A lot of people are starting to wonder why dating inrepparttar big city has suddenly become such a perplexing and complicated experience. And when, exactly, did this happen? The dating scene has always been a little troublesome for some people and could even feel like more of a chore than what should be a fun time. But latelyrepparttar 132285 single jungle of Houston and other large cities are changing and evolving into more complex designs of mass confusion. We seem to be moving faster and faster into complete chaos rather than assimilating intorepparttar 132286 well preserved roles that our mothers and fathers laid out for us. Gender roles are changing and this isrepparttar 132287 basic concept that is generally holding many of us back from entering successful relationships. More and more people are remaining single for longer periods of time. Part of this is because we are finding it difficult to accept and understandrepparttar 132288 new gender roles of our mates, even if we, ourselves, are holding to those new standards. The roles of women have gone throughrepparttar 132289 most dramatic changes. They have changed more inrepparttar 132290 last two generations than inrepparttar 132291 last two millenniums. Due to mass media, urbanization and politics, women have achieved equality to men in education andrepparttar 132292 workplace and everywhere else you look.

Our new found independence is something we fear giving back. The independent woman does not want to be controlled or told what to do. She will never again berepparttar 132296 docile little lamb once sought after for marrying purposes. This change inrepparttar 132297 lives of women in large cities has led to a second major change, this one in men. Men have moved from beingrepparttar 132298 gruff, rugged males to becoming “metrosexual” (a term coined by gay journalist Mark Simpson). Men have started to take over some ofrepparttar 132299 duties that women had always controlled. There are women working alongside these men inrepparttar 132300 office. And thanks to sexually homogenous advertising,repparttar 132301 meterosexual has been created. This new male breed has matching ensembles for every occasion, never has a bad hair day, loves manicures and smells like roses. He has no problem shopping, attendingrepparttar 132302 opera and buying new shoes. The metrosexual is completely in touch with his feminine side but there is just one thing: he is straight.
