I thought I would share my thoughts about dating after experiencing domestic violence.
If you want to catch up on my experience about Domestic Violence, see links at the end of this post to my previous posts over the years.
I've been single since 2017, but it's not because I'm afraid to have a relationship. I just haven't dated any guys that I want to be in a relationship with.
Maybe that sounds harsh, but it's honest. I think there some truth to the statement "You'll be alone for a while when you know your worth." I don't think the statement is fully true, but I notice that since I'm not going to put up with a man treating me any kind of way I have been single for quite some time. I'm not looking for perfection because no one is perfect, but I won't be mistreated. Please remember that emotional abuse is a form of domestic violence. I can't stress that enough.
I don't base my love life on the toxic experiences I've had in the past, but I do use those experiences on what to avoid. I do believe in love, but love is also respect.
