I have CPTSD and ADHD and was fortunate enough to get out of an abusive relationship in 2014. After counseling, support groups, and all the other treatment, I was set to find a guy. But, like you mentioned – they were so boring. It took me awhile to realize that what I needed was to work on myself. Being in an abusive relationship I had denied myself so many things (graduate school, exercise, medical appointments, travel) and being single meant freedom to do those things. After a couple years of that the men that were approaching me were completely different. I was lonely sometimes, but with some therapy techniques and good and bad coping skills I was able to push through. Oh and I reconnected with a friend from college and we have been together for a couple years now.
