An Open Letter to the Man Who Criticized Me on a First Date
Carrie Allie

I applaud your ability to keep your presence of mind on the date. He sounds like he acted like a total jerk (intentionally or unintentionally, doesn’t matter), but you didn’t let it erode your sense of self.

Not only did you stick to your guns, but you practiced what you preach: you gave him the same acceptance that you give yourself, even though you didn’t share the same POV.

Good for you!
