It doesn’t matter what they say – we are very similar!
Occassionally, I also believe in those stereotypes. However, deep inside I sincerely believe they are false. And lately I experienced small, seemingly meaningless situation that convinced me even more that men and women are so alike. And I would like to tell it to you.
A while ago I have spent the entire weekend repairing my favourite shoes and clothes, including my favourite dress and pullover. Many of my clothes are very delicate. So, I should wash them by hand so they wouldn’t change colour.
What’s more, I have spent lots of time working on tiny details of my jackets with my sewing machine. Later on, I checked if all of my shoes are completely clean and shiny. I polished them more than two hours! Could you believe in this? Right after my husband came home and saw that I was still taking care of my clothes, he couldn’t believe it! He made fun at me that I spend the whole day on so boring things. This wouldn’t be so weird if you consider that he wouldn’t even iron his clothes.
Last Monday my husband went for a business trip to NYC. When he came home I wanted to know how he had spent a free weekend. My husband simply answered with the words “vinyl wraps nyc”. I had no idea what he was talking about. He explained that it was simply changing the colour and general look of his 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 excitement , I realized how much similar we are.
