I'm wondering if others have or are dealing with this.... or if it even needs to be dealt with at all since gender roles in gay relationships are open ended like they are becoming in hetero relationships these days.
My BF and I have been together for over a year now and we seem to have fallen into "traditional" gender roles. I've taken on more the feminine component over the year or so. For instance, with cooking and cleaning- I always find myself cooking for him when I'm over at his place. Not that I don't mind but sometimes he'll play video games when I'm cooking dinner (I'll have to ask him to help out sometimes when he should know I need it)
He makes more than I do and is more dominant also which I don't mind... I have more of a decorative eye and caught myself saying once when I was frustrated with him for something "What is it with men and..." Though, we're both guys so idk but it's interesting these gender roles came about; consciously or not.
Maybe we're just very a traditional couple (whatever that may mean and it has outdated connotations) Maybe should move to the suburbs with a dog. IDK... Anyone else feel this way in a relationships it doesn't bother me but on the other hand I'm not sure if it should or not.
