How long did it take you?

I was in one for four years. It took me four years to leave. But I’ve been gone for 10 years now. He’s still part of my life since we have a child. And he still will say or do things to try and mess with my mind. Somedays he will get in my head, but most of the time now I just ignore him.
It took me five years after leaving to even want to date again. I went to therapy for years to get myself back together. I’ve dated two men seriously since then and been on a lot of dates. But I don’t trust my own judgement and I’ve never met anyone who can get past the walls I have, or cares enough to make the effort.
The one thing my ex said that turned out to be true... there is no one else willing to put up with me :(0
I know you said abused girls only.
Ladies don't let a man hit you. Everything you own is a weapon lams chairs tables pans. Broom mop if he hits you once he will do it again1
About 5 years ago, I was sexually abused by my ex. And, I didn't realize because I was quite young and immature. It was my first relationship, and I wanted to please the guy. But, even after I said stop, or no, he kept going.
Anyways, I later found out that he was 31 y/o and I was 16. He has lied to me about his age. And that was a breaking point for reconsidering he told me otherwise. And it was believe-able because he looked to be able 23 y/o.
I called the cops and he was arrested. He is now know to be a pedophile.0
It's been 8 years and I'm still not over it. I still cry and have flashbacks and panic attacks from it. I still ask myself why he treated me how he did, why his friends stayed quiet, why he still tries to contact me like everything is ok...1
I was in the relationship for a year. It took me a year to date again. It took years to recover mentally.1
I got brave and my kids and I moved into our own place. Took me about 3 years to stop having nightmares about him, and to stop being so scared to answer the phone and door.1
I had flashbacks for about 6 or 7 years.0
I called the police and had a restraining order placed on him2
I'm still not completely over yet. One year has passed since our breakup.
It's true that he was abusive, but it's also true that he was my first boyfriend and I was madly in love with him.0
It took ages for my confidence to get back up.0
3 years later and I can still hear his voice insulting me in my head impacting my judgements. Im doing well in another relationship but I don't know if you ever actually get over an abusive relationship. I think a water mark will always be there from it.0
I left my 7 year abusive relationship in May. Now I just can't seem to get into the idea of dating anyone. Like I want to, but I require so much alone time that makes it difficult. I just want to be alone now.2
My ex boyfriend and l dated a year and a half. We would break up then and there. When we got back together. We only dated for about 4 months after he tried to aggressively force me to be sexual with him. And after all that bullshit. I got over him like a year later.0
he went to university so i didn't have to see his selfish narcissistic ass1
