Developing and maintaining a mutually satisfying sex life can take some negotiating for any couple relationship, whether one partner has been sexually abused or not. I also really want to stress that you take good care of yourself through this, because these experiences can be so hard on partners. If he asks you to keep this information to yourself you may be feeling unsupported. He admitted to me that he was raped when he was a teenager by his girlfriend. Hi hun, I have experienced the same as the persont hat you are dating and if i was to be in a new relationship, i know it would be extremely difficult to trust again in having that trust broken previously. Please help, how can i deal with this? I have access to all the account he has secretly used from work to communicate with these old men. Not sure what the threshold for that is.

My boyfriend soon to be fiancé we agreed we want to get married soon but he needs to get a ring first before he can formally propose told me quite early on that he was sexually assaulted as a boy around the age of 10-12. Let me start off by saying that I am the lucky one in this situation. He displays characteristics of a sociopath. But they can become problematic when they are used to the extent that the person is not able to incorporate or to manage other aspects of daily life in balanced ways.
