> I kinda might not know what you mean by "Stockholm syndrome". Is that when you love someone who is bad for you so much, they seem good?

It refers to hostage situations in which hostages begin to identify more with their captors, to their own detriment. It sounds wierd but it happens...

> I hope this part doesn't make you feel weird. I only learned that you're a man in one of your more recent posts, and it means alot to me that your message is so kind. I'm not used to men saying generous things for no other reason than being nice. It is hard for me to comprehend. My T doesn't sound like you anymore. I won't get into it because it's over, but I've come to kinda fear all men. My last T, who I loved so much, decided that she would send me to a male T to get me used to being around not only females anymore. I wish she had just kept me.

> Anyways, sorry if anything I said creeps you out, or makes you mad. I didn't mean for it to. Just wanted to say that seeing you say nice things like the women makes me a little relieved, or hopeful, or something. (not that you're like a women ... I hope this isn't coming out all wrong. If it did, I never meant to offend you. I hope you know what I mean)

Why should what you wrote creep me out? I'm glad to give you hope and temper your fears. There are plenty of other "nice guys" around on Babble (as well as "real life") but a certain wariness is always prudent. Anyway, I take your comments as a compliment and thank you for your kind words!
