You are fighting a battle for control of your thoughts. We live in a decidedly female-centric society. I know, you're all slapping your foreheads and saying, "But men are the violent ones! Men are the cause of all the problems. They beat their wives! They start wars! And women still earn less money!"
Truth check: Statistics and studies (dating back to at least 1978 - See Dr. Suzanne Steinmetz) indicate that men are abused at least as much as women. Perhaps more, since men are afraid of the emasculation of reporting these incidents. Very few of these abusive incidents involve women acting in self-defense. Women do suffer more physical damage from their situations, and I don't want to make light of that. However, they are also not always as innocent as the "statistics" would have you believe. Men are not bad or evil.
Truth check: Women control media and markets through their buying power. Who buys most of the books, fiction and non-fiction? Why are there so many chick flicks? Ever wonder how a book with a title like "How to Dump That Jerk Man" can be printed, but if a book titled "How to Understand Female Mood Swings" were to hit the shelves, there would be protests and rioting? Because the book companies are in the business of making money, not publishing information and Great Truths. They do what they're paid to do, by their customers. Women buy most of the books published each year. Consider books on romance. Romance generated $1.52 billion in sales in 2001, romance fiction comprising 18% of all books sold and 54% of all popular paperback fiction sold in America. Of these readers, 93% were women, and half of them were married. (*Source: www.rwanational.orq Industry Statistics.)

There has been a distinct shift in American culture, a more feminized approach, if you will. Not all of this is bad, but the parts that delude men into believing that what women want is a man with female sensitivity are complete hogwash. You need to know that the social pressures you feel to commit and settle down are not necessarily the right paths.
Each sex has its own power and benefits. Men complain about how easy women have it. Women complain about how easy men have it. Neither one really has it any "better." So don't let a case of male guilt stop you from getting what you want from life.
