This reminds me of a quote from a book I really like, The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton: "His father was the kind of man who delights in a charming woman: who quotes her, stimulates her, and keeps her perennially charming."*Consider me a set of pearls. I don't want to be locked in a safe like a valuable jewel while you take the paste copy out in public. I'm most lustrous when worn. That's when my full beauty comes through. Need an interpretation of this metaphor? It means, let me live and be real, fully engaging in and participating in life with you. Don't stick me up on a pedestal, suddenly thinking less of me when I prove I'm human just like you. Accept me as an imperfect, but beautiful, creation.
The explanation is about 99.9% of the time that they are a spineless, classless piece of trash who, if asked with a gun to his head why he behaved that way would say, "Because I couldn't stand the thought of seeing her get all emotional. I just can't deal with big crying scenes. It was just easier for me to just run away. And all i care about is what's easiest for me. Which is why i'm such a prick."jerking someone around who's been nothing but honest and open with you, waiting for them to let their guard down and trust you before you turn tail and run away with no explanation whatsoever, is fucking evil and cruel and makes you an indisputably shitty person.
and you wonder why some women have such low opinions of men.
Don't feel that way...really. It has happened to everyone, most more than once. Some of the most beautiful, intelligent women I know repeatedly have such things happen to them. I can't explain it, just know you're not alone.what sucks is that i really consider myself an intelligent, perceptive person. i don't understand how i repeatedly fail to see these things coming.
i feel so fucking worthless.
Double EFF that.what sucks is that i really consider myself an intelligent, perceptive person. i don't understand how i repeatedly fail to see these things coming.

Some of you guys are well versed at old-fashioned touches. Opening a door, holding a chair, helping us to put on our coat, your hand in the small of our back to guide us through a crowd. And you're as nice and respectful to the friends of the woman you're dating, and you are to her. Bravo to you - your value is rarely lauded, and that's a shame.
There are so many little unspoken things like that, and doing them really shows us that you care, and that you're a gentleman.
Oooh! It's true, it's true. That is one of my favorite parts of the day, and I'm always happy when I'm around to see it.:smitten:I nearly forgot this one....
You know that look I give you when you step out of the shower in the morning, naked and wet, smelling of yourself, soap and shampoo? It's NOT disgust or me checking for shrinkage. It IS pure lust.
seriously. i love nice guys. just not the ones who suck.The single best and most reliable indicator that you are a complete dickhead is if you sigh and say, "You know, women just don't like nice guys."
You know who never uses that phrase?
Men that are actually nice.
Every man I have ever encountered who has said that was light years away from being nice.
