Noticed that some women here are way too comfortable touching people they don’t know on the street. Just because I’m a man does not mean you can put your hands on me or do things that would get you punched in the face if you weren’t a woman.

I hear you, and you can tell them they don’t have consent to touch you. They will likely back off, unlike men who swear at us.

Now Imagine dealing with this every single day and fearing the persons reaction when you speak your boundaries 🥲

How have you been touched before?

@sa1, culturally yes I suspect you’re right but regardless, I’ve never experienced a guy even try it.

@a1, pretty quick tbh, I average 14 minute miles when walking around. It’s happened with perpendicular traffic if I’m waiting to cross a street

I thought you meant something different. Many people are comfortable acting in ways specifically because they know they are unlikely to get the same response as a man.

i’m in my late twenties and have only been in two serious relationships which have been both abusive. it’s caused a lot of depression. 50% of me is so confident with myself, the other 50% is so insecure and sad from being treated like shit by men the past six years. does anyone else agree that dating in this generation is depressing as hell? lol. i try so hard to enjoy my single life and keep my head up, but it’s inevitable that i feel super lonely/hopeless at times.

His messages show he still doesn’t know what he wants. Yet, if I am totally honest, I hate how part of me wishes he would do a grand gesture/finally decide to be a better man. It’s delusional. It’s crazy how love can be so rosy, sweet & blinding that the red flags seem surmountable.
