He told me he was sorry he had to tell me all this because he was afraid i was going to take it as if i was the problem, and he said he wished he would have told me about the porn early enough in our relationship. You might be afraid of saying the wrong thing, but say something, anything. Learning to trust again is an everyday practice that happens moment to moment.

Have you ever dated a man who has been the victim of sexual abuse? Were you able to be a support system for him? How to Date Man Who Has Been Sexually Abused.

As a survivor of an incredibly abusive relationship with a much older individual who was also addicted to drugs, this just beautifully encompasses everything I could never really explain. He is very withdrawn socially and has extremely low self-esteem. I think you are right to allow him to feel in control of when and how much he talks about the assaults. You are so NOT damaged goods. I was very supportiveto her, very loving. A consistent household is very important. Your support of our work is inspiring and invaluable.

A priority is an emphasis on safety and stabilisation, in supporting him to develop skills to take care of himself and express his distress in less destructive and hurtful ways for him and those around him.

Would this not trigger the memory or cause more harm to him as a person? He always pays compliments to me but if I try to tell him how wonderful he is he stops me and insists on changing the topic. It makes me feel really sick because he is such a strong role model in my life.
