I hate that "the feminists" ruined this discussion from years ago. It is too bad. I am in no way advocating their negativity, only that two people-a man and a woman- should be able to bring lots to the table. Obviously women did nto have that opportunity in the past. I am not talking about ignoring one's husband but I am talking about finding ways to share these interests together.
Yeah, I would agree. I think there's a balance in it all and part of that is a man and a woman sharing interests and doing things together. I think both should bring different things to the table and that way they can teach each other and I think there's something to be said for them sharing an interest they don't know how to do and they can learn together.
Maybe I am putting this topic out there using the wrong words.
I should just state that I am looking for someone who has interests like art, music, and hiking because I want to share those activities with someone- a mate.
I can teach a guy who does not know the arts, about art, and music and I hope to learn about his interests too!
I recently subbed in a classroom where the teacher (male) had some books on the psychology of coaching sports. I read the book and gained a newfound respect for sports being used to increase self esteem in adolescent boys. This made me want to learn more about sports in general than I ordinarily would want to know. If I knew how this psychology works, it would help me in many ways. This would be an example of me being open to a new interest that a man may have or be willing to share with me. ie sports or coaching
I should have talked about shared interests or teaching one another as well as talking about our current interests as individuals.
