… My boyfriend and I have had to navigate this in a way where we both see each other’s way of being. Hope this helps-your Ex probably wasn’t being a misogynistic jerk-just highly sensitive.

Thanks for sharing! I agree this was something he was likely struggling with, and if he’d framed it that way, I’d have had all the patience in the world. Instead it was request after request for me to cater to his comfort with little consideration for how I felt, so I eventually stopped. I’m glad you have the self-awareness to navigate your sensitivity and not let it impact your relationship too negatively! Thanks for the book suggestion — sounds interesting.
