Yes, if you're lying in his bad and at the same time he's fucking two girls in the living room and then acting all nice/, and saying how you're different/better it's cool. It's also fine if he tells you how to dress and forbids you from seeing other people. Don't worry about him saying he'll kill any guy that you have sex with either.

-Any adult, responsible decisions/acts/issues. NOT THERE! (they don't even have jobs for fucks sake! How's that for 'adult'. (view spoiler) Yeah, because responsibilities are booooriiiiing. Who would want to live about that? If you DNF you can't grasp how bad it was. But know this: fists solve all the problems. What is it with this new trend? The ideal man (if you want to learn from those books) is a disrespectful, selfish, forceful asshole/man whore with a philosophy of 'don't let her do what she wants because she doesn't really know what's good for her.'NOT A GOOD IDEA! Devoted solely to the amazing character of Travis "Mad Dog" Maddox. (Blame Jamie McGuire - she wrote it and I had to react)
