To my fellow young ladies:
Let's not be afraid to pull out our wallets for our boyfriends, meaning we need to understand that we have a job to treat them feel special too. If we claim to be in a committed relationship, we should show certain signs of our commitment. Being in a committed relationship, we are past the dating stage. It is no longer about the guy treating us out; it is about consistently making each other feel worthy. Just as he has to show signs that he can take care of his significant other, as young ladies, we should do the same. We are not exempt, and I am uncertain as to why we think otherwise.
I constantly see young ladies, who crave to be catered to, always treating their significant other like he's trash, but on social media complaining about how he "doesn't treat me right, anymore." As young women, we need to understand that relationships are not a one-way street. Pay for a meal sometimes, at least pick up the tip every once in awhile, let him take a ride in the passenger seat. A relationship is mutual, and regardless of what society tells us, a man deserves a box of chocolates on valentines day too. A man should be treated just as special as a woman expects to be treated. If we're blessed enough to have a young man that treat us like queens, then he must realize he's a king, so let's acknowledge him as well.
