Why I write this is because there is a wave I see on Swedish blogs on reflections about the expectations on a woman. She has all the right to be free and not do everything in order to fit in to the expectations of what a woman should be like: soft, giving space, pleasing to the eye, taking care of the household, taking care of the kids (because why would her husband care? He was there at the reproduction moment, wasn't that enough to ask?). The modern woman is still posed the same questions. At 25 - why are you still single? At 31 - why are you not married? At 37 - why don't you have kids, is something wrong?
What is much more meaningful to ask a woman, and probably much more interesting: what is your current project? Have you discovered what makes you happy? Have you been to Madagascar? Are you planning to embark on a second master? What is the most recent provoking news, you think? Do you have a motorbike? Which author would describe what happened to you today the best?
And listen with interest when she speaks, without interrupting and without prejudices but an open mind. Maybe even without thinking about her age, not even for a second.
