Predatorial in what direction? I've wanted to learn AT for a while. Tried it once and stopped mostly for lack of someone to practise with. Recently started again after several months urging from a friend who wanted me as a practice partner. She has since warned me about several women who will "make offers" for me to be their practice partner. I don't know if there is any truth in this (nobody has yet made me an offer). But given the numbers of men and women I see, I can believe the women might be predatorial.
