or maybe somerandomguy, it didn't work out due to her insecurity and hypervigilence
you might not. others who have but shut down by their partner with ptsd may well understand.You've put the lie to your thread title by quoting private texts to you directly here, which I'm pretty sure is against the rules.
I'm sorry it didn't work out. But we don't need to see your private messages.
I think there is a very clear pattern in your relationships and why they tend to spectacularly go south. I’m not saying your ex is a saint, rather I’m saying that you should examine your own behavior. I think it’s quite telling that you gave up your own business for a woman.....please learn to put yourself first. I think you perhaps play the white knight and then don’t understand why things always go south.
Individuals have an expectation of privacy in their direct communications with other individuals. Because of that, we discourage direct quoting of someone else's texts or emails. Paraphrasing is always fine.
Posts have been edited to remove those direct quotes.
@dcb2410, you aren't the first member to not anticipate this guideline of ours. If you'd like to replace the content with paraphrasing, just let us know. But my advice would be, try and give yourself some time away from all of it. And you're welcome to return to the site, if it would be useful for you.
FWIW, I didn't think you were looking for any kind of points. I understand why you quoted them, and simply wanted you to understand why they were removed, that's all.The sudden shut down given the thousands of messages of love hurts. Simple as that. Not trying to get brownie points.

You're welcome to return, or not - it's completely your call. I do hope you seek out some IRL support either way; talking with someone can help relieve some of the pain. But it'll take some time.
