I believe in old fashioned relationships.
I believe that guys should take the initiative move and ask the girl out. I also believe in commitment and gender roles in the relationship; the men providing the lead and protection while the women follow. Yes, I know generations have passed, and that things have changed since then, and many people would think that this idea is sexist. But in my interpretation, women and men have endless differences, and no matter how much of a feminist you are, you must recognize that men and women are built and designed differently. Ironically though, that’s the beauty of love; having two contrasting objects fit together in a warm and appeased harmony. I believe in moving slowly (there’s no need to rush things) and building a foundation with the one you want to be with. I don’t like how in today’s world, people start dating as soon as someone says they like you. What happened to the getting-to-know-each-other process? Don’t be with someone just because it seems right at the moment, but be with them because you truly believe that it would work out in the long run. You’re either dating to get married, or dating to get hurt. I like long relationships, and I do not believe in hook-ups.
I don’t know that many people would agree with me, but this is the way I think. Take it or leave it.
