Yes, I’m glad I recognize it. I can imagine how frustrating it would be if I didn’t; at least I feel like there’s something there I can control, rather than giving all of that control up. Or rather, not control so much as just being ok with who/how I am, not comparing to others, and working on the things about me I… Read more
I can totally empathize with that. I work in mental health so I’m trying to be understanding about my responses to therapy but it’s already hard and this is only week 1. I would very much like to curl up on my couch in a blanket with some tea and not speak to anyone for several days.

While I’m not ruling out the possible that he’s an IRL creep, it is entirely possible that he has a sext addiction, so to speak.
