It could be you

I read some of the comments and it’s sad to read that people don’t get how vulnerable you can be when you’re in love, even if it’s a distance relationship, I mean, I moved and cross the world to be with my now husband, but I can see how this could have happened to me. You put yourself out there in the illusion of love and the image of what you think is the perfect relationship waiting for the happily ever after, and you have the hope to reach that point and you let things happen because you have hope.
Anyway, great piece of work, really sad story of abuse. But in the end a very brave woman who is not afraid to fight back for herself.

Hard to put myself in her shoes

This was a tough listen after the first 2 or 3 episodes. I wanted to empathize with the victim more than I did. I also felt like the creator/interviewer needed to push her more and earlier in the series.

My splendid life ,

Compelling

This story was a wild ride beginning to end. Human nature meets an online world.
