Every person I’ve ever entered into a polyamorous relationship with has told me they are good at respecting boundaries. And every one of them has been, right up until they encounter a boundary they don’t like.
If real life was like videogames, the soldiers approaching the beach on D-Day would have been psyched. Their reaction: “Once I kill this beach full of Nazis, I am totally going to level up!”
It’d be nice if we all got better feedback on what we were doing. Really, most of us live in a vacuum of feedback. Unfortunately, most of us lose our fucking shit whenever we get negative feedback, so nobody gives it.
I wish I got fewer crushes on people. It’s really awkward pretending I don’t have them.
I probably talk about ponies too much.
