Yep thats true.
I was in a relationship and yet wanted to be alone. It is a scary thing having to lie and cheat to hide our pasts all the time, so being alone is easy, we don't have to think of what was said and what we need to say, we just dont say anything.
Now that all the lies are gone, we are in a better situation. I dont have to think about this anymore, I have a tremendous sense of freedom and a tremendous sense of self these days.
So now it is great to be around people, but only some. I still dont like crowds and I still dont make friends easily, but thats ok because I now have a ton of survivor friends in my life.
One of the old hands on MS.org said that it was great for his wife, she married a better person than what she knew, once he had healed from his past he was a much better person.
