This Is The Kind Of Pressure Guys Get From Their Parents As They Start Hitting Their Late 20s

The pressure to get married, settle down and have kids isn’t something only women deal with… guys do too, and it’s just as annoying. Guys, if you’re approaching your mid to late 20s, you’ve probably heard all of this…

“Eres el hombre de la casa” is something your parents said to you growing up. While it may have boosted your confidence, hearing this also added a tremendous amount of pressure.

Your family thought this made you feel powerful. At times it did, but saying this also made you feel as if you were responsible for carrying the weight of your entire family. That’s a heavy load. 

As you got older, your parents and tíos shifted their focus to your personal life.

Ladies aren’t the only ones who get asked this question. Guys also receive a lot of judgment when they’re in their 20s and not throwing around the names of girls they’re dating.

And if you’re still single by the time you hit your mid to late 20s, your family becomes extremely concerned about when you’re going to settle down and get married.

But what’s the rush?!

Your mom then starts to complain about how she’s getting old and wants grandkids before she dies.

Earlier today. This is the 2nd time I've had this conversation with my moms and it's even harsher hearing it again. I was just gettin ready lol

Because popping out kids is something you decide on the spot.

When having kids isn’t a lot to ask, your family also expects you to make a ton of BANK… ?

It’s as if they think you can become a billionaire over night.

And pay for their bills.

They try to guilt trip you and remind you that they paid for you your entire life.

On top of the bills, you’re also expected to do all of the heavy lifting around the house – literally and figuratively.

They have no idea how much weight they’re putting on your back.

And if something breaks, you better be prepared to fix it.

This comes with being el hombre de la casa.

And on top of all that, since you’re un hombre, you can’t be scared of anything.

Cuando la cucaracha vuela ??

Posted by Un Huevo on Wednesday, July 5, 2017


Well maybe you’re allowed to be scared of a flying cockroach, but other than that you have to be a brave, strong and hard working man which can definitely get exhausting.

But at the end of the day, no matter how pressured you feel to be the strongest, bravest and hardest working man in your family, the best person you can be is…yourself.

Just do you. ??

If You Actually Care About Your Novia, Here’s Some Ways You Can Prove It

If You Actually Care About Your Novia, Here’s Some Ways You Can Prove It

Jason Marcus / mitu

You don’t have to be married in order for the expression “Happy wife, happy life” to relate to you. As is the case in every kind of partnership, the success of your relationship depends heavily on the effort put into maintaining the team’s morale. So, here’s a list of ways that you can go the extra mile and become a better teammate to your novia.

When she wants to unload some spicy chisme, let her… no matter how long it takes.

CBS New York / YouTube

Even if you don’t care, and you won’t, because you don’t even know the people she’s dishing on. Just smile politely and nod. Occasionally pay attention and read her vibe, so you can pretend to aggressively take her side in a way that shows her you’re listening and that you got her back.

Surprise her with things that only you know she loves.

The Mask Of Zorro / Sony Pictures

If you know she likes comics, surprise her with a graphic novel. Send her favorite flowers to her work for no reason. If she likes to travel, pack her bags and book a trip to somewhere you know she’ll love.

Compliment her intelligence as often as her beauty.

Remind her that she’s at least a triple threat. Tell her she’s beautiful, but also brilliant, and the very model of modern-day womanhood.

If she makes herself look silly in public, join her in looking ridiculous.

I Love Lucy / CBS

You’ve been there before, so you know how much she’ll appreciate you standing by her when she’s looking foolish. One person looking silly alone is odd, but two people being confidently ridiculous is a demonstration of solidarity that moves through the room like a choreographed dance in clown shoes.

When she asks you something that requires a delicate answer, chew on your words a while before answering so you can respond sensitively.

GIPHY

Unless it’s definitely your hill to die on, weigh the pros and cons carefully. What she’ll probably consider the wrong answer here might float if you take the time to fully form your argument and then phrase it exactly right.

If she ever admits that she was wrong about something, forgive her right away.

Modern Family / ABC

You know how hard it can be to admit when you’re wrong, so take any “W” with class. Show her your capacity for compassion by demonstrating your ability to accept her when she’s made a mistake.

Pay close attention to her emotional needs…

Colombiana / Sony Pictures

Women experience a whole range of emotions even when it isn’t that time of the month. Tend to her feelings by asking if she needs anything by checking in with her about her day. Go next level by putting on a Lifetime movie and sharing a real cry with her.

…As well as her needs in the bedroom.

Nacho Libre / Paramount Pictures

Sex is a team sport, so if you both don’t win, you lose. Being an attentive lover is paramount in learning what she likes and how to satisfy her. Luckily, it’s often the thought that counts, so your eagerness to please her will go a long way. Also, it’s not just a sexual thing, spoon with her at least until your arm falls asleep, dude.

Like you, the easiest way to her heart is through her stomach… because they get hangry af.

GIPHY

Women and men are a lot alike. Satisfy her appetite and you’ll win her over before the food coma hits.

But remember, a relationship is give and take, so she’ll need to be there for you in all the ways you’re there for her.

GIPHY

If your novia isn’t reciprocating your efforts, let her know. It’s your responsibility to be honest with each other, so don’t be afraid to open up and be clear about what you need from her.

Teamwork makes the dream work, and the only ship worth a damn is a relationship or whatever. Am I right?!
