Any kind of growth requires recognizing our fears and having the courage to both hold the fear and take action. Ty, acknowledging, in a most public way, your struggle to express emotions was an act of courage.
To G: Not only do you "sound" harsh, you are harsh to reduce someone to an "audio-digital little "robots" like yourself". Ty said, "The antidote in pickup is to cleverly avoid any sort of rejection by never showing any emotion. This works well in the club, but once you're trying to actually connect with someone it becomes an impediment." Sounds to me like Ty wants to be emotionally connected and seeking ways to develop and express this aspect of himself.
