Saying casual sex destroys your ability to form meaningful romantic relationships is like saying that talking to a stranger at the bus stop takes away the meaning of your friendships.
I wonder why I rarely feel
like my full self in the presence of most men.
I wonder if most men would hear that
and feel unwelcome in my presence.
I wonder if I have spent most of my life as myself
or most of my life as a welcome mat.
I wonder who is wiping their feet on my heartbeat.
I wonder how muddy my own boots are.
