I believe manipulation is wrong. I believe hero worship is wrong. I believe forcing someone through intimidation, physical force, and/or playing their insecurities to be wrong.

But in another world, if people were open and it could be known by parents and all on the up n up, I think it’s POSSIBLE to work.

When I was 15, I finagled with a 23 year old and a 28 year old. At the time I thought the 23 year old was so much older. But now I see a 23 year old male is a lost child inside and not much different than I was at 15. I did give him a lot of power but he didn’t know that. He had his own insecurities going on.
