It certainly is normal and why would you have any good feelings towards a person that has constantly belittled you, put you down, made you doubt who you are or perhaps hit you over and over again on different occasions. These people need help! I am so very proud of you for getting away from this guy. It took guts! Now, you have the opportunity to seek help for this abuse he bestowed upon you. You can go to a "Women's Center" and receive counselling or go to your local "Mental Health" and they will find you counselling. You have had too long with this abusive person and you need help getting to know who you are again, and learn tools so you will never put up with this behavior again or choose another abusive partner. You are going to feel an empty pit in your stomach, your heart and your soul. You have put a wall of protectiveness up around you and you won't trust any man for awhile. You may even feel you want to strike out at any man you are dating and thus, the cycle of abuse starts all over again. You start abusing yourself! All men are not bad people! If you at least join a group to help with your abuse issues you will eventually fill in those big holes inside of you and one day you'll start to feel like life is really worth living. You are going to meet some nice, kind guy that will treat you the way you deserve to be treated. Hang in there Marcy

You shouldn't use abusive words as they can offend or upset other people. You probably wouldn't like it much if someone used them towards you. You should respect other people's feelings.

He most likely respected her bravery and her attitude towards the future of her home plant despite it being almost completely destroyed. And there may be a connection between his forgotten feelings for Maria and a newfound relationship with Molly.

Attraction to others is very normal in a healthy relationship. It only becomes a problem if there is an issue with trust or if you decide to act on these feelings.

if your girlfriend is getting abusive. then just end the relationship; because once a person starts to be abusive towards their significant other than they are not going to stop. It may be because she likes the feeling of power that she gets from hitting you or that she comes from an angry backround. Either way it is best to just stay away from her until she stops being abusive.

Gifts from the opposite sex can have many meanings. It is dependent on your relationship and the other person's feelings towards the gift recipient, as well as their feelings behind their gift.

To know if a relationship is merely friendship or true love involves you looking at how the other person views the relationship. Does his/ her pupils widen when you are around them? Do your conversations sometimes drift towards feelings towards each other?

It basically means that her feelings have changed towards your relationship and may not want to be with you anymore.

You be as supportive as possible. If the relationship ends, then confess your feelings towards the boy.

There is no easy way with the exception of being blunt about it. If the person you are leaving is a good person then talk to them on a one-to-one and express your feelings and be kind as you can. If the person has an abusive manner towards you or cheats on you then you owe them no explanation and just walk away. Don't answer the phone or email messages or IM.

Supposedly he was very abusive towards his wife and towards his children.

User Avatar

No but he was abusive towards her

User Avatar

That would depend on if you want to act on those feelings and especially how you feel towards your girlfriend. If you are not sure and confused of your feelings the best thing you could do is to let your girlfriend go and take time for yourself to sort your feelings out as you cannot be in a committed relationship while having feelings outside it. Don't jump right into another relationship especially when your not sure where all your feelings ly.

Well talk to him about it. Ask him if he still has more feelings towards his ex then you. You don't want to be in a relationship where your boyfriend has feeling for another woman. Maybe you'll find out if he truly has the feeling towards you or if hes just using you to fill in the gap of his ex.

With time. You will never be able to erase feelings towards someone. But to actually accept those feelings you can move on

User Avatar

Answer If he still has feelings for his ex-wife and shows no feelings towards you I think I would get out of that situation. You are setting yourself up to be hurt if you continue in the relationship. You deserve someone who is capable of caring for you and SHOWING it. As long as he still cares for his ex-wife he will be emotionally unavailable for someone else. That could be a very empty and hurtful relationship for you.

If you feel indifferent towards someone I think it would be difficult to have any kind of relationship with that person. Indifferent simply means that you do not care and in order to have any kind of friendship or relationship with someone you must have some kind of feelings or there can be no relationship.

If you are sure about sincerity of your feelings and his feelings towards you go ahead with it.

At first, Sal misunderstands who Mrs. Cadaver is. She thinks she might be a love interest of her father's, and has very hard feelings towards her. She is jealous, and almost willing to believe stories that she might be a killer. Later, when she found out who she really was, her feelings towards her softened, and she was grateful for a relationship with her.
