Pressure for sex
This is another thing I overlooked. I went out with so many guys who would make me feel guilty for not wanting to have sex early on. They wouldn’t physically pressure me, but they would emotionally do so. They would essentially throw tantrums. We’d be hanging out, we’d start making out, and when I said I wanted to take things slow, their entire attitude towards me would change. They’d move to the other side of the room, start doing something on their phone, and completely ignore me. They’d say things like, “You’re obviously not interested in me so what are we doing here?” If they didn’t get exactly what they wanted, they made me feel guilty. Looking back, I realize that was not okay.
