Guys who say they don’t know how to behave now never knew how before — it’s just that no-one ever called them on it in the past.

The only men I’ve ever dated, married or slept with have all been this kind. It’s really just not rocket science, and pretending it is is just an excuse to not have to potentially hear “no.”
