    You were not stupid crystal. They are so good at what they do and so convincing. We all thought that ours was wonderful until we find out all the lies and bullshit. They are the losers in the end as they are not capable of love. They are not worth the heartache and I wonder now, how I managed to stay with mine for so long..

    Stupid you are not :Not Worthy: Its because we cant comprehend any body that behaves like they do ... Love is the best feeling in the world and we have it and they dont .I will always chose love and humanity ,over money and gadgets .If it didnt hurt ,we would be like them ,if we didnt cry and feel pain ,we would be like them .Your compassion shows with your comments and its not stupidity ,your a brave one ,thats for sure xxxx

    Me too.. I made excuses all the time, but you get worn out from the constant giving in thinking it will get better. They are treated like little princes by their mothers and sisters, and expect you to do the same. This makes them spoilt little bastards who only think about themselves. At least now we have peace of mind crystal ;)

    After attending a discussion group of Feminist Women`s Open Voice about cross cultural relationships, it was suggested that pre-emptive awareness groups should be advertised by local women`s groups on FB etc about cross cultural relationships, culture and traditions in various countries. Please voice your interest at any similiar womens groups in your local vicinty. For the Notts /Derby area this will be at Derby Womens Centre or contact Vox Feminarium on FB.....Let`s all attempt to prevent first of all ! Spread the word.....

    Very sad to here. I was feeling very bad today, and for a long time the rat experience have made me not wanting to live, but I will survive some how. Its totally destroyed any trust I had in life/humanity/men, and also the trust I had in my own ability to judge and feel. Just feeling sad that persons with no feeling or consioussness can do this and not care ...xxxxxxx

    Hi ExN,

    Your feelings are normal because you DO have a conscience and capability to truly love another..............The rat does NOT have this capability, so in this we must pity him/her...

    You have lost trust in humanity for now......but remember the majority of humankind is NOT like the rats we are dealing with here on this site ....Trust and faith in humanity will take time to restore, but gradually you will see it return to you...

    Your judement is NOT impaired, you encountered an alien culture, another human with no thought pattern recognisable to you.....Once we realise that it is not at fault then the healing is easier...

    Take all the time you need to repair yourself, look after YOU....there will be good days and there will be bad days, ride out the storm, cos you will come out the other side..

    Im sending you a hug xx

    ExN, just be gentle to yourself, after all we are just human and so we do make mistakes in life. And we learn a lot of our mistakes!
    Forgive yourself for this mistake, find closure of this story only in yourself (the rat won't help you with that either) and go on with your life. YOU and YOU ALONE are the most important person in your life, nobody else and you are so strong that you don't need any looser taking energy out of your life! Save all your energy for YOURSELF!
    Don't feel sad about the past, that's of no use. Look to the future, it's yours!

    ExN, you will survive and every day you will feel a little less bad than the day before - just think of it like that, one day at a time.
    One of the hardest parts of it all for me is the knowledge that my rat continues on as if nothing as happened. His life is unaffected by his actions. What purpose would be served by me not living except to hurt and ruin the lives of the people who actually love and care for me. It certainly would have no impact on the rat. He wouldn't shed any tears.
    We can hold our heads up high in the knowledge that we did nothing wrong except fall in love with the wrong person. At least we can feel.
    hugs xxx

    I am really sorry to hear about both these stories. Sorry for the loss of your friend. I think we are all impacted in different ways,and it can take certain events to trigger this response in our lives. The feelings of pain,loss,helplessness are so great, and some people end up feeling they can't cope. For whatever reason some of us feel life is not worth living, that it would be a relief to be dead. I am a strong believer, in when someone has decided to take their life, there is nothing anyone can do to prevent it. I have not lost anyone to suicide yet, but have worked with people who are suicidal, so understand how they get there.

    Good book to read on suicide

    We are here for you. Most of us have been through a lot worse than you and are still going through it. I have been for 4 years and hopefully, it will come to an end soon. Cant seem to get on with my life until then.

    I had counselling but found that help on TLR was much better for me. When this happens to you, you need to unburden yourself and because you are talking to a virtual person you can be very open and let rip.

    Feeling that you are boring them and they don't really want to hear your moans is another thing. Only those who have been through these situations truly know how you are feeling.

    You are already half way there. You are talking a lot of sense about cutting contact altogether. Very good because if you don't, they will wriggle back into your affections and start the hurt cycle all over again. Cutting contact will ease the pain over time. Always remember all the things you hate about him and his character when any signs of weakening start to come into your mind.

    Exactly how I feel. Unfortunately, some women are not strong enough to fight but we who are, are fighting for those women.

    For me, it was revenge, making him suffer and then justice. I want him to lose all he worked so hard to take from me. We all deal with our hurt differently and whatever makes you feel better, I am for it.

    You were not stupid. You were kind and believed he was too. He fooled you but you will get the last laugh on him. I feel he has made a mistake leaving the country and also he started showing his true colours before he got his ILR. The government need to look at cases who got their ILR by deception, thousands of people out there suffering after being fooled.

    For those who have too much pain they feel they are weakened to the point they can't cope any more (and over a long while it can be difficult to bear much pain, so we all get weakened by it in the end), consider taking St. John's Wort. It is a herb that has a great natural antidepressant effect and work wonders when your thoughts go in circles and you are not yourself and can't control how you feel any more and just want out no matter what. This herb will get you up from the bottom and lift you up to the surface without the side effects of "usual" drugs. And if you are "ok", you will not even notice the effect and believe it was nothing (so don't take it if you are unsure). But those who know they need more help, they will know, and notice and will be saved.

    PM me if you want to know a reliable place where to get it online.
