I had a relationship with someone who really wasn't invested in it working. I, however, was. Having come to the conclusion that it was irretrievably broken I made myself a promise that I wouldn't put myself in that situation again. It caused me untold issues not only with my general mental health but with my ptsd as well. I waited some time before I decided to return to the dating pool. And all I did was dip my toe in. But then I met someone who seemed to be all the things the other boyfriend wasn't. Polar opposite. Or so I thought. His attributes are all positive.......at first. As time wore on, they started to subtly change. He became clingy and demanding to know everything I was doing under the pretense of "watching out for me and taking care of me". I don't need a babysitter. And I don't need someone who gets angry if I don't tell them everything.I'm tired of having my ptsd activated and then I'm the one who has to deal with it all. Why do I keep striking out? What is wrong with me? It's not like I look for these types of guys or am I subconsciously doing this to myself? Trying to discover if it's me or them is driving me nuts. I'm ready to quit dating. It's just not worth the aggravation and turmoil in my life. Positive comments and advice appreciated.
