Rituals, Romance & Rants
Now I am probably breaking at least 165 rules by reposting a blog just so I can slag it off but we’ll see how it goes, cos I SO need (read: want!) to do this! I chose to follow this blog some time ago and tend to enjoy most of the posts but this one recently really got up my nose!
It’s a post about “Rituals in relationships” and for all that the concept sounds well and good .. and I could see where they were coming from.. it made me wonder! (As do lots of things)
Skimming quickly thru’ the entry, I found it was a bunch of nice ideas for ‘stuff’ couples could do to keep the romance alive in the relationships but the list of things was dominated by women suggesting bubble baths with their man. Lil notes in his lunchbox.. Picnics in front of the fire.
“Every Friday night, my partner and I stay out and cuddle and look at the stars together while I kiss his neck.” How much do you wanna bet he probly wishes she’d leave his damn neck alone cos he’s trying to watch the stars!? Or he’s wishing he was inside watching the football.
Yeah I know, that’s horribly cynical but I wonder:
Do men just tolerate this shit because they’re trying to be nice to their womenfolk (and cos they’re afraid of being accused of being a wanker) or do they really want to engage in rituals or do anything to keep the romance alive?
Instead, are they just happy enough as things are and wish we’d leave well alone?
