My fourth and final escape the perpetrator tried to lure me back as he did many times. An abuser will walk away from a relationship as if it is a "normal" breakup.

He will will eventually charm and groom others, while in a relationship, making his new supply suspect of his victims credibility. He is textbook. He is dangerous. I remained calm and rational while obtaining an Order of Protection and securing my safety, knowing how calculating, malicious, manipulative and violent he is, and continues to be.
