Dating domestic violence survivor

They say it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

Hmmm, makes me wonder if I have I ever really been in love?

What I remember most are the sick feelings in my stomach wondering when my husband would come home, who he was with, how much money he spent that we didn’t have, if he was still angry… I can tell you one thing for sure…if it’s real love, there shouldn’t be fear. One should not feel the need to walk on eggshells or hide from the truth of what happens behind closed doors.

Anyway, how do two people know when they are in love? I see my parents and think what they have is real love, but I have yet to find it.

Sure my parents bicker, get upset, and time and again hurt each other’s feelings, but there is no jealousy, rage, control or resentment in their relationship.

They respect each other enough to talk things through.

They are sincere when they apologize to each other.

They live their lives for each other and not for anyone or anything else.My parent’s met on a blind date back in the days when relationships were respected and courtship was something to be cherished.My Aunt arranged a meeting for them one of the nights my Mom and she played bingo.The moment my Dad saw my Mom, he fell absolutely head over heals for her. They dated for a while and always accompanied by my uncle.You see, back then, when a man courted a woman, they had to be escorted.My parents both came from large families and they too wanted to have a big family.
