Love may be very powerful but it is NO match for chemical addictions

Oh, you can't help that, said the Cat: we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.
How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

If an NT beats and/or cheats on you, don't be surprised. It's in their nature. :/

No more so than anyone else. It's exceptionally unfortunate that the view of NTs here is that they're meant to be evil. A person on the spectrum is just as likely to be abusive as someone who is not. Cheating might be a bit harder (simply due to lack of social skills), but it's not impossible and doesn't mean the desire won't be there for some people.

So it's not just natural NT's but for people in general to berate their significant other for no reason? Not much hope there. D:

People can (and will) change, so know that before majorly committing yourself to a relationship.

More like it's natural for assholes, irrespective of their neurological phenotype.

Just wish there was a way to test if someone was an as*hole without talking to them. D:

Watch how they treat other people. It's not 100% foolproof, but it's a start. :)

What? Are you advocating drug use over love? :lol: Drugs might feel good, but I think love is (mostly) healthier.

I think you misunderstood. I'm NOT advocating drug use at all. What I'm saying is that loving someone with a drug addiction is bad because love is NOT strong enough to deal with it. I'm straight-edge & I'm better off alone & lonlely than in love with someone who has an addiction. Unfortunately thou lots of the women around me do drugs & women have to be on something to even be remotely interested in me :cry:

Romantic relationships are a power struggle. Men have the Madonna/Whore complex for women. women have the Lover/Provider complex for men.
