“Make myself comfortable. What does that mean? Does she want me to take my clothes off? Is she taking her clothes off? What if I take my clothes off and she still has hers on? Then I really look like an idiot. She could get offended and leave. So maybe I should leave them on, but what then if she takes her off? Then she'll feel humiliated. ‘Make yourself comfortable.’ I got this unbelievable woman and this ‘comfortable’ thing can ruin me. I got it! I take my shoes off and sit on the bed. There, that's comfortable. She can't accuse me being uncomfortable.”
