"A man who calls her baby"

Sunday, December 02, 2012

I've been seeing this idea making the rounds on FB.

"Every woman deserves a man who calls her baby, kisses her like he means it, holds her like he never wants to let her go, doesn't cheat or lie, wipes her tears when she cries, doesn't make her jealous of other women, instead makes other women jealous of her, is not scared to let his friends know how he really feels about her, and lets her know how much he really loves her. Re-post if you agree."

I ignore the postings, because my first reaction, to the first requirement of what a woman "deserves" is revulsion.

I agree with the remaining 90% of the quote - aside from the run-on nature of the sentence itself.

However, I have never wanted, nor would I ever accept a man who called me "Baby." I'm no one's baby but my mom and dad's. When a man calls a woman "Baby" I always get this creepy feeling like he's asserting his rights over her as a person. He is the adult, she is the child and he will take care of her.

Not for me. Thank you.

I think a woman deserves a lot more than to be someone's "Baby." I think every woman deserves a man who knows how strong she can be, and isn't afraid to share his own vulnerabilities with her.

"Every woman deserves a man who knows she is equal to him, kisses her like he means it, holds her like he never wants to let her go, doesn't cheat or lie, wipes her tears when she cries, doesn't hide his tears from her, doesn't worry about jealousy, is not scared to let his friends know how he really feels about her, and lets her know how much he really loves her. Re-post if you agree."
