FuckBoi’s can be unique, but in the end they all want the same thing.
“Whatever you think I did to you is just in your head….Your not as innocent as you think.”
“I did you the favor. It’s not my fault you weren’t very good.”
(The worst offender)
“You never said we were exclusive.”
“I never forced you to do anything you didn’t like.”
“I didn’t ever lie to you, you just never asked.”
“If you hang up right now then it’s your fault for what I do.”
“You know you’re almost perfect…there are just a few things you need to work on.”
(Charming, kind, handsome…All manipulators have their covers)
During my life I have been abused sexually and mentally by a few men. It’s always been a dark secret of shame in the back of my mind. The first person to abuse me was my father…so naturally I believed his treatment of me was what real love was like. Every relationship that recreated some sort of distortion like that seemed normal…seemed safe to me. It wasn’t, and I didn’t understand how wrong these situations were until I started reflecting on these past relationships (intimate and just platonic relationships).
Utilizing my photography to release my emotions has been helpful. It was good for me to go back to these portraits and reflect on the memories of these interactions.
