      I keep seeing this and as a disabled person I feel so stupid about it. I can't be happy because of it, and it would be selfish if I got into a relationship because govt dictates they are now my carer so... Not allowed happiness either way and I've no idea what to do. It's nothing to with 'PMA'.

      @@Roadent1241 I'm disabled too so ik what you mean. I think it means there's a lot about our lives we're unhappy with. And if we got in relationships, having a partner would only change a small percentage of that.
      And yes, once someone finds out you're "sick" they don't treat you as a person, but a patient. And I want a partner, not another doctor taking constant care of me.

    I once had a toxic gf who was almost exactly like "Ann's" bf. She would hit me, racist parents(she was white I'm hispanic), and she cheated on me yet I was always the one she was suspicious of. I did so much for that girl and regrettably took her back several times. Luckily I got my shit together and got out of it but even though I saved myself I still have lasting trauma from her

    On the black eye thing, it is really telling that she was upset about it.
    I had a similar thing with my gf. We were playing around with a door, I'm pushing lightly, she's pushing, she stops pushing, I don't notice it and smack her with the door accidentally.
    A: She laughed it off. B: I immediately got concerned and helped her get some ice, no black eye. To this day we joke about her buying me a wifebeater. The fact that it got this swollen and that your friend was upset tells me that there may have been a bit more than an accidental door push.

    A lot of women who act like her were probably raised in dysfunctional households and don't actually know what it's like to feel loved or respected, let alone safe. You feel comfortable in what you know, and if you're comfortable being abused, it's difficult to leave. That's why it's so difficult for people to get out of some toxic situations.
    I saw a "nice" guy in the comments who said women like being abused, so I figured I should say something.

    I had a friend that was and is still in a toxic relationship. His gf acted a lot like the bf in your story, she would force him to isolate from all his friends and take control of his social media accounts. Not to mention, over time, he would show up to squad hang outs less and less often until it was like a twice a year thing. My friend and I haven't heard from him for MONTHS and I got a bad feeling he won't return.
    The saddest part is, he knows she's controlling but he keeps crawling back, even when they got into a fight and she threatened to leave. Now he's also blocked me on socials, so it's like yeah dude we clearly ain't friends. If he ends up unhappy with her in the future that's no one's fault but his (I hope that's not the case though).

    The only explanations for the door giving her a black eye I could come up with were:
    1. He rammed her head into the doorknob
    2. She "Tripped into the doorknob"
    3. She was eye level with the doorknob
    4. She did it to herself
    5. Fist to face
    But hey, maybe he had a broken door that had been curved inwards and the broken wood jabbed her in the eye...

      The edge of the door could have caught her cheekbone or something too. I got a black eye from putting a saddle up on a horse and the stirrup falling back onto my face. Only the edge of it caught me right under my eye but it immediately swelled up. Everyone thought I was in an abusive relationship for like 3 weeks. Even the person who literally watched the stirrup hit my face said that if she hadn’t seen it happen she’d think a guy punched me.

    Just got recommended to me. The toxicity isn’t apparent to most people until it’s in hindsight. For me, I was in a relationship with someone I was toxic with, and toxic towards, I never realized how bad things were until it was over. And then I met someone amazing. She broke me out of my shell and the habits I formed from the past relationship. It took time and understanding, and a lot of reinforcement. But once I was brought back from that place and understood how to healthily talk about issues, everything became okay. 2 years strong, and pretty happy with where I’ve ended up. I’ll end this with the “best” you can do, isn’t the best for you. Just find someone you can be happy with.

    14:06 This is some great advice and definitely something I needed to hear. It seems that a lot of people, including myself at one point, think that a relationship is what they need to fix all their problems. It really is important that people find happiness with themselves, since a relationship is at most time, never going to be perfect. Treating people as an end goal, instead of using them as a crutch towards an end goal, is necessary for any good relationship to be strong and solid :)

    The best reason I can think of for why she didn't take your offer is that she doesn't want to be alone. People with great personalities like you explained that she had tend to also struggle mentally and it may be the reason why she stayed and didn't want to move to a place without someone. Besides that, not knowing an area can also cause more stress if you don't have a roommate. I totally get why you didn't want her to come in, but I think that she might have needed more support than financially. Just me though because I struggle with abandonment PTSD, so there are some things I can't handle well on my own.

    Sounds like a girl i had a crush on, i get crushes easily , but she was not clingy. But she would basically have dramatic stories regularly about a few guys she was interested in. The wake up call to me was when she told her ex or current boyfriend at the time she was having a potentially lethal sickness (a lie). Later the boyfriend told her parents and they were genuinely worried and want to help her. She would tell me and few friends she will not admit it was a lie.

    I’ve always been that friend who’s seen the signs of toxic relationships and wanting/helping my friends in these problems has been so exhausting and frustrating because they always crawl back. The good thing is that since I’m in high school I don’t have to deal with friends who are in toxic relationships/wanting advice just to crawl back but something I do wish and want people to take more seriously is that you shouldn’t find happiness in relationships. I can understand that we all want comfort and affection but if you keep finding happiness in relationships to be the cause in being happy that’s not helping you that’s hurting you more and most of the time people don’t know what they’re doing. I don’t mind giving advice but it’s up to you if you’re going to take my advice and be useful with it or just bluntly throw it the window and crawl back if somebody’s there to help at the end of the day it’s up to you if you want to help yourself or hurt yourself.

    Wow, I gotta say I feel for Ann. Obviously her relationship with Swoozie wasn’t great, but this second guy? It reminds me so much of one of my former friends (I’ll call her Julie) and her boyfriend, now husband (who I’ll call Drew). When they were dating, “she” slowly started cutting people out of her friendship group. I say “she” because the types of people and the way it would happen was highly suggestive that it was his idea. For example, she was still close friends with her exes because they ended on very good terms, but they were “cut out” first, then came the other members of the friend group who were still close friends with said exes. They only other friends it seemed like she was “allowed to keep” were the ones she’d met in uni with Drew and any of Drew’s friends. However, Julie would still hang out with a lot of us when Drew (before they were married) would occasionally take an out of town business maybe twice a year; idk if she was lying to him, but it was like the only time she felt safe. Any other time I asked her to hang out she’d say something like, “Not today because Drew is in town and he said he likes spending as much time together as possible.” Oh, he’s in town? You mean in the same apartment where you both live together and see each other every day (this is directed towards the SO, not my friend). From the moment they started dating-especially after she got engaged-, she’s changed her appearance because “Drew liked it better that way”, changed parts of her dream wedding because “Drew didn’t like that idea” (although that I kinda understand, I do think the groom should have some input on the wedding, but maybe not SO much), and suddenly moved her halfway across the country, which even further isolated her from her friends, and now her family. She hasn’t talked to me since her wedding, so I have no idea how she’s doing but I think of her everyday. I know she loves him and I know she is happy in her own way, it’s just so hard to watch. If you’re out there Julie, I miss you and I hope you’re okay. 💞

    Been there, She's trapped by her love. She's the warden of the prison love built for her. Sadly there will be days when this guy will be awesome and she'll feel the relationship is getting better, that it's finally turning around.(course that's the lie giving false hope). When blinded by love it's almost impossible to escape that situation. For me I wrote out unforgivable sins, that if she committed any of these sins the relationship is dead. Which of course she did, committing that unforgivable sin gave me the strength to end the relationship. Best way to realize your in a toxic relationship is with your friends. They got your back and when they say run, you RUN!. Anyway my advice to anyone trapped in a "Toxic Relationship" draw a line and stick to it. You deserve better! Trust me when you embrace the next love of your life the old toxic one will be a distant memory.

    I just got out of a relationship 3 months ago. And I’m still trying to somewhat recover and get over it. The thing is, I see him a lot since we’re in the same band.
    He was very very emotionally dependent on me, in fact he was dependent on me for almost everything. Before getting into the relationship, he already didn’t love himself and relied on me for most of his self-worth and saw no problem with that. I was basically his mother and his therapist. He was way too physical with other people and most of his friends were girls. There was one in particular who I honestly hated. She was clearly into him the entire time, but he always denied it. 2 months after I leave him, he gets with her, and the next day, breaks up with her over Discord. Yeah, over Discord. Then they get back together 2 days later. He says I have jealousy issues when I’ve been told repeatedly by friends that I was just setting boundaries. He just makes me feel like a terrible person and doesn’t see any problem with not taking care of himself and blaming everything he does on other people.
    Never be afraid to leave someone.

    My toxic ex was super egotistical (he wasn't a terrible person just a bad partner). Anyway both of us at the time were planning to leave for a program in another country and when we started dating we began making plans on possibly even living together (we'd only been together for 3 months, i know it was really stupid but i was 19 and this was my first serious relationship). Anyway the one day we were on a date and we talked about going into the army together and he turns to me and goes
    "Yeah you know the army can get really stressful and things happen and I dont know if I can stay faithful to you"
    .....I broke up with him about a week later.
    There were other things that prompted the breakup but that was the moment that the rose-colored glasses shattered for me.

    I used to have this best friend but I ended the best friend relationship due some reasons , but the girl and I were still close friends. Then a time came where she'd be so rude to my friends and I, if we were like hanging out. Basically she said she was jealous or so. She would say or do stuff that I would tell her I didn't like but she still kept on doing them, it got to a point where I slowly distanced myself away from her and she'd be like oh do u have a grudge on me? (now by this point, she said she wasn't jealous anymore and has accepted the fact that I don't want to be besties anymore)
    And that made me feel more worse, thinking that I was the one making wrong choices or so.
    And she continued with her indirect insults to me, and that was when I finally stopped like having those friend conversations to her. She'd be the one to come and talk to me, but in a forceful manner and i wouldn't even have the energy or mood to talk to her cause I'd be so angry or just upset at how she was behaving. (at times I even felt like I had to just force a smile so she can leave me alone, or I'd force myself to answer her questions)
    If she asked me like oh give me reasons why you don't want to be my best friend and I would literally give out like five or more reasons and the only reply I would get was like, is that all? Or like you aren't fair, blah blah blah. (she said I wasn't fair because I refused to do our handshake or fist bump or even accept a hug from her). So it went on like this for like... Idk some months (3 or 4 months), I feel really, tbh I'm not sure, but when I see her, I'd feel like just letting her not to see me. And she'd try to get my attention.
    So one day, I was talking to one of her friends who she'd probs say is her bestie now (cause I heard her say it out loud). So I was talking to this girl and my ex bestie calls her from across the class and she goes there and I hear my ex bestie telling her friend, out loud, why am I hanging out or talking to her, I should be hanging out with my own best friends cause I have them or so (I don't, I have just been making new friends) . Basically it made me feel upset, because I wasn't even trying to steal anyone here.
    Then the friend comes back and I ask if I am disturbing or affecting their friendship and she's like no. Then this my ex bestie comes, (don't wanna lie abt some parts so Imma skip). Then I tell her she isn't being nice because she's now trying to be competitive and she goes like u rnt being fair as well cause a hug is a hug from everyone (I didn't like how she'd make the hugs so uncomfortable ). And I was like but I don't feel comfortable and u r being too forceful and she tells her friend that yeah, she can be forceful but I too am not being fair. It made me sad realizing that she doesn't even try to at least understand my point of view.
    So the next day, I decided to end the friendship after getting some advice from someone the day before. Cause she literally made me cry (don't want hate, just came to get advice. And yes I can be emotional at times). So I gave her a paper that stated I am ending our friendship and she's like so I shouldn't talk to you? And I'm like we can but our relationship is classmate.
    And surprisingly... She actually backed off. She stopped trying to get my attention, she stopped forcing me to "talk" to her, basically she wasnt giving me a loud attention, but I could still see her giving me stares or glances every now and then.
    Then my anger on her, I guess cooled down. So on Friday (the one that just passed), one of her other friends comes to me and says she wants to make my ex bestie jealous and I'm like uhm... Then she tells me that my ex bestie talks about me all the time and says she prays for me to succeed and all that. And I'm like wait so does she talk about me in a good or bad way and the friend is like in a bad way, most of the time (saying how I hurt her by not talking to her and blah blah blah 😤😣)and I tell the girl that I don't care anymore, because I don't go around backbiting about her, All I do is tell people (close friends, sister and cousins) what she does to me and how I feel about it.
    So blah blah blah, it is almost home time and she (ex bestie) comes to me, shaking me, saying in a baby tone, talk to me or smtg like that. Then she asks if I'm her friend and I say no. She says to her, I'm still her friend and she says she's gonna hug me (she didn't cause I declined and protested), and deep down I actually want to laugh cause I'm not mad at her anymore.
    Then the question ticks me, I'm not mad at her, so why don't I be friends again?
    Then I realize that, the only reason why I ended our friendship was because of the way she made me feel guilty and she wouldn't stop even after I told her several times to stop. She'd even hurt me consciously or let me say deliberately and she comes some time later and says "sorry", but does it, again!!
    The point is, I ended the friendship because of the negativity in it, that I felt.
    Then I also realize that, she never did stop offending me because of my own interest, she only stopped when I ended our friendship. (idk if I'm making sense here😅).
    What I mean is, she knew, we both knew our friendship was thin and she knew that I was spacing her because I didn't feel right with her and I would tell her this. So in common sense or generally if she had actually wanted to stay friends, she would have stopped the things I told her I didn't like, but instead she continued. And the only time she stopped was when I ended the relationship.
    So I came here to ask, how to tell if she actually wants to be my friend like for real, realzies, or if she is just being nice to me so that I can call her a friend again(idk if it makes sense).
    If I had to ask if I should be friends with her again, that would sound.. Naive or to me, in my pov, foolishness.
    Cause I ended it for my good, and if she was not being nice to me, why is she now?
    So I'm wondering if it isn't wrong to like take time and see or let me say observe.
    Because I don't "trust" the idea that she's being nice to me again.
    Or maybe because her friend was talking or getting closer to me...?
    I would really like a feedback or advices.
    Thank you so much to those who read and gave their opinions (no hate plsssss).

    I understand! Even in social situations, this can happen. We need to identify the root causes of why the individual may be exhibiting these behaviors. They could have been harmed in the past, may have borderline personality etc. The more you know about the situation, the more that you can identify what to do in a given situation. Also one of my own friends behaves this way as well. Every time she fights with her mom she runs away and will stay with the guys she dates until they fight and break up. It has ended badly for my friend multiple times. My friend and I have a strategy now where she can call me if she ever wants to run away. I dont always allow he to stay over but i let her hash her emotions out with me until she is able to rationalize her thoughts.

    Hey I just found your content today, and I'm really enjoying it, but I wanted to say I'm sorry about your friend. I don't know her backstory but she sounds a lot like me (NB) and my sister. Our parents abused us through words, unreasonable punishments, and constant attacks on our esteem/worth. I've tolerated awful things from my wife that I shouldn't have because of it, and my sister has bounced through a series of abusive boyfriends. My wife and I are working to fix our relationship, and my sister is seeking help, but I wanted you to know because it felt wrong to not point it out. Its a really crummy pattern and people with big hearts get chewed up by it the worst.
    Sorry for gloomy comment and maybe TMI. You seem cool, thanks for trying to look out for folks. I think "the kids these days" are pretty great, but I worry about them being taken advantage of so its really nice to see content like this were the young can easily find it.

    A bit of advice for everyone: when he says be happy on your own before being with somebody else, that's good advice. That doesn't mean that you have to leave if you need time to work on yourself. It just means that if you're in a healthy relationship, you won't feel like your entire life and happiness depends on them staying there with you. If you can become your own person, you have a clear mind that allows you to make better decisions, and you don't have that when you rely on somebody else so heavily. If you're happy on your own first, you can still be in a strong, healthy relationship. And to those of you who have built up your walls, it may not feel like the love you may have experienced in a previous relationship, but give it time and it will become something better.

    To be honest, in your other video where you mentioned "Ann" driving an hour to pick up a game for you I thought, "Damn that's a bit much. Maybe she's just a really nice person?" Someone coming on too strong when they haven't even met you is a red flag. It's not often talked about because it doesn't seem like a negative. You want to give those people the benefit of the doubt because they are being nice to you after all. This is just a personal observation, but people who want to give you their everything within a short period of time after meeting you usually have problems with boundaries, self-worth, and healthy social interaction. You can feel bad for them because they're not bad people, but that "I need someone to love me or I'm worthless" mentality is not something that you want to get deeply involved with. Swoozie did the right thing by offering to pay rent for a separate apartment for her instead of letting her stay with him in exchange for her "keeping his belly full" and "making sure there's never a dirty dish in the sink". It sounded like she wanted to be his live-in girlfriend. It seems that she felt the need to be an relationship so badly to the point that she'd rather be married to an abusive man than be single. There's sadly not much you can do in these situations if the person being abused does not take concrete steps towards making healthier choices (ex: taking Swoozie up on his offer). You can't force a person's hand or live their life for them, no matter how badly you might want to.

    About the door: It's not impossible to get a black eye from getting hit by a door or by running into it. It's pretty darn hard to do, especially without busting your nose in the process, but it can happen.
    In regards to the relationship issue, there are some people out there that just feel that they either A) Cannot survive on their own or B) Cannot be without a relationship. Heck, there are people out there that feel it's better to be miserable and in a relationship than to risk being alone at the end of their life. These also tend to be the people who hop from one relationship to another the second one ends to avoid that possible loneliness because they tend to (not always) base their self-worth on if there is someone who wants them. These are also people that are easily preyed on as a result.
    I feel sorry for your friend because she does sound like a lovely person. But you also made the right call in not letting her stay with you and making the offer you did. That was a red flag in and of itself that was attempting to hop again. But you're right. She's an adult. She will have to come to her own realizations about herself and what she needs in her life.

And whenever he fucked up, he pointed fingers at me saying that it's my fault to hide his shame. When he made a joke of me, I lost my shit and was done with the fucker. Just so fucking done.

    hits home. had a super toxic friend who went to my school who always blamed me for everything, argued with me all the time and didn't accept basic facts, was awful to my other friends and to my family, and constantly talked smack for the littlest things i did. IMO, it's not worth trying to fix toxic friends. it's better just to warn others about them so they can't hurt anyone else.

    Also note, the fastest way to corrupt a decent person is to have them stay in relationships with toxic people.
    I had a close friend for over a decade and they decided to get into a toxic on off relationship with multiple people. Eventually they started adopting those toxic habits, and it reached the point that they aren't the same person anymore. Sure some of the core stuff is there, and you see glimpses of that when we hung out, but the adopted habits come out a bit too much for me to want to continue being close friends with them. The thing is that other close friends noticed that same thing, and we'd hope that keeping our distance for a while would be a wakeup call, that this behavior was driving wedges into long time friendships. Unfortunately, it only made things worse and they more or less double downed in that bad behavior. In the past we were quick to forgive thinking that this is what good friends should do, but overtime our friend began to interpret this as "I can do you dirty and you'll still forgive me and this is what a true friendship is". (This was a trait she had learned from her relationship with toxic people) After being burnt on multiple occasions, being gaslighted, and noticing that my friend was always in the center of some drama, (and of course they NEVER are the ones to start drama and don't understand how they got caught up into it) I eventually had to draw the line, and said it's either me who's been your loyal pal for over a decade or these chumps that seem to screw you over every other weekend. My friend bold face lied straight to my face, and said they would cut things off with said people and stop treating me in this way.
    Later on I find out that they were lying, and to make matters worse I was out their defending them to other mutual friends, saying that they changed back to the person they once were. When I confronted my friend on this lie, I got gaslighted, and delivered more weak excuses. Eventually the toxic person ended up publicly humiliating them and they broke things off. My friend apologized and we were tentative friends, and I told them upfront that it would take time for our friendship to be restored, b/c of the past issues. They worked on it for a good 3-5 months, and things were improving. They were growing as a person and getting mentally healthy. Then another toxic person showed up and after doing me dirty again 2 out of 3 times. I said you need to get out of this relationship. They agreed and said that things were done. Only to be told 3 months later that they were in a relationship. I threw my hands up and then confronted them about what they said earlier. They basically admitted to "exaggerating" claims and statements they make to me in conversation, but stated that their intention wasn't to hurt me. My friend would start doing all these "nice" things to make up for it while still engaging in relationships with toxic people and then ask me to help and assist when the pieces broke.
    I realized that this was taking a toll on me when my friends noticed that I was becoming an increasingly bitter person. It was at this point that I realized that the toxic behavior was beginning to corrupt me, and I had to cut the friend off. It definitely SUCKS that 10+ years investment into a friendship has turned to this. I truly hope my friend in the long term changes for the better, and stops surrounding themselves with toxic people, but I think at this point the best I can do is be a casual friend. It just sucks though b/c you see the disaster and pain filled road they are on but they don't. For their sake, I hope I'm wrong.

    Basically summarized the relationship I just got out of. A Very toxic GF who took advantage of me at every turn, made 0 effort to go out of her way for me (even though I would for her) and tried to blame *me* for her being mean/rude to other people. The straw that broke the camels back: My father was hispitalized (and as of this comment still is) and we believed he was going to die....she invited me over saying she'll call off work the next day. I told her no, you come HERE I really don't feel like driving the 30min right now but you can come here and still call off. Apparently that was too much to ask: for her to come spend time with me while I was a wreck due to a possibly (and still possibly) dying parent. And with that I was done with her.

    It's strange how you don't notice it until you are actually free from the Toxic relationship.
    It took me a few years for me to rebuild myself mentally, but my fiancée has been incredible in making me the vastly improved and healthy man I am today.
    Looking back, there were so many signs I missed from living through it.
    Much love to ya sWooZie!

    My friend was in a toxic relationship. Me being the more silent one, I let her vent to me. It made me really mad hearing what her ex was doing, to the point where she has really bad anxiety. Currently she's doing better, but since I'm not in any other classes with her, I can only text/call her. (I'm more of an in person talker)

    I had a friend in a toxic relationship. Dude was incredibly controlling. He had a "Three-strikes" rule where if she did stuff he didn't like, he gave her a strike. When she tried using the same thing, he told her to stop joking.
    They broke up and she asked to hang out and talk. She talked to me and another friend over the phone. She told us about all the crap he did. But the more she said and the more we confirmed that her relationship was toxic, the more willing she seemed to go back and give him another shot. And she got back with him, briefly, before they broke up again.
    Break-ups can be difficult to deal with, and sometimes it can be tempting to go back to something familiar. But you don't owe anyone a relationship that makes you unhappy for any reason. And it can feel bad being alone, but you will be okay.

      @@yakheen581 She hung out with friends he didn't like. And she smoked pot which he apparently didn't approve of.
      My problem with this dynamic is that it's just a manipulative tactic. If she had been doing something bad enough for him to want to leave, then he should have just left. Holding their relationship hostage if she doesn't do what he wants was wrong. And all it did was make her feel like she was worthless. It's not like it stopped her.

  • @amermaidofunusualsize860

    I think its plausable that she got a black eye from the door tbh. The abuse probably didn't stop, generaly in these sorts of situations, the abuser will try to escolate the level of the relationship, ei. asking them to move in with them a month into the relationship, ei. getting married (several years in to be fair, but still). Def. a super sad story, hope she's able to get out of there :(
