      I had a lovely afternoon kept it public. He was lovely I spent a lot of time trying to find red flags but couldn’t see any! He seemed so genuine. He has also been through dv, I have been able to check out his story infact he’s a family friend so I had been told some. It was such a positive although scarry experience.

      Well done. There are nice men out there. Just take it very slowly. It’s incredible how many people have been through DV. As a society we just don’t talk about it enough X

      He is a friend of a close relative of mine. Who had told me before he did about his ex. They work together and there had been an incident at work. So I know it is correct. And he does come across and genuine

      Glad you had a good time.

      Remember to value yourself above anything x*x

      Awww well done. I can’t wait to hear more about this. It’s so warming to see that there is potentially a happy ending out there. I hope you’ve found someone who truly values you for who you are x*x

      Ps I think the fact that your family know of this person too it adds a bit of weight to his story. I would speak to women’s aid about all the things to look out for so you feel comfortable in everything and believe that you are making the right choices for you x*x

      Hey! I saw your last post about being uncertain and nervous of this date. Well done you for going ahead! I’m so glad it was a positive experience for you. I understand the looking for flags and signs and it’s not a bad thing to do but remember going on a date doesn’t mean this is going to be your next relationship. What I’m trying to say is don’t over think it, enjoy it one step at a time and enjoy the good feelings it gives you to be out there again socialising!

      Well done you’ve done so well getting to where you are. The advice above is right just take it alow and at your pace and remember women’s aid are there to help you if you have any concerns. Remember that you left your abuser because you knew that there are really decent loving men our there. If you didn’t believe that and you thought all men were the same you would have stayed with him you didn’t you deserve bigger and better things I promise you xxxx
