That’s an awesome point and I agree with you in most cases.  However, when I was involved in a relationship with an abusive man (my ex-husband) I felt so alone!  I was too ashamed and embarrassed to talk to a friend or family member, for a long time.  And I found an online board for battered women that gave me the support and encouragement I desperately needed at the time.  I really feel as though that the was the start of my life being literally SAVED.  And I thank God for those kind and loving women on that board, to this day.  They gave me the first words of truth that what was happening to me was wrong and I needed to get help.  So, I took that first step because of their advice and got counseling, and got out of a very unhealthy relationship.  This seems to be a very safe place we can all share what is going on in our lives, good, bad or ugly.

I think that a place like this, while its public, is also full of people that are here for a lot of similar reasons. there is also a certain level of anonymity. Not completely since photos and whatnot are used. It also helps sometimes to know that you are not the only girl in the world dealing with specific issue. I do believe that its up to each individual to decide what they want to keep private and what they dont. I do agree that its best to go to the source but sometimes its also good to get an outside persepective and get some support for yourself. Some of the girls here do not have family or close friends or anyone else to talk to and this is an outlet in many different ways for some people. I understand the point of this post and agree that there is no better place to resolve an issue than with those involved, in this case, your partner. But there are some positives that I have experienced first hand to being able to come here and vent.
