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.

Queen of mixtapes. Lover of music, travel, and fashion. Authentic sharer of life lessons and dating foibles.
