I've been posting here the last few weeks, and people have been very helpful. I moved out of the apartment I shared with my boyfriend for almost a year now because he had a really bad temper, was answering personals ads on the internet, and generally took me for granted.

When I left he flipped out, cried, made promises, wrote tons of e-mails, showed up at my sister's house etc. In the last week, he's calmed down a lot and had an epiphany of sorts. I guess after I told him he has a problem with anger, he got some self-help books. One was on emotional abuse, and he saw himself in it and immediately backed down from trying to get me to move back in. He said he knew I needed to live on my own for my own well-being, that he was committed to going to therapy and slowly winning back my trust.

I don't know really how I feel about all of this. I'm just kind of in wait and see mode and just trying to get myself established in my new apartment and get my life back on track.

The thing that's confusing me is that he's staying in our two bedroom apartment and getting a roommate, which is fine. But it sounds like the only people he's agreed to interview are women because he's afraid that living with a guy will be a bad influence on him. I wouldn't care if he didn't have problems with infidelity and boundaries, but before he met me, he was sleeping with his assistant.

I guess I didn't even realize that I'd gotten hopeful again until I felt disappointed by what seems to me to be stupid choice. I don't even know why I care. :-(
