I went after you, he said, because I figured you had low self-esteem given the man you dated last. I think it was then I knew there was no future with a man like this. I felt he was predatory and somewhat of a sociopath. I had never met someone who’s mind worked in this manner, let alone loved him. I should have ran as fast as my feet could carry me. Instead, I remained, stung and wide-eyed like the prey I was.
