How Many Times.......& Whey are they now?

How many times do you think girls/women who are in this messed up relationships with lying, cheating, scum bag guys take our advice after posting "what should I do" and the answers on this forum are overwhelmingly "he's not that into you" or "Run" ?

I bet you the advice here is exactly what their friends and family have been telling them. Why as woman do we allow men to treat us so poorly and then let it happen over and over expecting something different?

Any mamas out there that took our advice and got the hell outta dodge? Where are you now, what happened?

  • I didn't need cafemom to tell me my knight in shining armor was really an idiot in tin foil. I would hope that anyone that had to ask had come to the same conclusion.

  • i remember recently there was one girl who was 18 who posted the same question over and over and deleted the answered ones because she didn't like our answers. she was obviously hoping someone would say "hey you're right, he just wants space but he'll be back". i know it hurts but isn't the definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? :)

  • I think most of them do the exact opposite of what we suggest. They only leave the loosers after it's way to late and the hardest to put their life back together.

  • @zoejains <---best answer right there lol.

    I wonder sometimes about the people who have really messed up situations at home. It's a lot easier to give advice though than it is sometimes to take it. =/
