Claire Grey who is a psychotherapist by profession says she views herself as a 1950s housewife and imagines finding that perfect love of her life who will be a gentleman in true words. Grey lays down the rules for the 'perfect man' and says that she is in search of love just like what her parents shared.
Woman Who Wants To Be Treated Like '1950s Houswife' Says She Feels Cringed Out When She Sees Women Paying For Their Dates
Claire Grey, 39, who recognizes herself as an anti-feminist shares that she cringes whenever she sees a woman paying on a date, saying she believes the man should always be the one who bears the expense.
Grey has a very traditional approach to life and channeling her inner 1950s housewife, the woman has some very old-fashioned reviews when it comes to gender role.
Grey, who was named ‘Mrs Wales’ in the over 30s category last year, said she won't stand for a bloke who doesn't conform to the old-school way of romance, as she simply wants to be treated 'like a lady'.
Talking to the Mirror, the psychotherapist said: “I’m like a 1950s housewife – I believe the man should work and the woman should look after the home.
“They should have dinner on the table for their man and make sure household chores are taken care of.”
Grey, from Swansea, has very high expectations from her dates and shares that she often tests men on dates by asking if they want to go for a second round, explaining that she wants the man to be 'shocked and mortified' if she bought them a drink.
She continued: “A man must get out and knock on my door for a date.
“He must open the car door for me – not just on a first date but always. He should always pay for the date. I actually cringe when I see women going up to a bar to pay. It is not the woman’s place and it is embarrassing.
“He must not swear, or if he does, he must apologise. He must drive most of the time and always put petrol in my car – I shouldn’t have to get my own petrol.
“I expect flowers and romantic gestures. I should be made to feel special. As the relationship progresses, if heading towards marriage and kids, he should know that I will not be working once kids come along.”
Grey claims that chivalry is very improtant to her and insists that she'd rather a man take her to McDonald's and pay than take her to 'a plush restaurant' and expect to split the bill.
She further shared that kissing is a strict no on the first date and no sex for at least six months and that too only if a 'proposal is imminent'.
"I’m so anti-feminist," she said.
"Women these days are easy and will sleep with men on the first date.
“Then men start expecting that - it makes it hard for people like me.”
Grey says that she dreams of having a relationship that her parents had, saying her dad is a 'true gent' and a 'real romantic'.
“That’s the relationship I want," she said.
"I know my views are prehistoric and aren’t very popular but I am desperate to find love. “I just want a good, old fashioned man to settle down and grow old with.”
