To be fair, I’m not going into a lot of detail about the rest of the manipulation in this piece — I’m focusing on how men who cannot express their feelings end up manipulating women into doing that work for them (probably unconsciously) but then projecting that women are the manipulative ones.

I do think it’s partially me- when this last guy said he had a hard time wanting to have sex with women he felt love for, I should’ve just left then. That is definitely on me. But it’s also on him for not doing any work around it, just accepting that as inevitable.
