      So I left my ex as you know and swore I’d never be in another relationship. But I have started talking to someone,what am I doing I am so worried. He is known by my family and has been in an abusive relationship but how do I know he won’t be like my ex soon so scarred.

      Dear Inneedofsomepeace, i’m not 100% familiar with your background but you sound so nervous, too nervous to be ready to get involved with someone. I heard from Womens Aid that it is a good idea to be single for 2 years before you start dating again after your abusive relationship, have you been apart from your ex very long? Your anxiety says to me that your not ready to start dating. It might help you to read some posts on here today started by Million Pieces where we were talking about women getting together with men just because they felt they needed a man and couldn’t function properly without one. Most of the time they entered into unsuitable relationships because of this and would settle for someone who liked them or showed interest without really thinking what they like about the man. X*X
