Yes, of course, it’s prevalent everywhere. But Austin does have a unique dating culture — it is a bit on steroids.
If anything, the fact that you are so blase about it, is precisely why I wrote this story and called him out. I am not cool, accepting, or indifferent towards this behavior.
I have written elsewhere that I acknowledge I may be naive in the hope that he might treat the next woman better. But I would prefer to at least try to communicate rather than do nothing.
Thank you for reading and responding. Best of luck to you on your recent move and ongoing search.
