I totally love a man who is traditional-minded in relationships. He likes a woman to take care of him in the kitchen and to be there for him in the bedroom. He's smart, he's fun, he's responsible. He has the qualities that I find I want at this stage of my life.
I've always been independent, yet, I find that I like all of the ways he has introduced me to and I grow fonder all the time of being in a position to give him the care he wants. It feels as though I have a special purpose that was lacking in my independent world.
He has started to make more decisions in our relationship (over simple matters) and taking more control of decision making. While this may be an uh-oh signal for some, I like this, too. It lifts burdens off my shoulders and I like knowing he is there to handle some of the everyday struggles—battles that are a challenge for me yet second nature to him to easily handle.
He does Taken In Hand in subtle ways, the emotional.
I've done the feminist-type way of life, not to the extreme but in the sense of being independent and in control of what I want. Now, I find that the way of life that he wants with a woman in a traditional role seems to make me happy. I don't know why. Is this what woman are really supposed to be when we cut away the layers of clutter that society has laid down?
[EDITOR'S NOTE TO THE WRITER: If you give me a name I will attribute the above piece accordingly. Secondly, could I persuade you to say more about the subtle ways your man is taking you in hand? I think readers would be interested to hear more detail, should you feel inclined to share it.]
