First post in anything RP related. But I've read the sidebar and have been reading through posts and threads for about a month.
^ Anyway, branching off from this topic, I have to ask, is expressing your feelings in the form of anger or aggravation, then followed by planning and action, still a bad idea?
I read through the thread and agreed with just about everything mentioned. But I didn't notice anyone speaking on this particular thing. I'm asking because I've had a few relationships where the women pointed out how aggravated and angry I seem to be. And it always surprised me because majority of the time, I'm constantly joking around. Regardless, they still continued to mess around with me. These were women I was in a LTR with and women that were attempting to be in a LTR with me.
Maybe my SMV was high enough to balance this out? Maybe the fact that I wasn't simply bitching, but also planning to fix the problem and actually made moves to do so (successfully), helped? Or maybe they did lose some respect for me, but since I was already having sex with them, they let it go...???
