Men can be very supportive and caring for the women they truly love. They would pull out all the stops for their woman’s happiness, and make sacrifices when needed. Chances are that if he truly is the man for you, he would meet most of your expectations. But there are certain boundaries that should not be crossed, and certain things that no woman should ever ask of her man. So, as far as expectations go, here are some that a woman simply shouldn’t have of her man.
1. Choose between you and his mom
The cardinal rule. Ladies, stop doing it. She is the woman who has raised him, taken great pains in order to make him the man he is today. She deserves the respect he accords her with. You are the woman he wants to spend his life with. He chose you. That is of great significance. Asking him to choose one over the other is a source of great distress for your man. If you and she don’t get on too well, then endeavour to avoid situations that would lead to conflicts, or seek to ignore aspects of her that never cease to pique you.
2. Give up his passions/ interests
Men and women both deserve to have interests/passions separate from their relationship. It is healthy for your relationship to set aside some alone time every now and then during which you are free to pursue your interests. If your man wishes to settle down and watch the game, then don’t begrudge him that. If he enjoys an hour or two of tennis, then let him have it without an argument. As long as his pursuit of his own passions does not affect your relationship and his commitments to you, then there is no harm in it.
3. Have a photographic memory
Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. They are, thus, different. Women tend to remember every single detail they deem significant, whereas men do not. You may remember what you two wore on a particular special night, he may not.
So, you met for the very first time on a starry night of April the 6th. But questioning him about it and subsequently hearing of his lack of accurate recollection of the night, would lead only to disappointment on your part. Men’s brains are wired differently to women’s, and it is impractical to expect them to recall each detail with vivid clarity. If it is that significant to you, tell him ahead of time, and save yourself unnecessary disappointment.
