Double Standards

2 Apr

Double standards, we all are guilty of them, whether we like to admit it or not. In the dating world, there are a lot of double standards, men and women face.

Breaking up:

When dealing with a “break up” the men always seem like the jerks and the women are the victims. Whether the girl is the jerk in the situation or not, she always seems to get the victim card- and we play it well thank you very much!

Girls are allowed to cry and use boxes of tissues after a breakup, but if a tear came strolling down a guys face, they would never hear the end of it!Image

Paying for Dates:

            No matter if you are dating for days, months, or years, the man is always expected to pay for the dinner. I find this so insulting because not only do I like paying for my own things, I actually can pay for my own things! Who says that a guy should pay for a woman every single time they are out? I think it should be even, and if you are with someone for a long time, you both should switch every other meal. (Or just stay home and cook together; it’ll be bonding time plus save you the extra cash!)Image


            Lets face it, if one of you cheats – there are different consequences for both genders. If a girl cheats, she is now known as a whore, a slut, a common girl who will be now be known as “the whore who cheated on ______”

            On the flip side, if a guy cheats, his reputation does not go down the drain, no in fact he may even be looked at as a hero to the male race. His friends will high five them as he explains his one nightstand with the random girl from the bar.

            This specific double standard is one of the ones that make me so mad. There is only one way to fix this though, if you are in a relationship…… DON’T CHEAT! It’s not science people!Image


            When it comes to flirting, if you are a guy who is flirting outside, you come off as a player. Whether you are being nice or you actually are flirting, it comes off as you being a jerk and player.

            If you a girl however, if you are out and about flirting, it doesn’t come off that way. Instead, it comes off as you being a nice girl!

            If a girl approaches a guy at a bar, she comes off as being “aggressive” or flirtatious, when if a guy approaches a woman, he comes off as being cool and slick.ImageImage

Whipped VS. Clingy:

            In any relationship, if a girl does what a guy wants and answers to him, she is viewed as clingy. One attribute you don’t want! If she calls and texts you and asks you where you are, you are viewed as clingy Most girls are actually viewed as this, whether they are or not. Men hate clingy girls, and one thing I take pride in is not being clingy.

            Men on the other hand have it a little worse. The equal attribute of “clingy” for men would be whipped! Girls love to have their boys whipped, whether it be them calling and texting them as soon as they “get to the bar with the boys” or them showing up to your house with roses, boys being known as whipped is a terrible thing. Girls love having their men whipped, and truthfully I do not know why! I think a guy should be the dominant one in the relationship.ImageImage

            The conclusion is, dating is not easy! Something that should be based around love is based on rules and you look to your friends.


Until next time,
