Abandonded those of us who have faced some abuse are in a class all our own male or female, though there are many of us. Treating a woman like a princess probably means many different things to different people.
I think of the polarization of Paris Hilton's narcissistic escapades and dear Terry Irwin who just lost Steve. Paris wants a multi million dollar diamond ring, Terry wanted an animal activist like herself. When Terry talks of Steve, she mourns not for the diamon ring he gave her, but his romantic passion for her, crocs, all animals and the earth. I don't think he wasted time opening doors for her when they had a gigantic croc in the truck bed.
Thus we must know ourselves and find someone who shares our passions for anything lasting to have a chance.
For me it was never about money, although I did set a standard that I would not allow a man to take from me financially. I also have no need to have a man give me money to show his love, money does not equate love to me.
Princess lessons; (warning- old fashioned values)
Do NOT try to seduce a date/friend in any way shape or form even if you think she wants it. Most do. We get horny too that doesn't make it the right thing to do. Be mature and hold back.
Do NOT expect us to take care of you and if we do anything for you at all, appreciate it.
Keep in mind that we are nurturers by nature, don't take advantage of that.
Listen closely to what we say and you will learn what we need from you. Some women want flowers, candy, doors opened etc, some don't. You want to find these things out. I couldn't care less for all that. Listening closely will also tell you if a woman is interested in you or your favors.
Don't spend 1 penny on us unless it is a free gift. We don't need your sex deposits. Give freely if you feel it, don't if you don't. That way if it doesn't work out you will have no regrets.
You deserve someone really special Thomas. When I go to the city I meet so many people living shallow lives. People who live for clothes, things, new cars, media induced madness, that just doesn't seem like you. You need a woman that values the elderly, life, simple things. Think about it, if there were many women out there who value the elderly like you do, why would there be so many lonely seniors in nursing homes without visitors?
It's not you my friend.
