Hello world … the Doctor is in …
Have you ever filled out an online application and they have an entry
field which asks you to select your title and you may choose “Mr., Ms.
Miss, Mrs. Dr. Esq. and etc”. My point is titles are important in the
world. How you address someone is important, because it states their
role, their importance and etc. WHICH explains why primarily women like titles. Its a great feeling to be able to walk around to know that you are a mom, a sister, aunt, wife, girlfriend and etc.
BUT when not giving those titles does it make you feel less than a woman?
Titles don’t make the relationship the people do however, I believe that titles signify the severity of the relationship as well as provide necessary roles and boundaries which are beneficial to the relationships. They also provide status which explains the person’s “high rank of social standing”. THUS women and most people like titles! This explains why Dr.’s like to be called doctors because it shows rank, speciality and its like a medal of honor after spending years in school. The same sort of applies with relationships! being called someones girlfriend, wife, boyfriend and or husband is like a badge of honor of your love.
No one wants to feel like they are in limbo of what to be referred to as, and naming is everything as well, there is a huge difference between your friend, your boo, your lover and etc. (i’m just saying)
So in essence titles mean ALOT SOMETIMES. No one wants to feel like they are settlings or deprived of something in a relationship.
Hmph … Just a thought … Until then I’m off …
