I had been serious with a guy for about a year and a half. Things in the relationship were terrible he was emotionally and physically abusive. Now I’m not an idiot, I tried to break it off for almost a year. I knew the relationship was bad for me. But, every time I tried to he would manipulate me back with various threats.

Well, one day I met this other brilliant guy, he immediately saw right through all the bullcrap, walls, and fake smiles. I quickly fell for him and his wonderful personality. It was my fault, we just clicked with each other and became very close friends, I kissed him whilst still being with the abusive jerk but despite everything my ex did to me I still felt bad. Eventually, I managed to break up with the ex – not through lack of trying!

I’m still with my SO, it has been 5 years now. I feel bad still, it wasn’t at all my SO fault. He was very innocent and was only trying to save me. —story_throwaway1928
