Relationship Expert Q&A's
Name: Leana

I broke up with the last two CPs. The first one wanted out, but the second one tried to talk me into staying with him, even though he insisted we never had a "real" relationship. Yet, I am the one who feels beaten up and rejected. Any insight into this? And do others often feel this way, even if they are the ones who dump the creeps?

You feel beaten up and rejected because his language was punishing and rejecting (even though he was "willing" to keep seeing you -- how generous of him!). The language did it.
