I remember when my ex-husband and I were dating, his friends would call him "PW". I had no idea what sort of nickname they had given him. He would always look half-annoyed/half-embarrassed. One day I decided to ask what the nickname meant.
Apparently they only called him that around me. Apparently they called him that because he was a completely different person around me.
According to Urban Dictionary, the term has quite a few connotations:
pussy whipped ~
(1) adj - situation whereupon a male is undeniably at the mercy of his high-maintenance girlfriend & answers to her every beck and call, usually followed by the re-prioritizing of girlfriend over friends, family, school, food, water, and air.
(2) adj - making decisions based on the incentive of sex.
(3) Your world blindly revolving around your woman.
Yeah. You get the idea.
Just as I blogged a few weeks ago about how some women get "dickmatized", apparently the opposite is true.
When I think about my ex-husband, I feel bad that his friends called him "PW" during our dating days. I mean, I didn't think I was a "high maintenance" girlfriend who always demanded my way. But, I guess when a man is falling in love, he does whatever he can to make his girl happy.
Or is that the reason?
We are all responsible for our actions. Sometimes those actions are driven by love. Sometimes they are driven by a different urge.
Have you noticed this?
Will a man stick around in a relationship, good or bad, as some women do, simply because they're gettin' some?
