    i think both women and men have changed. but yes i agree with many of the PP’s, a lot of guys in their twenties are just big lazy man-children. i also believe that how you were raised plays a big part though too. my man is very much old-fashioned and very much a gentleman.. i honesty have never met a man like him. i’m lucky i found him, because they just don’t make men like they used to!

    I didn’t even vote because I don’t feel like any of those really fits my response. My husband was raised really well and is an old-fashioned gentleman. I have seen many men who are total trash though. It completely depends on parenting.

    @rachelmichelle:  I completely agree with you there! 

    I also think that men in that age bracket (18-30) have no idea about half the stuff our fathers, uncles,  grandfathers did. My Fiance changed his own oil, put the snow tires and does all the plumbing and electrical around the house and my friends were like “can’t you just pay for someone to come and do that?”
