  • I was with an angry, alcoholic with sociopath tendencies for 21 years but made every excuse in the book for him. I am away now and just beginning the healing process. Has anyone else dealt with this? I wish I would have recognised this behaviour when i first met him it would have saved myself and my children years of grief and pain. I hope i don't have to be alone forever but i'm afraid I may...

    What happened?

    So here's a scenario: a man and a woman are having casual sex. He starts getting rough with her and begins to hurt her. She begins to feel uncomfortable about the whole thing. He starts doing something to her to which she clearly and audibly responds: "No, not that" He ignores what she had just said and forces it on her anyway. The way she is positioned, she can't get away from him, she's...

He's my only friend where I live, I relocated for my job and he moved in with me a year after that. He's the person I vent to when I've had a horrible day at work, he cooks for me a...
  • Some friends and family think my standards are too high. I actually think they're perfect. I spent years with incredibly low standards . And by years I literally mean a year and 1/2 waiting for the moment to get the title of girlfriend from a man . Spent four months with a guy who insisted he didn't want a relationship but as soon as I moved out of the state, within weeks he had a girlfriend....

    I need your support right now

    Tonight we had another fight because he feels that I don't care about him!. Last year he gave me a dinner reservation for 2 only and it will expire shortly... However I don't like my daughter being with a babysitter and I guess I don't like being alone with him since we argue a lot so therefore I didn't do anything about it! I told him that I did not like the way he talks to me about it because...
