Women with significant others can often feel they slip into the role of PA when it comes to organising their man’s life.
And they’d be right. Men still rely on their partners to remind them what they’ve got planned, despite owning the latest gadgets, a new study reveals.
New research released today shows one in five men (21 per cent) bank on their partners remembering what they have planned on the weekend.
That’s right, sort your lives out men! Because, as we know, you’re all a bunch of overgrown children unable to look after yourselves without your female partner sorting everything out for you, right? It’s a wonder you even got dressed this morning!
Needless to say, whenever there’s this level of gender stereotyping in the media, there’s always a company behind it looking to profit… in this case a well-known voucher website:
Roy Blanga, managing director at Groupon UK who conducted the study, said: ‘It can be difficult to get events booked in when you’re dealing with friends and family.
‘But there are so many easy-to-use mobile apps and websites out there to help us find inspiration, there’s no reason not to the rescue the situation and organise a get-together in the spur of the moment.
‘We can quickly search online for deals on theatre trips, comedy gigs, or even holidays – all the information is available at our fingertips.’
We know you’re useless, men, but the least you could do is make an effort to arrange events – starting with the events listed on Groupon, for one.
