I swear

Ms O, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get my email address to link to this blog, and I don't want to post the actual address here, part of the reason I avoided my hotmail account was that I posted it here at one point and I began getting flooded with all kinds of spam from bots that pick up on that kind of thing. Sooooo, it's basically my name here (all lowercase) at gmail. Adding: yes, one word Ms O.

I usually pride myself on my ability to understand this here technology, but I swear everything that Google has ever done (except of course for, y'know, what they became famous for) makes me feel like an old person.

I've just read this story and wanted to say I'm so sorry for what you were put through and also to validate you in "falling" for it... all those people who are outsiders and can't understand... well Janna is an abuser and this was an abusive relationship... and abusers are very very good at reeling in their victims, manipulating them gradually, weaving deception and fear around them and VERY good at explaining away/silencing any little doubts that come up. By the time they have you completely under control, the options are standing by them or having your whole world crumble. Sure from the outside and AFTER the fact people can say it was obvious but in the midst of it, with the manipulation piling up incrementally... thousands upon thousands of people have been taken in this way, including people who others would say seem 'too smart' for it (including me). These people are masters of manipulation and they operate on an entirely different level to the rest of us. They play us. Anyone can be taken in. And these people are excellent at observing their targets then providing what they perceive their targets desire AND at a time when their targets are especially vulnerable and impressionable ... my ex did this to me (and our rship happened entirely offline) and I have seen others do this offline too. It is not just an internet thing and it is not just a scam... it is a pattern of abuse enacted by abusive people. You were emotionally and psychologically abused by this woman and people who sneer at you are assholes who should thank their lucky stars they haven't been through it.
