Oh, were you being ironic? You've got to give me a heads up!

I'm certainly no master of relationships. Prior to IV I was in a toxic relationship with a narcissist which brought me a couple of years of agony. That's right, I put up with it for a couple of years; not only that but the relationship was so horrible that it took me a further 6 months to fully wrest this poison from my life. Lessons learned the hard way.

My intention is not to rub my successes or worldview in anyones face (generally)... if someone can benefit from my agonizing failures then I think I'm doing ok, but I have to *express* the worldview in order to risk anyone benefiting.
