Girls and guys whose parents are divorced, do you feel permanently emotionally or psychologically damaged by your parents' divorce? If so, in what ways?
As for me, I desperately want to love and to be loved, but at the same time I don't like opening up to people, especially girls. I find it difficult to trust people, and I'm paranoid about people's motivations. I'm 21 and I've only ever had casual sex, never real relationships. Also, I get angry when parents make their children suffer, and I feel real hatred towards divorced people who have kids. Obviously I don't know for sure what kind of guy I'd be if I hadn't had the experience. But I have a pretty clear memory and I do remember these feelings starting as a result of that experience. This was just before puberty for me, so perhaps that made the effect especially strong.
Also, girls, if a guy had these issues, would that still be a turn-off even if he really liked you and was trying to fix himself?
