    I know EXACTLY how you feel, Dolores! That is what wakes me up in the middle of the night…”Why am I here? Why am I choosing to be with this man?” It’s funny how when i find myself in a relationship, I lose myself. I lost myself with this man. Not good. I know who I am. Why aren’t I acting like ME? I recently decided to meet myself, my true se…[Read more]

  • Shamrock, We are in the “pink cloud” phase of this mess. I’ve found out the truth. It’s been two months now. He’s said he doesn’t want that lifestyle anymore and he wants to change, saying he wants a real & lasting life with me. He’s says he’s tired of having nightmares, tired of this life, tired of the lifestyle.
    I have access to his phone, can…[Read more]

    If he touches you in anger once, he will do it again. If he puts his hands on you, the next time will be worse and worse. Make a plan to leave safely. Put money aside. Then tell others of your plan to enlist help. Get out as soon as you can. Get a restraining order. Leave with police escort if possible. This is what I did.

  • “…But for ev’ry time that we spent laughin’
    There were two times that I cried
    And you were tryin’ to make me your martyr
    And that’s the one thing I just couldn’t do
    ‘Cause baby, I can’t hang upon no lover’s cross for you…”

    How do you deal with it when you can sense your partner is gearing up to act out?

    I discovered I had texted my man “I love you” right before he met up and slept with some loser on Tinder.

    I feel this way too. It’s very isolating. I don’t want to share this with even my closest friends for fear it will totally and utterly embarrass me. What could I be doing with a sex addict boyfriend? Why would I put myself in for this? I don’t trust my own judgement either.

  • I’m new to all of this so forgive my ignorance…can he be helped? Treated? Is their hope? Obviously my man has got a huge problem but he can’t find help? Is he doomed to hurt every female for the rest of his life, living with only the shadow of real intimacy? How could a person live like this, going from person to person for sex alone and the vag…[Read more]

    I’m new to this site. I can’t believe I’ve found myself here. It’s frightening to even type anything in here because then I’m admitting to being in such a twisted, screwed up relationship. I guess the most painful aspect of this whole situation is how deeply I love this man and how hurtful it’s been to discover he can’t possibly feel the same way.…[Read more]
