Yes, most expect you to be their SO, mother, and maid.

I think over-expectations can go both ways. I don't expect any more of a man than I'm willing to do myself, or would expect of another woman.

The wrong man does. If you find the right man, there should be equality at the very minimum. Do we expect too much from men?

Depends on the man. My exhusband did. My fiancée does not.

My ex actually resented me in a lot of ways.  My ex expected me to be his ATM machine the last three years of our marriage and really even before that.

Honestly, I think sometimes we allow men to think that way about women...I know I am guilty of throwing up my hands and saying the famous line "I'll just do it myself". Sometimes we do it to ourselves.

In some ways, but we sometimes expect too much from them as well.
