As the others say – you are not an idiot. If it was easy to avoid these men, this site wouldn’t exist. I consider myself very intelligent, however my last three relationships:

1) guy who’s going to leave his partner (except of course he doesn’t and strings me along for a very long time)

2) guy who likes to push and place hands on throat when arguing. Final straw – he punched me in the face when he was drunk

3) two weeks after number 2, my husband. Much more subtle this time – all emotional stuff. So many red flag, but I married him and had his baby.

Yeah, so I’m super intelligent (really, I am), but I keep very bad company.
