I can relate somewhat ’cause I dealt with mothers who thought they were “MILF’s” (cougars?) when I was a teenager and women I wasn’t attracted to thrusting their boobs at me and flirting. I always thought the mating dance awkward and strange and I always looked for my escape. Probably not 1/4 as bad as what women have to deal with regularly but having read through the article, it’s true, especially the parts about smiling and playing along while internally wanting to scream.
The situation for “nice guys” is similar but I doubt it’s nearly as bad for nice guys as it is for women in general as the culture does support white men over anybody else generally speaking so even at its worst, I still had it easier.
One of the hardest things to deal with through my life was this phrase:
“All men are like [x]…” then awkward looks in my direction “… but no, not you Ken, you’re different.” I never knew what to make of that. But again, I doubt my experiences come close to comparing.
