Do you throw up a little in your mouth whenever you hear a woman say she expects her man to “treat her like a princess?” Are you tired of the Princess Mentality exhibited by so many women today? Then it’s time to stop playing page, serf and vassal to her self-appointed highness.
With the exception of the few remaining royal houses, princesses aren’t born, they’re made. Well-meaning parents buy Disney princess costumes for their little girls and refer to their daughters as their “little princesses.”
Here’s the problem: Many little princesses grow up to become adult princesses with out of control entitlement issues, believe it’s all about them, all the time and that their wants and feelings trump all else. Self-appointed princesses typically don’t see their partners as equals, but rather as subjects who live to serve them. Reciprocity? Pfft.
For the men out there who haven’t figured out that a woman who refers to herself as princess is best avoided (huge red flag), this show is for you. It’s time to stop playing vassal to Her Monstrosity (i.e., her monstrous, over-inflated ego) and time to learn that healthy love relationships are about treating one another with MUTUAL respect, dignity, integrity, love, affection, consideration, getting back what you give and not treating one partner like royalty.
Please join your co-hosts, Dr Tara Palmatier of Shrink4Men and “Dr Paul” Elam of AVfM on Monday, March 26, 2012 at 9pm EST, when they’ll discuss a big part of the Princess Problem: Men who buy into these royal pains in the arse.
