Silver, i think there are many men like you who just want their SO to be safe.
but i also think there are a lot of men that fit Bonnie's description as well. for so men its a power trip but not in a healthy "i want you to be safe and powerful love of my life way" but in a "i know best and want you to do it my way and any other way is wrong" type of mentality.
Silver, i don't think you ever could wear out your welcome here! you provide valuble insight and info w/o having a "dude with 'tude" presentation.
i like the way you think and i also sense that while you present the info to a GF, you also don't force it on her.
again, your support for this forum is appreciated!
