“The most valuable lesson I’ve learned is how important it is to be truly mature and masculine. When she’s older than you by a few years, she’s probably got more life experience and as a result generally more mature. She’s not going to come down to your level and coddle you. You have to rise up to meet her.

It’s made me embrace all situations the same way. I never expect mercy and to be given slack, I work so hard to overcome challenges.”

To Be Okay With Being Me

“To be okay with being me. It’s okay to have demons, to have baggage, to not be entirely in control and on top of every aspect of your life, to be friggin human. Doesn’t mean it’s okay to stay stagnant and not do anything about those things, but it’s okay that they exist. Acting like they don’t exist or lessening their true impact on you to seem like some knight in shining armor is the wrong answer.

Be real. We’re human. Your partner is too.”

There’s No Age Limit For Being Crazy

“If they know you are not experienced in bed or have not tried a lot of positions they are very open to letting you try them out. And if there is a position that they know of that you have not mentioned or tried to do they will show it to you. No mind games. It makes for a very wholesome experience and leaves you wanting MORE.”

“I learned not to do it again. At first, it seemed cool to me. I was a young naive inexperienced 21-year-old. Then I realized she only chases barely legal guys. Then I realized what a red flag that is. She also always used any opportunity possible, whether it made sense or not, to accuse someone of being someone who can assault the young. Gaslighting much…?”

We were really well aligned in terms of interests and all that, and at some point, it clicked that I was just growing up a lot faster than her and in a few years I would be moving past her.”

“That women only mature once the attention they receive from men drops a bit. It’s like they start maturing, then boys like them, they stop maturing, then continue maturing once that attention drops later in life. It’s THEN when they learn to communicate directly. It’s THEN when they’re receptive to perceptions other than their own.

I’m talking specifically about beautiful women here.”
