      Hi ladies. I’ve started dating again. I’m just going slow, taking my time, not rushing into anything & making sure I’m listening to my gut and trusting myself. Went on a wonderful date yesterday with someone who has been incredibly kind & gentle to me. We kissed & it felt really nice & sweet and they didn’t at all pressure me to do anything beyond that. I’m just not in a space where Im ready for more & they’ve been really understanding of that. We had a great conversation and we’ve actually been getting to know each other for a few months now. I felt safe around them and I’m looking forward to seeing them again. Not looking to rush into anything and definitely keeping my eyes open for any red flags, but it felt really really great to be out with someone who has just been consistently kind & good to me. It’s a level of care and concern that I never experienced with my ex. My date tries to find small ways to make my life easier & it’s been really so sweet. Just a happy moment I wanted to share. I’m not sure where things will end up but for now I’m just enjoying myself. There is life after abuse ❤️. Love you ladies ❤️

      Love this sms – enjoy!! I found the contrast from what I had endured to caring men very emotional and devastating to realise what I had put up for so long. Dating had been fun – but not going to settle. I’ve got this – they need to add short and long term. Have fun x

      Great you are dating and keeping eyes out for red flags there.

      Glad you are taking it slow. After this it’s very difficult to do.
