Thirdly, a lot of retrospection. #MeToo was a very important movement for me. I fully supported all the women writing those stories, and have always been a feminist at heart. But sometimes when I read them I would see me, or young me at any rate, taking the role of the creep in the story. I saw myself being someone else’s #MeToo and I did not like who that person was. So I made an effort to change. (I’ll add that I wasn’t as bad as the vast majority of these stories; it’s the Skeleton always be nice to electrians we could make it look like an accident shirt ones I’d see myself in, but it still felt shitty to know I’d probably made someone feel bad enough to write a story about it).Yeah, it took years for me to sort out the “don’t take rejection personal” bit. Lots of self-hatred I had to sort out in therapy. Now I’m in my first “stable” relationship, and have been since lockdown started.
Best Skeleton always be nice to electrians we could make it look like an accident shirt
I remember reading that quote as well and feeling so horrible about Skeleton always be nice to electrians we could make it look like an accident shirt I had done. I had an ex fwb who would invite me over for sex on a pretty regular basis. One time she invited me over but we just drank and hung out. It got late so I suggested going to bed but she said she wasn’t in the mood. I was horny/tipsy and used to her inviting me over for sex so I was doing the whole “come on let’s just go to bed, we can just go to sleep” thing. I wasn’t being serious about it and thought I we were joking around and picked her up and moved towards the bed and she got this scared/mad look on her face and loudly said “NO!” I immediately put her down and left shortly after. I was embarrassed and confused and thought she knew me well enough to know that I would never hurt her or anything. I apologized the next day and tried to explain my misunderstanding of the situation and she was cool with it. (We went back to hooking up on a regular basis again for another half year or so.) But I just still remember the look of fear and anger she had and it still makes me feel horrible that I caused that. I consider myself a kind and caring person and knowing I made a girl think I was possibly going to rape her or something makes me sick to my stomach. I think it’s easy for guys to forget that we are typically much bigger/stronger and that a lot of women live in fear of what we could do. Even though we clearly moved past that incident, I still feel sad that I made her scared in that moment.
