— The dude whose dates don’t want to talk about #Me Too I’ve been dating since the Weinstein story dropped in October, and any time I’ve brought it up, which is like three or four times on dates with different women, they’re like, “Let’s talk about something else.” They acknowledge it’s messed up, and I don’t know if it’s bad conversation for a date or what, but it goes nowhere.
I wanted to talk about it because it’s something that’s in the news all the time, instead of talking about sports or the NBA All-Star Game, I’d bring it up, like, “Where’s your head at about this?
— The divorcee getting back into dating I have been single for a little over a year.
I was dating in the summer, and in September I decided to to take a break.
Even if you like the person, you can not be comfortable or feel like it’s going too fast, and that’s also okay.
I’ve been in a situation where it shouldn’t have gone there, and felt regret after the fact.
I’m good with the women I’ve gone out with not being interested in talking about it.He told me about how the experience changed how he approaches dating and in particular, he now looks for really clear, verbal consent.I thought it was refreshing to see someone to get this honest with a near stranger, especially since it didn’t paint him in a very flattering light. But talking about the Aziz Ansari story, the fact that this situation is even associated with those issues — it’s not correct. Guys need to be more sensitive and women need to communicate when they want to shut it down.So while walking home, I asked him what he thought about #Me Too and I instantly thought to myself, Oh my God, why am I doing this?!I’m on my way to my house and he’s totally going to mess up this answer and I’m going to have to sleep with him anyway because I haven’t had sex in six months, but I’m not going to enjoy it as much.
