Hi Daniel. Thank you for taking the time to respond to my story, but I feel your strong reaction misinterpreted much of what I wrote. First, I never said that all men behave like this. What I said was that most of my dates tried to get more out of me than kissing. And yes, it was 90% of the time. And when I say that, I should mentioned that I’m speaking of hundreds of first dates because I didn’t marry until I was thirty-four. And maybe I missed out on lots of fun in my twenties, but I was not “shit faced” and hardly drank more than a glass or two of wine. I also never referred to any of these men as “gross.” I would not have been kissing anyone who I wasn’t attracted to, so I really don’t understand. However, I do find your choice of words in your reply pretty tasteless.
