Guys usually fight for me on the front end. After they get what they want, they realize that the qualities they were attracted to are the very ones they are repulsed by. (I'm awfully charming right?)
My ex-husband and I fought for each other for a while... we failed, kinda. Therapy, vacations, buying a home, finding mutually interesting hobbies... didn't work.
One ex-boyfriend fought for me for a year and a half, he fought with his husband over me. In the end his husband fought harder than he and I did.
A guy I dated for a month fought for me for over two years. He REALLY fought for me! So much so that I had filed four separate restraining orders, 9 police reports and was working 2 to 3times weekly with two attorneys, two investigators from the San Francisco Police Department's Domestic Violence Response Unit and a representative from the DA's office.
He fought so hard that he broke into my apartment twice, once while I was there by forcing the door in and attacking me in my room, second time I came home to him sleeping on my couch. Then there were the times he slept on my doorstep and he frequently sent flower arrangements the size of my torso my office to the tune of every other week with cryptic messages about rape and love... because apparently they are synonymous.
Good lord, no wonder I'm so fucked up....
