Madeline,
My gut told me what I was dealing with two months into the relationship. Yours and “Me”s” observations are very thought provoking. It IS how we are chemically “wired”. As “Me” said, we empaths succumb to the dopamine in our brain. I know my guy was bad for me but I thought I could handle it. I made a decision based on how I’m wired to stay in the relationship…thought I could handle it. He made me feel so good about myself when I was with him I felt it was worth the risk. It was nice to be validated by another man. Fortunately I have enough self confidence that I am not totally crushed as many are on this site. I’m disappointed in him and in myself for trusting, but I’m going to be fine.
