Abusive Relationships/Hurt, confused,

Thanks Cathy. This is T again. This isn't a question, but just some comments about your answers.

I have studied Domestic Violence before and work with people, so understand the violence and dominant cycle, so became alerted to this, with this man, when the signs started to pop up.

I suspected that he had tried this with other women in the past, because he said that he had been with many many women before and had a quick response to everything I said.

Your comment about him finding women to sleep with - The last contact - I asked him if he was looking for sex and he said that I was being nasty. I know that I shouldn't have said that, but i was angry and blurted it out.

The thought of him playing games hadn't occurred to me, but now it all makes sense.

You mentioned that he may be playing a game with the last break up. I suspected that may have been the case as well

I'm just glad that you were able to confirm my suspicions of him.

Thank you very much for your kind words and reassurance.
