Hi everyone. I'm a 28 year old guy who was sexually abused by 2 of my older brothers when I was about 6-9 years old. I'm in therapy and a support group.
I've never dated very much, and I want to start dating more. But I was wondering what you might think of dating someone with my background.
I'm not worried about anyone judging me, because I know the abuse wasn't my fault. But sometimes I worry that my baggage might be too much for some people to want to deal with in a relationship.
I don't have a lot of physical experience with girls, and I would need to move the relationship kind of slow.
Thanks a lot for any answers or feedback.

I wouldn't mind. I've never been abused or anything, but I've never been physical with a guy outside of dancing at homecoming and prom when I was in high school, and two people in a relationship should be able to depend on each other and mend each other's wounds. Any girl who "doesn't want to deal with your baggage" is not right for you. I know a lot of girls who would date someone regardless of weather or not they were sexually abused.1
