mother, okay. If she wants to dress sharply everyday with make-up, okay. And if she doesn’t, well hey, even better.
    Relationships with power struggles just seem so alien to me.

  5. “These are qualities that society has said women need to have to be “wife-material”.”.
    Society said. I don’t know of any Men that put all of those requirements on any female. I am aware that “society” says a lot of things. For instance, “society” says I, as a Man, should find every Woman attractive just the way she is even if she has has unhealthy eating patterns and won’t exercise. Men, because of what “society” said, can’t seem to have a preference into what he finds sexually attractive, less he be labeled a pervert or a creep.
    My point is, since “Society” caused you to feel that Men are wanting more than they are giving, perhaps you should look at “Society” to change it back to what worked for that generation before us. See, “Society” caused this issue, not Men. Actually, your precious Feminism caused it, so now we are all dealing with the effects or it. See, Men were perfectly content with performing what’s in our nature, meaning being a Provider and Protector, for a Woman who is worth it. But, these Women today are simply not worth it.
    See, the Author tried to present it as if Men want it both ways. Women were the ones crying about the fact that Men were the only ones going out to take care of the family and that Women’s only role was to stay at home. They felt oppressed. They wanted to do everything Men did. So, now that they have the same fate as a working Man, they want to complain. Women can’t seem to be happy. They want it both ways. The problem is that it is in a Man to Provide and Protect. THAT is not a Woman’s Nature. So, being that Men are realizing that there is a competition a play in regards to a Power Struggle between the Natural Man (Men who would normally provide and protect) and the Unnatural Woman (a Woman being forced to Provide and Protect), progress is being hindered in regards to healthy relationships. The Author of this article should stop blaming Men and realize that the Natural Order of things has changed because “Society said”. Maybe no Man wants to be a Man for then because these Women have lost the one thing Men cherish most: femininity.

    1. Hi Quentin! I’m Angelina and I’m the author of this article 😏….sorry for the late response but I’m back! I wouldn’t label my self as a feminist…I believe in rights for everyone, not only women. I am not blaming men for anything at all. Based on my experiences men want both! They want a working woman that’s barefoot in the kitchen with a baby on her hip. Women have changed but so have men. How many men do you know that want housewives? Men I know want a working woman, but they also want her to cook and clean as well. Honestly, it’s hard working, caring for children, keeping a home clean and meals cooked with absolutely no help…and eating healthy and working out( that seems to be important to you and other men). So where does the balance come in? Why can’t we both work, cook, clean and take care of the children together? I can pay for some dates, he can pay for some days and we can live a happy equal life. 🤗


  6. These females are out of their minds. They have the nerve to complain that Men don’t want to meet them halfway. Why should Men? Let these INDEPENDENT females be just that. Like they always like to let it be known: ” THEY DON’T NEED NO DAMN MAN!!!!”
    I see why every Man I know avoids females like the plague now. These females want Simps. They want a duck for a Man. They want a Man to bust his hide at work, come home and do house work too. I must have missed out on the Meninist Movement where Men were demanding to stay at home, cook and clean, and raise kids. Miss me with this garbage of an article.

    1. Are you mad Nigel? You seem pretty upset. Let’s put this in perspective though…#1 No one man or woman is the same so let’s not categorize, we all have a bad habit of doing that. #2 This garbage of an article is coming from MY views! I am a woman who works 40 hours a week sometimes more, I am raising two small children, who both are involved in activities, and I am going to school full time. So yes I need the man in my life to be a man. Women can be independent but who doesn’t want a companion that wants to help? Who wants to be forced to be independent all the time? WAIT! Let me guess I still have to have sex with him right? But I can’t expect to be treated nothing less than the woman I am? Do you have daughters? How do you want a man to treat them? And sorry I’m so late! But I’m back 😏 let’s argue 🤷🏾‍♀️
