It also says something about the person I'm dating. If IV were to hook up with some jerk who I not only don't get along with but he seems to always be stirring up shit and causing drama in my surroundings - what would that say about IV? Anyone who welcomes or even endures that kind of broken dynamic is probably not going to be a healthy partner for me for very long. I've had those gross and dramatic relationships and I just don't have room in my life for it anymore.

So my saying "No thanks, I'll pass" on a relationship with someone who has a toxic partner is not only to avoid the drama myself.. but to avoid dating someone who thinks that kind of drama is reasonable.
Me: male, 43, straight, non-hierarchical, independent
