Thanks for sharing! I agree, many of his requests were reasonable… but his lack of flexibility didn’t feel too good. And the hair thing was over the top. I lived with someone so we didn’t spend much time at my place but the few times we did, he treated my place as he did his own. In some ways I felt much more comfortable there but I was also very aware of all the faux pas I was making in his mind. Ultimately, we just did relationships differently.

I love that you hitch-hiked alone and barefoot across the country! I hope you write a story about that!
