    Lovers to Strangers

    Because He Might Kill Me

    That is why I am afraid of MY ex. I met this guy during my first year in community college and fell hard for him, even though he was 12 years older than me. I ended up moving in with him and spent four years of my life being his girlfriend. It was great for a while but he...

    Just Left And Scared...

    Two days ago I left the apartment that I shared with my partner without telling him my plans, I had told him a few months previously that I no longer wanted to live with him (we had been living together for a year) but he couldn't accept that I wanted to go. We get on well but...

    Scared

    I think it runs on fear. The whole thing. His whole modus operandi is getting what he wants through making people fearful of him. As I type this, I am afraid. I made a huge mistake and got involved with someone that I should never have got involved with. EVER. I used to be such...

    What Do I Do??

    I can never seem to find a good man ever since I lost my first husband.  To start my story I got married young, and had two children. I was so happy for so long and then got bored taking my husband for granted and ended up cheating. After my divorce I got involved with mean men...

    Crazy Meets Psychotic

    The relationship was my own fault -- I moved to a small town without a strong support network, let down any good judgement and allowed my vulnerabilities and mental illness to direct my poor choices, and succumbed to the flattery of a man who presented a very charming, smart side...

    3 Years Later, And I Still Have Nightmares

    He never raised a hand to me. Never physically hurt me. If anything he was as honest as a psychopath can get I guess. I still remember when I met him. He was charming, charismatic, and I just felt drawn to him. I didn't know anything about him. I asked one of my friends who...

    Mostly I'm Afraid of Myself With Him

      I'm afraid that if he comes back here, apologizes & says he's changed.... I'll take him back. I'm afraid that he's planning this & waiting until I am so lonely, so scared, so utterly alone, that I'll take him back no questions asked. That I'll assume he's the best...

    He Scares The Hell Out Of Me

    When I was 14 I dated a guy who seemed to be really nice. After a few weeks he became obsessive. He would call me 15-20 times a day wanting to know where I was and who I was with and constantly telling me he loved me. It was creepy so I broke it off. He wrote me love letters...

    My Ex

    It was about six years ago. Really, I got off pretty easy compared to what a lot of women go through. I know he hit me some, but I was never injured. I don't even really remember it. There was a friend who saw it, and was always trying to get me away, but I wouldn't listen. She's...
