Here are the 5 reasons, that makes fairy tale romances, almost and always go wrong.1. Dark side Researchers term “benevolent sexism”, as the hidden dark side of the princess/knight mentality, which means believing in the women protection is  used to justify gender inequality.Women who wish to be treated as a princess, gets power in her romantic relationships from being prized by men and placed on a pedestal to be cared for, protected, and cherished. In exchange for this security, though, he gets to be "The Man." 2. Stunts growth Women who is willing to be a princess in the fantasy has one purpose, to exist to be adored. According to his ability to protect the princess, a man’s value as a romantic partner exists. Women, in the real world, may overemphasize their femininity, at the expense of their own personal power.According to the research, women with more romantic goals, would be less interested in mathematics and science careers and also do not experience their worth in other pursuits, having lower self-esteem. 3. Tough to match reality Research says that, fairy tale notion based marriages, concentrating on women protection and cherished for their feminine qualities lead to dismay when both members of the union cannot live up to expectations. In several couples, when men fail in giving this fake fantasy, the women feels defeated and hopeless.Also read: What not to do while arguing with women 4. Adores delicate femininity, but not assertive women The implicit “deal”, for the women willing to be in this kind of relationship, is that she will be passive and let her partner call the shots. Taking independent decisions may not be supported. Every consequential decision, is completely the man's responsibility. 5. Loneliness Research says women, who is keen of fairy tale ideas about romance and marriage, tend to have less relationship satisfaction and a more negative sense of psychological well-being-including depression-than women who are less compelled by fairy-tale ideas of marriage.Over the long term, holding one another to the rigid gender roles can be suffocating. The couple allowing one another to be their full selves have good emotional bonding, along with fun and joy in their relationship.By Phani Ch

Dhoni set for Zimbabwe tour May 24, 2016 11:06

Some of the choices made by the Indian selectors on Monday were perplexing. The squad for Zimbabwe has many youngsters, who have done well in the IPL, but Dhoni does not seem to have been assessed on merit. The selectors also did not pick a youngster to lead the side.The Dhoni-led side will play three one-day matches and two T20s in Zimbabwe.  All the players like KL Rahul, Karun Nair, Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal, have been rewarded for their excellent show in the IPL.Speaking on the issue, Chief selector Sandeep Patil said, “Dhoni has already retired from Tests and was very keen on being part of the side going to Zimbabwe. We also felt that the youngsters should get a chance to play under someone experienced like Dhoni.”Also read: Dhoni should be given choice: AzharuddinIn the IPL, Dhoni had a poor run, with his only innings of 64 not out, coming in the last league game, well after the elimination of the Rising Pune Supergiants.Dhoni in the World T20, has scored 89 runs in 5 games, and was a pale shadow of the formidable finisher of old. He in the last ODI series India played, against Australia, scored 86 runs from 5 games, thus making an average 17.20.Despite his comeback in the World T20, Yuvraj Singh was ignored, raising questions whether it is the end of the road for the all-rounder. “We are no one to say if it is the end of the road for anyone. He can still perform and win his place back,” Patil said.After facing an ankle injury in the World T20, Yuvraj Singh has also been average for Sunrisers Hyderabad, thus awaiting for a notable success since his comeback.Admitting that, they did not watch any IPL game from the stands, the Chief selector further said, “The problem with watching in the stadium is we cannot watch action replays. When we watch on TV, we get a better chance to assess the calibre of a youngster. It’s not that we are against the IPL, it is just that we prefer watching it on TV.”By Phani Ch
