"I don't want to be alone"

"Maybe she'll change if I prove how much I love her"

"It's not her fault, it's our fault"

"I don't want to live in a world without her"

The preceding comments are indicative of an individual involved in a threatening relationship.

I've seen this sort of dynamic in personal relationships, usually abusive relationships.

The outcome is rarely a good one, and the only reliably successful treatment is cessation of the relationship.

I never had the relationship, so I'm not at risk of abuse.
