Does this make guys like Robert Pattinson and Justin Bieber wonderful or just plain whipped?
It’s not uncommon to find that, in relationships, one person loves more than the other. Guys like Robert Pattinson, Justin Bieber and Brad Pitt exemplify this trend; they seem to be whipped by the ladies in their lives. But should you have almost total control over your man like Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez and Angelina Jolie seem to do?
The Biebs, 17, appears to be following his older woman, 19-year-old Selena, around the globe. Brad Pitt is often found toting around he and Angie’s six kids. R-Patz may be a vampire, but he’s constantly making wolfy puppy dog eyes at K-Stew…and I can’t even get into how whipped Kris Humphries is — his whole personality has been consumed by wife Kim Kardashian and her family.
The results of a recent poll on HollywoodLife.com indicates that you think Rob, 25, and Justin are the most whipped guys in Hollywood. At weigh-in time, the “Baby” singer was winning in the whipped games with 41.84% of the votes; the Breaking Dawn was a close second with 38.73%.
But is it a bad thing to be wearing the pants in your relationship?
To some women, love is all about control. If they can’t call the shots, they’re not happy. Similarly, strong women like Kristen, 21, and Angelina, 36, think they like to take the lead, but are also happy when the guys in their lives stand up to them. It’s a give and take relationship.
Any partner having complete control over the other isn’t a good thing. You want your man to be your equal. It’s human nature to want what we can’t have and ignore what comes too easily, especially for the less highly evolved. That said, each of the couples mentioned seems to have found what works for them.
It’s nice to be adored by the guy in your life, but don’t turn him into a slobbering puppy dog. I guarantee you, the longer he’s following in your footsteps, the more bored you’ll become.
