Joy When It Hurts

Emotional Modesty

What does it even mean to be emotionally modest? Have you ever been offended or hurt because you felt misled in a friendship with a woman?

Out of your emotions do you seek to emotionally seduce the opposite sex? Emotional modesty is as much as an issue for men as it is for women.
