Why would someone go back to a situation that caused them much grief and heartache? Below a few women share why they went back to what they once ran from.


My ex cheated on me time and time again, and even got a child outside of our relationship. His excuse was that I wasn't 'freaky enough' in bed, so he had to seek it elsewhere. I kept forgiving every cheating excuse, thinking it would get better. I realised that I was going back because I was afraid of being alone. I hate being single, and I was desperate to be in a relationship rather than being treated how I deserved to be.


I kept going back to my ex because he was the one taking care of my bills. No matter what he did and said to me, I took it because I wasn't working and needed to survive. Sometimes people are in my situation not because they don't know better and refuse to get out, but simply because that is their only means of survival.


I desired to feel wanted, so I kept going back to him no matter what he did. He got married a year after our split and I was still sleeping with him whenever he wanted me to because I wanted to be feel accepted and wanted.


I went back because I was used to him, and I couldn't bother at my age to go find another man and start a relationship all over again. It was too much stress, so I stuck to what was familiar to me.


I went back because I loved him and I kept forgiving him, because I know no man is perfect. Yes, he cheated, but so does every man I know, so I stuck to whom I loved.
