  1. welcome. I am new here also and it feels like a safe place and everyone is very supportive.
  2. Its wonderful to have a male opinion. My ex made me feel like all men are just like him. I learned how much I was manipulated once I was out of the relationship. I often get angry that I didn't figure that out sooner. I stayed in the relationship far too long and hate that I let him get away with so much.
