    PP just left for the week again, and in a candid conversation, I said "you are the one who calls me drunk from bars - at home - what are you worried about?"

    His response "you're too hot to be walking around bars by yourself, and I'm not"

    I wanna be flattered by that, but there is an underlying insult there.

    This means one thing to me, and one thing only: I'm gonna have to find it in myself to go out this week.

    I hate going out, I dislike people.............but his false sense of security needs to be slammed out of the park.

    Mrs. Low? Thoughts here?

    why do something you hate to do just to prove some stupid point to a guy who isn't even going to be around to see it?

    I've looked the same for 37 years before the 5 months I've been dating him, and entirely capable of always handling myself at a bar.

    I might fall on my face occasionally, but it's not like I ever slut it up and pick up random men.

    Hence the insult. I'm quite capable of being a loyal girlfriend.

    solid points

    Quite simply felt like a "controlling" statement to me, that I need to put into check.

    I am known for obsessing over silly things, and making points for no reasons, however.

    you're slipping, slippy, he means, he's an ugly fuck and nobody is gonna pay him any attention in a bar, where as you are hot and can leave the bar with someone if you were to choose to. :dontknow:

    oh, i re-read it

    you're bugged about the double standard; he can do something you cannot, because he is sure he can handle the "no attention" he's getting, whereas you would not be able to handle the "tons of attention" you'd be getting.

    curious why a strong woman would be attracted to a weak man

    He was just being self-deprecating.
    I don't see how going out to a bar by yourself would do anything besides you getting hit on by other guys.
