    A woman of understanding might blow up with sufficient reason saying and doing things to make a valid point but she always tries to get to the point of mutual understanding and respect. She is not spiteful and never seeks to destroy anyone, she knows her worth and doesn't need to fight for anyone's attention or affection, that's pointless. He said he'd made a mistake, she understood and although hurt she accepted it and was ready to move on with her life hoping for mutual respect so she didn't get the point of him trying to make her jealous or mocking her followed by them stalking and harassing her causing her distress. She doesn't bother anyone. He said repeatedly 'he has his own life' and 'a disease' that most men have. She understood, appreciated his honesty and respected his decision by leaving him alone. She therefore, for the life of her, cannot see the point of them monitoring every aspect of her life. What is the point of this? By your disrespect and utter disregard for her feelings you are trying to destroy her! You didn't want her, wasn't that the whole POINT of everything you said and did? She listened to you, respected and understood you even after you hurt her, did you do the same for her?
