    The gender roles in dating interested me. I think it is no surprise to anyone here that I most def do subscribe to traditional gender roles. I can think of many reasons for this, a lot being how I was raised in a traditional Italian-Catholic household as well as being attracted to very alpha men. My husband is for sure very alpha, also a Catholic household raised very similar to myself. He also was raised very well by loving women who taught him respect for everyone. I don’t think he “expects” certain things of me but likes things certain ways and prefers them. Just as I do with him. Heck I paid for our first date, which is out of the norm for me usually on a first date. I can see someone having more issues with those traditional roles for various reasons but one being if they experienced a man (I of course say this as a female perspective) become very controlling or using this “role” to take advantage, manipulate, etc. Luckily that has never been the case in any of my dating experiences.
