This is a topic that really winds me up. I admit that I am the first to jokingly say “Men are all the same” but I mean in terms of playing FIFA and when I have had my heartbroken. In reality, this is not true. Ladies, I am here to tell you that men are not all the same! Sure they don’t all ride in on white horses or save you from a tower guarded by a dragon, but I can assure you, many of them would if they were faced with the situation. I don’t think it’s fair to throw all men into a category of being creepy or even just mean. All of us women are angels, are we? Of course we’re bloody not! Wheres the equality people? That’s just life. You meet mean boys and you meet mean girls. You meet boys who could take advantage of you and you meet girls who could take advantage of you. This is not a one sided issue. I know plenty of men who would go to the ends of the earth to protect a woman if she was faced with any sort of harm, one of these being my sixteen year old brother. I admire his natural protective instinct and believe that this instinct is in the majority of men. Of course you meet a minority of men who will try to take advantage of you when you’re out and about, but I can guarantee that there is an even bigger queue of men behind them willing to take them out and defend you if necessary. Chivalry is not dead, and my own father is proof of this. He met my mum on a night out, was she traumatised by this? Well I’m guessing not since twenty two years down the line they’re married with three children! It all depends on the individual, not the gender. I have plenty of hope for men. My own boyfriend was protecting me a few nights ago when a random man was trying to grab me. That mans actions are the minority, my boyfriends actions are the majority.
To conclude, don’t lose hope in men. I hope this has highlighted something which I think needed to be addressed. Prince Charming’s are everywhere, you just need to be more open minded while searching for him!
