I noticed it first in the car with an old boyfriend.
Someone cut him off.
Suddenly, his entire energy changed. The car became warmer. He swore and yelled, accessing rage with an ease that suggested it was never that far from the surface.
I wasn’t frightened, necessarily. I was uncomfortable. And I recognised that this was a behaviour I found supremely unattractive.
Since, I’ve dated many men who regularly lost their temper.
There’s something about watching someone who has completely lost control, behaving like a disgruntled child unable to process complex emotion, that makes you want to walk in the other direction.
Similar to sneezing far too loudly as I’m drifting off to sleep, wearing too much cheap body spray and liking 47 pictures of Instagram models everyday, anger, I find, is a real turn off.
Yeah. You probably had to be there.
Clare and Jessie Stephens debrief on the (gross) physical fight that took place this week on The Bachelorette. Post continues.
The point is, Paddy ended up with a ripped shirt, staring at Bill with crazed intensity – the kind a man gets right before he kicks someone outside a nightclub at 2am.
As the fight progressed, Osher yelled out “cut it out,” worried that the men were going to seriously hurt each other.
