Shelia:

Thanks for writing.

Regarding the statistical imbalance, that exists because

(1) People who are in stable relationships do not need third-party advice or support from strangers in other countries on the internet. There will never ever be a balance just because it feels like it should be fair. It isn't, because as you clearly see from hundreds of testimonies over the last 12 years, the conditions of the relationships are based on lies, deception, fraud and manipulation. And that's not even accounting for all the differences which a lot of times just means the relationship doesn't work well for one or both partners.

And the problem with outliers is that everyone wants to think they are the exception to the obvious. People don't make decisions based on outliers anyways and end relationships all of the time when there is too much drama or uncertainty.

There's rarely, and I do mean rarely, any hate posted on here. Most people at least think they are telling the truth and are frantically looking for answers. This is a serious forum where people are making literally very life-altering decisions.
