...that I'm a decent person.
Not perfect, by any stretch of the imagination. But I'm basically a good and kind person.
This is a huge problem.
Women do not want decent and kind. Women want dangerous and callous and unpredictable. Women want someone that needs fixing.
And, if they don't find a flaw right away, they'll poke and prod and dig until they do find something wrong.
The problem is, the problem is that the further they have to dig to find the problem, the harder it will be to fix.
And some things are beyond repair.
