You might be terrified of what your partner will say or do if you tell them. He used to put you up on a pedestal…and now all he does is try to tear you down. From little things to big things, you feel like your partner never listens. They lie about things they don’t need to lie about. They can swear on their life that they are not lying. A healthy person is consistent in the way they treat people, regardless of their status. Your partner has a bad reputation or a tradition of “messy relationships”. One day, he is caring and loving and wonderful, and the next he is hateful and raging and mean. You are afraid to talk, or when you do talk you feel like you are never heard, your words are taken out of context, misunderstood, or blatantly ignored. In the beginning of a relationship they might seem like everything you ever wanted….usually this is because they are trying to act like everything you ever wanted. You have no support group and therefore your partner gains more power. He or she might be mean to people they think are “below them” or people who are defenseless, like babies or children.Although 43 per cent felt relieved when their decree nisi came through, 31 per cent were sad that it was over.Another 16 per cent even said they felt distraught.More than one in five has also attended a singles night, although 36 per cent think the fact they are divorced ends up putting the opposite sex off.

Arranging a meeting through friends is the most popular way of finding a date (58 per cent), followed by online dating sites (28 per cent).

That is the time it takes to resolve contentious issues such as child custody, property problems and money worries.

Perhaps understandably, these practical concerns weren't the only issues to weigh on divorcees' minds.

Each time he hurts you, he apologizes and promises that it will never happen again or that he will change. Your partner knows your weaknesses and he goes after your most vulnerable parts, hurting you where he knows it will do the most damage. You feel ashamed, lost, alone, confused, numb, afraid, crazy, stupid, ugly, fat, worthless, embarrassed, unloveable, wrong. Your partner tortures animals, is mean to children, or nasty to waitresses.

Your partner will play into this, claiming that other people are just jealous of what you have or are just trying to bring you two down. For example, if someone hurts them, they feel they have a right to retaliate.

A spokesman for the site said: 'Divorce is tough for everyone involved and it does take a considerable-amount of time before you feel ready to move on.
