Dating women with baggage
I'm not telling you to stay with her and tough it out... I would go to great lengths to emphasize NOT to stay with her, if you can't accept her as an entire package.
I'm sure there is someone out there who can and will.
All too often, women want to know what they're doing wrong, when really it's that they're dating the wrong person! No "let's go to therapy," no "baby, I'll change," or, even worse, "you made me do that." The second it turns physically violent is the second you should move on.If you're asking yourself this, she probably does, plain and simple. If you don't believe me, then think of it this way: While you're trying to change Ms. Maybe, it'll work out for a few months, but meanwhile, your real Ms.Right may be getting swept up by someone who isn't wasting her time.I'm torn because I like her and I want to help her, but I also don't want to expose myself and end up hurt, or just end up being used as some kinda rebound shoulder to cry on guy. Quality in a sucessful relationship, would be if the partner was more interested in where you two as a couple were heading into the future, rather than being so wrapped up in what she had to go through in her past.Some things get better over time and love and trust. If you like her, then support her, rather than running her through your laundry list of reasons why she might be setting off alarms in your head and ditching her just because not "every" possible aspect of her nature is genuinely appealing or convinient to you at the time.
