Dating victim of sexual abuse

Part of me, unconsciously, believed people who had been raped were irrecoverably broken, and she wasn’t.

A healthy relationship is therefore not about having no difficulties; it is about having the skills, time and energy to work things out and grow together.A relationship can be a place of intense joy and pleasure, and at times can produce considerable heartache and distress.Relationships where one or both parties have experienced childhood sexual abuse or sexual assault are no different.Or to be so up front.“I may be a lesbian because of what happened to me, I don’t know.It doesn’t really matter at this point.”I guess, maybe in some way, I didn’t expect her to be so it.
