Thank god he did! Could've been your MOM!!! Holy crap...
Hahahahahah at least I'd be super hot!
But no one could stand talking to you or having sex with you. Give me my average/cute looks anyday and my good brain.

I've been the unhappy person though! Oddly enough, now that I got out, I have a much better and more positive outlook on life.It might be that I'm just not meant for relationships. OR it might have just been the totally wrong person for me.
Probably more than likely.. totally wrong person for you.
I think so too.
Similar story. He too had serious reasons to be depressed but never trusted therapy. As he's gotten older, I think most of that has been resolved, my son tells me. But during the time we were together, wow. Distressing.
@Screenwriter I guess he is more relaxed on his own. He only has himself to look after and a male family member part time shares his apartment so he has some company. Unfortunately for him his family lives in Iraq so life isn't getting any better.
If you're still friendly with him, encourage him to get support, therapy. That can cut his internal distress. He can't be in Iraq. I'm sure at one time his family could've left. There's simply nothing he could do.
@Screenwriter I'm not close enough to give him advice about treatment. I offered to pay for it when I had some extra money even after we separated. One of the reasons why our marriage couldn't work was he didn't want to hear me tell him that he needed to get help.
Some people think needing help deminises masculinity: makes them weak. If he had those issues, he wouldn't like that. Both sexes need help. It's about being happy in the long run. Too bad for him. Good for you.
This was equal parts cute and annoying. I want to pinch your cheeks off lol
@DorkVader: I know it might come across as cocky to some, but its true. Even my ex who inhabits these parts sometimes will tell you that (and if she doesn't, there's ample evidence).
I don't doubt your abilities. I'm a very upbeat person and I usually drag people up with me. But I'm also a very depressed person, and I know sometimes I wouldn't want to deal with someone like me. So i liked your answer and hated it at the same time. Sorry!
@DorkVader: No problem, and I agree you're uplifting. Find a guy who is also great at spreading positivity and you'll be fine.
Awww thanks! 🥰
wow you didn't leave me on read... ha ha ha
