I absolutely agree with you. We all need connection, belonging, support and understanding. Friends that we can share our feelings and life experiences with. The BB forums are a great place to find support, especially in tough moments and trying times.
I'm sorry to hear about your home situation. It must be very uncomfortable for you, particularly with having to deal with unwanted advances and a lack of understanding. This is not respectful of him to you. Hopefully, the settlement will happen quickly and you will be able to remove yourself from this difficult environment.
Feel free to come back to this forum. I'm sure there will also be others along who will be able to offer advice and support.
