What are your deal breakers in a relationship?
There will be no abuse in this relationship. Don't you dare lay a hand on me and don't think that you're smart enough to lay some mental abuse on me. I've been there and I've done that so I know what to look out for.
And for those of you who look down your noses as women in abusive relationships asking "Why doesn't she just leave?", stop it. Unless you're in her shoes, you have nothing to say. If she survives the relationship, she'll be 1000 times stronger than she was when she went into it. I'm not condoning absuive relationships by any means and please, if you are a witness to abuse, step up (but carefully) and say something, preferably to her as not to anger him more, but don't just stand by and watch it happen.
I have never thanked you because you were not worthy of thanks and I only thank you now, RMS, because you showed me what not to allow myself to get into. You're everything that every woman should avoid and you should probably get some psychological attention.
Women, stand tall and let no man (or woman) tell you that you are less than a person. Let no one lay a hand upon you in anger for that is not their place. Only when you are complete in yourself and love yourself will a partner arise for you who will treat you with the love and respect that you deserve.
I speak from experience.
