The majority of housekeeping and unpaid work such as cooking, cleaning, and childcare falls on women, and while some men use women as cleaners or nannies, most are aware of the unbalanced workload and are content with it, but it's time to divide chores and have a talk.
Women in heterosexual relationships often have to start discussions about relationship issues but it takes two to make a team, and men who don't acknowledge problems and communicate well are generally not good romantic partners.
Women get burdened with explaining feminism and social issues to men, which can be exhausting, especially with the available resources like the internet.
Men can manipulate women, damaging their self-esteem and making them dependent on them, seen in "situationships," so women should choose good men and not let toxic men use them.
Women often fall into the trap of trying to fix "broken men" who can be manipulative and have attractive traits, but it's important to recognize that we shouldn't be fixing them and focus on our own problems.
Men who have been rejected often seek attention from multiple partners using a little attention, incapable of forming deeper attachments, and letting oneself be roped in by their attention will only lead to frustration.
If a man only takes you to fancy places and shows you off to others, showering you with gifts and expecting you to talk about how well he treats you, he may be using you as a trophy to flex on his friends and maintain his status.
Being a rebound isn't fair to the new partner and it's unhealthy, so if you find yourself in that position, take things slow and avoid becoming a rebound for him, even if you like him a lot, and if you meet someone who just got out of a relationship, give him time or don't date him at all.
