That means telling the stories of men who have been responsible for vicious, often unforgivable acts.

Recent over-thinking has been centered around both the difficulties and rewards of dating in our label-happy, technology-obsessed generation. I often wonder what happened to old-fashioned dating — dating in the sense of being able to spend time with a person but not be “exclusive,” not be “complicated,” not be “together,” but to just be in one another’s company.

We all need to get real with ourselves about what we actually need and desire from relationships. Technology has stunted our communication patterns, mixed up messages, and convoluted interpersonal signals. Most rely heavily on text exchanges that fail to convey the appropriate nuance; we frequently start relationships this way, meeting on app interfaces where all you can do is text. I find there are two major camps: Lax communicators are vague. Their intentions are often veiled.
They live in the here and now, and often their partner might view their lack of consistency as cold and callous. They will run hot and cold to make a point. They live in nuance, often read between the lines and convey hidden meanings their partner is magically supposed to understand.

A behavior has adaptive logic if it tends to increase the number of offspring that an individual contributes to the next and following generations. If such a behavior is even partly genetically determined, it will tend to become widespread in the population.
