Actually, I do sob at how much these women pay for a dress they'll wear once.

Can't we have one year when only bad people die?

Not sure what to do with this situation. My current partner just confessed that they were raped a few years ago. This was during our last intimate encounter, and as they cried my prying eye just had to know why this was since it was the third time it had happened. We've talked about it, and decided that all the future intimate moments will only happen on their grounds, and not mine - taking it one step at a time. Now that valentines day is approaching I'm getting paranoid. What should I do? Should I try to involve professional help into the mix (they don't want to explore that route), give support where needed, or just wait it out? I'd rather not see the tears again...

Jesus. I can only hope relations between you find a way of working out, but how, previously, was sex broached on your part?

I mean, isn't sex between partners at the behest of both partners, and not one or the other, like some sort of transaction?

(I'm not trying to be horrible or anything - I just don't get it).

Whether they want professional help or not, they need it. This is not just for the good of the relationship but for the good of the person. In fact getting a person that is that damaged the help they need could very well lead to the end of the relationship. You can't fix this and while it is theoretically possible that the person in question could fix it on their own, it isn't likely and it will take FOREVER.



I wanna make a bad joke but it is so rude. Sad

Hypnotherapy is whack. Hypnotoadtherapy is... all hail the hypnotoad.

Seriously, though... rape victims often develop trust issues, which makes any kind of coercion, even to get them therapy they need, kind of like stepping on someone's broken leg. Very likely to be counterproductive. Not just to the personal relationship, but to the therapeutic alliance that's essential for therapy to work.

You know, just in case anyone though it was a good idea to drag rape victims to see therapists against their will.

Look at the dress she was wearing! She's was totally asking for therapy.

I'm a bad person.

I think one of the first times I hung around you, you put on a dress. Well, a slip, as I recall.

I recall a bathing suit, but not a dress or slip.
