Lol, no I don't "act up" and no I don't "expect" a man to "put me in my place'" that's quite the spin!So basically you don’t know how to act and you depend on a man to put you in your place when you “act up” because you don’t have enough self awareness to know right from wrong? Screw that, I don’t have time to raise anyone, especially a grown adult. I don’t care if it’s feminine or what, BS is BS and I don’t tolerate that stuff anymore in my older age. I won’t withdraw attention or anything, I’ll just ghost you. Forever.
But hell we all (men and women) can behave in ways that might be hurtful, without being aware we are being hurtful, it's human nature.
There are no perfect people.
However, if you never do and act "perfect" 100% of the time, never unintentionally hurting your partner, good for you! You are a rarity.
And if/when I do, I appreciate when he confronts me about it versus passively cowering away and withdrawing.
That's ALL I'm saying.
