“He’s my kind of Superman”
14 Feb 2018STORIESBY SweetEscape

“I think that damsels in distress are almost extinct. There are only very few left in this world. Despite how much men want to rescue them and how they dream about the romance involved in being rescued, women these days are very well capable of taking care of themselves. They hardly need any rescuing. Interestingly, as women become stronger and more empowered, men have changed too, like as though there’s a new breed of supermen. A superman for the super girls is different than the kind of Superman we all grew up with. Instead of physical strength, the new kind of superman possess inner strength, intelligence, and a huge heart.

I think that there’s nothing wrong with women who go after what they want. In fact, I often take pride in my leadership abilities to take control of every situation I find myself in. But that wasn’t always so. I used to feel like I needed to “dim my light” or to come off weaker than I was because I didn’t want people (men, especially) to find me intimidating. But then I though to myself, how tiring would it be to live a life you didn’t want? I believe that the man who would love me would take me just as I am. And I have to believe that with the rise of strong women who know what they want, there is also a rise of even stronger men with bigger hearts, who are humble and patient, who are generally easily content with life, possess inner strength, and most of all, have the innate ability to be completely CHILL, no matter what situation he finds himself in.

This is Mike. My husband, Mike, is that man. I am very fortunate to have met him. I love how he takes care of me, even when I tell him to back off because I can take care of myself. I love how he makes me even more complete than I thought I already was. I love the chemistry we share and I love feeling like he’s the piece that I’ve been missing in my life all this time.

Today is his birthday. And I want to celebrate the man he is. Happy birthday to my Superman.”
