If a woman were to tell her friends that she is the one that cooks and cleans, her friends would think that she was being horribly oppressed and they would tell her so, perhaps offering to confront her husband. Conversely if she mentions that her husband does all of that for her, her friends would say, “He really loves you”.
Women should not be embarrassed of admitting to caring for and serving their spouse and children, as their grandmothers and mothers have, and their marriages lasted longer.
Men like a woman who respects and appreciates them, cares and cooks for them, makes them feel important and on occasion even assumes the traditional role of a man, such as paying for a meal or initiating intimacy.
Women should not mar the kind act of caregiving by construing it to constitute gender privilege, weakness or subservience.

Happened to come across your blog unintently, while searching for something else. Would like you to understand that whatever you wrote about what a man likes holds true for women too. Woman likes a man, “who respects and appreciates them, cares and cooks for them, makes them feel important and on occasion assumes the traditional role of a man, such as paying for a meal or initiating intimacy.”
