Frequently, I also believe in those stereotypes. However, deep inside I sincerely believe they are deceptive. And a short time ago I had small, seemingly meaningless occurrence that convinced me even more that men and women are so similar. And I want to tell it to you.
A while ago I have spent the whole Saturday decorating my favourite shoes and clothes, including my favourite dress and shirt. Nearly all my clothes are extremely delicate. Therefore, I always wash them by hand with the purpose that they don’t lose colour.
What’s more, I have spent plenty of time working on tiny details of my skirts with the sewing machine. Later on, I double-checked that all of my shoes are absolutely clean and shiny. I polished them more than 2 hours! Could you imagine this? When my husband came home and saw that I was still working on my clothes, he couldn’t believe it! He laughed at me that I spend entire day on so boring things. This is not so strange when you consider that he doesn’t even iron his clothes.
Last Wednesday my husband had to go for a business trip to NYC. When he returned I was interested how he had spent a free weekend. He just answered with the words “vinyl wraps nyc”. I didn’t know what he was talking about. It turned out that thi was nothing else than changing the colour and overall look of the car. As a woman, I was not able to think of the worst plan for the weekend. But when I was looking at my husband’s joy , I realized how much in common we have.
