> It must be difficult to have so much in common after being in an abusive relationship for so long.
Yes, it is amazing to find someone I click with (and rare).
> What is interesting is that I was in Hawaii with him at the ACA conference,
Oh, did you go as a t or student?
I am a student and joined the ACA. My t said he saw me FIVE times, but didn't speak (stupid t rules, LOL).......he said he wanteed to make sure I was having a good time, etc...Yah, right.
but he introduced me as a mentor. He would introduce me and tell his friends he knew my dad, but when we danced it was obvious that there was chemistry. I was more anxious then he was. He is in solo practice,
So is "mine." Almost 30 years.
so it isn't like anyone would know he is my t. There is an age difference between us, but that is something I didn't mind. I always told him I had a thing for older men, and he would say it was a "daddy" protector thing!
> Why are all the good men taken or therapists?
I wish I knew, Morgan!
I fluctuate between loving and hating him. He just got his Ph.D. last week, and I brought a cake and had candles spelling out his name and the word, Ph.D.....He is so proud of me for starting school at 61! I submitted my paper on (verbal) abuse to the ACA, but it wasn't chosen (1 out of 1,000), so I wrote to the President; she agreed that my paper was SO valuable and wants to meet me at next year's convention (Charlotte, NC); I am the moderator of an abused survivors' group; one of my passions in life.
1 in 3 women are being abused; I've written 3 different papers.
Will you be attending next year's ACA convention?
