love this story

just….. WOW!!!!!! thank you for this story.

Come on…

By episode 2, I couldn’t go on. She loses all credibility and is hard to sympathize to when she missed Red Flag after Red Flag. Actually, it’s not missing red flags as much as it is lacking ALL common sense. When you’ve been talking online with someone for four years and you don’t try to meet up or don’t mind not seeing each other’s faces when Skype-ing… come on. I could not care less what happens after episode 2 because it’s just pure idiocy.

Enjoyed a lot, seemed to be missing info

No one can judge what Kiera went through, her state of mind or depth of involvement. She didn’t say goodbye with all of the evidence against “Bobby” because she was in love and was obviously vulnerable. I have certainly been gaslit and stayed too long (I call it my real life marriage and stayed even when i was no longer in love). I just wish we learned more about how she was convinced is all the health issues and witness protection/ just a lot of details about how wrong her cousin was, not how this affected her. It was probably all too painful even publicizing the story without divulging her shame. And yes, there’s no way Kiera doesn’t feel shame. I hope you get your life back, therapy is a wonderful thing!
