August 26, at 3: There is a gap of ten plus years between when he states he played the field and found much as I had that many partners were not very skilled even if physically good looking and that those who were more satisfying usually had a level of empathic sensing that was not only physical but emotional and intellectual. He had more or less settled for his second wife due to having low expectations of marital bliss.
They were good enough companions and the sex was good enough. Things got stale after 12 years, but it was not terrible. She had PTSD from her childhood.
Why do I advocate such an extreme course of action? Well, for a start, to apologize, try to wheedle your way back into her affections or otherwise atone or ‘set things right’ is immediately to fall into her frame, and that is the very last thing you want to do.

Kathryn Patricelli, MA Becoming aware of the forms that abuse can take helps you to be better prepared to recognize such behavior as abusive. Once you are able to label abuse, you can begin to take steps necessary to stop it from happening or repeating. Verbal Abuse occurs when one person uses words and body language to inappropriately criticize another person. Verbal abuse often involves ‘putdowns’ and name-calling intended to make the victim feel they are not worthy of love or respect, and that they do not have ability or talent.
If the victim speaks up against these statements, they are often told that the criticisms were “just a joke”, and that it is their own problem that they do not find the joke funny. They may also be told that no abuse is happening; that it is “all in their head”. Verbal abuse is dangerous because it is often not easily recognized as abuse, and therefore it can go on for extended periods, causing severe damage to victim’s self-esteem and self-worth.
Damaged victims may fail to take advantage of opportunities that would enrich their lives because they come to believe they are not worthy of those opportunities. Psychological Abuse also known as mental abuse or emotional abuse occurs when one person controls information available to another person so as to manipulate that person’s sense of reality; what is acceptable and what is not acceptable.
For example, psychological abuse might occur when a pedophile tells a child victim that she caused the pedophile to abuse her because she is a ‘slut’ who ‘tempted’ the pedophile.

Some manipulators are highly skilled. As your strings are pulled this way and that, you do just what the puppet master wants you to do.

None of this gets you anywhere. You never feel sure of where you stand with your partner, which leaves you in a perpetual state of uncertainty and anxiety. You seem to be on the defensive an awful lot.
Signs You Might Be Dating A Psychopath

Patrick October 16, at 1: How can a person premeditate the killing of an innocent mother of 3 young children in first degree murder? Not only did I loose my daughter, but I lost my grandsons.

The tv room was taken over by my soon to be ex husband who has cancer. They have a bond. But for sanity reasons, I cannot remain in a loveless marriage of 20 years in different rooms and he shows no empathy to me in the loss of my daughter. I ask God, how am I standing???

There are several reasons why one would compulsively or deliberately lie.
One of which is having a low self-esteem. If you do not love yourself enough, then you can never love anyone else completely and selflessly. Having a low self-esteem can later on lead to compulsive lying. Take this as an example.

November 27, at 9: I appreciate the statement of your saying that you might be a high functioning sociopath. Attracted the wrong type I guess. He was controlling when we dated.

Do I Have a Narcissistic Mother? Check These 21 Signs To See If you Have a Narcissistic Mother
Everyone expects an introvert to be shy and reclusive. Even though we spend way more time introverting than following the crowd, people only see our outgoing side.
