This is a question I get a lot and of course, there is more than one reason. But this one is a biggie. You see, feminine is a lot about receiving, masculine is mostly giving and doing for. When you’re dating, he’s doing, he’s working toward a goal, he’s giving you his time, attention, gifts, making arrangements for dates and you enjoy receiving all that attention.
Then, you get comfortable and your become a couple. Your natural tendency to nurture kicks in and you start taking care of him. This is fine but you’ve switched the tables. It’s okay to give, but at this stage, you need to let him know it’s in appreciation for all he does for you, how beautiful he makes you feel (if, indeed, he does). Otherwise, you encourage him to be lazy… and can you blame him? To keep the romance going, you need encourage him to continue to give and do for you (but ONLY if you let him know how much you appreciate all he does and how special he makes you feel) which will make him feel like he’s being successful as a man.
