I don’t know why this needs to be said, but people rarely leave relationships because of something they themselves did. This was not an article about my foibles (I’ve written those elsewhere), and that’s clearly stated from the title. This is an article on how men, again and again, fail their partners by not being present.

You took this exactly how I told the reader NOT to when I mentioned that sometimes the truth hurts. It takes two people to maintain and/or fix a relationship, but only one has to ruin it.

Instead of griping that this article doesn’t do what I never said it was going to, you should just take what you like and leave the rest.
