I did date someone that was emotionally abusive and had me questioning my worth. Instead of telling me what to do, he’d guilt me.

Great, I think these seniors will teach something to the juniors because before that I never see such event in the college. I am wondering thought how would it be to meet the seniors for the sake of experience.
