so they flip the script to "convince" the women it is SHE who is low (wo)man on the totem pole
I see it over and over and over some more . . . the way to "reverse course" is to step back and objectively look at why these men are "motivated" to do whatever it is they "do"
and, if you look closely . . . it is likely you may see that they don't believe they can hang with YOU at full strength
so they keep "watering you down"
so you don't recognize this "truth" . . . and, upon recognizing it, act on it !!
if this is where you are, or where you've "been too often"
you can change this -- but only (in my opinion) once you ACCEPT that the one who "isn't worthy"
. . . isn't YOU
