RELATIONSHIPS: WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS? "WHEN FANTASY OVERTAKES REALITY."
All this and it didn't work. I had stopped doing the things I loved. The things that made me Veela. No more singing; no more modeling; the things that made me who I am. Don't get me wrong. I loved being a wife; but I had set the bar so high that I couldn't live up to my own expectations. Even in the end my ex-husband told me he would not find a woman who would do all the things I did for him. Part of it was my upbringing. I was raised to believe that you "cater" to your man. I have a tendency to baby and spoil the men in my life. Fixing their plate and those types of considerations; takes nothing from me. But where do you cross the line so that you are no longer allowing him to be at his full potential? To be the man that God created him to be.
I guess that everyone has to answer that for themselves. I don't think I've met any man who follows the mantra of the Babyface song. Heck, even before he was discovered Babyface was dating a woman who complained about his career. She told him he would never make it. Soon after their break-up he got his first deal. I can attest to the fact that he treated her like gold. This is when he had no money. Her expectations were completely distorted. I'm sure she regrets breaking up with him.
As always I want your opinions and experiences.
