We began seeing each other more regularly at his friend’s apartment - or so I thought. Twice every week we would meet and go have sex, cuddle, talk, leave and go grab a coffee and then go on our ways. I started seeing some red flags when we went to Starbucks.

I met my soon to be ex-husband when I was 23 he was sweet and kind and everything I ever wanted in a man, he used the words I wanted and needed to hear like beautiful not hot. He painted a picture of our future together that would fit every woman’s dream of a little house with a white picket fence. Not one of pain and hurt and distrust.

I hope when you go to pack your things, he doesn't drag you into the house and force you to get undressed.

I was in a relationship with a guy for 3 years. The first year was amazing. The second year thing began to change. Every so often he would comment on how I looked (not in a good way) and the genuine way I was - this soon turned to everyday. He called me fat,

He started taking his clothes off, right down to his boxers...
