Not to mention, the attraction is completely equal on both our parts. We’ve texted every day since we met, and even though we live 45 minutes away from each other, he still makes time to come see me...

I could go on about all the details of his controlling, manipulative, often times verbally abusive behavior, but I just want to give some background...

She had started some therapy due to becoming physically ill before some meetings, even if she knew the attendees. Since January, she has taken about 30...
