not trying to purposely be contrary with you because I think you're an awesome young woman, and I value your opinion a great deal, but what do you mean by "guyish side?" I'm assuming you mean perhaps "not caring as much" but not sure. Outside of casual sex kinda relationships*, if you have a relationship that goes beyond one night and you like and/or love the person....what is this about "girlish" or "guyish" side? Doesn't anyone (guy or gal) simply want to be loved and appreciated?
*of which I personally am not ashamed to admit I had many before I "settled down" - I blame it on the free for all sex, drugs, & rock 'n roll 70s and early 80s.... and it was awesome while it lasted
Well I wasn't talking about sex or wanting to be loved or appreciated. I think that is equal for each sex. I just meant that I'm not really too into all of the romantic gestures and details like that that are stereotypically considered girly. When I'm in a relationship I'm totally commited and care just as much as the other person. Personality wise I've just always hung out more with guys and done more "guy type" activies.
well - I think you've "muddied the water" a bit (in a good way ). I think again it boils down to the problem of stereotyping - what one means by "romantic gestures?" - I mean - what does that really mean? - I don't think that is the sole avenue of men or women. It can mean SO many things*....I would suggest that NO ONE should limit themselves to what the stereotype of whatever is. People really need to get out of this male vs. female thing and just BE.
*a recent example personallly was a very beautiful book that was bought for me at Christmas
