47 Former Players Reveal Exactly How One Special Girl Changed Them For Good

15. “I used to think being ‘a man’ meant not having any feelings, so I buried mine. That made ghosting women and treating them like crap pretty easy. But when I met the gorgeous brunette who would become my first long-term girlfriend, I immediately had all these feelings I couldn’t suppress. Around then, I realized that I knew nothing about women, and that I had a lot of work to do on myself. I started therapy and changed my outlook for good. I have a policy now that every single text gets answered. It’s about mutual respect.”

— Franklin, 28
