    Rebecca Humphries on emotional abuse, toxic love and her night out with a disappearing softboi

    Rebecca Humphries on emotional abuse, toxic love and her night out with a disappearing softboi

    This week, we're joined by the brilliant author and actor Rebecca Humphries to discuss her memoir, Why Did You Stay? A memoir about self-worth. The book details what happened after Rebecca's boyfriend was caught kissing his Strictly Come Dancing partner and how she later reclaimed the narrative, posting a powerful statement about gaslighting on social media that swiftly went viral. In this episode, Rebecca talks about how she found her voice, why emotional abuse is so complicated, and the truth about men who call women 'mental'. We also discuss love bombing, female rage, and Rebecca's night out with a disappearing softboi. Enjoy the show but please bear in mind that some of the themes of this week's episode some may find upsetting.

Much needed podcast

I came across this during a tough time and it was exactly what I needed. Very “human” and relatable experiences.

Kimmymon ,

Lovely & insightful

Really enjoying these 2 amazing young women share their experiences, thoughts and views on dating in the millennial era. Although I am at the older age range of your audience I am left with giggles of laughter after each episode. Keep up the great work!

The.Honest.Review ,

Shallow

This podcast comes as a huge disappointment and a waste of time. Not only it is aimed at upper middle and upper white classes, but it has a definite lack of substenance and thought. The same ideas are repeated over the whole espisode and it is redundant to say the least. Avoid.
