Thank you! Powerful statement. Mine married me and then didn’t want to fuck anymore. It was over. Looking back I can see the way he manipulated my feelings to get what he wanted — a stable easy life from which he could pursue other women.
Thank you for being clear about this. I now am watching for these kinds of mixed messages. Relationships all grow in a similar fashion. If it seems to fast for sentimental language than it’s seduction and manipulation. A duck is a duck is a duck. Even if it says it’s a cat? It’s a duck.
