Dating a sexually abused
A fear of men in general, depression, guilt, anxiety, lack of desire for sex, promiscuity. Do you mean denying that it occured, as if it never happened or not revealing it? And then when I finally put all the pieces together and approached the subject subtley, I was totally shut down.
I remember the first time we were together, she asked me to tell her I loved her even if I didn't mean it. Almost like she could justify what she was allowing me to do for her, as long as she thought "I loved her".
(She died before it was completed.) My current wife and I hosted an on-line "shelter" for victims of sexual abuse for several years.What are some of the signs that a women might exhibit that may serve to confirm that this type of event occurred in her life and how do you address it with her if they refuse to acknowledge the event ever occurred?
